Fast Eddy,
Thanks for initiating this nostalgiac trip and making some of us feel a little older. But where is the alliteration lesson the title suggests?

I thought I would be last...luckily one of those tride and true Tubbies decided to join me in my pitiful prognostication purgatory...

Looks like SF and ARZ are getting picked against without abandon for the next 7 weeks! :-?


That, my friends, is alliteration. :-)

Well, Mercer, I'll concede that there exists an archaic definition for 'tride'. But, not that it belongs in your idiomatic expression.
You may be right that I don't want to get into 'this' with you, but I have never been smart enough to back off of a challenge.

Mercer was right in his usage of the word tride in his earlier post. Just thought I'd throw my two cents in.

The word alliteration is a way of writing poetry......
I think the word you were looking for is "literation"


Sorry......

It just rhymed and sounded like a good title. It was sort of inspired by that lawyer in Seinfeld.
