This one makes me giggle every time I read it. I just keep picturing some nerd, fists up, growling at a jock with a fresh black eye. The wordplay, as always, is fantastic. =D

Thanks :w00t: You know, I didn't have a definite image in mind but now I can clearly see yours ^^ Er, I mean the image you've described, not your image... (^^") I'm sure you've never given a jock a black eye. Not that I'm suggesting you're a nerd. (Stop digging, stop digging...)

And thank you for the fave... ^^

Definitely a nerd. Haven't given anyone a black eye, so far. (Not making any promises that it won't happen someday, though =D)

My question is, why don't people know this word? Then again, not everyone reads older literature. This is really nice, by the way.

Thanks! And thank you for the fave!

Well, I think no matter what you read (I do love pottering around the 19th century though), everyone ends up with a slightly different vocabulary ^^ (And one of my commenters (commentators?) is German and another Norwegian ^^ Pretty good excuse...) It's perhaps not surprising that "fisticuffs" has slipped away but it's fascinating which words hang around and which fall out of use. A sibling once pointed out to me that we have "ruthless" but "ruth" is archaic. (Google Chrome has just put a red wiggly line under "ruth", insisting it doesn't exist ^^)
