quote by Eoin Colfer

Let's save some time here. I grow weary of your clumsy bluffs. In the case of an abduction, the LEP will send a crack Retrieval team to get back what has been lost.. You have done so. Excuse me while I titter. Crack team? Honestly. A Cub-Scout patrol armed with water pistols could have defeated them.

The choir always tittered and whispered all through the service.

There was once a church choir that was not ill-bred, but I have forgotten where it was.

Dance, v.i. To leap about to the sound of tittering music, preferably with arms about your neighbor's wife or daughter.
