"I brought my teeth just for the picture", John Harford.
On the occasion of John's passing It seems fitting
to discuss "Strange Expressions", just one of many
talents of which he was a master.
May his memory live forever in places haunted by the likes of us.
Could some references to "skin" stuff have evolved, perchance from one Antonio, a man troubled by pending loss of such flesh to one noted as being Shy-Of-Lock.
Perhaps Antonio had a bit of the Durante in him and supposed he'd square the deal with little more than his probiscus.
To which Shydude might even declare, "this smells", and settle for a date with Portia (well Clinton would have).
See John? Your not missing that much.
