Why, of course, why did we think of it before. As Sherlock would have said, 'Lemonentry my dear Watson'.

After I had been sucking on a lemon and tried to speak, a chap with a speech impediment said to me, 'Are you taking the pith?'

Don_1 replied, "No, but we've run out of lemons!", Don said bitterly.

Could something more bitter than a lemon be described as sublime?

Is citrus alone who squeeze words to bring lemon aid to all?  Perhaps we can package it in bio-tins and send it to the sour-pusses of the world.

As I was going to Scarborough Fair,
I met a man who had no hair.
'What ho baldy' said I and laughed,
'Wrong rhyme' said he, 'I think your daft.'

'What's that?' I questioned of the man
And turned my head my ears to pan.
I have some custard and sponge in this ear
And in the other jelly and orange appear.

'Custard and sponge in one orifice
Jelly and orange,that can't be very nice'
You're either a very clumsy chef
Or I think that you are a triffle deaf.

君召使擯,色勃如也,足躩如也。揖所與立,左右手。衣前後,襜如也。趨進,翼如也。賓退,必復命曰:「賓不顧矣


Sometimes I detect confucian in Don_1's puns.

Yet I cant honestly say why.

But right now I am hungry and want to chow down.

And don't tell me that's mandarintory!

Please, please, please, don't do this again without giving prior warning. When such language is used, I have to keep my patella's covered because I have shy knees. I need time to prepare, I cant on demand just cover them, or they may end up peeking out. I must keep my mouth closed or now see tongue go the same way as my knees.

LOOK OUT!!!

What's happening? there's esch wan of my knee's uncovered.

Hey, where did you get Odyn's picture from?

Actually I have a very funny pic of Odyn "helping" on the TNS site.  If I ever get to finish unpacking, I'll post it when I find it.

Since Odyn is seeking counsel and defense representation for the "innocent plant in mouth" unlikely story, I would ask Odyn's permission to re-print the photo. Make sure you get it in scratching writing.

I would hate to see you feline bad for getting sued by your own kitty.

Today is St Swithin's day.

If it rains today, it will rain for 40 days & 40 nights.

Ah well, at least there's an end in sight.

St Swithin, Bishop of Winchester, died in 862. On his death bed he asked to be buried in a humble grave outside the cathedral wall so 'sweet rain from Heaven' would fall on his grave.

The Monks thought this no fitting last resting place for a Bishop, so they built a shrine for his remains inside the cathedral. On the 15th July 971, they were to move his remains into the shrine. Legend has it that on that day and for the next 40 days and nights it pissed down there was torrential rain. The monks abandoned their plans, thinking it was St Swithin crying in despair.

Has some bugger moved his bones recently???
