He would rent a room,hold up a gas station and look up his old flame Babs....Yes, that's the ticket! He was sure she'd take him back, and together they could DUHHPLICATE all the great times they had before he got cirrohsis and she fell off the Harley.Yes! Yes! Rosco would DUHHPLICATE his old life-only this time he wouldn't get caught. A cloud of dust enveloped the inter-city bus as it stopped in front of him,and then he saw her stumble off: the most radiant creature ever to corner the nose ring market....

Etymology: DUH+DUPLICATE DUH:der ofr
