Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
We were eighteen nine and sixty five
Forget it I never can;
We were hard turned out on the MOAB rout,
Heading strong for nineteen grand, oh, man,
Heading out for nineteen grand.

There was whacky Hack and Rap the Black,
There was a Sage from the cold north-west.
And no-one knew if it could be done,
But we reckoned we'd do our best, oh, yes.
We swore to do our best.

We were climbing hard and feelin' tahred,
We was just about done in,
When Jenny from Australia said,
She'd take us for a spin, my friend.
Said she's take us for a spin.

Well, Still and I were feeling sly
So we swapped an ordinal pair.
And the n-dimensional twist of that
Would have left us all nowhere, and bare
Left us all out in nowhere.

But Jen was hot, and like a shot,
She stuck her paddle in,
With a twist and a shout she turned us inside out
And the whole thread started to spin, oh, man,
The whole thread started to spin.

So now we're back in the old time-stream,
Running free from the rocks and the sand,
'N if we keep our heads and don't blow a tread,
We'll get clear to nineteen grand, oh, man!
All the way to nineteen grand.
