    It has been alleged that I do not understand the use of poetic devices such as onomatopoeia. Let me assure my adversaries that I most certainly do understand the term. For example, sizzling sausages, bubbling brook, rustling leaves etc etc

    Now to the point at hand, drool or dwool. With the inclusion of the r drool takes on a much more jagged and defined construct whereas substituting the w in dwool we have a construct that is much softer in the palate and thus more evocative of phlegm oozing from the side of someone Internet zombies quivering bottom lip.

    These subtle differences need explanation for while dwool may not be entirely onomatopoetic, its certainly more fitting than drool with its hard edged construct.

    Thank you Professor Drool.

    Your leaves may not always rustle; your brook doesn't always bubble and your sausages seldom sizzle, but when it comes to drool sir, you never let us down.

    My pleasure, I knew I could count on a fellow poet and existentialist philosopher like yourself to understand.

    It might help you if you didn't post like a ten-year-old, taunting others in the schoollyard.

    But as taunting goes it's harmless enough. In contrast to some in the last 24 hours.

    As a matter of interest, what is it you think happened " in the last 24 hours"?
