I don't think that word has a meaning beyond referring to the islands. I know because I already tried to find out.

Not that I personally wanted to know.

I believe you freely offered the googling service. Anyway, aren't you a librarian? I thought you would be more enthusiastic about learning new things.

As for me, I realized today that in German we say "three-headed monster" and in the same way say "twelve-headed family" instead of "family of twelve", leaving it dangerously unclear what is meant. You don't know how happy that made me.

*sigh* That sounds like you. If you had your way, I'm pretty sure Germany would be populated by Siamese families with lots of heads, which have worked out a way to run so they can chase tourists while cackling maniacally.

Just because I am forced to google things for GHPs (Generally Helpless People) at work doesn't mean I want to do it in my free time.

If the P in GHPs stands for the plural, do you really need to add the s? Wouldn't it turn into 'Generally Helpless Peoples'? Or would that make it indistinguishable from the singular GHP, like the word sheep? Maybe we should give up on the whole philosophy of the word GHP and just call them sheep. What are your thoughts on the matter?
