Soemthing like that -- but he .sigged a "pronunciation" something
like Bo^ret Trolley, which I think is what Bill was picking up on.
He (and responses to his schtick) predominated in for

-- and the result was even more bizarre than our Velikovskyite
infestations (but vastly more amusing than the current deluge of
alt.nonsense cross-postings.)
