Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

UR, I know you are smart enough to not believe your OP.
Yet here it is...
Ok, Brass is not an element. Brass ore? BS.

No. We call him Ole Jim. He cleans my ducks and does pretty much what I ask of him, with no questions. He has no conscience, he is loyal, he owes his life to me, and he has sworn to destroy anyone I sic him on, for ten dollars.

I had a guy like that, but he's dead now. You may even have known him. His claim to fame was his appearances in the local "call Sam" ads around here.

This was a white guy. One of his lines was "I've worked all my life to keep this farm, but when the bills piled up, I called Sam".
