    The disclaimer under the headline is a gem.

      LOL I had to look up tercets

      It’s not political violence – the onion muncher simply has what’s called ‘das Backpfeifengesicht’
      (our nearest equivalent – “smarming punchability” – merely presents an option; it conveys neither the imperative nor the urgency)

      Ah Jack . . . the humungous impact of brevity?

    Had to look up “tercets”, such was my poor education and/or comprehension skills.

    ** hadn’t heard that story, sort of makes me feel better that I don’t need to to it now, even if it is much deserved, and as much as I don’t condone violence, if it’s got to happen, Costello and Abbott are two highly deserving characters.

    ***** yeah, I’ll pay that.
