Erik, And so we’ve come full circle. A women is just a women, but there’s nothing like a good cigar with your mom!

You know how I hate to part hairs, Ken, but Anna was old Siggy's daughter, not his ma.

On the other hand, if it will make you happy, I will agree with you that "a women is just a women". We mans will be mans!

Damn. Anna and Amalia both begin and end in ‘a.’ Close, but no cigar. Probably a Freudian slip!– scratch the mother thing. Well, to avoid any further controversy let me offer up the following closing thought, which I think we can all agree upon, which brings some closure to the original posting, which is politically correct and hopefully will not offend any of our more sensitive readers, “a cigar is a cigar, but a women ain’t a man!” (<:)

Kipling obviously hadn't heard of cigarette girls. I see I've missed a fun debate on waccy baccy - unlike Erik, I haven't been on the parterre, I've been trying to uncover the rumour that can't be mentioned.

Yes, Edwin, out of the deepest respect for what Ken rightly terms 'our more sensitive readers' (cf. the posting immediately preceding yours), we have been skirting any unmentionable revelations. Over to you, perhaps..?

Well, it turns out that there was no truth in the one about a recent US President and King Edward. It was some guy called Panatella instead. With regard to the present brouhaha, I expect to be joined in the Tower by Mssrs Hislop and Merton after tonight's (Friday's) Royal Rumble on "Have I Got News for You".
Somebody probably lost their temper when the word butlee was introduced into a discussion. Oh to be in BC with Ahmed or Havanna with Ivanna, Edwin

Edwin,I do not mind the visit especially from an English chap but you would probably want to stick with Havanna in Ivanna (...no that did not sound right). I do not think that any one's Panatella or Havanna would survive the cold weather (-15 to -20 Degrees Celsius, considered warm for this time of the year) if you have, in an emergency, to relieve your self out doors. Believe me I have tried with great difficulty. So, how did your night go at the tower?

Well, not too badly I suppose, thankyou, Ahmed - but I wouldn't lose my head over it. I plan to escape by setting off the alarm system for the Crown Jewels, and leaving disguised as a Beefeater. I'll need a pikestaff and some dill pickles.
I wonder if being a vegetarian disqualifies you from being a Tower Guard?
Never smoke in an igloo, regards, Edwin
