So, NSM is gone, and now Asininecritters too. Who will be the next nutter to stand up to the mark? I need a good laugh in the morning!

I've realized that I've never known this: What is a hatter, and why are they mad?

A hatter is a person who makes hats DERRRR!

In the 19th century mercury was used a lot in millinery. It was thought (and was quite possibly true) that inhaling the mercury vapours made the milliners mad.

I said NSM was a nutter - but I fully agree. I actually think that they were a "she".

Apparently, this is the product of mercury inhalation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korsakoff%27s_syndrome

Yes, and then they made that mad TV show with all the grasping contestants who never seem to know anything - Who Wants To Be A Milliner?

As a newbie, I would like to introduce you to FOG (Finicky Old Gits). We spend our time trolling through posts correcting people, primarily because we're probably a bit dull :(

Anyway: Home-bred! (FOG). Your very first FOG!

Is it really Muesli???? <checks packet> So it is!! I never knew that!!! Shows how observant I am as I regularly eat it!
I always thought it as muse, as in to ponder, or inspiration, with li on the end!! Although I'm not sure what muesli inspires!! :o)

I shall have a trail of FOGs after me I think!!
