Aww man I love them!  ;D

Wishy washy lyricism and maudlin unrequited love are my specialty - so said Lady_Ty

When i was a teenager (back in 1892), Monty Python was brand new in the States and showing on public TV. My family sat in the front of the TV week after week howling with laughter. We'd never seen anything like them.

It must be the fever, but why 'sufferers'?
Are you implying that all the writers in the monthly contest will become bitter solicitors or salespeople? ;D

 ;D ;D Not at all.
Just going along with the joke, the solicitor "caught poetry"and the off licence owner "suffered from stories". I just thought while they racked their brains over plots and dialogue, and tried to write so many words to a deadline, that some of our friends here might also "suffer" from stories. ;D ;D
