Hey, hold on!! Just because I have had one two too many irony tablets, doesn't mean it ain't BS!! Besides, it got LH to reveal his condescending snarky side. How cool is that??

Ah! It is good to see Amos showing a little humility and self-criticism. This means we will not have to give him a good slapping at the next sissy boy slap party. Ed, that was probably the most bizarre short film I have seen yet. In fact, I may now be able to say that "I've seen everything".

I didn't see Shane anywhere among the participants. He would be horrified and disgusted by that film. He has a deep hatred for that sort of sissy boy stuff. He calls such people "winky-twisters" and/or "corkpullers".

Every now and then, we need a reminder that this is The Mother of All BS Threads, not just The Mother of All Threads.

The last few posts have provided such a reminder.

No, not at all. As with all things MOAB (including applause for chansons de geste) it is merely an option. The trick is in who chooses which options.

SOmetimes we make the wrong choices. I for example, have repeatedly chosen to lampoon the various eccentricities of Rapaire and Little Hawk in these pages. This, I think, was morally an error. I need to learn the True Power Of Forgiving Everything.

It gives a great frisson, Ed, to see you use so rare an expression as "chanson de geste" in a MOAB thread. I have always maintained you added class to this joint, and Gawd knows after the moral terpitude being condoned by LH and Raspaire around here, we can use it.

Ed:

It is bizarre enough to fit into LH's repertory of overheated imaginings. Why are you even looking at it? Is there something you need to be telling us, now?

Rapaire's list has inspired me so I am going to take a day off work and try each of these techniques.

After Mr. and Mrs. Fenton retired, Mrs. Fenton insisted her husband accompany her on her trips to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, Mr. Fenton was like most men -- he found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunately, Mrs. Fenton was like most women -- she loved to browse. One day Mrs. Fenton received the following letter from her local Wal-Mart.

Dear Mrs. Fenton,


Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and may be forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against Mr. Fenton are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras:

June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's carts when they weren't looking.

July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in House wares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.

July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, "Code 3 in House wares - get on it right away."

August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&M's on layaway.

September 14: Moved a "CAUTION - WET FLOOR" sign to a carpeted area.

September 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told other shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department.

September 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"

October 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

November 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

December 6: In the auto department, he practiced his "Madonna look" by using different sizes of funnels.

December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled "PICK ME! PICK ME!"

December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed "OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!"

December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, and then yelled very loudly, "Hey! There's no toilet paper in here!"

Regards,

Harvey W. Pringlegast
Attorney at Law

"Amos" (sometimes written as "ah'mos") is an approximate phonetic representation of how the English word "almost" is pronounced in Floribama.

Example: I wuz ah'mos heffway 'tween Munson an' Baker when I hit a deer an' it fuktup mah ret front tar.

A MOS in this context stands for Master of Style although occasionally it stands for Maker of Songs or MOAB's Oldest Son depending on who you listen to. It has NOTHING to do with metallic oxide semiconductors.

He posts like a sea desiring poet....but, what actually is a mos, the magic poster, who contrived by the sea?

Could he represent the common man on the street or represent a long channel ? Could he signify Latin customs or a curious gaseous envelope of air (as in at mos phere)?

I think me not, Mister Man..

Could the seret lie here in web land?

One does not "stoop" to plagarism. One rises up to it, at the same time raising the value and status of that which was plagarised.

Lo, how the BS loud does rage,
Among the sleepy threads,
And draws the readers of the page
To shake their sleepy heads
How turley roond the tome doth grow,
How glissone goes its measure,
As on and up she boldly goes,
Where no man knows the pressure.
How stringly fired is her ween!
How glimly doon, her tripple!
Beneath the glumringed stars between,
A dampling, struttering stipple!
No lass in herbs can make her less
Nor lissome manny slattern,
For she has all our strove behest
And heaven's gandering pattern.
So come forth Une, Deus, Tray
And plaster thrice the wooly slab
For thou hast cantilevered Day
On the brow of proud MOAB!

The pumpers got over their various ills,
And the company welcomed them back.
Their sins full shriven, and themselves forgiven
For risking us all with their yack.
And the bilge held firm with the parcel and worm
And caulking to Big Ed's lay,
And the ship leapt east with a bone in her teeth
At the break of the rising day.

And the sunrise brought the balm
Of a warming day as the next of Kay
Loomed out ihrough the fading storm.
Off the bow she lay, thirty three of Kay!
In a golden, beckoning mist!
And the skipper swore 'twas as fair a sight
As ever he'd fondled or kissed.

On the broad reach through the bay,
And we marked our plot, and talked of what
