Ben & Jerry originally considered getting into the bagel business, but the equipment was too expensive.

Bennett Cohen was my next door neighbor (Millwood lane, No. Merrick, L. I.) and good friend during public and junior high school.

Crayola means "oily chalk." The name combines "craie" (French for "chalk") and "ola" (short for "oleaginous," or "oily").
