Damn you damn you damn you. Knew it was a bloody trick question, stupid wombat should have nutted it out. Bastardo !!

In reality having a good laugh. Well done Giulietta, well done, no offence taken at all. (sound of grinding teeth for which there is no emoticon.)

I suppose the only comeback from that would be....

Hoist on my own petard ??? Otherwise known as Wombat on a stick.

(off topic really, Petard is not a nautical term) but I will petarr in your general direction.

Not going to be easy. A petard was a hand held bomb that was attached to the gates of a castle to assist the storming of said castle. One lucky fella got to carry the thing to the gates , attach it, prime it, then run for his life before the thing exploded. Obviously this was a somewhat perilous undertaking that often resulted in the poor chap being blown to pieces by his own bomb. The expression entered the English language to mean an event that blows up in your face, i.e. backfires. The word comes from the French 'petarr' which is , shall we say, an anatomical backfire.
