I think Mablo is a Nigerian title of royalty, actually. Means "Tallest Shitball" in Kumbawi-Setana, the most popular dialect in the prairies sector of that sorry region.

Or WILLIAM SHATNER IS PRINCE MABLO. Or LOAMB. Or LAMBO.

The last word doesn't matter, since it's a proper name of some sort. The important thing is the William Shatner has been conclusively identified as Prince, or the singer formerly known as formerly known as Prince.

I, myself, would never have guessed.

Mmmphhh....BECOME? I am sure in my good friend's case it is far too late; strangeness has become terminal.

Besides at the moment it is dark out and I want to stay inside.

No, let them play in public. It wasn't computer stuff, or any of the really bad things. Besides, without our restraining influences they'd become strange...

Well, Amos, "Παντα ρει και ουδεν μενει", you know. Or, perhaps apropos, "Δεν πρέπει να επιδιώξουμε να αφαιρέσουμε από τις αποτυχίες των μεγάλων κανόνων Ελλήνων και Ρωμαίων για την ορατή μορφή μεγαλοφυίας εφ' όσον δεν μπορούμε να τους αντιπαραβάλουμε με τους ελληνικούς βλάκες."

"The Mom Always Rises" is a book by Hernie Emingway. He also wrote "The Bread Always Rises," "The Rise Always Rises," "The Raised Always Rises," and other such books. Hernie wasn't one to let a good title down. He learned that after writing "The Old Man Who Could See"; that was followed by "The Old Men And The 'C'," "The Man And The Old Sea," and others along the some line. Hernie always beat a plot line to death, too.

I see MOM is back at the top, that's good. Sorry I wasn't here to help with the lifting for a couple of days--the phone went out on Saturday (and still hasn't come back yet. . .) Phone company ran some sort of diagnostic and then asked if I had any dogs in my back yard. Typical phone company non sequitur, eh? I assume they think the phone problem is MY fault--I suspect that one of their minions turned off my switch at the box up the street when they were working up there.

Anyway, MOM, this may be a brief visit--I just called my house from the office and the answering machine didn't come on, so I think I'm still out of DSL there.

Hold the fort, snotty or otherwise, guys.

Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. A yellow dressinggown, ungirdled, was sustained gently behind him by the mild morning air. He held the bowl aloft and intoned:

-- Introibo ad altare Dei.

Halted, he peered down the dark winding stairs and called up coarsely:

-- Come up, Kinch! Come up, you fearful jesuit!

Solemnly he came forward and mounted the round gunrest. He faced about and blessed gravely thrice the tower, the surrounding country and the awaking mountains. Then, catching sight of Stephen Dedalus, he bent towards him and made rapid crosses in the air, gurgling in his throat and shaking his head. Stephen Dedalus, displeased and sleepy, leaned his arms on the top of the staircase and looked coldly at the shaking gurgling face that blessed him, equine in its length, and at the light untonsured hair, grained and hued like pale oak.

Buck Mulligan peeped an instant under the mirror and then covered the bowl smartly.

-- Back to barracks! he said sternly.

He added in a preacher's tone:

-- For this, O dearly beloved, is the genuine Christine: body and soul and blood and ouns. Slow music, please. Shut your eyes, gents. One moment. A little trouble about those white corpuscles. Silence, all.

He peered sideways up and gave a long low whistle of call, then paused awhile in rapt attention, his even white teeth glistening here and there with gold points. Chrysostomos. Two strong shrill whistles answered through the calm.

-- Thanks, old chap, he cried briskly. That will do nicely. Switch off the current, will you?

He skipped off the gunrest and looked gravely at his watcher, gathering about his legs the loose folds of his gown. The plump shadowed face and sullen oval jowl recalled a prelate, patron of arts in the middle ages. A pleasant smile broke quietly over his lips.

-- The mockery of it! he said gaily. Your absurd name, an ancient Greek!

He pointed his finger in friendly jest and went over to the parapet, laughing to himself. Stephen Dedalus stepped up, followed him wearily halfway and sat down on the edge of the gunrest, watching him still as he propped his mirror on the parapet, dipped the brush in the bowl and lathered cheeks and neck.

Buck Mulligan's gay voice went on.

-- My name is absurd too: Malachi Mulligan, two dactyls. But it has a Hellenic ring, hasn't it? Tripping and sunny like the buck himself. We must go to Athens. Will you come if I can get the aunt to fork out twenty quid?

He laid the brush aside and, laughing with delight, cried:

-- Will he come? The jejune jesuit!

Ceasing, he began to shave with care.

-- Tell me, Mulligan, Stephen said quietly.

-- Yes, my love?

-- How long is Haines going to stay in this tower?

Buck Mulligan showed a shaven cheek over his right shoulder.

