Re: Stupid question of the month

I love stupid but creative answers. But good advise on calling the sail maker, I will give that a try.
And if anybody else has a stupid question please feel free to use this space to ask it.
I will do my best to give a stupid answer.

Well I feel compelled to ask the second dumb question of this thread, it would seem yaffingale machiarodont is an inside joke of sorts, would anyone mind explaining it to me?

Explaining a joke never works...

I googled "Longest word beginning with Y" couldnt find asnything but got a website Unusual words begining with...

List of unusual words beginning with Y
yaffingale sounded nautical

Machairodonts are divided into two types: dirk-toothed and scimitar-toothed. Dirk- toothed cats had elongated, narrow upper canines .......


It was better unexplained, wasnt it? LOL
