    I went to the Patent office to register some of my inventions.
    I went to the main desk to sign in and the lady at the desk had a form that had to be filled out
    She wrote down my personal info and then asked me what I had invented.

    I said, “a folding bottle".She said, "Okay, what do you call it?"
    "A Fottle."

    "What else do you have."

    "I have also invented a folding carton."

    Again she said, "what do you call it?"

    "A Farton."

    She sniggered and said, "Those are silly names for products and one of them sounds kind of crude."

    I was so upset by her comment that I grabbed the form and left the office without even telling her about my folding bucket.
