Thread Name: Honorary doctorate for m.carthy
Subject: RE: Honorary doctorate for m.carthy
Can't see that getting a dunt ("thump" or "wound or mark therefrom" , per Chambers Dictionary ... I do love looking things up in the dictionary!) would be a pleasant way to spend any Sunday afternoon !! Maybe this says something about young Ralphie's life style that's better kept quiet ???? [grin]
Oh and by the way, Ralphie - mortar boards don't make good frisbies - we tried that in my days at uni many moons ago ... it's the shape you know ... it's not terribly aerodynamic.
To revert to the proper gist of the thread, many congratulations to Martin on getting further due recognition for his good work.
