I'm dually impressed

Dually noted is guessed at in the first hit as “As we both recognize”. Along with the hits for I’m dually impressed, it might be interpreted as “extra impressed”. The first perp does not include “duly” as a possible spelling, which is telling.

Dually noted. Or is it Dewly noted? Duelly? I don’t know what that phrase means really. Does it mean “we both note it”, as in dually noted?

Re: I'm dually impressed

Do you write your own Tom Swifties, Tocayo? I agree, a very good one.
