Now you're interested, aren't you Joe?
You keep it where the sun doesn't shine. Clearly you got shafted by the banks so often that your reflexive response to anything at all is to drop your trousers.

Joe, it's so long it sticks out the bottom of my trouser leg - and that's only with a semi lob-on.

It used to scrape along the ground when I walked. In the end, I had to put a caster on the end of it to stop the friction burns. Lovely thing, it is - solid brass, salvaged from an 18th century dumb-waiter leg I found in a salvage yard.

For I am most certainly correct. My life is devoted to delivering baptisms of fire to those unsuspecting trusting misguided miggilons who think that FOREX is a game.
