A who and a what and a where
Were unconscious and all unaware
When a terrible squeak
On the glass from a beak
Woke them up as they were, then and there!

The who groaned and muttered, "Oh why?
Must you bother my sleep, while poor I
Am all tempest tossed
And am all at a loss
To report on the I in my eye!

The what answered "I, sir, be shamed!"
It's the thing that you're being to blame!
Not the who there behind it!
The who sir, is blind! It
Is whatness alone can be named!"

The where sighed and snored in the air.
"You can't be a what from back there!
You will slalom and veer
In confusion, I fear,
If you try to run life from Elsewhere!"

Be wary, Amos. I've cataloged my collection of limerick anthologies, including (but not limited to) the Baring-Gould, Asimov, and Asimov/Ciardi compilations.

Co, co, come up, fair Buttercup!"
I call; and soon her mellow "moo"
Across the flowers she follows up,
And we go homeward through the dew.

So sad to say adieu, Fair buttercup
You are now gone and how I do miss you
I will never forget our last sup
And how you tasted on the BBQ.

Sniff.

And in the flowers she comes up,
For it was a tainted barbecue.

I give up the Presidency and will never run again for anything in my life, including booze and skirts. I was in this bar last night, see, and this guy comes up to me and he says, "Monkey, you want a drink?" and that got me riled up. So I politely told him I wasn't a monkey but a chimp and this joe APOLOGIZED. Yeah! So we knocked some back and I found he was a swell guy and, yeah, we...anyway, I'm off the broads.

Rap, I don't know what they are paying you to impersonate Chongo and spread all this disinformation supposedly in his own name in order to amuse yourself and derail his presidential campaign, but I do predict that it won't be enough to eventually buy your way out of hell for having done it!

It could be Amos, Rap, but I think it's you. Amos, after all, considers himself above this sort of thing, doesn't he? Would he really spare the time and effort to impersonate Chongo? Unlikely. So I think you're the guy doing it.

Have you seen my post about Chongo's victory celebrations at Duffy's Bar?

I'm bettin' you missed it. Well, here it is...

Chongo and his supporters are gathered at Duffy's Bar in Chicago and are already celebrating his projected imminent victory over the Democrats and Republicans. It's quite a scene! Chimps, Bonobos, Gorillas, Baboons, Howlers, Capuchins, Macaques, even the odd Orangutan....and, of course, Chongo's human supporters as well. Every now and then there's a chorus of hooting and screeching that can be heard blocks away. The liquor is flowing freely. This will be THE place to be tonight when Chongo gives his victory speech, thanks all those who contributed to this historic moment, and magnanimously chuckles down his sleeve at his detractors.

It's a damn good thing Duffy's has an outdoor patio and courtyard, cos there ain't nearly enough room in that place to hold this election night crowd. They are hangin' off the chandeliers!

The APP in fact garnered 0.79 % of the vote, a dramatic gain over the 0.53 % they got in the 2008 election. At this rate, Chongo will be elected president by....hmmm...maybe the year 2060?

Amos does sea kayaking, and to win in the 'yaking contests he must harpoon a whale from his kayak, drag it back to the beach, flesh it, butcher it, and render the blubber down into oil. Scoring is done on weight of the whale and time taken for all of the above.

But what, after all, is absolute? Can we ever really know that something is absolute? Justice is not a absolute. Neither is mercy. Can zero, an uncountable thing by definition actually be an absolute? If zero can be absolute, why not one or 3.14159265etc.? Can an absolute number be absolute? What about irrational or imaginary numbers -- are they absolute, or can they ever be such? Can we ever be absolutely certain of anything at all? A famous person recently said that gravity is only a theory, like evolution, and he seemed absolutely sure of that. Can't we all just get along?

Don't pretend to be even dumber than ya are, Rap! "Gravity" is just a word we use, and what we mean by it is this force we gotta deal with that makes things on this planet fall down instead of up or sideways, see? Everybody knows that. We hadda give it a name, so we called it "gravity". That don't mean we know for certain why it works that way, but we do know it does work that way, and that's good enuff fer most people. Now...we got some theories about why it works that way, right? And those theories are stuff that the scientists came up with. They might be interestin', sure, but do most people really care??? No. It's good enough for them just to know THAT gravity works the way it does, regardless of the damn theories. And that goes for most everthing else too. If ya know how somethin' works ya can deal with it just fine. Let somebody else come up with the theory as to why, and he can give himself a big pat on the back for bein' so smart when he does, and then all his followers can pretend they got one up on the rest of humanity, but all they are really doin' is followin' the latest popular trend, that's all. They dump one religion and take up another and figger they've made to "the promised land".

Meanwhile, those of us who know how gravity works...which is EVERYBODY...go on dealin' with it on a practical basis, just like we done before the latest theory came along. Ain't nobody out there, Rap, that don't believe in gravity...although they might not know the word...or the theory.

What I like is her sense of commitment. She is like a bulldog, Rap, she gets hold of a thought or an opinion and she just don't let go no matter what! And she likes shootin' too. If I was not already "taken", and if Sarah Palin was available, I would give it some serious thought, cos it would sure keep things lively, let me tell ya.

I tried to talk her into bein' my runnin' mate at one point, but she was not interested in the number 2 spot...plus I got hell from my own number 1 about it. So I hadda give up on that idea.

ABsolute zero is a temperature at which all molecular motion has cased, defined as -270 on the Kelvin scale of memory serves. But even at that temperature the quantum level fluctuation of zero-point energy continues. For a good layman's recap on ZPF, read "The Field" by Lynn McTaggart. ALthough it is a popularization she does a good job of reciting the issues.

I don't think "cold" has any further meaning when molecular motion ceases. ZPF fluctuations occur even in the apparent vacuum of space. There is some evidence that a perfect "zeroness" is only found in the purest form of awareness, not in any slice of space-time.

Ladies and Gentlemen and gnu.

I have an announcement to make. This is serious.

In a few minutes I'm going to do something I've never done before. Yes, I admit that I shouldn't have let myself get roped into it. It was a slip and I'm paying for it.

The other day I went up to the Legion Hovel and Machine-Gun Sam stopped me. He drew himself up to his full five feet two inches, waved something in front of me, and said, "You a member of the NRA?"

I allowed that no, I was not. He pulled out a GIGANTIC revolver and stuck it under my nose and replied, "Gimme thirty-five dollars for a ticket. I'll buy you a drink."

"I don't HAVE thirty-five dollars, Sam," I said.

"Okay. Here's thirty-five bucks. Now give it to me and I'll give you a ticket," said he.

I took the money and gave it to him. He handed me a ticket.

And I'm off in a few minutes to dinner. It's the annual banquet for the local group of Friends of the NRA.

Forgive me. I was coerced. But it amounts to a free meal.

Put it this way...I would trust Rachel Maddow even more if she was packin', know what I mean?
