'Scuse me, I'm still wheezing...tears running down my face because I laughed too hard...all your fault, Becky!
An apenstaartje is one of those symbols in the code you had better get right but it's one that doesn't have a real name in English. Dutch was much more productive and the Dutch have a history of doing impossible things with a mouse finger, sticking it in a dike to stop a flood, for instance, so using their word seemed logical. After all, flood...explosion...what's the difference?
Now you're thinking about becoming a hot toady and risking all to investigate this game for us. A hot toady with a mouse finger. You are an unusual, indeed a unique person, boss. I cannot wait for your further adventures on The Path.
