Swiss miss

Dick Marty has advanced the suspicion
That the EU condoned inquisition.
It's the same tortured song
That we've heard far too long
And we still do not like the rendition.

Report accuses US of 'outsourcing' torture
By Philippe Naughton, Times Online, 1/24/06

You are far too clever for the average mortal blogger...

Just like a Lucky Strike (so round, so firm, so fully packed)
the immense talent of the LS is:

Succinct, breviloquent, with just the right amount of marrow in the soup!

Pattie, you are far too flattering for my average reader...

Wait a minute! You are my average reader; maybe my only reader. Thanks for the kind comments. Round, firm, and packed? I would have preferred tall, dark and handsome but who's quibbling?

Had to pull out the OED for "breviloquent." Not for the meaning, thanks to years of HS Latin, but to make sure of the pronunciation. I'll have to work that one into a limerick sometime. I've already done "retromingent" on a dare.
