    1. Jeff, it seems that my youthful reputation has followed me around. I am indeed the co-author of that curious creation.

  2. Well done Bill. I came to this site because of recent comments in Column 8 in the Sydney Morning Herald. Readers have been asking about origins of various idiomatic expressions – which makes me wonder why such readers could not simply access the internet.
    Are Column 8 devotees really that old that they lack computer skills or are they just lazy?
