A promise to pay
Should be seen as a debt
The key words to know
To validate Gore
With profuse apologies to the ghost of J.P. Morgan and those who taught him the five C's of credit:
Capital, Collateral, Capacity, Conditions and Character.
Update: I knew "refute" was backwards, thanks for validate.
I ain't no Betjeman*.
Pretty quick with the email.
I don't know who the people behind this challenge are, I don't know if they're good for the hundo, I don't know if they'll try to weasel.
I thought I'd get the word out to CI's loyal (and long-suffering), smart (and good-looking) readers.
Update II: I was just sent the press release. The folks behind the challenge are Junkscience. I don't know them, but I visit the site.
*John Betjeman, Poet Laureate of England whipped up this little bit (and a thousand others). Tough to beat for meter:
Miss J. Hunter Dunn, Miss J. Hunter Dunn,
Furnish'd and burnish'd by Aldershot sun,
What strenuous singles we played after tea,
We in the tournament - you against me!
Love-thirty, love-forty, oh! weakness of joy,
The speed of a swallow, the grace of a boy,
With carefullest carelessness, gaily you won,
I am weak from your loveliness, Joan Hunter Dunn.
Miss Joan Hunter Dunn, Miss Joan Hunter Dunn,
How mad I am, sad I am, glad that you won,
The warm-handled racket is back in its press,
But my shock-headed victor, she loves me no less....
Although snobs don't much care for it.
Here's the "Challenge".
