#3 That's a nice plane you have there. It would be a shame if something were to happen to it because of one of Iran's awesome new missiles and all. Just sayin'.

#4 In a world of linguistic incompetence,
Illiterate doom looming, ominous,
Where smarties get punked
If they use the subjunctive...
Meet gorb and his guineas from Providence!

#5 I don't think Providence has guinea pigs, so I'm guessing it's gonna take me a while to figure that out. But I do know that now that I have an original ZF limerick that mentions me, I must have hit the big time! :-)

#6 Is “guinea” an insult for Italians, like polack is for Polish people and kike is for Jews? That would fit with your mafia-style threat, gorb.

#7 Now it falls into place.
I would give my eye teeth to be able to wordsmith like ZF. Sigh.

#8 Please don't feel too bad, gorb! Today it's the heavy-hearted hummingbird of happenstance dropping by with a pollen-golden present, tomorrow it's sure to be the bluebird of... that other stuff.
TW's right, as always. Just goofing on your extortionist being so tough he's comfortable using correct grammar. Or maybe he's just a lace-curtain goombah (they got those?)? I don't always think these things out completely. Heh. I mean, what's the point? Those sneaky preps and cons twist everything I try to say.

#9 Oh, and re wordsmithing... don't, please. You're kind to say that, and I thank you on behalf of my parents' genes, but I'd give just about anything (except, of course, years of self-discipline and hard work) to be as casually clear, concise, and commonsensical as any number of posters here.
