GUEST,Dita (at work) Help: the tirlie-wirlies did what? (9) RE: Help: the tirlie-wirlies did what? 03 Mar 01

Ah yes, Ewan at his most helpfull. Why give a simple explanation when you can provide something even more obscure and pass it off as clarfication?

Tirlie-whirlie is an ornament or nick-nack.

Whirligig is a complicated ornament, design or diagram.
(Perhaps it could be used for a (unhelpful)complicated footnote, as in "That was a whiligig o' a footnote Ewan wrote for that song."
love john.
