NB that looks daft on its own, but was in response to Farmduck's post about left-handedness among twins, which is now on the previous page.

What's your phone number? I can do you some fantastic deals on your pension. I can arrange for you to retire on ten times your current salary. These deals are absolutely foolproof and your pension will be safeguarded.

In fairness to graveyard johnny, who first mentioned "voice enhancing sweets", I used to enjoy the "voice tablets" we got from Morrisons in Scarborough. Callard & Bowsers? Proper, old-fashioned boiled sweets they were. (still are?)

And in Latin, "sinister" means "left-handed", which is why I posted that.

PS. Also in Latin, "dexter" means "right-handed", hence the word "dexterity" and its derivatives.

But thanks for the Italian reference.
