The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Video says Paradox but title says Paradoz... A typo or some allusion too clever for me? My sword is unsheathed but, unusually for me, I hesitate... Am I losing my wits?
Smite away good Don, for z and x lie right beside one another on the keyboard that suffers so much from Jams' faulty flickering fingers. By leaving him that opening for escape he will no doubt create some false justification for his dreadful sin.
...ah, by sneakily fixing but not confessing, has the Typo Terror of Terrible Romford been unmasked?
Ah Don your eyes deceived you, The X was always there but your fevered mind saw a Z!Pah Passing Stranger do not encourage the old fellow!
Dear Don there is no Typo Terror I assure you that it was in your imagination. Perhaps some wishful smiting on your part!
You do get some nutters commenting on your blog Jams. Don't encourage them.(ord verification is "expleam". That may be a typo, unless somebody can expleam why not)
"ord"? "ord!" The source of the terrible typo terror torrent has been found! Turn back to Scotland Rocinante, turn back!
I do seem to be a nutter magnet don't I Andrew!Hey Don, has it not occurred to you that the ord verification refers to checking that the Muir of Ord is still in existence
Hah! Master Jams... You may be more clever than your countenance (which I did just once glimpse) suggests...If Ord is under true threat I must venture up to the very Muir of it to verify that all is well. A new quest! And one that will take me past Dulcinea on the journey (for tender love?). But - oh complexity - what if Muir itself is a typo and I should instead be heading for the Moor of Ord? Well... a plan... I shall gallop (eh..., Rocinante shall wander me) to seek out Ord, hoping that Ord itself is not a typo... It is just as well that I am a man of letters, for I may need my letters to fix many a typo on the way. Upward and onward to Ord...
Help me! That damned Don, screaming he is in need of letters (the madman) has just taken the Piss out of me!
Ah Don a little distance can give greater clarity. I hope that the Muir and the Ord are still there. It is an important quest for a great knight!AH I would chase him to get back your letter stranger!
Just dropping in with a quick point of order to keep things running as they should:Why does the message at the bottom of your blog say "Go up now - you've run out of drivel", when it should say "Click on the 'Older Posts' link at above right to find more drivel"?The universe contains drivel for a reason and it is not your place to divert people away from it. If people don't get the optimum amount of drivel many things may go badly wrong, and it's my job to ensure they don't go badly wrong, while it's your job to generate drivel. Understood? Earthquakes, floods and mass extinctions by meteor have their place, but shortage of drivel does not.I better do a quick check for typos in my comment now of there will be Hell to pay from DQ, then it's back to more important matters for a while. Toodle pip.
"of". Oh damn... I meant "or"... Last thing I need is Don QuiScottie on my case.
Ah God for once it is the deity that misunderstands the human rather vice versa.When I say to go up it is to return people to the world of drivel and thus help in the fulfillment of your divine plan. I would imagine that the Dear Don will be skewering St Peter and then battering down the Pearly Gates shortly
