Butcher, Baker and Candlestick Maker

Butcher, Baker and Candlestick Maker

 The only butcher I’ve ever known has died. Sam the Butcher from the Brady Bunch passed away last week. You remember the boyfriend of Alice? Does anyone here know a butcher or have a butcher? (In fact, does anyone have a maid like Alice?) There are some girls at the Deli who slice the lunch meat and I guess there are some men who hand you some beef from the other side of the counter. I select it from the window or get it prepackaged (gasp!). I guess that someone had to cut it that way since I doubt it came from the cow all sliced and diced. Really though, I don’t know anyone at all who is a butcher. If I don’t know and butcher and you don’t know a butcher, are there not any more butchers? Do machines now cut the beef exactly perfect to get that cut that people insist on having?
