The MOAB Mississippi Blues

I'm goin' to MOAB Mississippi
Way down in the delta land
I'm goin' to MOAB Mississippi
Way down in the delta land
If you ever been to MOAB
I know that you will understand

They got turnip greens an' collards
Cornbread an' biscuits by the yard
They got turnip greens an' collards
Cornbread an' biscuits by the yard
You know I head on down to MOAB
Any time that life gets hard

Now the people down in MOAB
They don't ever treat you mean
Now the people down in MOAB
They don't ever treat you mean
All the women there are pretty
An' khandu he is the king

If you ever go to MOAB
Be sure to wear your dancin' shoes
If you ever go to MOAB
Be sure to wear your dancin' shoes
'Cause when you're down in MOAB
There ain't no need to sing the blues

Well, while I am honored to be included in your mental map, allow me to offer the caveat that identifying oneself with spaces can lead to great complication! :>)

I am basking in the thought of that glorious stretch of 4-lane blacktop known as "Little Hawkway", snaking its way through the MOAB Metropolis. Off to the right, we see the quaint neighborhoods lining Bee-Dubya-Ell Boulevard, and here comes the exit to Amos Avenue, a street renowned for its cultural centers and towering skyscrapers...far from the noisome haunts of the notorious Tweed Alley, hangout of drunks and panhandlers...

Better that Shatner should record it himself for full effect. They may throw their underwear at Tom Jones, but they throw themselves at Big Bill!

I am trying to picture the intersection of Penelope Rutledge Avenue and Tweed Alley... LOL!

Let them be, BW.

With something as wonderful as MOAB, emulation is inevitable.
I would not be surprised at MOAB board games, candy bars, sledge hammers, dog bisquits or anything else.

In fact, it has been rumored that Tom Jones is recording a folk song called "I wish I was a Moabite", penned by Shatner!

LH. . . I am (sniff) moved to tears by your profound, yet sensitive poetry. Truly, you do your fellow Moabites great honor! Such originality!!

Rapaire, I am presently afoot in establishing a Moab, MS. All the streets shall be named after my fellow Mudcat Moabites. Rapaire Road shall run parallel with Little Hawkway. P. Rutledge Avenue shall turn into Tweed Alley, since they are one and the same!

The Joe Offer Convention Center will be used exclusively for birthday parties!

Others are in the planning but I have not yet determined them.

"M" is for his Majesty the Khandu

"O" is for the Other fools who gather

Many people aren't aware of that MOAB has spawned two actual places! The is Moab, Utah, where they have chamber music concerts during the summer in canyons, mountain unicycling, and other such nonsense. And there is some area along the Red Sea, where there are ruins such as that of Wadi Punon.

Mother Rules!

We do not know if any of you live in Labrador, but if you do please note that it is beginning to drift. This is not part of the "Continental Drift" on tectonic plates, but rather due to the fact that the connection between the surface and the subsurface rocks has been severed, mostly likely by mischevious kobolds as a prank. We expect the drift to occur with the next few weeks.

Except for some danger to shipping (and the captains should really be able to see Labrador drifting towards them long before it becomes a danger), there should be no problems. Unless, of course, it is suddenly broken loose by a storm, heavy traffic, a breeze, heavy sneezing, or too many people flushing at the same time. In this situation we cannot predict with any accuracy the speed or direction of Labrador. Our best guesses are that it will collide, violently, with one or more of these: Iceland, Nunavit, Ireland, the Shetlands, the Orkneys, Massa..Masach..Cape Cod, or Florida; there are outside chances for collisions with British Columbia, Paraguay, and Aduk.

So, if you happen to see Lucy, we'd appreciate knowing where she's gotten to. She a black Labrador Retriever, and large, very, very large. And she likes to be scratched right behind her ears.

Thank you for your assistance.

Thespian, the discovery on Ship Island is not the first time this writing has come to light; In 1842, a stone tablet was discovered in Bloomer, Arkansas which contained the same message. It is now on display in the Bloomer Museum & Quick Lube.

The discovery caused quite a stir. A church was eventually formed called the Bloomer Stone of Moab Gospel Congregation. The members considered themselves the "Chosen" and all others were the "Philistine dogs". They also believed in chastity and purity to the point of having no sexual relations at all.

Needless to mention, they died off.

They are still discussed in Bloomer, often referred to as the "Moabites and their ilk".

Amos, have you ever seen ClintonHammond and Little Hawk together? I thought not.

Nor have you ever seen Tweed and Penelope Rutledge together at the same time.

For that matter, you've never seen me and you together.

