    Charity: a system whereby pop stars can raise both lots of money and their personal profile, although it is a moot point as to which was their original aim.

    Faith:- A word used to charitably observe acts of gullibility, stupidity and madness.

    "I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity- through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!" - Nietzsche

    Docile: The state of not having enough backbone to stand up for oneself.

    Marriage
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Tricycle: The tricycle is the Anglican Church of personal transport. It's stable enough to mitigate risk, and reliable enough to get you to your intended destination, but only a three-year-old would consider it an exciting ride.

    Carthage: City named after a reference to tissue that is neither muscle nor bone but some strange amalgam of the two, and keeping the two tied together like a man with a ball-and-chain
