I've been wondering....must you always leave out Flotsam and Jetsam's pal Lagan? Lagan would like to know what she (obviously a she, it's a nautical term) did to offend you.

Dangit! Useless trivia I didn't know about! I stand humbly chastened. I had to learn about lagan here:

Though in my defense, I was at least partly referencing 2 uses of the phrase in fiction: a chapter from "The Hobbit" in which Bilbo rides a bunch of barrels down a river, and of course Ursula's hench-eels from "The Little Mermaid".

No, no, it is I who continues to stand humble. Though now I stand with a smirk. :)
