I hope like hell the tank was empty when they started cutting on it! Probably was, but you can never tell about some people.
Amos, I apologize for mistaking "a gwine" for "agwine." Obviously you have a later dictionary than I. I wish, however, point out that gwine is a wine cellar management program written in perl, and for information on "a" I refer you to the repetition section at perdocs.perl.org.
On further investigation, however, I found that the expression "a gwine" in Old Meänkieli (Enontekiö dialect) refers to "the heroic though solitary copulatory acts of the [now extinct] Arctic warthog when stranded on a melting bit of an iceberg." I thought you'd want to know.
