The Trolls are deeply disappointed that they have been tragically targeted for this discourteous discrimination. Although they are stubborn subordinates (and only have three fingers) they lack the acerbic astuteness to execute these egregious title changes. Their defense is that they are not educated enough to be the perfidious perpetrators.

And, they don't speak Spanish!

From yesteryear, another wave of titanically trashed titles, then blatantly blamed on the genial and gregarious Gerbils, may they rest in peace.

A conspiracy is afoot here!

What's wrong, you can't read or something? I wrote "troll", not "Troll".

It might be where you live but a conspiracy in these parts is two or more people plotting a common course of action. A foot, on the other hand, is not a hand but one of the appendages on the other two limbs. It's also a unit of length, based on the size of the aforementioned appendage of a minor English monarch, which still used in parts of the uncivilised world.

Yes, using a small letter instead of a capital is often a form of modesty.

I'm no lepidopterist mind you, but monarchs migrate in North America. Claim the beastie if you like, but what would one measure with such precision?

So? English monarchs have been migrating to, from and within North America for a long time.

I've already told you what is measured: an appendage of a limb.

There was one spotted in its native plumage in Nevada the other week. The Hairy Willy Monarch I believe.

Good one! That expedition bagged some fit birds. Omerta generally rules there but I heard something about newspapers or ducks. Not sure really. “Vendre des canard à moitié.”
