Dear max: One of the first words I learned was "Po".By being made to sit on one.
It was years before I learned that my mother had picked up
a few French words from a servant.
So you win the hand painted pot.

A po face is necessary

Interesting. That's not quite what the Forest says:

AHD4, on the other hand:

The Forest seems to think it's more of a slightly expanded form of paralipsis.

Well Faldage, in my defence, I will say that I wouldn't know rhetoric if it jumped up and bit me, and so I just found the definition on the site that Dr Bill linked to. That's all this pair o' lips is saying on the matter.

I hadn't seen the definition on Dr Bill's site; it didn't seem to work with my creaky Opera, so I went to Silva Rhetoricae and they seemed to disagree. I now, thanks to Internet Exploder, see that virtualsalt and the AHD agree with you. This leaves me in something of a quandry. I had always trusted Silva.

That is interesting. It also seems to be a road well-travelled here: http://snurl.com/347f
