On A Guide to Victorian Slang

Well, I've just now learned that I've been spelling "argol bargol" wrong this whole time. And that I am going to bring "nonsensational" back. Sensational nonsense, if ever that word was needed it was now.

@SockHopBop My mom has infinite sets of salt and pepper shakers (joey pepper inside mama kangaroo salt; salt and pepper robin's eggs in a nest, etc. etc.) You can start a collection, it'll be great.
