In a sexual sense "top" and "bottom" refer to the person in the dominant role and the person in the submissive role, respectively.

Yes. I didn't think too many unicorns were into the sadomasochistic type of behaviour though, but what do I know from unicorns?
It is not strictly a homosexual term.

I may not have been right when saying it even was.

You do get the reference, right? There were no verbs in theoriginal.

I wouldn't bank on him knowing about ol' Archibald Leach. This should help: http://google.com/search?q=old+fine-how-you

Thanks, Zimms. Indeed, I did not know what Evan meant by "the original", when I looked back at Cooper's post and found verbs in it. And I most definitely did not know of Leach before your link. Grassy ass.

You hadn't heard of the telegram, you hadn't heard of "Leach," or you hadn't heard of Cary Grant? I realize he's been gone since you were just a wee little child, but jeez... Cary Grant! (There was a time when I would watch any movie Cary Grant was in, no matter how old or new it was.)

I know what you mean, except that for me it's Audrey Hepburn.

Always watchable. Always worth watching.
And I love the quotes that were attributed to him (including the one under discussion).
The interviewer who said "I think everyone would like to be Cary Grant" to which he replied "Sure they would. I'd* like to be Cary Grant." And the passport official who said "You don't *look like Cary Grant" and he said "Nobody looks like Cary Grant".

Not necessarily. You'll see many people here who stick to single spaces after sentences when using a computer keyboard (as ... accepted these days. (Single spaces were mandatory where I used to work for anything that would be published, even in-house.)

As I understand the rule, it's one space with a proportional font and two spaces with a non-proportional font.
This rule makes no sense to me and I always use two spaces.

I apologize for munging the address but the spam was too much.
I'm sure some people in here will know more of the history of the English lion, but it seems that ... English coat of arms. Allegedly, the Scottish coat of arms had up until that point used two unicorns. http://www.sterlingtimes.org/memorable images14.htm

This seems an appropriate place to mention that in the January 2005 issue of Smithsonian magazine, on page 67, we find:
"Holyroodhouse had been the home of Scotland's kings and queens for two centuries until 1707, when the Act of Union made Scotland part of Great Britain."

That smacks of what I've seen in magazines. I figured they just cheated for space considerations.

All but Grant. The only reason I know of Grant was because the Spice Girls dissed Regis Philbin's voice when they were on his show. They told him he sounded like Yogi Bear (but I think he and/or Kathie Lee misheard it as Yogi Berra), and he said something about how he thought he sounded like Cary Grant.
