John Falstaff Free

I was "Earl the crokydile scientest" for many years but that was a very old joke with my sister and it's cumbersome. John Falstaff is "Old, fat, lazy, selfish, dishonest, corrupt, thieving, manipulative, boastful, and lecherous, Falstaff is, despite his many negative qualities, perhaps the most popular of all of Shakespeare’s comic characters. "

    I shall even remember to bring my wallet, instead of pretending I forgot it, in honor of someone who uses “shall” to indicate purpose instead of mere causation (“will”)—people who care about grammar deserve free drinks. And if Grammar shows up, I"ll buy HER a drink, too! ;-)

    Leo, I miss newspapers, too. Back when I was a lad, everybody took either the morning paper or the afternoon paper, or both, like my family. Papers took pride in keeping the public informed, and the people felt an obligation to know what was going on in our world, so we could make informed judgements.

    The nickel had a picture of a bee on it in those days. If you wanted change, you’d say “Give me five bees for a quarter.” Men wore onions on their belts—it was the style of the time. The Kaiser stole our word “twenty.”

    It’s against federal law to offer human research subjects an amount of compensation that presents “an undue influence” to their decision to participate. Personally, I think that doesn’t apply, because cats are not humans. But I’ve never met a cat who believed that.
