Well, it certainly took a cunning linguist to come up with that one.

And it doesn't even have a tongue!

Man, a truly interesting way to look at some thing that most people find difficult to comprehend. Before this post, I never quite envisaged lingus this way.

I wear mostly Arche shoes... an especially cunning feature is that the nubuck models (most of their line) is washable. (I use a bucket of mild soapy water and a gentle brush.)

And of course you know the difference between a group of midgets and a women's track team?

I must admit, Duchesse, I do. But don't they need to be "clever" midgets? Or, what's the favored term these days, Little People? A group of crafty Little People? Hmm, maybe you could say Santa's Elves.

Reminds me of a joke we used to tell in Chicago about Mayor Jane Byrne, which I later heard told about Sarah Palin - contrasting each of them with the Panama Canal.

Duchesse and Namer X: Puzzlemaster Will Shortz's current challenge for NPR Weekend Sunday listeners is to devise exactly that sort of riddle, in which the answer is a spoonerism: http://n.pr/bPK1ho

For example, "What's the difference between an ornithologist and a loser in a spelling bee?" The answer: "One is a bird watcher, and the other is a word botcher."

It should go without saying that the submissions need to be G-rated.

Yes, clever... and G rated is no fun at all.
