eta! You have left me speechless! But...

hork of sopranos [speech restored icon] I resemble that remark!

Welcome aBoard, mherson and everybody! I'm not sure whether I ought to want to know about the "game of John"--someone I'm pretty close to is named that, and is highly sensitive about a common use of it--but I'm curious, so please go ahead and tell us.

Well, if you count a choir loft as a stage, I'm there with them every Sunday morning. What's a hork, anyway--isn't that what you cough up from your lungs and spit out? [gross e]

Hork

I know it as a verb. Opera singers are notorious for spitting on stage.
