That's almost poetic.

I believe @Bitter but optimistic has a background in literature and textual analysis. He might be able to help you out.

Truth be told, I'm in no position to s***can anyone's English. Living in the Japans as long as I have and having spoken my non-native language the majority of the time for the last 7 years, I'm begining to slip on the English language front.

 

Geez Col ...... It's taken me a while to respond because I was really quite touched by your calling upon my expertise.

And yes .... at the risk of sounding boastful I was rather at the forefront ( avant- garde even) in in certain areas of textual analysis.

However, that was in the past, and the works that I focussed on - mainly Flint and Heffner- are now considered .... well, shall we say passe'.

I am afraid I can be of little assistance in these current debates.

Any man who could decipher both of Enyaw’s ‘The value of pick 2’ and deeluded’s ‘Killed by kindness’ threads is a man whose abilities are not to be sneezed at.

I think he's trying to suggest that your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

Either that, or his hovercraft is full of eels.

Nice lip and scolded.

Scolder.

 

Anyway  here's some trivea that I'm sure Mr DS knows, but I only discovered it recently. 

 

Why is Melbourne Football Club called the Demons?

Melbourne's fortunes were lifted however for the 1933 season when it lured Richmond's premiership winning coach Frank "Checker" Hughes and Richmond's secretary Percy Page to the club. Hughes was a tough and disciplined coach inspiring the changing of the club's nickname from the Fuchsias to the Demons.
I cant really picture a pink flower on my  growing collection of footy beanies
We certainly no longer wilt like the pretty but soft Fuscia
We also cant be accused of bruise free football.
I'm sure Mr Lever can attest to this
Perhaps the dockers fortunes ⁸will change if they rebrand as the Freo fascias?

I assume you mean Weidermann, because Macdonald is still injured and Browns not playing.

At least you can spell Brown. Should I be satisfied with that?

It's a little known fact that Checker Hughes also inspired Johnny Rotten to pen his immortal tune "God Save The Queen" with the refrain of "No fuchsia, no fuchsia, no fuchsia for me!".
