    Yeah they do; slant rhyme.

    Edit: Hmm...on second thought, technically, it is normal rhyme... :bonk:

    >> Yes, I'm sure that in the future one of the contracts I'll have to sign for will be in riddles. If they want us to be able to filter what people are saying then they should teach us more practical methods and texts.<<

    Hey if you can find the hidden meaning in Browing's or D.H. Lawrence's poems you might have a chance of understanding lawyer double speak.

    Try 'Snap-dragon' or 'Cherry Blossom' to see what I mean (they are both about the same thing, gardening and/or sex).

    As to the validity of 'pugnence', Ethic I think you need to talk to Lewis Carrol for this one. (He makes up ALL the words the evil bastard)

    "Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe."
    "Man alone suffers so excruciatingly in the world that he was compelled to invent laughter."
    Friedrich Nietzsche

    "I spent a lot of my money on booze, birds and fast cars......the rest I squandered."
    George Best

    Winston Churchill

    I don't particularly like "Jabberwocky." Let people write their bad poetry, and then let them keep it to themselves because I don't want to see what they call "art" or "poetry," because almost all of it sucks.
    Away.
