Miker, thanks, but you got miscarried away. I am just a fan, a slow learner. Howsobeit, I'll reward you with a Revd Cherrycoke joke:

"Uncle," Tenebrae pretends to grasp,:--and but this Morning, you look'd much younger,-- why I'd no idea."

"Kindly Brae. This is from my Secret Relation, of course. Don't know that I'd phrase it quite like that in the present Company."

"Then...?" Tenebrae replying to her Uncle's Twinkling with the usual play of Eye-lashes.

"It begins with a Hanging."

"Excellent!" cry the Twins.
