Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) is a widely-cultivated creeping vine plant in the Cucurbitaceae gourd family that bears cucumiform fruits, which are used as vegetables.

Well, you learn something new every day. I always thought Cucumber was a veg.

Woops - Wiggo did a double post a few hours ago, so standby for a round of drinks on his tab....

Yet another reminder - hyphenated words. They are much rarer than some folks believe, so be VERY careful when using them, indeed it is far better in the game to just use one part and let others move on rather than forcing people into your chosen path.

And it is TWO words - look there's a space between the "Mr" and the "ty-d-bol".

[edit to add]
Be very careful when posting posting trademarks (which is the US version of trade marks) to use the correct spacing & spelling whilst remembering that there are only two punctuation marks allowed
The apostrophe as in d'ddario (my favourite acoustic guitar strings)
and
The hyphen (as in the trade mark "ty-d-bol").

...and don't forget that the apostrophe "s" at the end of a word is a possessive not a plural.
e.g. Joe's means something like "Joe has something" or "Joe is something"

I know. I wanted to do the full trademark for “Harley Davidson”. The two words above were “Live Wire”. All three are google references to the all electric “Harley Davidson Live Wire” motorcycle. :-)

Ah, but just googling the words wire & harley brings up a headset manufacture as well as the expected harley davidson - that's the way the game twists and turns
