    ps. Congratulations (and thanks), Ray, on passing the 16,000 mark today.

    I guess it's possible. You obviously missed my correction, since you gave it again in your post, so I guess if you missed it anyone could.
    I'll try to be more specific in future.

    I agree that your limericks took some beating.

    A stupid young doc from Madras,
    His temperature tests couldn’t pass,
    Till his tutor said, “Dear,
    "Stop using the ear!
    "Use either the mouth or the a***.”

    Re: by/from the doctor .

    Before we get too off topic on limericks, I'll just note that, for those who are interested, you'll find some incredibly witty (by me) and reasonable to downright appalling (from Ray and other members) limericks here. Ray and I also give some inspirational tips on composing this particular art form in that thread. I look forward to seeing some of you there.

    I agree now .but I want to know the true usage of the By/From because, when we use the causative verb i.e " have or get " so I want to know which word should I use.
