Dog’s Breakfast

In the beginning, there was the word. For me, it started with this dictionary.

(Actually it probably started with Dr Suesse, but that’s a digression that threatens to lurch into rhyming verse.)

insult - the thing you add to injury...
insult – the thing you add to injury…

So this dictionary, a handsome Oxford volume which I would like to be able to show you in its former, entire, glory, today literally and not proverbially, became the dog’s breakfast.