-- God, isn't he dreadful? he said frankly. A ponderous Saxon. He thinks you're not a gentleman. God, these bloody English! Bursting with money and indigestion. Because he comes from Oxford. You know, Dedalus, you have the real Oxford manner. He can't make you out. O, my name for you is the best: Kinch, the knifeblade.

56

He shaved warily over his chin.

-- He was raving all night about a black panther, Stephen said. Where is his guncase?

-- A woful lunatic! Mulligan said. Were you in a funk?

-- I was, Stephen said with energy and growing fear. Out here in the dark with a man I don't know raving and moaning to himself about shooting a black panther. You saved men from drowning. I'm not a hero, however. If he stays on here I am off.

David Gergen frowned at the lather on his razorblade. He hopped down from his perch and began to search his trouser pockets hastily.

"Good grief," he cried thickly.

He came over to the gunrest and, thrusting a hand into Bert's upper pocket, said:

"Lend us a loan of your noserag to wipe my razor."

Bert suffered him to pull out and hold up on show by its corner a dirty crumpled handkerchief. David Gergen wiped the razorblade neatly. Then, gazing over the handkerchief, he said:

"The bard's noserag. A new art color for our Irish poets: snot green. You can almost taste it, can't you?"

He mounted to the parapet again and gazed out over Dublin bay, his fair oakpale hair stirring slightly.

"God," he said quietly. Isn't the sea what Algy calls it: a grey sweet mother? The snot green sea. The scrotum tightening sea. Epi oinopa ponton. Ah, Convy, the Greeks. I must teach you. You must read them in the original. Thalatta! Thalatta! She is our great sweet mother. Come and look."

Bert stood up and went over to the parapet. Leaning on it he looked down on the water and on the mailboat clearing the harbor mouth of Kingstown.

"Our mighty mother," David Gergen said.


And you all know where this came from I reckon. Joyce could see a hundred years into the future and into Holy MOAB. A man of incredible vision for being as blind as he was.

There once was a lepton, all graceful and fair
Who fell for a quark full of charm
She gave herself to him, though she couldn't tell where
But the next day she learned, in alarm

No phase at all, no phase at all
She'd married a quark who had no phase at all
Worse than a bull with a Moebius ball
Is to wed to a particle with no phase at all.

She tried hard to cure him with rhythmic tunes
And by making him focus on the change of the moon
And he tried hard all day, but by the nightfall
The bugger still proved ha had no phase at all

No phase at all, no phase at all
She'd married a quark who had no phase at all
Worse than a bull with a Moebius ball
Is to wed to a particle with no phase at all.

The lepton kept striving for a couple of years
Her days full of hope, and her nights torn to tears
Drum lessons, and metronomes, quite useless did fall
On the ears of a quark who had no phase at all.

No phase at all, no phase at all
She'd married a quark who had no phase at all
Worse than a bull with a Moebius ball
Is to wed to a particle with no phase at all.

She finally decided, that poor little lass
That this life would soon turn her to drinking and mass
She could not endure it, neither future nor past
So she hooked up to an electron, and got away fast.

No phase at all, no phase at all
She'd married a quark who had no phase at all
Worse than a bull with a Moebius ball
Is to wed to a particle with no phase at all.

So all you new particles, born out of space
As you wiggle your charms, and put glow on your face
Remember the lepton, who came to a fall
By wedding a quark who had no phase at all.

No phase at all, no phase at all
She'd married a quark who had no phase at all
Worse than a bull with a Moebius ball
Is to wed to a particle with no phase at all.

It has come to my alertness, given the present state of an inactive mind that pretends alertness, that everything is an=a energy particle of an inactive piece of cow turd.
It really doesn't matter if the cow turd is black or white because generally it is brown, anyway.
Now where was I?........
I think I was saying
Bongo Players are affiliated with the repeating notion that the whiter shade of black can be glimpsed with a respect that all bongo players play with their drums better when the moon is at half phase than at no phase at all...

That type does. And decorator shapes, also. "Dung beetle sphere" is very popular. A well-shaped case-hardened ball of shit, taking it's shape from the joint activity of insect mandible manipulation and rolling for yards and yards until it can be shoved into the beetle's, er, um, hole.

Baby shit is only cute to those who have never changed a diarrheal diaper. Kids should be required to shit nice firm little pellets like rabbits.

It has occurred to me that throughout the history of the MOAB, we have equated the term "BS" with "Bull Shit". While there can be little doubt that the "S" does, indeed, represent "Shit", the "B" may, in fact, represent a number of shit-sources.

So, if you ever feel that your post doesn't quite measure up to "Bull Shit", please feel free to choose an appropriate "BS" from the following list:

Buffalo Shit
Bison Shit
Bullmoose Shit
Bird Shit
Butterfly Shit
Beetle Shit
Badger Shit
Bat Shit
Buzzard Shit
Boa Constrictor Shit
Bonobo Shit
Burro Shit
Bandicoot Shit
Boar Shit
