    From the Amer. Herit. Dict. of the Eng. Lang. 4th Ed. (you’ll have to supply the bold and italics yourself):
    Usage Note: Historically, flammable and inflammable mean the same thing. However, the presence of the prefix in- has misled many people into assuming that inflammable means “not flammable” or “noncombustible.” The prefix -in in inflammable is not, however, the Latin negative prefix -in, which is related to the English -un and appears in such words as indecent and inglorious. Rather, this -in is an intensive prefix derived from the Latin preposition in. This prefix also appears in the word enflame. But many people are not aware of this derivation, and for clarity’s sake it is advisable to use only flammable to give warnings.

    Good joke. I’ll have to try it on my various doctors. (Actually they have to ask under federal regulations intended to stop fraud.)

    The one-L lama is a priest.
    The two-L llama is a beast.
    But I’ll bet my top pajama
    That there is no 3-L lllama.

    And all these decades I thought Cracker Jack was plural.

    Not a trademark violation, I suppose, on grounds of fair use in parody.

    It’s not over til it’s over, but yet, somehow it already seems over.

    A German-speaking Swiss once told me how angry he was that the Swiss selected standard German as one of their official languages and not their Schwyzerd├╝tsch dialect(s). So even having an army isn’t necessarily enough. (If there is any Swiss navy bobbing around their lakes, it is no threat to world peace.)
