I've found that itches on any part of the body are most likely to occur at any time when it's impossible to have a good scratch. 'Impossible' may be because your hands are wet (as you described), or dirty, or because good manners forbid it!

I 'Asked Jeeves' but he doesn't seem to know.

This may be an irrelevent tangent, but I've found that 'Ask Jeeves' is the *worst* search engine. I think it's because Jeeves is the most human search engine.

Depends on what you ask him, and which 'Jeeves' you ask. I once Asked Jeeves to search for information on someone called Ed (the surname is irrelevant). The U.S. version came up with a list of pages, links to fan sites, etc. The U.K. version came up with a similar list of pages and links to fan sites, but it also came up with a couple of links to pages on impotence. 'Is there something this guy isn't telling the world?', I asked myself. Further investigation revealed that British doctors refer to impotence as 'Erectile Dysfunction', shortened to ED.

imho you will find the best search engine by far to be 'boogle' or is it 'google' ([Broken link removed by Moderator]or www.google.com according to preference). I dont know why this is so, or who they are, or anything, nor do I have any vested interest, just passing it on.
And I might, whilst in praising mode, endorse our author's high opinion of the spontex wire thingummy. It is jolly good! It doesnt even scratch non-stick linings.
