However contrary to established norms, the judicious placing of the comma twixt,.'the' and 'Hoo...n', affords an opportunity to pause and reflect, to those unsure as to whether or not they wish to proceed further into, 'Hoolakamoocha Man', and/or take a deep breath before doing so. As being a member of the COPD Brigade, I frequently do myself.

Sadly, none of the above detracts from the veracity of the accusation you level against me of being 'a comma abuser'.

Being enrolled at infancy, in, L'Académie pour les Récidivistes Récalcitrants, and graduating in my late teens (barely able to tie my shoelace or shoelaces, depending on whether or not I had one or two), I moved from adolescence to young adulthood, thence to maturity, woefully ill-equipped for life in general, and for the mastering of the proper and appropriate usage of the Brit/ English Language in particular. I am, and have been for many years now, a fully paid up member of, 'Comma Abusers Anonymous'. It would appear I need to seek counselling for my hyphen abuse.

However, '70s-style...still seems a bit iffy to me.

As for the music: whatever turns you on. I never said otherwise.

Vic-k, you sure do got a purty mouth. I'm glad you appreciated my son's/nephew's mean banjo playing. He makes us all proud around these parts. Now I don't know how you fancy city boys use your hyphens, but around here we use them when we want to, and it just so happened in this case I wanted to get away with using more than three words, like the previous posters.

Sin...my little inbred buddy, since when did you need a precedent set by others (what/whosoever it/they may be (or even one of your own)), before doing your own thing. :wink:

Just popped over here from watching, 'Horizon', on BBC iPlayer. The program is about the giant telescopes in the Chilean Atacama Desert, and the search for a massive black hole at the heart of our Milky Way Galaxy. Of course, with the kit they have at their disposal, they found it with hardly any bother at all.
I'm not going to tell them that they need have looked no further than our little three worder and Wock's post.
