    Mary had a little lamb
    It was a little bugger
    It climbed upon the table once
    And did one in the sugar

    Mary had a little lamb
    She tied it to a pylon
    A thousand volts went up it's bum
    And turned it's wool to nylon

    Mary had a little lamb

    But what she wanted was a horse

    So she took it down the butcher's shop

    and ate it with mint sauce

    (I should have been a poet!)

    its fleece was black as charcoal,

    it stuck its head between its legs

    and whistled up its ............... er, what rhymes with charcoal ?

    There once was a girl

    who had a little curl

    right in the middle of her forehead.

    When she was good

    she was very, very good,

    but when she was bad

    she was horrid!

    Magnum: I'm fascinated with language - the mechanics of it, the psychology of it, etc.

    I've been reading Steven Pinker's latest work: The Sense of Style. He sheds a lot of very clear light on how language works as well as how it doesn't through common mistakes in construction of sentences, paragraphs and longer forms.

    He also bashes a lot of grammar myths concerning what is "right" and what is "wrong."

    As it turns out, a lot of well-entrenched grammar rules are just wrong. If it makes sense it's good. A lot of what is left is simply a matter of style, particularly formal versus informal.

    For those that don't know, Steven Pinker is a Johnstone Family Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. He conducts research on language and cognition

    Let's play with Mary and her lamb

    with words that rhyme like toast and jam

    and yes the fleece is white as snow

    and where is Edgar Allan Poe

    a ravens crying in the night

    cause Mary's lamb is not in sight
