I am not a hairdresser. Today's Castlebar poll, though, takes my name in vain. Just like Isaac Asimov I really wish I had copyrighted or patented my Thesaurus if only to stop people making fun of me. As I put it in the foreward to the first, or even 1st, edition:
"It is now nearly fifty years since I first projected a system of verbal classification similar to that on which the present work is founded. Conceiving that such a compilation might help to supply my own deficiencies, I had, in the year 1805, completed a classed catalogue of words on a small scale, but on the same principle, and nearly in the same form, as the Thesaurus now published."
Now what I really can't figure out is why those hairdressers have it in for me stealing my name never mind my pseudonyms, antonyms, homonyms, and whatever nymphos you are having yourself?
