@Max... "now, can I have my gauntlet back please?"

Not a chance, It's payment for services rendered. 

Signed, The Poor Fool :-)

@David: Max...[...] This is easy...

I knew that if I flung the gauntlet down, some poor fool hero would pick it up -- now, can I have my gauntlet back please? LOL

Max:

    "The time has come," the Walrus said,
    "To talk of many things:
    Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
    Of cabbages--and kings--
    And why the sea is boiling hot--
    And whether pigs have wings."

> In this case, however, the topic of the day is cats and cucumbers, although -- try as I might -- I can't see how to work this into the stanza above.

Max....I thought you were an English Scholar.  This is easy:
  "The time has come," the Walrus said,
    "To talk of many things:
    Of shoes--and cats--and cucumbers--
    Of cabbages--and kings--
    And why the sea is boiling hot--
    And whether pigs have wings."

It even scans decently....and because only the
2nd, 4th and 6th lines rhyme, it doesn't even
have to do that. Job done.....

@perl_geek: Is that a reflex response to a perceived snake?

It might be. On the other hand, it's also very similar to my son's response when he sees vegatables on his plate LOL

Is that a reflex response to a perceived snake? (Whatever, it's funny.)
