You heard it here first, folks. This is the "cockles" thread. Dedicated
to imaginative interpretations, promulgation, dissemination,
elucidation, mythology, history and general enjoyment of cockles and
cockles-lovers everywhere.

Though the temptation is strong to begin with a well-worn, time-honored
cockle of the past (like, "why did the cockle cross the road?") or a
Webstergated cliche (cockle, n., deep hidden place, repast, garret),
on behalf of Rose, this thread simply solicits your cockle-droppings of
whatever shade or persuasion wherever they might fall.
