It's meaningless, because it's taken out of context. You know not the crime for which he will swing, the gaol or how it ends. Unless you knew from whence it came. It stands alone in its meaningless form. It surely has more cache then the purple cow chant.

Now you've called someone an oxymoron. Does that mean a moron the size of an ox? Or an ox that resembles a moron?

A rhetorical figure in which an epigrammatic effect is created by a paradoxical conjunction of terms. I'm getting lightheaded. Clearly out of my league-Can't play with the Big Boys. Going home to lament my failings. Thanks ttr.

Thomas Dear Heart, My issues are Oscar's Wild(e) thoughts-but you knew that didn't you?

Waste not your sympathy on me
Spend it wisely on the world.

At once the sun would warm,
the stars would shine,the
flowers would delight, and we
would wish again upon the moon.

And hearts would soar.

Many sides the fence has watches

I walked, with other souls in pain,
within another ring,
And was wondering if the man had done
a great or little thing,
When a voice behind me whispered low,
"That fellow's got to swing."

That was about as meaningless as "the Accounting Song" there Annon... Plenty of folks like that, and perchance you are three or four of them... eh?

Once I was a carriage bolt, all sleek and strong and slender
When getting loose was my revolt, I squandered legal tender
But now that consellations bear the weight of 'magination
Ordinary with a query... care I for inspiration?

I HAVE LED A GOOD LIFE (STUPID'S SONG)^^^
(Utah Phillips)

I have led a good life full of peace and quiet
Now I shall have an old age full of rum and riot
Yes, I have been a good lad, careful and artistic
Now I shall have an old age coarse and anarchistic

Once I paid my taxes and followed every rule
Banker, boss and bureaucrat thought me a willing tool
I voted Democratic and paid the church its due
Now all those swine will have to find some other chump to screw

Of interest, banks and credit, insurance, tax and rent
Of lawyers, agents, generals and clerics I repent
With this [mono digital expletive] for corporations and scorn for those elected
I shall be an old bum, loved but unrespected^^^

piffle! 'cook' simply means 'applying heat to food to render it (more)palatable. It's just that we often use specific terms, like 'bake' and 'fry'.

In New Zealand, there is a parrot that is so stupid, it has a) forgotten it can fly and b) doesn't know what the opposite sex looks like until they happen across each other at mating time. When this happens the male forgets it can fly and spends all its time hopping round on the ground waiting for the female who is in a tree. The female sits there thinking - 'here I am, come and get me. I'd come down to you, but I can't fly'.

Needless to say, they are quite rare.
