'O I forbid you, maidens a', That wear gowd on your hair, To come or gae by Carterhaugh, For youngTam Lin is there. 'There's nane that gaes by Carterhaugh, But they leave him a wad. Either their rings or green mantles, Or else their maidenhead.' Janet has kilted her green kirtle A little aboon her knee, And she has braided her yellow hair A little aboon her bree, And she's awa'to Carterhaugh As fast as she can hie.'Tam Lin', opening stanzas.

During the last 100 days we have seen an orgy. It would make any local smorgasbord embarrassed if you looked at this spending orgy we've seen in Washington. So it's no surprise our national debt is now soaring over $11 trillion dollars.  The government spent its wad by April 26. Every dime government spends after April 26 throughout the rest of this fiscal year is borrowed money.michele bachmann: 2009-05-02 rally, quoted in Delaney, Arthur (4 May 2009), "Michele Bachmann: Obama Led Spending "Orgy," Government "Spent Its Wad" (Video)", Huffington Post, retrieved on 2011-05-27
