    Clamp or cramp ? Is there a difference ? The same product is called either a clamp or clamp! The same goes for duvets and quilts.

    It's just different names for the same things.
    Some call them clamps while others call them cramps.
    If you are looking on a website remember to put cramps & clamps in the search engine.
    I just tried 'clamps cramps' in the screwfix search engine & was given carpenters tools as the result.

    Mmmmmmmmmmm is just what the doctor says when he gets the test results in & wonders what your other half will say when she has to be checked out too.

    Bizaarly, I do believe a cramp is used by a carpenter and a clamp is used by an engineer (cramp comes from cramp-iron), not to sure though. A duvet is a quilt in an envelope and a quilt is just a quilt.

    Woodlouse is singular to that of woodlice


    All bizaar

    There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple
    nor pine in pineapple.
    English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France.
    Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.
    We find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a
    guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
    And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't
    groce and hammers don't ham?
    If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth?
    One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices?
    Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend.
    If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them,
    what do you call it?
    If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?
    If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

    In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?
    Ship by truck and send cargo by ship?
    Have noses that run and feet that smell?
    How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and
    a wise guy are opposites?
    Your house can burn up as it burns down, you fill in a form by filling
    it out and an alarm goes off by going on.
    When the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out,
    they are invisible.

    PS. - Why doesn't "Buick" rhyme with "quick"
    Why do we say something is out of whack? What's a whack?
    and one they missed.....
    Why do we drive on a PARKWAY, and park in a DRIVEWAY?

    I think this is a classic case of thread drift. It takes real skill to move from cramps to jogger's nipple!
    Have a good Saturday, try to avoid going shopping with SWMBO.
