If you are of a “certain age” you will remember the handlebar trade mark, of “professor” Jimmy Edwards, which I understand was grown to cover injuries sustained during WW2

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
