No Sense Here, Please, We're British

















It would be of lasting value to the world if Stupidity, like Phlogiston or the Luminiferous Aether, could be proved to exist as a substance.

I insist that it does, and that Britain, despite the feckless potlach that has gone on in the past few decades, still has immense and untapped reserves of the stuff.

Here on this blog I shall not cease prospecting, nor shall my sword sleep in my hand &c &c.

I desperately want some of this : Luminiferous Aether

On this side of the pond we have plenty of THIS already: Stupidity

However - we don't seem to have enough garden gnomes. sad really.

I happen to have a hogshead or two of the Luminiferous Aether, available to the discerning client, you understand.

Gnomes, though... tsssk. Toughie.

Luminiferous Aether? I live in it. It is like swimming through a particularly chunky broth.

I'm beginning to think that Luminiferous Aether would make a good stripper name...just a thought.

Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio 1887.
Michelson: I say, Morley, will you look at that?
Morley: Phoooooaaaaaar.

As for your "chunky broth", Ms O'Hara, you can't be whisking properly. Or you are bathing in a perhaps lamb and tortoise casserole.
