The Committee of First Knowers has determined that Rapparee's invention of an All-Creator is actually a secondary character, and therefore not itself eligible for the narcissism position previously advertised. However, they stress that Rapparree himself is of course eminently qualified.

Yeah, you can hold a lot in a fedora. As for the "trading post" -- we know from your sister and mother what you were trading, and I've confirmed it with that dude in logging boots. I wanted to know, so I ask him and he told me.

I got no objections at all to you undyin', Rap. Go right ahead and rejoin the Earthly choir. We'll all be glad to see you back ASAP. As regards yer hypothetical comments about makin' me mess my undies, I gotta tell you...it takes a helluva lot to make me mess my undies. It ain't happened in a very long time. Matter of fact, I'm not sure it happened even back then...cos I wasn't wearin' undies in the days before I took up that job at the White man's tradin' post back in the old country. I was a little bush ape back then, and bush apes don't wear any clothes at all. I may've had a couple accidents in them early days when I was just a little shaver, as they say, but I been practicin' strong intestinal fortitude ever since I took up fedoras and firearms.

Chongo, it's, well, interesting. At the end of this tunnel of light is a guy who looks like a cross between Burl Ives and the guys in ZZ Top. He's wearing a dress that goes clear down to his ankles and he's wearing old-time calked logging boots. He told me that the whole of the "other side" is under repair and go "play with things" until I either undied or the repair work was done.

If you want me to undie, you have to close your eyes and wish real hard and say, "I do believe in fairies Rapparee" over and over and over and over for at least a whole day. If you don't want me to undie I'll make you mess your undies.

Seein' as I am a truly generous soul who likes helpin' the weak and doin' good in this world, I am gonna make some more FREE contributions here even if Amos don't see fit to hire me and put me on salary. That is the kind of guy I am, generous to a fault.

So, Rap, tell me...what is it like bein' on "the other side"? Is it as good as bein' here? Or is it even better? I been pretty close to death on a few occasions, so I have a natural curiosity about the subject. Have ya got to meet any other spirits of the departed and compare notes? Have ya come across anything that resembles either "heaven" or "hell" or did that turn out to be a bunch of hooey? If you do get to visit hell, there's most likely a gorilla there that I would like you to look up...his name is Vinnie "D". If ya find him, say you got a message from Chongo: "Hey, Vinnie? Remember me? I remember you. You are not missed, old pal, but you are remembered...kinda like a bad smell." Ook! Ook! ;-D

Of course it is going too far for a three-foot tall simian. If you were a towering giraffe, you'd probably think it was just right. But you're not, see?

Anyway, I am sorry to tell you that the position is oinly open to first-order creators of narcissistic BS, and not their figments, spirit animals, angel guides, cartoon deities or any other secondary or tertiary order of entity.

Being as you were dreamed up, by yon what's his name, you are a second order entity. WHen you dream of Betty Grable shaking her garters at you, that dream-creature is a third-order entity. If you dreamed of her fantasizing about Erroll Flynn, that Flynn entity would be fourth-roder, and so on.

THere may be a zeroteth order--the one who dreamed up LH's person, in this example. But that is beyond the scope of this thread, believe it or not.

But.........YIKES!!! Talk about yer salacious and downright filthy websites. This stuff could curl yer hair and probably curdle milk too. Pretty shocking. I thought I had already seen everything, but it turns out I was wrong about that.

So, you are lookin' for (more) narcissists for yer Mother of All BS Threads, are you? Lemme see...

Yeah, I think I can qualify pretty good for this job. I got a good healthy ego and I ain't afraid to admit it. I have always felt pretty damn important in the bigger scheme of things and I don't see no good reason not to feel that way. But I ain't introverted. I hope that is not a problem! If it is, too bad, cos I expect to get this job anyways and I ain't takin' no for an answer, introverted or not!

"Egoism definitely helps."

Great. I got enough of that to satisfy the demand. And then some.

"Must have life-long preoccupation with own importance."

That goes without sayin'. I knew from Day 1 that I was the most important individual in the general vicinity, not to mention most outlyin' areas all around it...

"Skills in banter and blind-eyed rebuttal a strong plus."

Yeah, I think I can manage that just fine. Piece of cake.

So, what's the pay rate? When do I start?

Fly to BWI on the 29th of Sept.
Overnight in a motel near the aerodrome.
Get picked up by Amos and driven to Getaway, perhaps stopping on the way to pick up some fruit juice.
Be dropped of at the motel on Sunday, Oct. 2.
Fly back on Oct. 3.

IT was a dark and stormy knight that Arthur was trying to find to ask some question, the one who had traveled all the way from Czechlandia to be at the Round Table. Arthur wandered down to the knights' dressing room where half-a-dozen of them were sitting around half-dressed, and asked for the Czech.

Galahad pointed across the room--"THe Czech is in the mail", he explained.

Sad is the fortune of creditors all
For though hold debtors completely in thrall
If the debtor he ups and breaks his old neck
The creditor never gets hold of a cheque!
And though some love their debtors, some simply abhor 'em.
It's a wonder they didn't go break their necks for 'em!

ANyway, I don't think Rapp wrote that blues line, or even regenerated it under his own handle, in any literal sense -- if he had not woken up this morning, he would nt have been able to log on, would he? Let's not get all carried away, here.

The lads were working hard and long,
The ladies worked as hard,
Hewing the timber, laying on chow
And shaping up the spars.
The neighbors down the road were there
Most everyone you know,
And they all knew the time was close,
With seventy posts to go.

The frame was lying on the ground
Her timbers broad and green
And the roofing splits were ready by
As fine as ever seen
We was all chuffed up at what we'd done
And a couple of gals did say,
It'll be a hell of a raising up,
When we raise the 42 Kay!

She'll be wide and high and handsome
We'll dance and sing and play
On the day the whole gang raises up
That Forty Two of Kay


The buckboards came a-rolling up
Loaded up with hams and stew,
And a dozen kegs of the very best
Of tree-nails, long and true.
A half-a-dozen kegs of beer
In the cool of the spring stream lay,
Awaiting for the raising up
Of the Forty Two of Kay!

The girls who went to Sunday school
With bouquets wandered up
And one-eyed Pete with his rosined bow
Commenced to tuning up.
Somebody brought a banjo out
And started into play
And everyone was readying up
For the Forty Two of Kay!!

She'll be wide and high and handsome
We'll dance and sing and play
On the day the whole gang raises up
That Forty Two of Kay
