Because Jason has more powers than I do. He can make changes on the Administration board whereas I can only moderate. :)

Right, here's one: which ten human body parts are only three letters long?

(Did I use which correctly? Too late to think too hard about grammar...)
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

Is 'lap' a body part or do you only have one when you sit down? :?

Actually those i had were: eye, arm, leg, ear, toe, jaw, rib, lip and hip…
but I guess all of yours would be right. Not sure I would agree that lap is a bodypart though :lol:

:oops: :oops: Oh...will you look at that, so I have. So sorry about that. Worst is, I was told this a few days ago by someone from work and didn't even notice there was one answer too few... :roll:
Well, let's say the last one is tit then. :wink:

Another bit of information if the conversation at the party starts to dwindle:
"Mageiricophobia" is the intense fear of having to cook. :D

Ooh. I think I've just developed that. And an intense fear of tidying up ...and vacuuming ...and ironing. I'm already allergic to grass cuttings. Luckily Mrs Saxum suffers from none of these allergies or intense fears.

I'm not surprised, Tony. There is something very sinister about them! Image
