There was a naughty parody of that, which I can't remember. Sophmoric, adolescent pun at best.
There was one for CAMEL cigarettes too. It went front-to-back and back-to-front. Something like "Can Adam Make Eve L??? Like Eve Makes Adam C??"
Asimov was big on puns and dirty limmericks. He wrote two books filled with them. They didn't sell very well, but that couldn't stop him. A lot of those oldschool SF writers were into puns and dirty limmericks. Must be a geek thing.
"Years from now we want to go into the pub and tell about the Terrible Conflagration up at the Place, do we not?"
Grassy, when you click on reply, the window that appears should have little boxes across the top that you can click on to choose italics, bold, etc. Now, for some reason, here at work, these boxes have little icons in them that indicate (reading from left to right)Instant Graemlins, Color-UBB Code, URL, Bold, Italics, strikethrough, quotes, Start List, Insert email address, display image, and code. (No clue as to what some of these mean.) At home, though, I end up with empty boxes, but they still work...

I have researched the issue, and discovered that back in 1947, the Lucky Strike ad campaign used the phrase "Mighty Fine Leaf", hence my confusion.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Doug Spaulding,

reseached (v. colloquial, orig. Reese + ache, usually spelled "reeseached") - Pain experienced in the nerves of the teeth (or stomach) after consuming a popular chocolate and peanut butter confection (Reese's Peanut Butter Cups or Reese's Pieces). E.g. "Last Hallowe'en I ate so many Reese's Pieces I reeseached all night!"This message has been edited. Last edited by: Braling II,
