Man that is nice! Happy birthday Jake.

BTW- and this is a serious question, is Dudgeon a Scots word, or is it simply a typo that should have been Dungeon?

Dudgeon is an English word, though possibly from a Scots or Welsh root, for box wood root, which in the medieval period was the only native wood which it was legal to stain black to mimic ebony. The word became synonymous with this style of dagger. In Scots we still say that someone is 'up to high dudgeon', meaning in a killing mood, which comes from the dagger form.
