This is so true. My wife and I are crossword players of long standing and I can't tell you how many times I have tried to erase an incorrect answer and instead of erasing, it creates a great black smudge. As the cartoon suggests the answer must be that it is more profitable for the pencil company to stick that unidentified piece of whatever on the end of their pencils. I wish I could remember that latin phrase for consumers beware.
