Dulltown, Europe: Today’s expletive is ‘S’death and fumes!’ A contraction of ‘God’s death and fumes’ – apparently this oath was very popular in England in the seventeenth century.

Some of the letter ‘N’s have been deliberately loosened from this page, please tip all these words into a small bag, give it a good shake, and then tip them out to see if order can spontaneously arise from chaos.
