Thread the needle is the first thing you have to do in order to sew on a button. The you put the button in the proper place, stick the needle in one hole, pull it through, then from that side, stick it through the opposite hole and pull through. Do this about 6 to 8 times and you have sewn on a button.

Thanks to the way my mother taught me, I just take a few tiny stitched on the back side and in the same spot rather than fighting to knot the thread when I'm finished.

"Hombre?" you ask, and in return I can only ponder about the kind of evil wench who expects anyone to start a sentence with the word hombre, which is usually tacked on as an interrogative suffix at the end of every third sentence in cheap Westerns.

Westerns are certainly the place to find said wenches I feel, and if anyone can get out of a sticky situation, I will always vote for Gyppo.  ::) ::)

Gyppo, in a survey eight out of of ten owners said their pussies preferred him to any other leading brand.  ;-)

Please, someone else do a reply starting with Gyppo.

Wrong-footing the other players in this game by ending your sentence with a bizarre, obscure, or otherwise unsuitable word is fun, but has absolutely nothing to do with antidisestablishmentarianism.

Antidisestablishmentarianism is such a hard word to use in a limmerick.  :P
