Is this bait to smoke out lurking misogynists?

NOT ME! Every time a woman has ripped out my heart, run it through a potato peeler, burned it to ashes, scattered the ashes in the compost heap, and laughed manically as I have let loose with the shriek of the flayed-alive, I have had nothing but warm thoughts.

This is The Nagual speaking:

Scully, I get the impression there is some bit of cleverness I am missing here. Like a sudoku or something..... I'm stuck on the wo prefix....

Ah wait , now I see it. It's all about the comma and the colon. Yes....yes...it's all about the colon. (see what I did there?)

Poor Roger poured out his sadness a bit prematurely.....

Anyway, poor roger put me in the mind of Poor Richard who was benjamin Franklin and that reminded me of the pbs show about Audubon that I saw last night. See it? He reminded me of Teddy Roosevelt.

That is all.
