“Can you pass me a Kleenex?” “Did you Swiffer the floors?” “Can you Mapquest the nearest post office?” “I need some Starbucks.” What do the above sentences all have in common?

But our romantic gaze quickly turned to one of horror when we spotted a haggard woman with a flesh-eaten face dining at one of the tables. She was jabbering away to a man who looked equally undead.
