    Your posts on this thread should avoid "ands" or "buts" as well as not using articles [a, an, the]. Any topic is OK. Topic drift is OK. Dodging along with deflection are OK. Thread hijacking is OK... anything, as long these syntactical restrictions are observed.

    Because I said "bagsy no returns" when I posted this thread's OP. 😏

    Even HandyAndy's name, in and of itself, could be said to contravene our thread challenge's spirit. 😛

    In fact it seems like doing this is less difficult in English than it would be in German.

    Way too complicated for me; so, for that reason, I'm out.

    {a,an,the,and,but}

    Seems like few posts have followed OP's instructions. Isn't OP entitled to make thread rules? Still, it is General Forum, so why would I expect this thread to be any different? 🙂
