As some of you may know, I recently made a remark that the good Miss Jane Turley took exception to regarding "Her Majesty's snow removal system."
As usual, I groveled a bit and apologized profusely but to no avail. Miss Jane demanded satisfaction and I was offered a duel to settle this dispute. She was gracious enough to let me choose the style of combat and the weapons. After careful consideration -I ruled out rocket launchers and Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles - I opted for a joust with very sharp lances. After we determined that Miss Jane could not straddle a horse (her determination not mine), our lawyers came up with a compromise. We would each select proxies to take part in a bicycle joust. Miss Jane selected the fellow in the hat and the feather. The other guy was my representative...... You can watch for yourself and see the outcome.
I think we're friends again!
