We didn't mean to read it! And we swear we don't remember a thing.

They said "touche," heh, heh, heh.

Unless Deloitte and Touche has gotten into a new business, I should say that press release was a mistake.

If they have gotten into a new business, then I will say nothing....

This could be made into a Russ Meyer movie:

"Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Deloitte & Touche (LLP)"

Talk about putting a lid on a leak.

I said "leak", heh, heh, heh.

Is this like " you are divorce divorce divorce " only even more permanent ?


I'm not sure why, but after reading that article, i have the urge to kill everyone on my floor.


Journalism sure seems to have some dark terminology attached to it. You kill a story. Sometimes you bury it. You have to meet *dead*lines. You might write a hatchet job. Typesetters are are perpetually eliminating widows and orphans. Lurker, you cracked me up.

A bit early for spam, isn't it?

Mmm, I dunno Higgy. Kinda like Spam and eggs for a spot of lunch...

I'd say their IT department is using RSS aggravators and went on strike.

Everysandwich.....not only those terms, but journalists' clippings are kept in a "morgue"...

Deloitte & Touche is a company? I always thought it was French for "Objects in this mirror are closer than they appear." Of course, I also thought lagoon was a French idiot.

Deloitte's Touche would also be a good name for a porn magazine. Or a vibrator. Although they have to lose the KILL KILL KILL slogan.

(My apologies to Jason)

I just want to thank you for spelling "all right" and "already" correctly! I see billboards costing thousands of dollars which badly need a proofreader. (I used to be one, but that profession has disappeared.) Thanks for making a language nitpick happy.

♪ ♫
Yahoo was quizzical, studied metaphysical
Science in the home
Late nights all alone with a test-tube
Deloitte Touche majoring in hooch
Calls her in the loo
"Can I take you out to the pictures
But as she's getting ready to go
A knock comes on the door...

Bang, bang, Deloitte's silver hammer
Came down upon her head
Bang, bang, Deloittes's silver hammer
Made sure that she was dead

neatfreak: have you read "eats shoots and leaves"?

if not, you should.

Dartful Codger,

lagoon - french idiot

LOL LOL LOL when will I stop?


What the heck were you searching for when you found that?

??? ask scott zetlan!

Philintexas -- right you are, and that may be the best example of the bunch. Thanks for the upgrade!

judi: Yes, indeed, I have read and cheered "Eats, Shoots, and Leaves." I feel vindicated just in seeing this book in print. (I am not alone!) My friends and colleagues mock me....but whom do they seek when they want it done correctly? I think they're just jealous.


News of "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" had not made it to Guatemala. Thank you. I will be buying a copy next time I'm in the states.

WTG neatfreak! Keep the faith, baby!

(I know of those co-workers who, when they finally decide they want the correct usage/spelling/other answers ... will finally resort to asking someone who knows ... and cares ... enough to do the job correctly -- and whom do they ask? [blushes] ... c'est moi -- It's a vindication, of sorts, don't you think?)

D.C. -- speaking of foreign language words, isn't latrine French for "bomb shelter" ?

Sondra and U.O: I'm scheduled to go to Antibes in September (can you say "All expenses paid?"). It's a reward for writing a magazine article for an architect friend who has a penchant (at age 49) for skateboarding (can you say "Compound fracture?"). The article chronicled the adventures of Team Radikal, aka The Boys from Florida, at the World Downhill Skateboarding Championships, September, 2004, in Moro Bay, CA. I'm now working on dialogue for an upcoming Oprah segment entitled: "Women Who Love Too Much and Why They Walk Funny." Check your local listings. Anyway, the trip to Antibes (can you say "Ramparts uncovered at the beach?") has inspired my study of French. That's how I know you're right, O.U, when you refer to latrine as the French word for bomb shelter. At least it was in WW I and WW II.

D.C. -

WOWSER! (Yes, I shouted that ...) I am IMP-ressed ... (that's a sorta devilish little critter let loose in a room full of RSS alligators) ...

Notice, I'm not sniffing for Bull-doots or scoffing and disbelieving ... Sure sounds as if you're telling the truth ... Hope you are ... (altho the ... and why they walk funny ... item makes me a little suspicious ...)

If I weren't so sophisitcated (and old) and mature (and old) and altruistically pleased for you (and old) ... I might be jealous ...

Have a great time ... Is that skateboarder thingy for real? I always had the most fun with feature articles ... never failed to learn something, often much, and made new friends in the process ... Skateboarding -- at 49 -- besides "compound fractures" can you say "insane" ???

Confession tho: I think I got that La Trine line from Bill Mauldin ... [Geezer bus boarding now ... next stop, bathroom break ... next stop, bathroom break ...]

Geezercize --

? as in ... All Right! Everybody up ... on my count ... one, two, up, down, again, again, again ... Now the other eyelid ... ???

For those who have wondered, I discovered the headline while browsing innocently on a news portal site (probably Google news). I was *not* looking for ways to fire my accountant.
