  • I'll remember this, thanks. I sometimes spoonerize herd of turtles into turd of herdles. Used to make my copilots laugh. Oh, I was a wild and crazy jet jockey!

  • Your mother and friend should be on Wordnik, 'gatehinge.

    Does it have a sense of 'departing quickly' - i.e. you drop the handbrake on your whale and it squeals away from Neptune's kerb - or simply to depart?
