Now that the E series is well under way and unlikely to founder; we can look forward to the F series. I trust that the subjects under discussion, all related to or beginning with F, will be seemly. I feel a trmor of unease when I recall how many unseemly words begin with the letter F. Perhaps we should begin to list them here and now, so that they may be avoided by that nice Mr Fry, who is so like the announcers on the wireless. All except that common Pickles fellow.

Well, most importantly of all, 'F' is for 'Fi'.

Perhaps we should wait for the BBC to commission the next series first?

Of course F is for forum (forums, fora?)

Well seeing as we didn't get themes like bloomers, bottom and burp, I doubt we will see themes for series F like fart, fiddle, fornicate or something sounding almost exactly like luck.

I was beginning to worry about being rubbed up the wrong way by an episode on frottage.

I hope we get to series F. Think of all the fun we can have with food, France, flowers, finance, feelings, friendship, foxes, foolishness, Faraday, fahrenheit, feet and the furry fandom.

Fry, William Henry. Music critic and composer, who was the "first native born American to compose a Grand Opera", according to the sleeve notes to the CD I have of some of his other stuff. The opera in question being called Leonora, and composed in 1845.

Herman Northrop Frye, whacky Canadian critic who likes to divide his literature along the lines of four archetypal modes: comedy (spring), romance (summer), tragedy (autumn) and irony (winter). Who says literary critics have no sense of fun?

F is also for flowers, one of my favourite subjects and one of my first posts on the E forum. Forget-me-nots, foxgloves, flax fennel, and especially all the 'false' ones, like false acacia, false mallow and false yellow jasmine. And ferns, Which aren't really flowers. Just foliage. But fun too.

Wasn't Colin Fry South Park's Biggest Douche in the Universe, or was that another of his charlatan brethren?
