I resent that remark. My fountain pen is filled with green ink right now,
and when it isn't, it has purple ink in it. And I am not a conspiracy nut.
So there.
Seriously, I have only come across the green ink=nutter thing since I came
to the UK. Is it an international thing, or just in English speaking
countries, or just UK?
Or has it got a literary origin? Does anyone know?
