You'll never guess who said this

A lunatic escapes from an asylum, and starts running away. He comes across a riverbank and a few washerwomen, and sli puts with them, and runs off again. The headlines next day:

"Nut Screws Washers And Bolts"

You Know Who :) said...

It's fictional.
Someone would have loved to put it in the news though. It is rumoured to have originated in Australia. I wouldn't be surprised if it were Britain though(of course!).
I wonder if the man was you-know-who, he matches the description - lunatic, screwing and bolting.
If it were 'Nut Eyes Washers and Screws', it would still imply half the story and still would be NEWS(!); and if you remember what Eyes are :)
Not to forget - Springs, Pins etc.

Ok, I'm overdoing it.

Ok, the "you know who" above has convinced me to stop making anonymous posts on random blogs in future... someone might actually want to know who the poster is :-)
-- You don't know who

P.S: Oh, to not be entirely offtopic: ITYM "Loose nut screws washers and bolts". ("Loose nut" is not redundant; he's escaped)

Long live the T to the T to the N.

I can never say 'T' for him. ;-)

Heh. When I installed Sage, I thought I would be saving time because I would no longer keep visiting some sites every few hours like someone with OCD (maybe I should remove the "like"), but instead it has only led to more time-wastage as I add every blog I like to my feed list (currently about a dozen). :-)

(Feel free to delete/trim/edit that comment above (and this one).)
