"Furthermore, Chongo came first!"

Chinga is a product of Amos's fevered imagination. Chongo is a product of mine. I can see no reason why they would be considered identical genetically or in any other way. Furthermore, Chongo came first! Chinga would never even have been concocted by Amos, had he not been inspired first by my stories about Chongo. She is a mere spinoff of an original idea, kind of like some of those other shows that resulted from the cast of Mary Tyler Moore as time went by.

Amos has referred to Chongo as an "ideational monstrosity", but has shown no remorse for creating an ideational monstrosity of his own in Chinga.

To Amos, I say: Fie, sir! Fie! For shame!

Finding an identical chromosomal pattern in no way indicates the success or failure of a given individual. My Great-Uncle Howard, for example, was by the end of his life looked up to by the community, whereas his identical twin helped pull on the rope.

I am sorry, but that is nonsense, Rapparee. Chinga could not be identical to Chongo--she has made a success of ife and taken responsibility for her situation. I suspect that in Chongo's case, the real identity of the mother was never known...

I was born with an XY chromosome pair, unlike a Certain Chimp I could mention. I suggest that Chonga and his/her identical twin sister, Chinga, be brought together and chromosome testing done. I'm sure you'd find them identical.

The latest rage on college campuses is to "get Chongo'd" on the weekend. This usually involves injesting copious amounts of alcohol, making whooping sounds, and destroying furniture.

He probably lived in the cave under my front porch and was mad because it's been filled in.

One of the support staff (the printing contractor) 'went Chongo' in the library yesterday. The guy is frankly disturbed and I think they ought to have called an ambulance for a ride to the psyhc ward, not call campus police to give him a ticket for some kind of mischief. I suspect he wears the headphones all of the time to try to mute the voices in his head. . . back to the regular odd voices. . .

Aw, Mom, where is it that you go
That leaves you drifting down so low?
I know you blame it all on gravity,
But I think that it's plain depravity.
You would not be so low and hurted
IF you were just less perverted.

Hey, MOM, I'm going to visit with family next month at a wedding. Most of my family members are pretty normal, just a couple of wackos in the mix. If I run into them I'll just treat them like the folks down at the Legion Hovel and give them a wide berth.

Y'all minus one. Who? I'll give ya three guesses and the first two don't count. Name rhymes with Stu... as in gnupid.

Guilty as sin, me. "Just havin a baaaad day" is no excuse. I will... once again... try to refrain from even opending those threads upon which I went Chongo.

You guys see my email re The Vinyl Cafe? That guy is a true weaver of far fetched funny fantasy. I know all of you will be getting together soon to decide what to get me for Kissmeass soooo I'll drop a subtle hint. Go to Amazon and buy me everything he ever wrote and all his recordings, ship them to him and explain what a great guy I am (most days) and beg and plead for him to autograph them all (bribe him if necessary) and include the shipping and handling to get them to me. And, don't wait for Kissmeass to draw nigh... just have the package marked "Do not open until December 25th." and Bob's my uncle eh? I promise I will act surprised. I will even send you all a beautiful pic of me opening the prezzy.

Shame to s/he who "lurketh and posteth not". Well, ah never. I do it mainly because the subjects veer and swirl so fast I can't keep up.

But I will post this just because I like it (Megan posted it in the Mudcat Community thread):

Be wise more often than we are foolish
Be peacemakers more often than we are warmongers
Be quiet talkers more often than we are shouters
Be compassionate more often than we are uncaring
Be bridges more often than we are walls
Be listeners more often than we feel the need to talk
Be gentle more often than we are harsh
Be forgiving more often than we are condemning

I must say this thread is among the few peaceful ones. Take a bow, y'all.

Let us talk about being on the cusp of real greatness. There are currently two threads in the BS section to which I have made the 99th post.

Just think of it! The potential for empowerment! Not one, but TWO opportunities for aspiring Mudcatters to post 100! on the same day.

Who knows, some one might score a double header!!!!!

I just love creating opportunities for people.

The British often referred to the American revolutionaries as "Yankees"...possibly since the rebellion really began in the New England states. They also referred to them as "those damned rebels". It has nothing to do with your American Civil War in either case.

We saw the Yankees comin' with a holler and a yell
We loaded ball and powder and we blew 'em all to hell
The General said, "Cease fire, lads, we've got 'em on the run!"
And we chased 'em back to Washington and captured all their guns

We caught a Yankee Captain and we marched him down the street
He was trembling in his boots as he staggered on his feet
The ladies laughed to see him, and the boys raised up a cheer
Then we took him to the arsenal and hung him by his ears

He dangled from the jackstaff, and he cried "Don't kill me, please!"
So we cut him down in pity, and we fed him mushy peas
Just like you'll get in London, and he grinned from ear to ear
He declared, "I've not been fed so well in 27 years!

We made him General's mascot, and he served as waterboy
While we torched the bloody White House, which gave our soldiers joy
We took him back to Canada with some other souveniers
Where everyone remarked upon the Yankee Captain's ears

For it happened that in hanging him they'd stretched a bloody yard
Now they hung around his buckles when the wind weren't blowing hard
But when it got a gale up they went streaming fore and aft
Like the pennants on a packet, and it made the sailors laugh

Now the Captain's been released and he's joined the British fleet
For he knows the Royal Navy is a force that can't be beat
He ties his ears back handsomely and when he loads the guns
He shouts "God Save the King, me lads, and to hell with Madison!"

Back in 1814 we took a little stroll
Over there to Lundy's Lane, we took some cannonball
We knew we'd meet the British there
And we'd whup some British....
And leave 'em there a'layin' in good Canadian grass.

Little Hawk--

Many thanks for that toe-curling review! Much appreciated.

"Beyond the Cascade" is a simply marvellous book, a great adventure story, and a philosophical-spiritual journey that gives the reader a great deal to think about. Suzannah is a totally believable character, a woman of great strength and determination, an original thinker who is ever intent on extending her horizons and not afraid to take on great risks in doing so. Every location in the story from New York City to the interior of Africa is depicted in beautiful clarity, and every character, major or minor, is interesting, colorful, and convincing. You grow to love some of the people in this tale, and that's what keeps you reading above all else. Who will enjoy "Beyond the Cascade"? Anyone who likes a cracking good adventure tale, anyone who sees life as a spiritual journey, anyone who yearns to go beyond mere surface appearances and find a greater Truth...with a capital "T". This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. How do I sum it up? By saying: I wish I'd written it. - George Coventry
