And FagAsh as FWit
Clearly, the Right Thing for Lilian to do is to throw herself onto the pyre.
I’ve always seen her as more settee than suttee.

No, Dahlink; really, don’t.
It’s quite possible to use bovine gas safely
And next time you have a sly cigarette kindly let me know so I can vacate the kitchen
