Hey Linda Perle, don't fink out on me now. Denying our mutual ancestor.
Shame. Weren't you the one who complain'd that our ancestors wouldn't be
too happy with us? :>(

And what about our granny the Bride of Lammermoor??? If that doesn't win
ME (since yer in a state of denial) the contest, I don't know who CAN win
it. With a heritage like that, it's a wonder we (I?) ever had a date!

Bring on the judge. What's my prize????????????????????????????

And if there's any doubts, I got plenty of Campbell grandpappies too!
