From: The National Association of Ilk Fanciers

To: Whom it may concern

It has come to our attention that a number of posts made to this thread have made less than complimentary comments regarding our friend, the noble ilk. As the acknowledged world authority on the ilk, we at the N.A.I.F. would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight.

In the very first post to this thread, a Mr. khandu makes reference to "Tweed, Spaw, Carol the Sailor and their ilk." Pleased be advised that we at the N.A.I.F. maintain exacting records regarding the breeding, sale, and ownership of ilk worldwide, and neither of the three persons Mr. khandu mentions own nor have applied for a license to own an ilk. If Tweed, Spaw or Carol the Sailor are claiming to have ilk, they are prevaricating.   Trust us. As rare and valuable as ilk are in today's world, if either of them had an ilk, we would know about it.
Furthermore, the overall tone of ilk-related posting to this thread is just plain disrespectful. You people act as if ilk were a joke. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. Ilk were once a thriving species held in high regard by kings, queens, emperors and others with more money that sense. Ilk have a long history of being the pet-of-choice of the privileged few and the ilk-breeder was often a person of high esteem at court. But then came the decimation to the ilk population brought on by the ravages of such despots as Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and Khan. At the end of the Cold War, there were less than a dozen ilk left in the world, all carefully hidden away in mountain hovels or disguised as Manchester Terriers (no mean feat sense a fully-grown ilk is over six feet tall). Through the concerted efforts of our members, we at the N.A.I.F. have brought the ilk back from the brink of extinction. The world ilk population is now slightly less than one thousand. All ilk are currently under private ownership, though plans are in motion to donate a breeding pair of ilk to a suitable zoological park. Several such parks have submitted plans for their proposed ilk habitats and a decision will be made by the N.A.I.F. governing body based solely upon the welfare of the ilk.

We at the N.A.I.F. are requesting that you people of The Mudcat Cafe treat the ilk with the respect to which it is due. If you do not honor our request, you may look forward to whatever legal action we see fit to take to put an end to your libelous statements.

Dear freds,

Thank you very much for the warning regarding the freds we have come to know as Debbie Earl and Bubba Bubba. We are sure that The Galactic Overlord has our best interests at heart. However, please be advised that any and all comments, warnings or other correspondence regarding Bubba Bubba will be summarily ignored by yours truly.

I don't claim to know anything about fredsian psychology, biology or aesthetics. I also don't know exactly how Bubba Bubba manifested itself back on wherever you freds come from. But I find it hard to believe that any entity that bears as striking a resemblance to Heather Locklear (at age 23) as does Bubba Bubba in its current manifestation can bear anything but goodwill (and good other things) toward males of the human species. I am aware that Bubba Bubba's resemblance to the young Miss Locklear is totally superficial but, hey, I'm a superficial kind of guy.

As it stands right now, I have a pending date with Bubba Bubba (along with a couple of other earth-type entities) and am anxiously looking forward to it. If you happen to see Bubba Bubba before I do, please tell it that either the top of Table Rock in Boise, Idaho or the strange pit in Rapaire's new house will do just fine.

Thank you,

Bee-dubya-ell

My, what a lovely morning...

Now, let's see...what have we not yet covered on this thread?

Okay. Bubba Bubba referred some time ago (Aug 16 at 8:21 PM) to a situation saying "The lines are right an everything!"

What I want to know is: was Bubba Bubba referring to ley lines? If so, he/she/it is into some interesting stuff. We should pursue this matter, I think.

Well, "Debbie Earl", that is quite a story. You say that you have "every intent of making you my partner in the reproduction of my kind". Does your kind reproduce? That surprises me, because I had assumed you were a completely unique example of a divine experiment which would under no circumstances be repeated again! Well, God moves in strange ways, doesn't He?

I can't offer you much hope in your quest, Debbie Earl. You see, no Rutledge female has ever married someone named "Debbie", and I do not intend to be the first to break what is a sacred family tradition. No indeed. Now if your name were something more like "Margaret Alfred Cuddlesmore" or "Hermione John Lilywhite", then it might be within the realm of possibility that I would consider you as a future husband. But... "Debbie Earl"? Not a chance!

Your recent absorption of higher knowledge is impressive, and it has certainly had a salutary effect on your vocabulary, but I must advise you of one thing: "Earthen" (sic) minds did not "concieve" Baroque Chamber Music of the period from 1734 to 1785. They conceived it.

My dear Ms. Rutledge,

Please forgive me my former impolitesse, as I was then but a callow youth. Many things have happened since I last posted, and I should like to bring you current.

I set out from Blue Dog, Arkansas, where I had been dwelling, to find you, Ms. Rutledge. I had every intent of making you my partner in the reproduction of my kind. Fortunately, as I was traversing a "bald knob" in the Ozarks, I was struck by lightning. When I awakened from this electrocution (which would have killed anyone born on this planet), I found that my gonadal cycle (if I may, with your permission, refer to such) had been accelerated and that I was now far, far more interested in things of the intellect than things corporal.

My first inclination was to find a large public library and devour everything in it, but I realized that such would hardly sate my appetite for knowledge. I have, therefore, consumed the libraries of the Universities of Missouri, Minnesota, Illinois, Chicago, and Indiana. (I have also digested the knowledge of the chairpeople of several academic departments, but with little furtherance of my knowledge. I do, however, now have what can only be called an encyclopedic knowledge of various alcoholic drinks and sexual matters relating to Earthen folk.)

