I’d like to think that “Russell” referred to Sen. Russ Feingold or to the Russell Senate Office Building.
Then I could just say that this was a bad pun, like the one that has “Crowe Struggling to Russell Up a House in Wales.” (See below.)
Unfortunately, I’ll have to add this to the sloppiness category instead.
The word we were after was rustle.
Too many more of these, and we’ll all be selling wenches and rot iron in the classifieds.
