I love the quick wit of certain academics. A group of Oxford dons , spying a group of ladies of the night , one remarked, is that a jam of tarts? no its an anthology of prose..the last said, no its an essay of Trollope's. I wonder is there any other comical family grouping you might of heard of?

@xris,
SLight tangent --- Mrs. Cabot and Mrs. Lowell went into Boston over 100 years ago and were comparing their equally snooty lifestyles.

Mrs. Cabot: I go into Boston to get scrod.
Mrs. Lowell: Well, so do I, but I was unaware that that was the past participle of the word.
