Mq jfred and drygulchdan are always civil though in response to some barbarians have been known to reply in kind for fun.

I think I even recall something by way of taunt about the photovoltaic wings on satellites keeping them way up off the ground.

Our bff Rambi of course always enjoyed highly civil and fun interactions with us and the records are still here going back to 1996.

Sorry about your bung foot. A word of advice though is that only people like Epicure use scatological, foul language and gutter thinking in public. They think they are keeping it real or something but it's like facial tattoos and tramp stamps in general. I know it's currently fashionable for movie stars and others to show how cool they are, right there on tv, but they aren't.

Do people get garnished or garnisheed? Echoes in my memory from decades ago say garnisheed. I will ask Google. I saw garnished on your website. Food is garnished. Maybe you were hungry when you wrote that.

...edit... sure enough, Mq's legal advice is on the money which is garnisheed not garnished.

I thought it might be an Americanism like meter instead of metre which is different from a metering device. Or like "I could care less" or "tow the line" or "viola!" or etc etc .
