For any of you who are unfamiliar with the word feign, I will illustrate its use thusly:

As to the grade school teaching of "I before e except after c" I would not deign to feign that I am an expert in spelling, but this is simply not true. That mnemonic shall not reign, nor will the horse he rides upon neigh when he pulls the reins. Do not become feisty with me on this point or plan a heist of my dictionary,but weigh this matter carefully. If you are unable to remember the correct spellings of english words, consider self deporting to Spain, where you will have no such problems.
