An Pluiméir Ceolmhar BS: Are you ept? Ert? Ane? I hope so... (96* d) RE: BS: Are you ept? Ert? Ane? I hope so... 30 Jul 03

I recall a totally serious discussion in the Revenue Commissioners about "furbishing". The Minister announced his intention of introducing a scheme of tax relief for refurbishing run-down property, but when they looked it up in the dictionary to draft the appropriate legislation (tax law requires very careful drafting!) they discovered that the correct word is furbish, so that "refurbishing" would only apply to doing a place up the second time.
