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

II:

We had run past thirty-nine and five
On a bitter afternoon
And the ice below was starting to go
And we had to pass through soon,
Or we'd all be dead and frozen hard
Or something even worse!
Like strapping reefs on a ninety-foot yard
Or reading MOAB verse!

All the dogs knew it was getting tight
And bad news was in the wind
It's a thing with dogs, and they're always right
They smell harm, like a nun smells sin.
So when Bruin started to clip and whine
And snap at the lead dog's toes
We knew he had something on his mind,
But what, we did not know.

Then the wind died down to a deathly hush
And the pale light faded to gray
But we yelled and whipped, and we made them mush,
All obsessed with the next of Kay.

I dunno, Amos. I've known quite a few nuns (and still do) and most of them figgered that your sins were your problem. They didn't and don't go around smelling it out. Brings up a mental picture of two dogs when they first meet.

Mothers Superior might smell sin more acutely than their flocks? We know that there is no link, linguistically or by DNA between MOM and any MS, but what they deal in is remarkably close to BS.

Just a thought.

All this flippin' nonsenxe about reachin' 40,000 posts on this dumb flippin' thread is pretty stoopid, eh? Waht differense does it make anyways? Who really cares? I know I don't. If it was reachin' 40,000 times in bed with 40,000 different women then I coudl see what the big fuss was about, eh? That would make a vast deference, I am well on my way to that. No word of a lie. I been around some, eh? Or if it was 40,000 bottles of beer drunk! That woudl be impressive. I am somewheres maybe halfway to that mark and I hope to reach it by the time I am, like, 30, eh?

When I do you can all, like, bow down and worship me, eh?

No, Shane; we (or at least I) declined to get lured in to your synthetic, arbitrary, whimsical erection of a hollow, straw-man target. True BS does not get fooled by false gold. We know the real thing when we smell it...

Yup, Amos. And Shame's the REAL thing, alright -- he certainly smells bad. I've heard that when he visits the zoo the jackals and vultures throw up.

He did have a job for a while, sitting on the Blind River garbage dump, so the buzzards wouldn't land. Lost the job because no human would come there either and the garbage was building up in town. Shame was really disappointed because it was "all you can eat."

WE put three nine sixty one behind
As the night was drawing in
But the wind blew ice shards into our eyes
And we were blinder than the darkest sin.
And we should have stopped and made a camp
ANd let the good dogs rest
But our minds were fixed on the next o' Kay
ANd our hearts was froze in our chests.

Through a dark short night, we trusted to luck
And let Lead Dog find our way,
And we whipped and mushed like crazy fucks
Through that night and into day.
The ice was hard on the runners' sides
And hard on the dogs' cold paws
But they all sensed fire astride those sleds
And no care for nach'l laws.
When the cold long dawn came slowly on
And the black ice was turned to gray

Do you find you are forgettin' important things lately? I never forget to laugh, and I never forget to keep my guns loaded, but sometimes I forget to take the garbage out on time. I hate that. If you find you are forgettin' a lotta stuff, there is a memory enhancin' product I can recommend. It is powdered bananas mixed with red hot pepper and made up into suppositories. Every time you get a case of bad memory, you take one and shove it up you-know-where. It feels awful! Matter of fact, it feels so bad that you will probably never forget that particular matter again, cos the body has ways of protectin' itself against repeatin' a really bad experience, and yer body will automatically kick in and make you remember next time.

It so happens that I am sellin' bottles of this incredible memory enhancer for only $25 plus $5 shipping and handling.

But act fast! Supplies are runnin' low! In a week or so it may be too late and you will be sorry you forgot to act when you had the chance. Order NOW!!!! Play it safe and get 3 bottles for a bargain price: Only $70 plus $5 shipping and handling. You CAN'T PASS THAT UP!!!! DO IT NOW!

Why can't I buy dried bananas, grind them to a powder, and add red pepper, mix it in vaseline, and make my own?

Besides, I don't like a monkey telling me what to do.

HE can read the labels on whiskey, beer bottles, and boxes of ammo, but it is a limited skill based on imitation, acquired during his apprenticeship under Dashiell Hammett, who was not at fault. Hammett thought he was training a writer to turn out flat-foot pot-boilers he could then publish under his own name.

Instead of writin' the stories, I live 'em, buster. Hammett got some of his best ideas from me. I used to supply him with my old case files for a "stipend" (it's like money, only...it's smaller). You'd never guess how much I have contributed to classic crime fiction.

