There were loads in our street when i was a lad and plenty in my class at school.
But I've not come across any for ages

Apparently they still lead the way. Maybe they've just disappeared from my world.

Some are of the opinion that the piece of music we know as Für Elise, is really Für Theresa. Apparently, Beethoven's handwriting is very difficult to decipher.

I was haunted by visions of yellow teeth
But back on track and so's Jo Anne

Priscus: Beethoven's handwriting is very difficult to decipher. (Wiki)

That sounds like I-Spy's cryptic threads.

If there are more Smith's than anybody else why do we have to keep up with the Joneses

There were lots of them, but some were left-handed ones and some were right-handed ones.
So I suppose if you combined the left-handed ones with the right-handed ones, there were lots of them.
But rumour has it that someone has a universal one, can be either left or right handed.
