I was browsing around one of the other prepper sites on the net, when I happened upon a thread at one site, devoted to sling-bows and all the way through the thread, contributors were enthusiastically extolling the virtues and vices of whisker biscuits. I hadn’t come across that term before, so to speak, at any of the other of the archery and hunting web-sites that I had looked at, and was quite confounded as to what it referred to. Curiosity got the better of me and so I decided to consult my friend Google. I saw a link to a website that referred to whisker biscuits galore, and as soon as I clicked the link, I was whisked away to a site, that was, what can I say,…. rather gratuitously explicit. In the few, well truth to tell it was just a few more than a few nano-seconds that it took for me to register what whisker biscuits were, [and there was nary a whisker to be seen at all!! : O ] I left the site, somewhat shocked. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comI eventually found what I was looking for, and the penny finally dropped as to why that name was used for that particular archery device. http://www.strictlybowhunting.com/index.php?name=Reviews&req=showcontent&id=32 Lordy, there’s a lot that I need to learn about American idioms.
