If you were referring to the bold Cletus as a "mean copperplate handwriting style" then excuse me for I just learned that little piece of functionality and got a bit carried away. As you can see, I learned italics as well.

No, I was referring to the episode where Lisa was gathering signatures for some petition or other, and Cletus signed his name with a copperplate hand -- a late eighteenth, early nineteenth century style of handwriting that was very precise and decorative. Think John Handcock's signature, only neater, with a bunch of excess doodads around it. That's what I meant: you've got to love a yokel who writes like a Victorian gentleman.

As for being offensive, heck, hon, I wasn't offended. I intend to use the word "sudiddlyuck" as often as possible, and I already informed my husband that I will leave him in a New York minute if I ever find the real life version of Groundskeeper Willie. The ugliest man in Glasgow is good enough for me.

Uhura :o)
