"5 Ostriches or 3 Truckloads of Fairy Dust?"

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Just a little fun for April Fool's Day (but the function really works).

I use this as the title for custom dialogs when the pay type (cash, check, credit card) is missing.

Generates random, "folksy" questions like "4 Chickens or 8 Sacks of Manure?"..."3 Dances with Mabel or 7 Truckloads of Slop?"
