Croquet's a bit like what you Yankees call golf only the mallets you use carry a lot more authority.

Croquet mallets are all wood.  Golf clubs are a mix of wood and iron.  On the other hand, in Croquet there are times you can knock your opponent's ball off the playing field.  In Golf, you need to wait for your opponent to drive his own ball into the rough.  My opponents don't need to wait very long for that...

Only if you're playing the boring way. Real croquet is played with flamingos.

Lol. Yes, it was.



Also, I feel compelled to point out that "sticky wicket" refers to cricket, not croquet.

Or extra-strong polymer heads, for players of Extreme Croquet.  I first heard about it from Donna Andrews's marvelous Meg Langston mysteries, in this case No Nest For the Wicket.  Each book's title has some sort of play on bird names, and each book also features a new event or hobby or obsession, such as weddings, revolutionary war reenactment, a computer gaming company, a giant yard sale gone out of control, and yes, Extreme Croquet.  She's a great author and every book is a fun read.  :-)

Enough is the enemy of extreme.

More like frienemies.

But enough is as good as a feast.  Mary Poppins said it, and she's practically perfect, so it must be true!

The Ferengi would disagree. As the 97th Rule of Acquisition states, "Enough... is never enough."

And what could be the motivation for distributing Ferengi wisdom without demanding anything in return?
Remember the 59th Rule.  "Free advice is seldom cheap."
