I can't be bothered today. Sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm not your slave, you know. You can't go round treating a chap like a beast of burden. I have a lot of important things to drink. If you really must read something, I recommend that you have a look at this splendid little post on the use of the word hirquitalliency in seventeenth century erotica.

It's vital and important information.

P.S. Thanks to the Antipodean for this.


  1. ...but you're much more entertaining.

  2. As Tom Lehrer said "when at home I shilly a little in the morning leaving some time to shally in the afternoon"

  3. Dogberry, when you've finished your vinomadefied sulking and subsequent hangover, I think you need to add a label for our good friend Sir Urquhart.

  4. How right you are (as the pollster said to the fascist).
