  2. Well, it's all Greek to me too and I didn't even know I knew Greek. I think we were in the same class together. The "All Greek to Me" class. Ha

    1. I can't tell you how many times I've used that lame line.

    1. Well, you know how they separated the men from the boys in Ancient Greece, don't you?
      With a crowbar.
      Forgive me, Lord.

  7. The U and V up there look surprisingly similar and the M/W looks suspect too.
    Good haiku to you, good sir!

    1. I think it's a lot like M & Ms. Which can be W & Ws if you're ornery.

  12. You left out the Romans, for which the penalty is having your leg hairs singed with a hot walnut shell. Is that why you left them out?

    1. It's because they peed on their togas to clean them. That don't seem right.

  13. It's all French to me. Really…

    Great start Al - this post will be a hard act to follow. I feel sorry for B… I mean really, that bowl of soup… come on, how's that to be topped? It can't.

    Are we having fun yet? asked the impatient old bat, as she farted on her cat. (that rhyme is because I've caught the rhyming bug from Mr. Hatt)

    Day One done… can there be anything more fun! (stop me now!) LOL

    1. I wouldn't fart on my cat. And not just because his name is Claude Bahls.

  14. I always learn something here, like that Cyrillic is a language or a part of alphabet soup that's influenced by the Greeks. I bet it's good and somewhat spicy too. Not that bland matzo ball soup liquid stuff my aunties used to make that we had to douse in salt just to give it some flavor. Where can I find some? You forgot to say that A is for Al Penwasser. Alex featured you today. He made a very smart choice. Great kick-off to the challenge, friend.

  18. I think Arabic is the most beautiful alphabet out there :) But Chinese is so fascinating with its intricacies too.

  20. Excellent. I love your brevity. Sorry mine is a bit long today, but I had to dole out the facts of my murder mystery challenge for bloggers to play along for a chance to win a Kindle Fire. I will be back tomorrow. Congrats for being honored on Alex's blog today.
