Re: [DMCForum] ally = ?



Ah, I see! (...said the blind man to his deaf son.) Well, I knew we were
allies but I didn't know if there was a particular ally we were naming a
metal after. ;)

One thing the U.S. doesn't have is rhyming slang, which I am fairly
upset about. My relatives who came from England by way of Ireland used
to use it all the time. I think it's marvellously poetic to say "Got to
get home to the trouble and strife." But the Americans are just too lazy
I suppose. LOL
