Hi lapislazuli,

Yes, it has got rather quiet. To brighten things up, I shall quote the best limerick in the history of the world, written by W.S. Gilbert:

Ther was an old man of St Bees
Who was stung on the nose by a wasp
When asked "Does it hurt?"
He said "No, not at all
But I'm jolly glad it wasn't a hornet."

Anyway, a new first line? Without wanting to be too controversial, how about

A financial genius named Brown
