    Fun is a noun, dammit!

    It looks as if mrghd may be getting near the end of his project of translating Pimp into Hungarian. We haven't had any new questions for a while now. I've had to resort to The Times crossword, much less fun.

    But I've found a bit of fun in running mrghd's passages through the Advanced Text Analyser, and the results have severely damaged not only my self-respect, but my respect for my colleagues as well. The analyser consistently advises me that Slim's text contains almost no hard words, and those of us who find it difficult to understand are barely literate. Shame on all of us!
