    The question raised in the first announcement asks about f’s and if there are enough. This reminds me of a story:

    “Feeling footloose, frisky and fancy-free, this feather-brained fellow finagled his father into forking over his fortune. Forthwith, he fled for foreign fields and frittered away his farthings by feasting fabulously with fair-weather friends and fair-haired females.

    Finally, fleeced by those folly filled fellows and facing famine, he found himself a feed flinger in a filthy farmyard. He fain would have filled his frame with foraged food from fodder fragments.

    “Fooey! My father’s flunkies fare far fancier,” the frazzled fugitive fumed feverishly, frankly facing facts.

    Frustrated by failure and filled with foreboding, he fled for his family. Falling at his father’s feet, he floundered forlornly. “Father, I have flunked and fruitlessly forfeited future family favors . . .”

    But the faithful father, forestalling further flinching, frantically flagged his flunkies to fetch forth the finest fatling and fix a feast.

    But the fugitive’s fault finding frater, faithfully farming his father’s fields for free, frowned at this fickle forgiveness of former falderal. His fury flashed, but fussing was futile.

    His foresighted father figured, “Such filial fidelity is fine, but what forbids fervent festivities? The fugitive is found! Unfurl the flags! With fanfare flaring, let fun, frolic and frivolity flow freely, former failures are forgotten and folly forsaken. Forgiveness forms a firm foundation for future fortitude.”
