Well, I was trying to emphasize the 2nd Mouse as it was really the centre of
the whole joke... But it's probably best to leave it off .. Thanks.

Please give me a little break here ;-)
That's why I seperated the Terran from the Hol...It wasn't an exact
translation I couldn't get one..  The Terran was the joke with which I

I became too confused with trying to find something to represent cheese like
"food made from milk".. I then decided to take a different tack.. Afterall
the [Suq Qa'Hom] might not like cheese.. The common denominator of any food
used in a trap is simply (I thought) "trap food" or "food for trapping" or
something like that... Therefore I thought I'd be safe with [Food - Saj] and
use the verb for [trap,entrap - von] adjectively to get [Saj von]... Was
that not ok?
