& I can't claim credit for 'Scrimshaw'. It comes from a Tim Robbins anecdote. He was at this party, and some lady asks him 'weren't you in that prison film.......what was it called now...Shinkshank? ...Singsonk? .....Shoncrank?....oh yeah, that was it, Scrimshaw Redemption...' I think Tim was mildly amused and bemused, and replied......'yes, that's the one'. What a gentleman.
FYI, stupid is not the only definition of obtuse, and my pride in you is independent of your ability to adopt standard UK spelling.
