Default Re: What put the ape in apricots...

If that's the case I'm in big trouble. But I digress:



"Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the "ape" in apricot? What have they got that I ain't got?"



Courage...

I might point out that Italy is one of the members of the coalition in the war in Iraq.

You forgot the apostrophe in between "It" and "s", which would be short for "It is". The way you typed it signifies possession and is incorrect grammar.



btw, I have a bachelor's degree.

Presumably the purpose of a honorary degree is to recognize excellence in diverse fields. While no one would quible with VR's exellence, it is instructive to review the onboard video available at MotoGP.com of last Sunday's race. Rossi make a slow start and a gaggle of riders pull away including Hayden who streams past him in an excellent start. Rossi blows by Hayden almost immediately and picks off the rest in less than a full lap . I think he deliberately slowed to put on a show in keeping with his showman rep. The man is a master without peer.
