You took the easy way out.  I just used to tell the customers that Fort 
Worth Fucked Up.  (My honest language probably lost me two students in 
five years, but the nuns and priests from the Archdiocese of Los 
Angeles weren't among the quitters -- they evolved into proper Xenix 
users and in a few cases programmers who bought Color Computers for 
personal systems).

Poacher is a legal term.  It is just a hunter who doesn't follow the
government's silly rules.  Meat is meat.  There is plenty of room for
all god's little creatures right next to the potatoes and gravy.
