Default linguistic considerations

Hello Dave. Um, some day I shall explain the distinction "to be hung"/"to be hanged" just as it was explained to me.

Cheers.

Hi All,

Though his favorite color was yellow,
Van Gogh cut off, not feeling mellow,
his right ear, that bled,
which made his face red,
and gifted it in his bordello.

The tart Rachel, to whom Vincent gave it,
asked him: “D’you want me to save it? ”
He said, “Yes, but don’t lend it
to Romans, but mend it.
Though of me it’s deprived, don’t deprave it.”

To bloody ears not well adapted,
she passed out when she first unwrapped it.
The moral is clear:
don’t cut off an ear,
unless with a spare you’re earflapted.

Some people now claim it was Gauguin
who cut the left ear off Van Gogh.
The cut was an ictus
which I would depict as
a high blow that’s worse than a low.

Gershon Hepner.

Regards,

Simon

Quite Lynn and I shall look forward to it, (although I shan't get hung up about it either!)...

Hi Henry...well I thought five might've been seen as excessive (or alternatively as an unduly significant number)

All the best

Dave

But Lynn, is it not the case that when someone is executed for a particularly heinous crime they are said to be 'hung like a horse'?

Or is that.... oh no. Hang on.....

Hello Michael. I think you perceive the gist of the distinction.

Cheers.

Default canonininonical five

Dave - talking of unduly significant numbers: I note that Casebook allows a maximum of five images in any post...

To Bridewell
Apologies I must've somehow missed the attachment in your previous post. So you do have evidence and you do seem to have shut Mr Larner up. Thankfully.
Cheers
John

I think he's just biding his time. Soon he will show up with a cunning plan.

Dear Mike,

I fear you may be right. Either that or he'll go ahead and publish in the hope that nobody will notice.

Regards, Bridewell.

A little known fact:

a rogue elephant was hung in beautiful, downtown Erwin, Tennessee.
