Wouldn't even be sure of that, given Smithy's recent state. Scanlon knows what an A major looks like. And Karl Burns knows what John Major looks like. That's why he's back in the band.

Smith might undrestand better if it were referred to as a "Trope-uh."

And did you know that the adjective meaning "of or pertaining to a trope" is "tropical"?

Onward, useless,
