George Costanza said, "My name is George. I'm unemployed and
I live with my parents." It worked for him.

Peter, I never saw you as a dirty talker. :P
LOL...well, Martha - all I can say is that the naughty extents of the linguistic skills of my mouth and tounge are reserved for a special someone.

Also, while I often have an apparent unemotional, hard, pure unadulterated logical, tough exterior, I'm actually quite the romantic, soft-hearted guy on the inside.

A cunning linguist. It's my understanding that they are in short supply.

I think most of them ER'd because they earned high salaries and were reluctant to have to keep expanding their, er, vocabularies...
