(When was the last time you saw wont used in a sentence?  ;D )[/font][/size]

I don't think I've EVER seen it in a sentence!

Here's a nice malaprop:
"Smith recalled that Joplin started reciting, ?Oh, Lord won?t you buy me a Mercedes Benz? ? the first line of McClure?s song. The four others then started banging beer mugs on the table to form a rhythm, and Neuwirth wrote down lyrics he and Joplin came up with on a napkin. Janis later introduced the song at her show that evening by saying, ?I just wrote this at the bar on the corner. I?m going to do it Acapulco.?--Joe Taysom Far Out Magazine"
"chewing gum and duct tape"
