Any avid reader of recent RSR threads would know instantly that there are
two glaring omissions from that list:

The Ides of March and of course St David's Day

I'd never hear the word "Day" appended to "Mardi Gras", thus rendering it a
tautology. And after all the French I've read on RSR in the last few days, I
assume everyone knows that "Mardi Gras" literally means "Fat Tuesday", so
this spammer has referred to "Fat Tuesday Day". Of course, it is actually
called Shrove Tuesday in the English speaking world, and why not make it a
double header and include Ash Wednesday as well?

Did anybody notice that the message was from the self-styled Deane R.
Brengle III. In the little fantasy world which I seldom leave, I envisage
her getting together in a big way with Richard D. Lewis IV. If they were
then to multiply, mathematics decrees that any offspring would need to
append the number XII

Nicholas E Suess XXIII

Is that number your age or maximum rating?

If Deane R. got together with Richard D. their offspring would
surely be R2D2.

Sorry,

I couldn't help noticing that it was a prime number, and while the previous
prime is only IV away (XIX), the next is VI away (XXIX).  What's the
significance of that?  Hmmm.  XXIII generations, at an average of XX years
per generation (although we might suggest longer in Nick's lineage ...), 460
years of Nicks' witticisms.  Amazing.

Very amusing commentary, Nick.

Now that really is funny!

You're not bad for a Belgian, Dave.

And as for Tim Granger's "Is that number your age or maximum rating?" in
response to my signing off as "XXIII", Tim you know that I'm a veteran D
rower, so it has to be the latter. I'm old enough to have learnt arithmetic
with roman numerals. There's a school here named after some bloke called
John XXIII. He must have been a real old timer, veteran Z maybe, because
there are hundreds of Johns around these days, and Pauls and Georges, but I
doubt that the Ringos have yet got up to XXIII.

But the number 23 and all this stuff of raising kids by numbers when you
lack the creativity to think of a new name for them reminded me of a poem by
my namessake, the late lamented  Doc Seuss (NB - same sweet name, different
spelling)

"Did I ever tell you that Mrs McCave had twenty three sons and she named
them all Dave"
http://www.kettering.edu/~murp7865/daves.htm

Now that is a poem that someone should have read to the Lewis and Brengle
families many years ago.
