They do, though, allow me to have...

Quote: Originally Posted by Holdfast Much more readable now! I have no idea what issue a couple of others seem to have with the title of your blog. It's quite an amusing spin on the Desmond Morris quote. I suppose that, if you don't know the Desmond Morris context, it might sound strange and, of course, there are those who don't like to think of themselves as animals at all, as well as all the rather earnest folk who think that they'll...
