More Mr Answer Guy

Dear Mr Answer Guy,
If you have a pair of galoshes, and you lose one, what do you call the one you still have?
-Dick Shenerry

Dear Richard,
I'd call it Erma, but that's just me. (Answer rejected by the editor.)

It doesn't matter what you call it, it can't hear you. (This one also rejected.)

Half a pair of galoshes, of course! (Editors note: While this may be grammatically correct, it is still unhelpful. Try again.)

A boot. (Editor: Do you enjoy your job here?)

If you lost one of your galoshes, why are you keeping the other one around? Throw it out, for goodness sake! (At which point, the editor stepped in and printed a notice, regretting the loss of the "Dear Mr Answer Guy" column.)
