    wow, oldhand, that's great one.
    For a moment, I thought it strange that you may be anti-French.Amazing how when English words are reversed,mostly they come out so French.
    btw, have you sent this to BWF,esp Datuk Punch? One of them may get a heart attack; the ones who are spared may work overtime today.
    Enjoyed your great sense of fun.

    Knowing it's April Fool's Day today, we were expecting someone to make us fools.

    Oldhand, you have succeeded to fool some of us. :D:D:D

    i don't see why everyone is complaining.
    chess is so much more physically demanding than badminton.
    and croquet, well, enough said ...
