Re Arkansas -- Maybe only the final s is suppressed, & I suppose it could be argued that the distortion of the penultimate a has precedent in 'although and also and all'. But not convincingly IMO, leeneia.

Yes, Arkansas, the state, is pronounced "Arkansaw."

But the river named Arkansas is the Ar-KANN-zus River.
I don't know whether the state was named after the river
or vice versa.

According to the skeleton, Richard III was not really a "hunchback," but suffered from a severe scoliosis--lateral curvature of the spine.

Don - he wasn't really a 'turd' either, research shows he was in reality a human being ...

but do jokes need to care about facts ???

Guest, I was not really responding to you.

It seemed like an appropriate opportunity to counter the popular misconception that Richard III was a "hunchback," a la Quasimodo. The skeleton clearly shows that he had a severe scoliosis. That can be uncomfortable in the best of times and very painful in the worst of times, and can tend to make one a little cranky....

When we preparing to act R III, this past Summer, I realized that the first line sets the stage for the entire play. His use of the word "our" is an adoption of the "Royal We," showing his intent to become king over everyone else's prior rights to the crown.

A history I read this past year indicates that the scoliosis did not begin until his adolescence.

I believe that is usually develops that way - starts in adolescence.

As for the money spent on Richard's funeral, the video of his funeral cortege shows two motorcycle cops (possibly off duty), two knights on horseback, about four black cars, and little car in blue and yellow, marked "Police." I suspect the Police car was a parking control car with a peel-off sign stuck on. All that was organized by the Richard III Society, not the government.

When we compare Richard's funeral with the cost of a royal wedding, Mardi Gras or New York's St Patrick's Day parade, the cost was piffling. And it gave something to talk about besides Jeremy Clarkson.

Is that a quotation from Winnie the Pooh or is it "Arkansas Traveller"?

Leeneia, it was a pukka Police Car - we don't have 'parking control cars' (whatever they are!) here. And our police cars are smaller and considerably more agile than those barges-on-wheels that your police have. 😄😄

Tap the rhythm out, Leeneia, and I think you'll identify the tune. I can't offhand think of a Hum·Of·Pooh that has that precise cadence.

Okay, MGM. (It's nice to know that others here know of the Hums of Pooh.)

Ah, my dear, I was actually given Now We Are Six on my sixth birthday -- 12 May 1938. Have still got it. And can when provoked, recite The Knight Whose Armour Didn't Squeak right through!

Nope, we don't have pawkin' control cars cruisin' the kerbs, Leenia. Nor do we have 'Meter Maids', that description was a figment of Macca's imagination! We have Traffic Wardens who hand out tickets, not citations, and they patrol on foot (occasionally on a bicycle).

Now repeat after me..."They don't have parking control cars in the UK, they don't have parking control cars in the UK, they don't have parking....zzzzzzzz! 😄😄👍

.,,.,
Not entirely a figment, or an invention of P McCartney's own -- "Meter Maid" was an idiomatically accepted, somewhat facetious, tabloid-press-style nickname for a female traffic warden, which was Macca's reference.

True, Michael, but I've never heard them habitually called 'Meter Maids' by anyone other than tabloid journalists. I've heard them called a lot of other names though! 😄

In NYC, male or female, they get called meter maids. We don't respect them either.
