    Yes folks the most controversial coupon in the history of coupons is back. If you missed it here is the original thread. I bet you did not know that Romaine is not a lettuce. Perhaps when presenting this coupons you should have the Pictorial Encyclopedia of Modern Lettuce to back you up. Good luck using this coupon.

    Enjoy

    Thanks Patty for that little walk down memory lane. There truly was something about that story that struck a chord with most of us couponers and deal chasers. It can be such a non stop battle to get it all to work but then to be turned down in such an absurd way is sort of like the last straw. I'm imagining how some character from a classic comedy show would have reacted, like Basil Fawlty. He probably would've thrown all his coupons in the air and started running in circles flapping his arms and doing his best imitation of a cuckoo bird. (no offense meant to Cuckoobird. )

    Here is what WIKI thinks of the word Romaine:

    Romaine may refer to:
    • Romaine Lettuce, variety of lettuce
    We must bring our dictionary next time we shop. List of things we need to shop. Binder with coupons, Point cards, Policy letter and Dictionnary
