RE: the flat caps. Each person in the crowd had thier own faithful whippet at their feet who was trained to retrieve the thrown hats, as well as being able to go and buy thier owner a bag of jellied eels at half time. Interestingly though the hat-throwing problem wasn't very prevalant because goals were very rare. Only six goals were scored in all football matches between 1940 and 1950, due to the fact players boots weighed 25lb each, and the ball was made of lead.

They offer you Brits your poo on a STICK??? There in the colonies we have to dig our poo out of a paper bag, fair and square. I swear, you guys, you get all the luck...swell accents and sticks for weilding your McPoo's.

I always wondered that same thing about graduations. Even though I myself have graduated, at least once. I must have clung to my mortarboard, petrified. Anyway, thank you for all the lovely comments. (I love comments, don't you?) I've been meaning to tell you that yes, a dutch oven is a roasting pan, but it also refers to the practice of farting and pulling the covers over your bed-mate's head, sealing in the, flavor. There, I've said it. Eeek!
