The sign above the shop window shouldn't read POHS but POSH, right?

NEW! QOTD for 9/12/2008

the few words that I think children shouldn't rush to learn are surely omitted already, so I'd have to say I can't see any reason to remove any words (though I've never actually looked through a junior dictionary)

Well, cows will go on being cows just the same as they have no idea whether or not they're in the dictionary. As long as religion leaves to Oxford what is Oxford's, it'll do just fine.


PS rectory
ever so filthy.

I mentioned cow because I suspect it was for religious reasons they'd left out bacon.

PS and annals must be full of grime, too.
