Thanks to the redemptve advice (Please don't add an ASS to advice because Queen's Engloish is spoken here, don't poke here and dare!) given by thy caring PM and DPM, "Yes, I did tighten my belt, but not to its last notch, only the second lust!"

FATIQUED. Now don't correct my spelling todie, that "Q" there was delberate, so to get my ER' attention. (Antares, I'm exceedingly kind to Thee, kindred spirit, ER is Esteemed Reader in the singlar or plural, so that apostrophe stays!)And Thee is a show-off from 1901 AD from a fast-food chain who engaged Desi to spin some engaging taglie:
"Come one, come all Thee, Come Ye to 1901 in Glee
Eat as mush as Ye can or cunt
Don't sayeth Thee, you die from want!"
They generously gifted Desi enough "V"ouchers to lust a lifetime;

The oldest British joke dates back to the 10th
century and reveals the bawdy face of the Anglo-
