Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

New evidence has cast doubt on reader John Kozak's claim that he had managed to make an ICL One-Per-Desk say: "My secretary is giving me head in the wastepaper basket."

Tyrone Cartwright points out that "give", "giving", "wastepaper", or "basket" do not appear in the word list, calling into question Kozak's claim. However, Cartwright suggests that it's possible other OPDs or Tontos were released with a different word list, or that Kozak is remembering a similar but differently-worded phrase.

Cartwright has thoughtfully sent us a screenshot of the complete vocabulary taken shortly before his own OPD gave up the ghost.

Using your skill and judgement, create the rudest phrase you can and you could be the lucky owner of a Register T-shirt!
