  1. Number 3 may be the most unique visually, but number 2 is without question THE most degrading! Having to cart your husband away in a wheelbarrow?! Poor Ethel. This has probably happened before. I like how the hostess tried to console the poor wife to the extent she could. What else could she do? Priceless facial expressions.

    # 5 is up there too. The real meat and potatoes cartons are numbers 1, 4, & 6. Tell us how you really feel next time.