Hey, Siblings,
My library is going through the reference collection and updating it. They've identified ten dictionaries and eight sets of encyclopedias that they'd like to replace, and they're giving employees and their families [you folks] first dibs, since they were very expensive sets. The dates of publication of the encyclopedias are 1958-1961, 1965, 1973, 1977 and 1985. Would anyone like one or two of the other sets, plus several dictionaries? If not, I'll box them up and take them over to Rapp's house. Surely he can find a good use for them.

If it's the "Compleat Hardbound Edition", a large fork lift truck is required when you wish to move it around from place to place...one of those things accidentally fell on my cousin David in the ancestral library, and he went missing for a week. When he was found, they had to scrape him off the floor with a large spatula. Rather than attempting to bury him, the family had him varnished with a transparent sealer and turned into a wall mural.

Last night Dad and I talked about the many uses of old encyclopedias. Here are some ideas:
They help small children reach the dining room table
You can find really cool pictures to use for school collages
They can be turned into book crafts--like hollowed out treasure boxes
They are good late-night reading
They're helpful if the power goes out and you need an answer to a question
Use them with table leaves instead of mason jars to make ersatz bookshelves.
Fuel
Insulation
Bricks, as Stilly said

He would too soon become addicted and spend all his time rhyming and posting. This threat, in fact, is related in these words by Meredith Wilson, modified of course for the musical but originally written as shown below:

And all week long, your Pocatello youth'll be fritterin' away
I say, your young men'll be fritterin'
Fritterin' away their noontime, suppertime, choretime, too
Post for that big number
Never mind gettin' dandelions pulled or the screen door patched
or the beefsteak pounded
Never mind pumpin' any water 'til your parents are caught
with a cistern empty on a Saturday night and that's trouble
Oh, ya got lots and lots o' trouble
I'm thinkin' of the kids in the knickerbockers shirttails,
young ones peekin' into Mudcat after class
Ya got trouble, folks, right here in Pocatello
with a capital 'T' and that rhymes with 'B' and that stands for "Bee-Ess"

Oh, we got trouble

And when the sun came out of the ice
In its gray and wintry light
There was naught t'be seen but the pale white sheen
Where the hills and the sea lay white.
And the paths were white, and the sky was white
And white was the lead dog's breath
As if sea, and land, and dogs and air
Had agreed to jes' freeze to death.
And the frost was white that rimed our beards
At the dawn of that frozen day.
And the only glow came from a dream,
A dream of that distant Kay.

For we wasn't close--we had fer to go
We had over five hundred still.
With nothing to aid but the guts of the crew,
Our backs, and the dogs' good will.
We had little enough to eat or drink
And nothing' to ease our way.
And all we could do was mush, and think,
Think on that next of Kay.

Random acts of good news.

Got a call today from my local public radio station. Have won a drawing, (well, sort of, the first two names they drew declined the prize,) for a private wine tasting party with cheeses and chocolates for a party of 6 at a local winery.

Pondering why the first 2 declined.

You sip wine, swish it around like mouthwash (some of it tastes like mouthwash), and spit it out. Then you rench (hillbilly talk) out your mouth with water and do that thing with the wine again. Then the water, and so on. In the meantime you eat fancy tasteless crackers, somewhat decent cheese (not Velveeta!), and chocolates.

You can also swallow the wine, if you live close by or have a designated driver.

That sounds like a lovely occasion you can set up for yourself and five friends, Janie! Our local NPR station had a lot of folks call during the hour something similar was being raffled off (a tea party for 6 in the DeGolyer Mansion at the Dallas Arboretum). I suspect no one turned those down!

Lots of Mudcatters are under snow right now, but they're living in climates and places I'd prefer instead of Texas. Texas right now is relatively warm and sunny. That's the bummer, and the reason I'm still here - the spouse didn't want to leave to return to the east coast winters. Now an ex, but I'm still here, anchored by inertia and raising kids.

Oh, yeah. Here are some wine-tasting comments you can use so you seem sofistikated an all:

"A nice body, but perhaps the grapes were picked a couple of hours early."

"A full nose, reminiscent of blackberries, elderberries, and chocolate."

"Ah, just the right touch of a cinnamon taste."

Whatever you do, don't make comments like these:

"Last Tuesday -- in the afternoon, I'd say."

"The tastes of cherries, honey, and turpentine with just the slightest hint of gasoline."

"What a delightful treat for the nose! It reminds me of being tear gassed back in the Sixties."
