I've been tagged!

OK, this is from page 123 of The Complete Peanuts, 1967 to 1968 (Fantagraphics):

Charlie Brown: "Okay, let's run through the two's first...What is two times seven?
Sally: "One million?"
Charlie Brown: "You're guessing!"

(You can figure out the setup—Sally has asked her "dear brother" to help her with her "times tables.")

I thought I'd share the strip right under it, too—CB asks Sally to calculate 3 x 0, and she takes increasingly absurd stabs in the dark: "Four thousand? Six? Eleventy twelve? Fifty Quillion? Overly-eight? Twiddely-two?"

OK! I'm more J's?......OK, K's?......I'm looking at the margin about L's? Oh yes, Levi!

[Oops, forgot to post the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.]

[UPDATE OOPS: I forgot to follow rule #5—I was tagged by Lee!]

I don't mind being tagged, but I don't like taggING, so I will just do it here!

William Wycherly, _The Country Wife_:


When I get me a wife, I must get her a chaplain, according to the custom. This is his brother, and my chaplain.


His brother?

When I start my indie band, I will call it "Overly-Eight."
