Prison or hoosegow?
Thanks be to Whoever is the Controller of All That Is - I finally get a chance to use 'hoosegow' in a sentence.
I ask, 'prison or hoosegow' which also means 'prison or gaol' -- well?
Jail, gaol, hoosegow is NOT prison. I'm gutted that this distinction has escaped the author of this dreadful tale.
Have you a defense? I thought not. Odds are, no defence either. Haaaaarumph.
