When I was at the University, a few years ago (well OK quite a few but never mind) I did a course in technical writing. One of the main points of one lesson was being very careful when using common expressions as you would throw a curve ball at someone who knew not what a curve ball was. I feel this was such a moment.

For those still in the 1950s and refusing to watch any US based media a curve-ball is a baseball term for a ball thrown with spin which curves in the air and so confuses the person trying to hit it. Its became US slang for something which confuses, especially something new that looks straightforward but causes complete failure. In recent years its become much more commonly used so its not just those funny Americans who know it, but still the point is good.

Master of Your Domain is, obviously, not so well known - which killed the Joke Sigh | :sigh: Not all lost though I laughed at it Laugh | :laugh:
