and the one half maraschino cherry we fought over.

To be fair, my mom bought Del Monte fruit cocktail, and they showed you exactly what you were getting: One measly half of a maraschino cherry! And you're right, it was a prize and it NEVER went into the stupid Jello.

You could sue them for not containing  "halved-cherries" (pl.)

Their lawyers claimed they're referring to "the cherries" they use in the "combination of five fruits". The amount of cherries you get is half of one.

It's like Flip Wilson's All-You-Can-Drink-For-A-Dime Lemonade Stand. You already had a cup? Well, that's all you can drink for a dime!

You'll take a cut in celery for re-using a vegetable, but you've bean a good sprout, so we won't beet your gourd or squash your melon.

It's a squishy slope that comes to no gourd.

No, "Jello" is a brand name- for a type of gelatine, not jelly.  (Unless "jelly" is used in England to mean gelatine rather than a fruit spread for bread.)

Welcome to the party!

"Phi for All" is starting to make way more sense to me as a forum moniker.  

In the presence of such stunning punning virtuosity, it could cause my art to choke! 

Is it time to plantain other topic?
