Okay. Honestly now. How many of you know what a shuttlecock is. After a wee bit of snickering, I looked it up. Interested in what one looks like? Cut and paste:

Be aware, however, you will give yourself a dope-slap as soon as you see the photo.

You sure about this? Could you be referring to our termite?
He gets some real neat decorations during the year.

Now that the highway has been changed, and is higher, you get a much better look at him as you whiz past.

I know where the world's biggest jack-ass is, but I don't want to embarass him!
