comment Is hierarchial a word?
yeah, the most annoying part about the word (whether or not it ever existed in medical terminology) is that it appears to have been removed from government websites probably by some gigantic spell checker in the sky. It was used, and appears to be copied from US Government sources in our source code hundreds of times, but is no longer found on cms.gov.

So, perhaps a medical records program might be more likely to use the spelling "Heirarchial" than something to do with Military or Religious power structures?

I didn't realize this until thinking about your post. The Flying Inn was about holding off a Muslim invasion of England (or at least holding off the indoctrination of healthful Islamic practices at the expense of culture and freedom). Bacon, wine and ale would be prohibited in a Islamic state leaving beans, nuts, and cakes without their natural companions.

I think you're right about most everything, but I know what the real reason for "Bacon" is and the key word is what goes with "unless". If you've read the Flying Inn (or even a brief synopsis) you'll know what I'm getting at. Let me know if you want me to tell you, I kind of guess that you enjoy figuring these things out so I'll just leave it at that.

Excellent answer Mr. Fingers. Actually, I think the most surprising thing about the poem is that it doesn't reference cheese.

@kris I guess. Nevertheless it's good to know. You'd think GKC was talking about beer too after reading "The Flying Inn".

comment Sing Song - nursery poem definitions
For the record, the book is called "Sing Song: A Nursery Rhyme Book" and yeah, half the rhymes seem to be about the death of infants.

comment Sing Song - nursery poem definitions
Wow, that's very interesting (and crazy what they throw in nursery rhymes in the 1800's). I don't think the definitions were important for the kindergarten curriculum, at least I hope they're not. But I can just hear my daughter ask, "if a soldier's cat is not a cat, then what is it?". The book is actually illustrated with a cat with 9 tails, so I had a hankering on that one (not that I knew off hand what a cat-o-nine-tails meant)
