An old count?

Perhaps "coot?"

Unless this is a royal bank, of course.

Rissa said...

Methinks not "coot".

Just an extra vowel.

An old count? An old count? Oh! Grandpa's hearing isn't quite what it used to be, is it?
Marvelous.

Isaac Yassar said...

I don't get it. Can anyone explain?

Baldowl said...

Isaac, subtract the "O" from count to understand how bad has Grandpa's hearing become.

dadoctah said...

That's "count" pronounced as in "country".

Nick said...

count should be with a capital 'Count'

Isaac Yassar said...

I see. Hmm.. quite tricky! :D

For this one, I nearly went with:

"He does not understand why the doctor wants to give him an anenome."

but decided it might be too obscure...?

You could say "He does not understand why the doctor wants to give him an M and M."

I found this as article of the day on Wikipedia, and it seems "count" is just an historical spelling:
