Of all the animals of prey, man is the only sociable one.
Every one of us preys upon his neighbour, and yet we herd together.

Word of the Week

A delightful accidental neologism, courtesy of one of the Elders of Clan Macheath:

Titify (v.), to get ready for an evening out; a portmanteau of 'beautify' and 'titivate'

as in "Your mother will be down in a minute; she's just titifying herself."


Update: I have just noticed that this marks the 500th post at Newgate News; perhaps I should have done a more serious and substantial piece to mark the occasion!

  1. Maybe you should have titified it up a bit :-)
