Do you know that some mornings he has to get his hat on with a shoehorn.
He cant find a shoehorn with which to get into his breeches.
Even if he had any flavor and wasn't tougher'n a shoehorn, he's too much for us to eat.
To dig up de profundis a shoehorn that you need is a more remarkable achievement than to unearth a new Pompeii.
He certainly has arrived at what a witty American friend of mine would call the "Shoehorn stage."
He had a shaven cranium, and his tight scalp might have been slipped over the bony bosses of his head with a shoehorn.
