I deleted that post and banned the poster. Her occupation and place of abode were very iffy indeed.

Makes Bondee's post seem somewhat - surrealist.

I think we're supposed to read jacks in stead of Jack's.

Oh, I think that's because of the old joke of grammar being the difference between helping your uncle, Jack, off a horse, and helping your uncle jack off a horse.

Not to mention the difference being showing your shit and showing you're shit.

Me.

I could have asked, but that rather spoils the fun in a frog dissection sort of way. As it happens, I hadn't heard the Uncle Jack thing, so I hadn't much hope there.

The phrase 'Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door' has frequently been misattributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson.

In fact what he said was, 'If a man has good corn, or wood, or boards, or pigs, to sell, or can make better chairs or knives, crucibles or church organs, than anybody else, you will find a broad hard-beaten road to his house, though be it in the woods'
