Oh, that means we have no less than three naughty boys on this forum. Life is already confusing enough without this and now Freightyard touching upon hitherto unexplored bear/beer/beard/bread territory. What's next, the Spanish Inquisition? Nobody would expect that!

Now the thread title is 'Who collared the bear's bread?'

Who was responsible this time?

Everytime you post about a title change, it gives incentive to someone to change it again. (But perhaps you already knew that. Have fun!)

If I had permission, I never would...

I think the latest change was either ewmayer or xilman. Was Xyzzy responsible for the original change?

Oh. And it's now 'Who colored the bear's bread?'

Now it's 'Who colored the bear's beard?'

And ewmayer and xilman are both logged off!

So is Xyzzy!

40 posts and some of us are already bored to tears by
your tedious contributions.
Why don't you take some time out to absorb the spirit
of Mersenneforum before shooting your mouth off?

Xyzzy, stop it. It's not funny anymore.

Neither is 'lysdexia'.
I think 'lysdexia' is ilharious.

As an ex-dyslexic, I wonder if this is true: One thing i used to do alot, was read words backwards, so I don't know if having the first and last letters correct would help a serious dyslexic.
