    A Chicago salesman on a business trip to Boston had a few hours to kill before catching a plane home. Remembering an old friend's advice to try some broiled scrod, a favorite fish in Boston, he hopped into a cab and asked the driver, "Say, do you know where I could get scrod around here?"

    "Pal," replied the driver, "I've heard that question a thousand times, but this is the first time in the passive pluperfect subjunctive."
