    Ah well. You're right. More like a damp squib. (or should that be dead-damp-squid?)

    We wonders, yes, we wonders just how the OP thought the site worked... It's called MSE, not PsychicsRUs.com... If anyone wants to use that, I think it's still available.

    Squibbier and squibbier.
    What is this life if, sweet wordsmith, we have no time to take the pith?
    Every stew starts with the first onion.
    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    Just in case anyone is interested although even with the OP it's still clear as mud.

    Here is an interesting turn of fate....

    Example of a malapropism "I've just brought a house" when someone has bought a house.

    Example of another dangerous president, John F Kennedy. The Bay of Pigs invasion he ordered in 1961 and the subsequent Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 almost led to WW3.

    Depending how this thread develops, it might even match the dead-dog-in-the-garden thread!


    Here's hoping!
