>From the earliest age, I had always connected the Angelic Salutation with
my undershorts. And still do, although I haven't seen the fruity label in

<< Mr. Knight thought the labels would be the perfect symbol for his trade
name, Fruit of the Loom — a name that, contrary to the belief of some, has
no connection to the phrase "fruit of the womb" (an expression meaning
"children", which can be traced back to use in the Bible (Psalm 127:3)). >>
