My God, the things people will do for their little moment in the sun... :-)

I note that William Shatner sat this one out, either due to his great compassion or because he has abandoned this thread. We shall see.

If you would reveal a granfalloon
Remove the skin from a toy balloon

come back to us William
come back to us now.
turn your eyes from heaven
rise again somehow.

If you bump into Jesus
maybe he can help you out
come back William Shatner to us now.

Buzz off, brother William
Go away from our door
Post not to the threads here
And plague us no more
Your style is offensive
Your hair piece is trite
Your acting's pathetic
And your singing's not right

You're a wanna-be loser
And a has-been of yore
We don't need you here
You ain't intersting no more!
So Shatner yourself off
To some other club,
You're not wanted here, Bill,
So just buzz off, bub!

I personally think he's holding out for the 10,000th post. He knows how to keep his audience on tenterhooks...waiting with bated breath for his next appearance.

I must commend you Little Hawk. I applaud you. I would reward you financially if I were in a position to do so. I congratulate and acknowledge and thank you. I bestow on you the title of Master.

Not for your fraudulent esteem centered on Shatner, but for being the one person out of ten thousand who knows how to spell "bated" in the expression "bated breath".

You Are Old, Father William
(a parody by Lewis Carroll)

"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 you have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door
Pray what is the reason for that?"

"In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
"I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment one shilling a 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 such stuff?
Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs.

You Are Old, William Shatner
(a parody of Lewis Carroll)

"You are old, William Shatner," the young man said,
"And your hair has become very thin;
And yet you incessantly wear a bad wig
Do you think, at your age, this is "in"?

"In my youth," William Shatner replied to his son,
"I feared that it would be in bad taste;
But, now that I'm perfect sure I have none,
Not do do so would be quite a waste."

"You've grown plumb," said the youth, "Did I mention before?
Indeed, you've grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you tried a back-somersault in at the door
Pray what is the reason for that?"

"In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his few locks,
"I kept all my limbs very supple
And by very good luck avoided the pox --
Unlike you, with your brain of a bubble."

"You are old," said the youth, "and your brain is too weak
For anything tougher than mime;
Yet you've massacred Shakespeare, Shaw, and the rest
Pray, why did you commit this fell crime?"

"In my youth," said his father, "I took to the stars,
And commanded the Enterprise there;
And the dictatorial powers I thereby enjoyed,
Have created this cross you must bear."

"You are old," said the youth, "one would hardly suppose
That your voice was as steady as ever;
Yet you failed on recordings of wonderful songs
What made you think you were so clever?"

"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said his father. "Don't mess with your Pop!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I'll call for a cop!"

Marvelous, Rapaire! Marvelous! I am touched. Bill is touched. You are definitely touched. This poem of yours will be bronzed and put on display in the Great Hall of the WSSBA, to be read by generations of acolytes of the Great Shatner.

Amos - Thank you, sir! Indeed I do know how to spell "bated breath", and like you I am constantly troubled by the fact that almost no one else does. "For lo, the wind had abated, and the sails hung loose in the still air..." But you CAN reward me financially! I'll email you my street address forthwith, and you can send me a check for an appropriate sum...may I suggest 4 figures? No Italian Lira please!

Amos, Amos, Amos....

Everybody knows that it's "bated" breath. Misspelling it as "baited" is a cheap sophomoric attempt at wit. It's not that we don't know how to spell. It's that we are totally lacking in originality and won't let an old joke die.

Geeze, BWL, I was just trying to steer him off his obsession and fixation on Shatface. I don't care who knows how to spell what. Did you get wrongly disqualified in the 8th grade Spelling bee? Anyway, my little stunt is obviously overpriced since his feat is much less unusual than I said it was. So, LH, I will have to reduce my offer by half.

I just realized something. It hit me like a brilliant flash of lightning emblazoned across a darkened sky and gave me chills...William Shatner is probably the greatest thespian ever and he usually does not wear black! This has some profound significance upon which may hang the fate of Western civilization, and I am going to figure it out if it takes me all week. I would appreciate help on this if anyone is so inclined...

I don't usually wear black, unless you count my socks and shoes (and sometimes my underwear, but that's because I don't change it all that often). Some would also count my heart and soul.

BWL, them peanuts make a great snack in the evening with a little salt on 'em. And it seems like sometimes I eat my words.

No, really, all seriousness aside, I'm eating a high-protein diet and I'm limited to a max of 45 grams of simple carbohydrates per meal. Complex carbohydrates are another matter, as is fiber and shit like that (yeah, that was intentional). So, like I'm right here in potato country and I'm limited in the potatoes I can have. I rarely eat pasta things anymore, usually only at cheap-type luncheons that have a boring speaker and serve water with a tiny piece of lemon in it.

Now, EVERYTHING that's worth eating has gobs of fat and carbohydrates. Stuff like REAL pie crust and fried chicken and chicken-fried steak and garlic mashed potatoes and popcorn swimming in butter-flavored grease and lasagna and biscuits-and-gravy and pizza ice cream and corn on the cob...and...and....

So I'm eating stuff like jerky. Like broccoli. Like a very lean steak no larger than the palm of my hand (and thin, too). Like salmon fillets -- small ones. Like salads, with lemon juice instead of thousand island dressing. Like a tablespoon of bare brown rice.

I'm making myself very sad, but like I said, non-food stuff. It'll keep you alive, it's healthy as all hell, I've lost 22 pounds (weight, not money) since I started back in early February.

And nope, I wouldn't cheat, nope, not me, not ever, nope, no sirree!

The Chicken Story

Zeb was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young
layers, called pullets, and eight or ten roosters, whose job was to
fertilize the eggs.

Zeb kept records, and any rooster that didn't perform well went into
the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of Zeb's time; so, Zeb got a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone so that Zeb could tell, from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.

Zeb's favorite rooster was old Brewster. A very fine specimen he was,
too but on this particular morning, Zeb noticed that Brewster's bell
had not rung at all!! Zeb went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells a-ringing! The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover. But, to Zeb's amazement, Brewster had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

Zeb was so proud of Brewster that he entered him in the county fair.
Brewster was an overnight sensation.

The judges not only awarded him the No Bell Piece Prize but also the
Pulletsurprise.

Here's a little something one of them radical hippie commie Purdue University perfessers sent out:
------------
Two boys in Boston were playing basketball when a rabid Rottweiler attacked one of them. Thinking quickly, the other boy ripped a board off a nearby fence, wedged it into the dog's collar and twisted it, breaking the dog's neck.

A newspaper reporter from the Boston Herald witnessed the incident and rushed over to interview the boy.

The reporter began entering data into his laptop, beginning with the

headline: "Brave Young Celtics Fan Saves Friend From Jaws Of Vicious Animal."

"But I'm not a Celtics fan, "the little hero interjected. "Sorry, replied the reporter. "But since we're in Boston, I just assumed you were."

Hitting the delete key, the reporter began "John Kerry Fan rescues Friend From Horrific Dog Attack."

"But I'm not a Kerry fan either," the boy responds. The reporter says, "I assumed everybody in this state was either for the Celtics or Kerry or Kennedy."

"What team or person do you like? " "I'm a Houston Rockets fan and I really like George W. Bush" the boy says.

Hitting the delete key, the reporter begins again, "Arrogant Little Conservative Bastard Kills Beloved Family Pet."
