I had a witty response involving limnologists, but then I figured I was being too littoral...

When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.

Makes sense, considering the thread was started by a fish.

Obviously, I am not reassuring enough. Will someone, possibly Mel or MDF or AntiM, please explain to grai that there is no vocabulary quiz to get onto the playa, and that I just do the mock thread thing at the drop of a hat.
