Very good, Kevin

I would have liked to add to your witty list if I could, but it's midnight here and my brain is switching off now, as is my laptop, ...so I've got a good excuse.

I think it was Borges who told this joke:

Q: What do you say when you meet a puma in the jungle?
A: "Jaguar you?"

"Jaguar" made today's New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle - 15 down. This is becoming the Week of the Jaguar.

Christopher Robin used to pronounce it "Jagular," apparently.

"cougah" and "jagwah" up in my neck of the woods. Terminal r's are not our strong suit, but the h is not silent. Rhymes with "yogah"
