    Question Re: Allie

    This is a quote that I suppose a famous person ask. The question was ask in a writer's group that I belong to. None of us knew the answer. Thought one of you would know.

    I think you have it down wrong. It is more likely to be "If [all] writers had one head, I 'ld take a hammer to it".

    If you are asking what is the meaning - then clearly the speaker is suggesting that he/she would destroy all other writers (who have a single head between them all} by striking the head with a hammer and so killing it/them. I suspect it was said as a joke.

    It does help if background and context are given with this kind of sentence.
