Yes, it could be, if that cliche had not been BANNED!

Apr-20-08  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <keypusher> Sorry, i didn't know there is a list of banned phrases. May i see it, in order not to irritate kibitzers in future?
Apr-20-08  hrvyklly: I think it has been banned in a way similar to that of going into a guitar shop and playing Stairway To Heaven!

It's been banned only in my fantasy. The fact is that cliche will be around long after I am dead and gone. But as long as you're listening, please never describe grabbing a pawn as "greedy," since the concept of greed has no meaning in chess.

Forget greed, what about the passed pawn's "lust" to expand? We can keep that one, can't we?

Deeply offensive to my Victorian sensibilities, of course, but it's just too expressive to give up.
