|Assunto:||Chamberpot rim, brim or brink?|
Dale, thank you.
<<What kind of a penico are we talking about?
The kind used in the old days and almost always kept under the bed.
<<I'd go with rim or edge.>>
Thank you for expounding on it. So on the rim or edge of a chamberpot stands a mosquito thoroughly unhappy at finding it empty. "Thou brimmeth not over," it ruefully says.
I got that straight now.
