Dorian revisited

Postby wurdpurrson » Tue Aug 21, 2012 8:16 pm

Applying the suffix -ian to "dory" in the same way that one applies the suffix to "library": one who operates a dory is a dorian, one who operates/works in a library is a librarian.

I don't usually enjoy puns. They often seem literally to be "lame," i.e. to "walk" on crutches, but in this case I must compliment The Good Doctor and I must compliment you! THIS is EXCELLENT! Wow! I FINALLY see it. (I guess I'm not exactly bending the needle on the IQ-meter. Jeez.. Is that thing even plugged in?!...)
