    Oh, I get it. But the game will last much longer if it's ONE letter from any word in the title. "A Room of one's ow." A sad tale of a misplaced boot scraper. I still can't do paragraphs and no ****** will tell me how.
  2. Ride and Prejudice
    (the pro or anti hunt brigade handbook)

    (the story of a truly monstrous send off)
  9. You're probably right CH - as I don't read German very well, perhaps it was a gay memoir of Weimar Berlin?

    Then there's Baloo's attempts to surprise Mowgli in The Jungle, Boo!
    Henry James confuses Robin Hood with the Camelot legends in The Golden Bow
    there are some rather confusing accounts of the Six Wives of Henry VII
    there's the drama abour gambling in Scotland - Mac Bet
    and HG Welles' prescient story of election forecasting, The History of Mr Poll

    That should be c*o*c*k*s. What DO they do on this site when we wish to discuss poultry?
