    Hi, all!

    A riddle.

    Why cats run?

    BTW, can I ask it without "do"?
    BTW, the answer to the riddle is: stac nur esuaceb yeht t'nac ylf.
    ;)

    Bye, all!

    No.

    It should start with "staC".

    ;)

    You haven't seen them 'on the hunt' (cat game)? 8-)

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Hi, Paul! Recently you wrote in a message to Anton Shepelev:

    No.

    At times, yes.


    Hmm. I suppose one might say:

    Cats run -- why?
    Cats run? Why??


    The simple answer to Alexander's query is "no". That was my initial
    reaction too. When Anton questioned it, you realized there were exceptions but
    couldn't think of any examples offhand &/or waited for somebody to ask. Here's
    my usual slow & wordy response for the advanced students among us, and for Paul
    (who IMHO knows more about this crazy language than he thinks he does).... :-)
