Pun of The Day.....

Back in the 1800s the Tates Watch Company of Massachusetts wanted to produce other products and, since they already made the cases for pocket watches, decided to market compasses for the pioneers traveling west. It turned out that although their watches were of finest quality; their compasses were so bad that people often ended up in Canada or Mexico rather than California. This, of course, is the origin of the expression ...

... "He who has a Tates is lost!"

Thanks to Grouchy Old Cripple who got this one from Airboss.
