Subject: RE: Help: Meaning of 'Chicken on a Raft'
Well, everyone might not, Tone: keep on sighing.

But some reference works do -- see my post 0145pm on 11 Mar. Sigh all you like but you can't sigh all authorities away.

You call me pigheaded; why can't you get it into your thick skull that, in common with all folklore and many other artefacts and creations, more than one version can exist - and the one you happen to favour or like best -- & even the one Cyril Tawney did -- need not be the definitively most commonly accepted one?

Pig-head! & Big-head!
