Welcome.

Boh!

Boh!

There is a story related of the celebrated Ben Jonson, who always dressed very plain; that being introduced to the presence of a nobleman, the peer, struck by his homely appearance and awkward manner, exclaimed, as if in doubt, "you Ben Jonson! why you look as if you could not say Boh to a goose!" "Boh!" replied the wit.

Sick burn, Ben Jonson.
