YES.

You can tell an Englishman
You can tell the Dutch
You can tell a Yankee
But you can not tell him much

Thank you Rhubarb, neighbours we are and many words we share. So the thinking may be somewhat close. William III? ( 1650). It's ironic that the first Dutch King was not King of the Dutch. More irony, the first King of the Dutch was not Dutch:
Louis Napoleon (1806), Napoleon Bonaparte's younger brother.

Also: a little verse for 7enny 7enny,

To slay the Folks and Cleanse the Land
And leave the World a Reeking Roastie
High purpose of the Gallant Band
And Six were Kids and One a Ghostie.

(now I wonder where thát came from) laugh

Sounds more like Burns than Shakespeare.

Maybeso, Branny Shea, but please tell us this:
Where does your own morality come from?

People like me
and the tsuwms and the Faldages and Zees and other weirdos do so much want to know.

"How, how, Cordelia! mend your speech a little". Please, don't use plurals where singulars are due.
You will not get my answer untill you find the writer you yourself mentioned before and who wrote his books only two blocks away from your's.

And of course you are right, Cordelia. But that aside I do pledge to pull an honest answer from your stubborn tongue if need be, so tell me now, Cordelia; from whence comes your morality, as corrupt as it might be? smile
