It's in Nebraska

Bear in mind the the rest of the quiz team is made up of three geography graduates. The question was, list the US states whose names contain five letters.

"Hmmm, Idaho, Texas, Maine ....", they said
(So far so good.)
"and Omaha."
(Whoa there! And what!?)
"Omaha's not a state", says I.
"Yes it is!", they insisted.
"It's not."
"Yes it is!"
"Omaha is NOT a fucking state!", I repeated.
"What is it then?", they said smugly.
"It's a city in Nebraska."
(Out came someone's personal organiser which has an atlas in it. Three very red faces.)

The trouble with geographers is that they never admit to anything actually coming into their field of expertise. Ask ten of them what exactly geography is and you'll get ten different, but equally vague and non-committal, answers.

Thanks moonlight, I'll bear that in mind when I next have a stage hand to, err, hand.

If you know any, particularly girlie ones who really go for short round hairy types with attitude and highly developed oral skills, please point them in my direction.

I can well believe that ruby.

I was in love with a historian once. She spoke Anglo-Saxon all the time which I found dead sexy. Clearly I needed to get out more.

To quote the immortal Mr. Dylan, "ah but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now".
