It is the more entrepreneurial spirit of the usage I was after.

4 points for Fbone.
As for a) the form of wolves, hence werewolf, is a common apparition for the delusion.
Excellent my dear seagull.

I watched the HBO series Boardwalk last night and they had scene that featured the "A man, a plan, a canal, panama." After reading the palindrome quiz here, it was hilarious.

Quote:
Wilson: "A man, a plan, a canal, panama."

Sheriff: "What?"

Wilson: "It's a palindrome."

Sheriff: "A what?"

Nucky: [With irritation dripping from his voice] "A palindrome is a word or a phrase spelled the same backwards and forwards, like racecar. Now can we get back to work? I have a headache."

Wilson: "Or Mom."

Nucky: "Or imbecile."

Wilson: [Thinks for a moment.] "Uh... wait."

Nucky: [Stares at Wilson with a look that says, 'I'm going to shoot you in the face.']

Sheriff: "A man, a plan... wait, how's it go?"

Wilson: [Looks at the Sheriff. Looks at Nucky.] "Uhm... I'll tell you later."

Three brothers share a family sport:
A non-stop marathon
The oldest one is fat and short
And trudges slowly on
The middle brother's tall and slim
And keeps a steady pace
The youngest runs just like the wind,
A-speeding through the race
"He's young in years, we let him run,"
The other brothers say
"'Cause though he's surely number one,
He's second, in a way."

Who/What are they?

The hands on a clock. The old one is the hour hand, the middle one is the minute hand and the young one is the 'second' hand.

Nice question, Fbone!

Here's a trivial one: there's a link between the current BBC production of "Sherlock" and the US television series "All In the Family". What's the link I'm thinking of?

"All in the Family" was inspired by a British TV series, and "Sherlock" has also inspired the U.S. TV series "Elementary"?

Yes, that's part of the answer.

While true, it's not part of the link I'm thinking of.
