I'll give myself 3 out of ten for spelling.... but then I never wanted to join the spelling police
Yeah, but your joke still gave me a giggle and I’ll no doubt be using it whenever I get the chance :)

Just one thing with my serious head on… I haven’t seen “to-day” with a hyphen for many a year. Are you Jesus, or did you know him?

sorry mate sarcasm got the better of me for a brief moment....... I am as old as the hills and always use hyphens, just the way we used to be taught

I’m not exactly a spring chicken these days, but I collect old books on certain subjects and have since developed a mild (but worrying) interest in how grammar and spelling has changed over the years. Most of the books from early WWII or before spell it as “to-day”, but by 1945 most had moved to “today” (and, equally, to-morrow to tomorrow). The earlier spelling persists into the early 1960s, but increasingly less so. Not that there’s anything wrong with either (or any) spelling as long as the meaning is clear.

Anyhoo, on thread… I think Hawking used to spell it as “puff, puff puff, puff, puff”, but removed the hyphen and now spells it as “glance twice”, dribble a bit.

Apparently he returned home from his Birthday celebration party covered in minor cuts and abrasions, it transpires that a girlfriend stood him up!

That's a shame, he was all geared up for shag. Erections are no problem now since he got his doctor to disable his pop-up blocker.

You know he's not a scientist, don't you? He is actually the dribbling mindless zombie he appears to be. He's the puppet of an evil mediocre scientist in need of a gimmick on account of not being brilliant.

So he's actually remotely controlled from behind the curtains.

Bit like the Wizard Of Oz.
It's not like he needs much controlling. All he's got is a fucking speak and spell.
