'Twit' wasn't on the list, and yet your entire poem (I use the word as loosely as prune juice will allow) relies solely upon it. Desperate, desperate stuff!

Part of twit was on the list. Be thankful I didn't use the less poetic prefix 'sh'.

That Socrates knew his onions! Probably Brazil's greatest captain, as well as its wisest.

Masterful, simply masterful  ;D ;D

Yes - Magic Eye pictures they call them. You can only see them if you're a naked emperor.

Must make penguins seem rather clever then.

Actually, after a long time of pretending I saw them, I finally relaxed my eyes enough to find the right focus, and the effect is rather startling. I have no idea how they work, but it's very, very clever, and I really enjoy 'finding' them now.


Tomorrows World did a show including the Magic Eye pictures.  My son was fortunate to visit that show during rehersals ('Make a Wish') and he was presented with one of the images.  It took 6 months before I could make out the five stars in the image.  It was like a revelation.  I now find that looking at those picture relaxing on the eyes.

My friend swore blind we were having him on, until his revelation.
