Good heavens--from your subject, I thought you were going to be telling us that hogwash was gone for good!

tsuwm wouldn't do that to us. We like ketching his craft too much, we co-dependent shipmates.

Not so sure it worked very well, Juan. I sure wouldn't have won a blue ribbon at the county fair.

But thanks, tsuwm, for this round. It is a very welcome distraction.

this is call a misspell, ASp; caused, no doubt, by a lack of attention to detail in HS Latin class.

BTW, here's the googlemetrics on this gaffe:
in memorium ~ 44,000
in memoriam ~ 440,000

(there's that order of magnitude again)

That's no excuse. YCLIU.

Now then: Why that subject heading? YC obviousize me if that's what it takes.

PS Thanks for the hint above. We don't need a whole bunch of armadillos again.
