    And don't forget the semi-archaic meaning of "hung" - as in hung over (see Mame starring Rosalind Russell for an example).

    Congratulations! I wish I could see them in person, but even the web site photo conveys the luminance and your impeccable presentation.

    Most likely.

    When most people use the word hung, they really mean hanged.

    No. Hanged is the correct past tense.

    I agree with Steve.

    Meat is hung, people are hanged!
    Cheers,

    I hope you're trying to be witty, otherwise this comes across as sanctimonious claptrap. And who is the royal "we"...?
