Слава Ісу~

There is more than one way to skin a cat.
Think outside of the box.
Consumer electorate.
Boycott domestic goods where it will hurt.
Where there is a will there is a way.
Don't start tomorrow what we should have done yesterday.
Better late than never.

Enough of cliches, so what's the chose irritant do we use...?
