Mort, nickname of Andrew Mortimer. Messiest and most inept cook ever in the RAAF. Or, a great quantity of burnt and buggered pots. Or, the death knell of overworked pot bashers.

Mora.

Quote:
Oh, I should like to ride the seas,
A roaring buccaneer;
A cutlass banging at my knees,
A dirk behind my ear.
And when my captives' chains would clank
I'd howl with glee and drink,
And then fling out the quivering plank
And watch the beggars sink.
~Dorothy Parker
Song of Perfect Propriety


dire

A damsel with a dulcimer
In a vision once I saw:
It was an Abyssinian maid,
And on her dulcimer she played,

Drat, drat and double drat. I was going to say "Pussy's in the WELL". Oh well, perhaps I'll be content with - Ayre. Reluctantly.
