Two childish voices (Stepan Arkadyevitch recognized the voices of Grisha, his youngest boy, and Tanya, his eldest girl) were heard

    And my subject -

    Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired

    What a world...


  5. Oh, and Lizzy!

    (Let me see if I can spell this...)


    That is the Spam from Hell!



  6. Meh to spam in all incarnations.
