Joe was sentenced to prison. He was a career criminal, but decided he had to change.

So he learned carpentry in the prison shop. Over time, he developed a reputation as a brilliant carpenter.

The warden knew of his reputation, and one day he asked Joe to replace his kitchen counters.

To the warden's amazement, Joe refused. "But why?" asked the warden. Replied Joe, "I'd really like to help you, but counter fitting is what got me into trouble in the first place!"

It's plane that we could chop this up but why not take a circular route, and rasp on towards morning.

I have very little to adze to that, I mitre's well admit.

but perhaps I can be enjoined to dovetail one or two modest ones that are tongue-in-groove ... err... cheek.

I'm finding the whole thread to be rather saw-did right now.

If you feel that this requires legal recourse, you might complain to the vise squad. They could put the screws to us, no doubt.

It may be time to cedar writing on the wall, to leaf this knotty thread be, and bough out. In other words, time to Cover Your Ash.
