Eutrepismus


Eutrepismus (eu-tre-pis’-mus): Numbering and ordering the parts under consideration. A figure of division, and of ordering.

It’s as easy as one, two, three: 1. Buy it; 2. Use it; 3. Use it again! Batteries not included.*

*Caution: May cause slothfulness, hallucinations, gas, self-loathing, and loss of appetite. Not recommended for use when driving, standing, walking, jumping, swimming, meditating, or consuming alcohol. If you can’t stop using it, call the Better Business Bureau and ask for Pat.
