I feel like there is a joke somewhere in that quote.

I think the first record of paying for a good screw dates back to the Sumerians around 2400 B.C..  Fun fact = Sumerian word for female prostitute is kar.kid.

There were legal brothels in ancient Greece and the cost for 1 screw was 1 obole, which is approximately ½ denier.  A denier was a medieval penny.  So, 9 cents would get you around 18 screws in ancient Greece. 

We need to consult Doug and persuade him to come clean on where he's getting his cheap screws.  Not that I would take advantage of such bargain prices for such services, but I hate to miss a good deal.   He is clearly on to something, a discovery that defies the laws and history of inflation.  A 9-cent screw; come on man!!!

I haven't calculated the true cost of all of the premarital/marital screws.
My head would hurt.
But I think it would be cheaper than a lifetime supply of Simms starbites.
