Can't top any of the previous but the bogus Pam Ayres rhyme was SO obviously that. Too tacky. The woman has standards :D
Solved the lawn mower problem the other day which is still making me smile (but then it did when I bought the last turkey!). Finally gave in to Far Eastern technology and bought a Honda Izy. This might mean something to the horticultural machinery geeks. I'm happy. Izy does the job it/she/he was designed for ie. cutting grass efficiently. I have heard nothing but praise for this particular model of grass cutting machine. The price was such that I could not quibble.
The machine cuts grass. I can, at long last, go and do what people expect me to be doing in their gardens.
Praise be to Offler and whatever gods of the land there be!

Q, any leaves or fruit infused in hot water is called a tea in the UK. Though that's not what I called it when husband added milk to peppermint tea. :angry-screaming:

Easy, one in which the main stress is shifted in appeared from the second to the third syllable thus changing the pronunciation from a shwah (the uh sound that is extremely common in English) oral Tony said in certain accents, particularly around the mersey area the appeared and dread would both shift into a rhyme with paired which in turn would shift from paired to purred in pronunciation, nobody said English pronunciation had to make sense, especially when you throw in poetic license!

Huh? I didn't say anything about tea. I only contributed to a bit of snark about Dominators. :think: :? :|
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

On facebook, the Discworld Monthly page has a book cover featuring an erotic story about a guy who turns into a hedgehog. :lol: Makes a change from werewolves. The mind boggles.
