I think there is possibly a joke there too. It relates to a previous conversation about euphemism. The next letter should be "P" so the person answering the question hastily replaces it with .. "er ... water"

All this brings to mind the famous Christmas card message:

ABCDEFGHIJKMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Jackie (and friends): I'm happy to share the Christmas card message with you publicly -- but Christmas is months away!

If you just can't wait, send me a personal email.

Cheers
Paul Bywater

It's all Greek to me. ;-)
Well, the first and last letters, anyway. Can this be the key?

Just read tsuwm's reply, belatedly and anastrophically. Very good. As usual.

Jo, no, I believe the first el (ni)ņo was sighted off-shore Peru, in 1982.

hope this helps, *EG*
