In the straight dope books, I keep hearing refereneces to the “gry” question. Which makes me wonder… JUST WHAT THE #@^)#^(@ing @(^%*#)^(8 IS THE “GRY” QUESTION?
Erm. Anyway, also, in “The Triumph Of The Straight Dope”, one AOL user named ‘IMSMRTRTNU’ writes in, to which cecil starts his column by replying to it:
URSMRTRNI(you are smarter than I)? DLUR(the hell you are), TRKE.
What’s the TRKE mean? Turkey?
