am going to try to migrate my membership of this list over to my yahoo
address so i have 7-day access to it. i should be recognisable !

in the mean time, how about this as a translation exercise. grammar is (
probably ) not a problem, but getting the vocab sorted and making the
translation as idiomatic as possible might be interesting.

i'll ponder it in bac . . . !

RESUME by Dorothy Parker

Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.
