Trust me on this, fruit in baskets is not the worst thing.

In the context of measurements it comes very close.

What use is volume as a measure if it's not filled? It reminds me of that joke in the pub where a customer asks the barman if he can squeeze a whisky in his pint of beer. "Sure" says the barman. "So why don't you fill the glass with beer then" says the angry drinker.

Now he comes the grenadier
Calling for his pot of beer
Where's his money? He's forgot
Throw him out, drunken sot!

That was one of my grammar school headmaster's favorite words, and I have several school reports featuring his summary note that includes the phrase "a good augury for the future".

Default Re: WORDS

A few years ago my (American) manager got mad at me because he thought I was laughing at him (he had something of an inferiority complex), when I said I was bemused. He was resistant to learning what "bemused" meant and thought I was just trying to weasel out of the situation and/or get one over on him.

Not long after that I weaseled my way off his team, taking advantage of a corporate reorganization to switch to a different part of the company, where my experience and expertise was more valued, without the formality of applying for a position or having to interview for it.
