Since you started this thread it is now 94-28. Maybe all Kindle owners secretly wish they owned a Sony.

What can you possibly call a corn that it might find insulting?

This is pretty much all I could think of:

Your rows look mighty uneven.

I wouldn't feed you to the hogs.

Your mother was a kernel and your father was a fish.
(old pilgrim reference)

Get back on the stalk, you're still green!

You're no corn, you're just another pea pod.

And perhaps worst of all:

I've eaten broccoli that tastes better than you!

but scored an own goal,
Raising a truly great hurrah!

Well, consider DG, that while I own (and love) three Kindles, I am only allowed one vote. Now, that's not really fair is it?? Certainly, each person should have as many votes as they have Sonys or Kindles. Oh, and my fourth (a DX) will be coming this Summer. Having already put down my money for it, wouldn't it be fair to let me have four votes??

Just saying ....

Oh, and a lot of the Sony owners are in locations where they are not "permitted" to own a Kindle, or they thought (strangely, in my personal view) that the Sony was the better product. So, sure, there are probably a lot more Sony owners than Kindle owners. Doesn't make me love my Kindles any less.

Memo to self. Before panicking and thinking Ricky is planning to skish kebab our posteriors, read the post very carefully and check whether or not there is a "re" in skewered...
