At Son of Groucho’s excellent suggestion, I ran Shooting Parrots through the Internet Anagram Server (the “Great Art“) and came up with “a strongish troop,” “rot a spoon’s girth” and “a pro’s thong riots.” But the most accurate? “So, a night’s torpor.” Nightie, night then.
Meanwhile, I hate Groucho for this bit of Cherie Blair’s foot-in-mouthedness (how could she not miss such an open goal?) from the Sunday Times which was mine, all mine. So I settled for this cartoon instead.
