Geez, Louise! I go away for a few days and when I check in I see so much chatter at Mudcat that NO WAY am I going to even try to catch up on those threads. But this one, I figure the MOAB, they're exchanging very short pithy remarks. Nope. No such luck. Miles of stuff to read to catch up again. Maybe in the next couple of days. . .

Shatner no less! Ugg!

BRAVO LITTLE HAWK!!!

Your ability to create seamless artistic unity from material you have blatantly stolen from others is simply astounding!

By the way, did you know that Fess Parker who played Davy Crockett is still kickin' and owns a winery and resort spa in California? I wonder if he and Shatner have ever met?

William Shatner, King of the Last Frontier

Born on a mountaintop in Canadee
Grew up to be the Number One Trekkie
Kissed all the girls on Canopus 3
Killed him a Klingon when he was sixty-three
William...William Shatner....King of the Last Frontier!!!!

Went off to college down at old McGill
Majored in drama, and got his fill
Schooled in Shakespeare and Buffalo Bill
Streaked the local nunnery just for a thrill!
William....William Shatner...King of the Last Frontier!!!!

Well, somebody told him then that he could act
So he started to believe it was a natural fact
He hammed and stonefaced and fiddled and hacked
All the way to Hollywood and never looked back
William...William Shatner....King of the Last Frontier!!!!

Then he went off to Star Fleet to serve a spell
To boldly go where no Man ever dwelled,
He fit them Klingons, we heared tell,
An' knocked 'em clear from the Pleides to Hell!
William...William Shatner....King of the Last Frontier!!!!

No alien lifeform could outface Jim
Cos he was the Man and the Man was him
"James T. Kirk", y' got that, Slim?
Toughest star captain that ever had a whim
William....William Shatner...King of the Last Frontier!!!!

With Spock and McCoy and Scotty too
He had him a bold and a reckless crew
They didn't fear nothin' and their fame just grew
And so did his waist...but what's a man to do?
William...William Shatner....King of the Last Frontier!!!!

Now he's a legend that'll never die
As long as the brave find a place in the sky
Where a man's still a man and a pig still flies                        
Like a big fat fist in the middle of your eye!
William...William Shatner...King of the Last Frontier!!!!

Hammed and stonefaced and fiddled and hacked
His talents lie on the Digestive Tract!

William, William Shatner!
Old and dull and fat!

Aw, Jeeze.... Now I'll have nightmares of Captain Kirk wearing a coonskin cap and calling his phaser "Old Betsy".

Grew up to be the Head Trekkie
Hangs out with Spock, Bones and Scotty

According to the National Center for Health Statistics of the CDC in a report released on (ahem!) my birthday this year, the average life expectancy in the US is 77.4 years (men and women, black and white, everyone tossed in the pot together).

Thus, if Mother is averaging 200 posts per month (and we're past that already) there will be 185,760 posts during her lifetime. I'm certain that with a little effort we could run that up to 250,000 or more -- after all, she's just about now starting to take her first faltering steps!

There is only one Mother! Her name is MOAB!

She is the Queen. She shall endure! She shall prevail!

Thou shalt have no truck with upstarts and pretenders.

Thou shalt also have no car, motorcycle, SUV or Bradley Fighting Vehicle with upstarts and pretenders.

Another brainstorm of mine, inspired by Tweed, Spaw, Carol the Sailor and their ilk.

We can save time which we spend searching through all the BS threads very easily. Henceforth, post all BS here in this thread. Soon there will be only one BS thread. We won't have to look for particular threads as this will be the only one and it will contain all the BS we have to offer.

My Gawd!! Why has this not been thought of earlier? It is so obvious!

Well, I like catfish if it's fixed right and I grew up on the banks of the Mississippi and I've even visited the state of Mississippi and I've sailed in the Gulf of Mississippi, but I don't live there and I wouldn't want to be an absentee landlord because that can cause a revolution or at least get you shot at.

Can I be king of the Portneuf River instead? Or maybe the Bloody Baron thereof?

Besides, Khandu might come back and then where would the ersatz king be?

I am sure the poem can and should be extended to include EGA, VGA, RBG, and WTFO monitors as well as flat screen and (when they arrive) 3D hologramic monitors. Bear in mind that Playgummer was writing at the turn of the last century and even brilliant and visionary poets can't be expected to get all the details right.

Come all ye loyal MOAB sons
And all MOAB daughters, too
And never let the scorn of others
Have a bad effect on you.

You may ride your chair buck naked
By the monitor's green glow
And never wear a stitch while here,
And no-one else need know!

So fear no bad opinion
Nor fussywussy wives
But follow MOABS freeing light
And live your own free lives.

The gossips and the bitches
Let them whisper where they will
And ride your keyboard starkers,
For the MOAB standeth still!

And for your freedom standeth tall
And evermore will do!
The MOAB's torch will never fall,
Held high by folks like you.

It's such a beautiful spring day today, and Rustic Rebel's post reminds me of a poem I enjoy, so I shall post it. Feel free to skip it if you have something else you'd rather be doing:

Father William

"You are old, Father William," the young man said,
"And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head -
Do you think, at your age, it is right?"

"In my youth," Father William replied to his son,
"I feared it might injure the brain;
But now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again."

"You are old," said the youth, "as I mentioned before,
And have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back somersault in at the door -
Pray, what is the reason of that?"

"In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his gray locks,
"I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment - one shilling the box -
Allow me to sell you a couple."

"You are old," said the youth, "and your jaws are too weak
For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak -
Pray, how did you manage to do it?"

"In my youth," said his father, "I took to the law,
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength which it gave to my jaw
Has lasted the rest of my life."

"You are old," said the youth; "one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose -
What made you so awfully clever?"

"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said his father; "don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to this stuff?
Be off, or I'll kick you downstairs!

------------From "Alice and Wonderland"
   
And no contribution at Mudcat would be complete without a parody (even though the Lewis Carroll poem is actually a parody in itself):

Parody: Father William

"You are old, Robert Dole," said a charming young lad,
"And by rights you should fade from attention;
"Yet I see you on TV most nights of the week--
"How do you stay so famous? pray mention!"

"In my youth," said the Senator, cracking a grin,
"I thought deep on political virtues;
"But that's dull. Those tax-policy meetings wore thin--
"It's more fun to just make commercials."

"You're old," said the boy," and it seems quite a reach
"To imagine you waxing gymnastic;
"Yet you turned a back somersault there on the beach--
"What led you to motions so drastic?"

"In my youth," said Bob Dole, "I drank nothing but Coke,
"Which rendered my limbs quite inert;
"But now I drink Pepsi, I prance and I joke,
"Play hopscotch, blow bubbles, and flirt."

"You are old, Father Bob, one would scarcely suppose
"That your dong was as potent as ever;
"Yet you have fine erections, as everyone knows--
"What made you so awfully clever?"

"In my youth," said old Robert, "I ran with the girls,
"And exhausted my membrum virile;
"But now, with the help of these versatile pills,
"There's nothing as firm as my willie."

"You are old, Father Robert," the young man said,
"Like Carter, or Ford, or Bush Senior.
"Unlike them, you shill for considerable bread--
"Do you think, sir, that you are a wiener?"

"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said Bob Dole, "you're a regular baiter.
"I've endorsements to do. I've no time for such stuff.
"You want purity? Interview Nader."

By the way, as discussed before, the proper pronunciation of the acronym for this thread "MOAB" is "moe-ab". The proper prounciation of the upstart thread's acronym "FOAB", is "fobe" and its regular contributors should be reffered to as "FOABics".
