Thank God, I thought you'd go the Heming Way...

He's out making an As-im-ov.

that's not an As-im-ov he's riding...
I do believe I see an OX crossing the FORD,
and he's slipping in the oil (Brooklyn pronunciation).

You guys better stop that right now, or I'll whip out my Jonson.
War is, at first, the hope that one will be better off; next, the expectation that the other fellow will be worse off; then, the satisfaction that he isn't any better off; and, finally, the surprise at everyone's being worse off. - Karl Kraus

Hey . . . this is vere-ing close to single entendre. I think we should make an effort to clean up our burbiage.

I prefer "intellectual posteriorists", if you don't mind.

Reading this thread has reminded me -- who can say why? -- of a limerick I ran across many moons ago in Ken Kolb's novel Getting Straight. Think it went like this:

A bawd in a brothel did waken
To find all her sex organs achin'.
She said, "'Twasn't Will's doing.
All that rough screwing
Was authored by Sir Francis Bacon."


Bests to all,
