    Perhaps I am. I was the third one (of four children), and my mum used to say every third one was Chinese. (They didn't have political correctness in those days).

    No, stupid. It's nothing to do with voice pitch. It's to do with context.

    If Rodent can understand it (admittedly after a rather long lesson), surely you can?

    Sigh. You really must learn the difference between the semantic denotation of the verb 'to smell' used transitively as opposed to intransitively. Didn't they teach you nuffink, at that fancy law school?

    Now, that isn't very friendly. Though at least it would only be your virtual foot. I assume virtual feet don't smell.

    No, foot and mouth disease. Admit it - you're always putting your foot in your mouth.
