There is another couplet that could be added:

Something you lose is effing lost.
Something you loose is effing undone (thinking shoelaces here; I'm up for improvements on this one!)

Oh, this lose/loose confusion is driving me mad. I see it everywhere now that it annoys me. Grrrr.

Thanks Sparklefizz. I was thinking of going to see the film. I don't mind the odd f word but not if its overdone.

Baggs once you warn a person not to look they will be unable resist the temptation to
Effing well look! grin
