[one so old it came off the Ark]

The question is: is there a hyphen in "anal retentive"?

Depends. Now, in smarty-pants, there is always a hyphen.

You mean that you don't spell that solid, Comrade Commissioner Hyllovitch? How very, ah, ancien regime of you, Comrade.  *takes notes, mutters into hidden microphone*

The rules of speeling, like those of good usage, are simple. Here's a free tip!

:doh:

Skdadl, skdadl, skdadl. Whatever are we to do with you?*

One more time, and please to pay close attention:

I'm the splittist, while John_D is the splittite.

Get it? Got it? Good.

Guinevere is good, isn't she? Cathie Martin, eat your heart out.  

And you thought I didn't have to worry about the mic settings.  :wink:

At least I know how to find them now.