Ergo,

ClintonHammond is LH's secret identity.

Tweed and PR are one and the same.

I, however, am not you. That would be fallacious reasoning, and I can prove my statement beyond any doubt whatsoever.

That would be Chattahoochee as in the Chattahoochee River, which forms much of the border between Georgia and Alabama.

Historico-geographical oddity: The town which is home to Florida's oldest and largest state-supported mental hospital is also called Chattahoochee. Oddly enough, the Chattahoochee River does not flow through or by it. Why? Because Florida, calls the same body of water the Apalachicola River, not the Chattahoochee. The dual naming goes back to colonial times, when Spanish Florida and English Georgia wouldn't agree upon a single name for the river. In the same spirit of non-cooperation, one of the large "lakes" caused by damming the Chattahoochee is called Lake Walter F. George by Georgians and Lake Eufaula by Alabamians.

More than you ever wanted to know, but somebody's gotta keep the thread refreshed.

it is well established that both the misbegotten ilk and the bewildered ilk were only discovered in the late 1600's - (in fact it is believed that the bewildered ilk is really only a local offshoot of the English "not a clue" ilk and didn't appear until approximately 1690) therefore the manuscript must indeed be a fake!

Now look here, Thespian -- I do not believe any magazine in its right mind published that, for very simple reason -- the writing is awful!!   It seeks to be biblical and in so doing fails miserably. It tries to use Elizabethan English constructions much as the King James translation does, but manifests unforgivable ignorance about persons and tenses of verbs, the proper use of pronouns and other basic rules of the trade. Confess, here, for the sake of your soul!! You have been counterfeiting, now, haven't you?

A recent issue of "Conundrum" magazine contained an article that I found quite interesting, which I believe is apropos for inclusion in MOAB.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

Ship Island, a few miles off the Mississippi Gulf Coast, has recently proven itself to be an archaeologist's dream.
   Kevin Whitehead and his partner, Bea Dubrielle, who have been doing freelance archaeological digs on the island, discovered a heavily constructed wooden box that contained a parchment scroll.
   Tests have shown the scroll to be from the late 1500s.
   The scroll contains a message written in an "Old English dialect" which speaks of a "land of Moab" and its inhabitants.
   Professor Jess P Amos of the Shay-Patterson Institute in Jackson Mississippi commented on the message:
   "It appears that this is a cryptic tale of the creation of a tribe of Moabites, which I believe is not the 'Biblical' Moabites. "
   Conundrum has been granted exclusive rights to print the entire text of the message, which appears below. . . .


It came to pass in the fifty-second winter, the king didst arise from the midst of Atalla in the deep. And the king didst look upon the void, and he didst behold the multitude; the rovers and their ilk, the ramblers and their ilk, the misbegotten and their ilk, also the bewildered and their ilk.

The king was moved with compassion upon them because they were without a land for themselves. He spake unto himself, "These art the outcasts. They hath no land for   themselves. Let there be a place fitting for these strange sort."

Three times he spake these words then he falleth silent for a half century.

In the second year of the new day, the king didst stir and he spake unto himself, "I will make unto these a land of fertile soil, a vast land that floweth with wonder and mirth; and they shalt come from all the earth to dwell in their land."

And the king didst mull and ponder for a short while.

In the fifth month of the third year of the new day, the king spake unto the multitude, "Let there be a land in which to dwell the rovers, the ramblers, the
Misbegotten and the bewildered, and all their ilk, and let them frolic and let them romp securely in the land in which they dwelleth."

And the king didst create the land and he calleth it the land of MOAB, and the inhabitants calleth he them Moabites. And he saw that it was good.

And the land did flourish and become great...yea, even greater than the king.

And the king rejoiced greatly and he didst calleth himself a Moabite.

And the king giveth stern warning, "Troubleth not the Moabites, lest I smite thee with a plague of slimy worms that shalt invade thine gonads till thine eyes buggeth out"

While perusing the "S" listings in the Dead People Server to which Rapaire linked, I noticed that Sam Shepard (playwright/actor born November 5, 1943) and Harry Dean Stanton (actor/musician born July 14, 1926) are both alive. That is not surprising since I don't think I've ever seen a Sam Shepard play (or even too many films in which Sam Shepard has acted) in which Harry Dean Stanton has not acted. This leads me to conclude that Sam Shepard and Harry Dean Stanton are, in fact, the same person. The fact that they are both alive is not a coincidence. I don't know how to account for the 17 year difference in their ages, but it's probably something about which Sam Shepard could write a pretty damned good play.
