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

Far past the unsheathed range of night,
Beyond the plane where mortal beings stress,
Struggling to master lesser rights
And fearing greater wrongs to e'er confess,
Beyond the realm where human turmoil reigns
And cruel force reduces all to nil,
There is a sphere, free from contriving pain,
Where all is whim, and light, and Will.

In these high ranges darkness yields to light,
And high creative spirit bans duress;
Here is the answer to the mortal night,
Immortal font of all true, pure, B.S.
None here does suffer from confusion's strains
Nor stumbles, crushed in flesh and will;
Here doth every soul their right regain,
And in creative honor shine both bright and still.

These are the powerful sources of our Mother's hand,
Which do inform her every smile and turn;
Then, stranger, follow, to a better land,
Where bright B.S. doth every honor earn,
And proud BS' torches burn, and burn.

Antony Anstyly
Where Dwells The Not
Murk and Maunder, pubs.

You braggardly snake-in-the-grass; do you think I do not recognize my own style? For fie, for foo, you trifle with me in a most unbecoming way. Tell your wife your suits are all full of holes.

Hay, Little Hawk, Shatner got himself (or his middle digit of his right hand) pixilated on Conan. Gasp!

I did 'em, Amos. Would I do else? And if you think so, you still gotta prove it. And my wife's a LAWYER who taught me all sorts of law stuff about untellectual properties and things. So I just say to you, "Ipso ex post facto, de minimis non regit lex", which was clearly established in U.S. v. Burr, Ariz. Terr. v. Wyatt Earp, et al., Crown v. Louis Riel, and of course, Falwell v. Flynt. And this can all be ultimately decided, as so many cases in the Old West have been, by the precedents set in such cases John Henry Holliday, et al. v. Clanton Family, et al., City of Northfield, Minn. v. Frank and Jesse James, et al., City of Coffeyville, Kans. v. Gratt Dalton, et al., and many others.

I left my parents' homestead
"Succeed!" they did often me tell.
And little did I think I would shame them
By the cruel fate, that then me befell.

I wandered from city to sity,
Endeavouring my talents to sell,
But my efforts did fail, and at the end of my trail,
I'm only a poor ne'er-do-well.

I'm only a poor ne'er-do-well.
I'm only a poor ne'er-do-well.
At the end of the line, I look 'round me and find,
I'm only a poor ne'er-do-well.

So I wandered to far distant regions,
I hoped to leave shame far behind,
'Neath the Idaho stars, in the cheapest of bars
With worry my poor face is lined.

I cannot reach Upper CLass Heaven,
Not even Middle Class Hell,
I'm afraid in my time, I will turn next to crime,
As a nefarious ne'er-do-well

A nefarious ne'er-do-well!
A nefarious ne'er-do-well!
I have fallen so low, to my fate I must go,
As a nefarious ne'er-do-well!

So come, all you lads from the city
And may your endeavours be blessed,
Take a lesson from me,
No ne'er-do-well be!
Go become a nefarious success!

Become a nefarious success!
Become a nefarious success!
Take a lesson from me,
No ne'er-do-well be!

My lover came to see me;
I served him my very best!
Cappucino and a Scottish scone
Most elegantly pressed

He kissed me before eating
And in a manly show
He shoved that whole scone down his hatch
The whole thing in one go.

The crumbs they flew like fireflies
All across my kitchen floor
His shirtfront with them was covered up
Sure half a pound, or more!

He held me hard when parting
It made my heart to throb
I could scarcely to speak to tell him he
Was a true, God-awful slob.

Yeah, look what it did to Henry Fonda! He got so drunk on it one night that he ran off and shacked up with the chambermaid for the night. Of course, he was aghast when he woke up the next morning and hastily beat a retreat, covered with embarassment. He never acknowledged the girl, even though it later turned out she was pregnant as a result of the liaison.

She gave birth to a boy, but gave up on trying to get Henry to take responsibility, settling for some payoff or other to forget about it, and she moved up to a small coastal town in Oregon and raised the lad --whonm she had named Hargrove, after her own father--as a single mom for years. Finally when he was about nine, he asked his mother where he had come from, and she had to face the big question of how much to tell him.

She looked at him sadly and said,




...











....














"Absinthe made thee, Hargrove Fonda."

A man can dream, a man can think, and sometimes deeply feel.
A man can scheme and curse and drink, and lose his even keel.
Oh, a man can chase after many a goal,
He can strive for wealth like a real asshole,
Or spend life watching the waters roll,
Where the oceans meet the fields.
But the test of a man who is truly a man
Is to do everything that a real man can
To weaken the grip of reality's brand,
And throw off the cold realistic hand,
And make lesser thinkers' minds rock and reel,
Turning red to mauve and white to teal,
Leaving systems of thought all in dishabile,
As he makes things more surreal, my lads,
Makes things more surreal.

MY ambition is to make everyone's day a little more surreal.

As for randomization, you seem to forget that I work in a public library.

This afternoon, for instance, the Board of Trustees agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding with the local United Way to transfer a Winnebago from a UW agency to the Library for use as a bookmobile, PROVIDED that the City Council agrees. This would transfer the title from the UW Agency to the Friends of the Library after the Friends give the UW Agency $5,000, who would immediately transfer the title to the Library as an agency of the City, EXCEPT that the UW Agency would act in a very advisory capacity for the usable life of the unit UNLESS the arrangement was terminated by mutual agreement before then.

I've only been working on this since December, right after we got the dinosaur.

Heave and haul, my bully boys!
With rings of fancies 'round her head!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

She was mighty long and awful tall
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
And she moved around like a cannon-ball!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

Me mother she had twenty kids,
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
An' never minded what they did!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

She kept them clothed and kept them fed
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
And laid belying bars to their heads!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

And though this made their puir heads sore.
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
She says we often asked for more
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

One night when I my watch did stand
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
I felt me Mother's ghostly hand!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

"What has of all my young became?"
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
Her spirit whispered in my brain.
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

Oh, one has joined a band of cooks
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
And another trawls among old books!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

And several more have gone a stray
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
ANd never write from day to day!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

And one, the most contrarian
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
Says he is now a librarian!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

Me mother's spirit wept and wailed
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
And swore as Mom she'd surely failed!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

She cussed and swore and wept her tears
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
ANd suddenly, she disappeared!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

And to the day I do confess
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
I miss my Mom of All BS
