Additional Information: 

"Yo" is both an informal exclamatory greeting and a slang reference to the possessive "your". "Yo candy now" could be interpreted to mean, "Hello. I would like candy. Right now," or it could mean the much pushier, "Give me YOUR candy right now."

Peacock Papers Inc., with sales estimated at $8 million, was located in the warehouse district of Boston. It was a supplier to well-known and local businesses whose clients included Waldenbooks, Marshall Fields, and mom-and-pop stationery stores.
