(acknowledging Max's grasp while still pointedly admiring the neologism)

AnnaS is brazenly still pointedly admiring the neologism

I'm sorry, but that's just plain loopy!

de-looped???? Hmmmm. Wasn't there a kiddie game that was called loop de-loop? Maybe it isn't a neologism after all.

this too shall pass
"I mean, these good folks are revolutionizing
how businesses conduct their business. And, like
them, I am very optimistic about our position in
the world and about its influence on the United
States. We're concerned about the short-term
economic news, but long term I'm optimistic.
And so, I hope investors, you know-secondly, I
hope investors hold investments for periods of
time-that I've always found the best investments
are those that you salt away based on
economics."- GWB, Austin, Texas, Jan. 4, 2001

Who says I didn't understand the provenance? I merely confirmed I understood the definition - which is what I though Annastrophic was questioning! Really!

Perhaps it would help if you knew that we get hours of ABC and NBC on TV every day - as well as the Beeb. All things are usually explained in exhaustive detail, particularly when there is no other news worthy of the name. Peter Jennings is my favourite for repeatedly explaining the obvious.

Hey, you leave my Petey outta this! Remember, he's A Canuck, so he has to say things repeatedly so that his Southern neighbours can get it! (much like I'll get it for that crack)

If I may restrict the geographical confines here, CapK et al, I feel the urge to reproduce a tee-shirt idea told by stand-up Southern US comedienne Brett Butler (sic):

Italian: Fuhgeddaboutit
Jewish: Donworryaboutit
Southern: Uhhwhatwazit?
