[00:09:27] Elizabeth: the other day, and our

[00:09:29] Gil: Student President is quite a card anyway.

And, uh, they had, uh, Elder Springs for 1. 95 a pound. And they had Bishop Springs for 2. 95 a pound. And they had State Presidents Springs for 5. 95 a pound. And the fellow says, How can you charge 5. 95 for State Presidents Springs? He calls you out, he says, You have no idea how many state presidents it takes to get a pound of bread.
