A frantic young woman rushed into Abe's Able Dry Cleaners and said to the man behind the counter, "Listen, I've got a terrible problem. I spilled ketchup on this dress, and I need it cleaned in two hours. Can you do it?"

"Sure," said the owner, "but tell me, why is there a hamburger emblem on the dress?"

"Well, you see," she replied, "a fast-food chain elected me Burger Queen of 2002. 1 have to wear that dress at my crowning ceremony in two hours. That's why I'm in a rush. Can you deliver it to me, Michelle Getty, at this address?"

She handed him a card.

"OK, I'll take care of it," he said.

As soon as the young woman left, Abe went to work on the dress. In an hour and a half, he was finished.

As he was going out the door, one of his employees stopped him and asked how to clean a certain fabric.

"I can't talk now," Abe shouted. "I have to deliver the Getty's burger-dress."