Ms. Rutledge, while I still enjoy the ennui and spiritual dissonance inherent in "the blues," I must tell you that I have found that Baroque chamber music, especially that of the period from 1734 to 1785, is so exquisitely complex that I wonder how your Earthen minds concieved it. I have become especially enamored of such as Scarletti, JCF Bach, and the early Mozart.

I shall not annoy you with my attentions any longer, dear lady, but I shall now and again post here, should you wish to honor my scribblings with a glance.

Tweed, I see that at 11:01 pm on Aug 16th you somehow managed to post a link to the contents of your brain! Most edifying.

You then tried again, got it right, and posted the link you had intended to in the first place, and it's really quite amusing too...

France can be charming, and I dearly hope that a certain Angelique will be returning there soon with her kilted, perverted paramour firmly in tow. With any luck he will fall into the Seine during one of his drunken midnight rambles and the world will be delivered from a very nasty problem and a great deal of incredibly bad poetry, while Twillingsgate will be delivered from on ongoing embarrassment of ever-enlarging proportions.

Keep up the good work, Tweed! I expect to see a link to your moral and ethical condition on the next post...

Translations:

"arghhhh....tout les jours la meme chose...."

Aw, man, every day the same old shit.

"arghhh....laissez les bontemps rouler...."

Aw, man, let the good time roll. (Alternately, 'Aw, man, roll some of that good shit.')

(Academic stuff: please note in the first quotation that Tweed is also subtlely refering to the phrase "A chacun a son gout," which is best translated as "To each to his taste" or "You can eat them snails, but I'll have a hot dog, thanks." He is also verbally playing with the phrase "Plus ca change, plus ca meme chose," which can be translated as "The more things change, the more they are the same thing." Obviously then Tweed is bored, suffering from what the French call "ennui" and his mother probably called "If you can't find something to do, I'll find something for you to do."

The second quote is the unofficial motto of New Orleans. Translated exactly it would mean "(You [plural] let (or permit) the goodtimes (you plural) roll (or drive, in the sense of driving an automobile). Thus a better more exact translations might be "You all permit the goodtimes you all drive." Since this makes but little sense (if that), the more colloquial translation is preferred.)

Not having seen hide nor hair of my sister for a year or more, she might fait la pisse bleu. Ou verte, ou blanche, ou noire, ou fuschia. Not having seen her doesn't mean that she's not okay, just that I haven't seen her.

Anyway, I'm back from Boise and ready to continue my duties as Official Translator From French To English Or At Least American. As I was saying to someone just the other day, "Tant pisse, mon ami, le sacrebleu est la belle demoiselle qui passe la-bas est la voisinne du Jacques. Maintenant, hola Isabelle! Como esta? Ich du gedanke!"

Well, naturally they replied, "Dumheit! Scheisskopf! Tete du merde! Tonto! Cabeza de caca!" Which, of course, was a wonderful paen to my linguistic ability. Indeed, one of them, a PhD in Modern European Languages, even went so far as to say that my perspicacity, modality, and all-around smarts made me the single most cunning linguist he'd ever met. Needless to say, it's seldom that such a compliment is handed to me, and I was duly modest in taking bows.

Welcome Hrothgleas. I can think of no better entry into this bizarro world of BS than to start expounding upon the virtues of keyboard bands. I applaud and salute you vigorously!

Where is Penelope Rogglodge keeping her tartly self? My god that woman is fascinating, even though she detests me so bitterly and would have me flayed and consumed by the invading freds for amusement given the opportunity.

And what of the King of All Bullshit himself? It is rumored that the Royal Palace in Mississippi was underwater and sinking like fabled Atlantis with him on his throne.

And where is the High Priest of All Horseshit,the flatulent and highly volatile Catspaw and the CLETISIAN Forces? O, how I long for the days of truly sumptuous bullshit, exploding outhouses, the rocketing blow-up sex dolls, KingKhandu receiving his electroshock treatments at Neil Young's very exclusive rehabilitation spa.

Bring the BS to the table along with a well cooked mallard and the Royal Dancing Tarts. We must make merry as we have nearly reached 900.

Gotta be a first for MOAB as well. What an honor for hrothgleas. Years from now when the MOAB has reached its own millionth post hrothgleas can proudly say, "That was the first Mudcat thread I ever posted to." The implications are astounding. What if all new Mudcatters were to be required to make their first posts to the MOAB? What if every new Mudcatter were to be required to read the entirety of the MOAB before making that post? That'd be one way to run those music snobs outta here and insure a firm foundation of certifiable BSers. Hoo-haw!

What Bubba Bubba has yet to explain is, given that this extraterrestrial/interspecies reproductive endeavor will involve four beings of one kind or another, which one of us actually gets knocked up? I certainly hope it's the Lab. In fact, I certainly hope the Lab is a female Lab. Either that or I hope that the offspring is awful damned small 'cause I don't think khandu or I either one have the proper equipment for childbearing.

Furthermore, I certainly hope this clusterfuck does not actually involve khandu and my humble self knowing each other in the biblical sense. I'll pour tupelo honey or possumhaw syrup on the sumbitch if that stirs Bubba Bubba's grits, but that's about as far as it goes.

And, Rustic, I'll take some pictures but I'm gonna put 'em on a website and charge $39.95 per month membership. But you Rapaire and Amos can all have the first month for only $19.95.
