one of my least favourite words is 'robust'. 'And' and 'the' used to give Derek and Clive the horn. I've always had a soft spot for 'buttocks' but please don't read too much into that.

Susie would explain that user-name used to be hyphenated until the 2017 version of the Oxford English Dictionary incorporated it due to common usage. Bloody lexicographers.

Perry O'Dontist. The Irish-American dentist.

I'm genuinely wondering what Como was circling around? Did he like round items?

The etymology of most words is fascinating.

Venus & aphrodite....Latin & Greek names for the same goddess.

An aphrodisiac is something sexy & cool. A venereal disease....not so much.

The latter may be reminiscent of a shambles.

There were no shambles on the good ship Venus.
