I just used the nearly 1,200 year old word "ilk" in a post just now. Curious, I searched and found it has been used in VO-BB member posts 27 times in our first 18 years. They just don't craft those words like they used to.

Oh, and this post makes it 28 uses of the work "ilk".

Ooops, that makes it 29.

Stop me before I "ilk" again!

Ahhhh, that's 30!

Now you're just ilking it for all it's worth.

Your post reminded me about one of my favorite poets, Ogden Nash.

Here is his poem, The Cow

The cow is of the bovine ilk,
One end is moo, the other milk.

I have another theory; my theory #2, which is the second theory that I have. Ahem...
