Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads

Of all the offspring ever sprung
The old, the fat, the lean, the young
The hard, the weak, the strong, the slack
Only a few are truly whacked.
Chicago Slim, and Boston Blacky
Were both especially whacky.
But in all the world, one whacky fellow
Who lives up north, in Pocatello,
Is first on any whackster's list.
And some say never would be missed.
This glib rapscallion is so slick
So quick of tongue, of wit so thick,
So smooth of eye, this northern toff
Some say he should just be whacked off.
But that would be both crude and tacky.
So we'll just leave him being whacky.
And if he's offed, for joy or pelf,
He'll have to do that task himself.
