Subject: BS: Bee-dubya-ell
From: GUEST,OBIT?: Blinkin'
Date: 21 Apr 05 - 08:46 AM

Reports are circulating that Blinkin', of the well-known trio "Winkin', Blinkin' and Nod", has passed away after a brief illness. The reports have not been confirmed as of this writing. Has anyone else heard anything about this?

I've just done some checking on this. Seems like the Authorities found that there were termites introduced into the sole which ate their way around the section that held up B's bed. It fell into the water and he drowned.

This would normally be considered an acceptable hazard of the transportation mode select, except that the termites were of a species found only in Australia and only in the desert there.

It's considered a "Highly Suspicious Death" by Interpol.

I hope that the rumor about Winkin's demise is unfounded.

Could it be that the same person who started that rumor was also responsible for spreading the malicious tale that Bert [longtime live in partner to Ernie] died of AIDS?

And who was it that felt the need to spread the report that Batman and Robin have a 'special relationship'? Even if this is true-and I'm not sayin that it is-it's nobody's business but theirs.

Some people like to upset people by sharing made up stories.

I guess they don't have anything better to do with their time.

No, it wasn't a bottle of Mad Dog, John. Mudcat.org was down when I started the thread, so I had to use the no-log-in backdoor server. I was in a hurry and put my name in the thread name field and vice-versa. It was a dumbass mistake, but I've never claimed to be the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree anyway. I have begged the Omnipotent Ones to fix it.

What I regret about the error is that it has distracted us from the very real and serious subject of the thread. Blinkin' is, in fact, dead as a mackerel. Winkin' is under heavy sedation. Nod has gone into complete denial and gone fishing along with his good buddy Jack Daniels. It is a sorry state of affairs and, unfortunately, it's probably going to get much worse before it gets better.

If Winken is looking off to his left and up he's lying. If he's looking down and to the right it means he's remembering an actual event and, therefore, telling the truth.

I have this on the best authority. I saw it on a cop show once. Or maybe it was a dime novel. Anyway, I believe it and that's what matters. Or not.

Winken and Blinken are two little eyes...so if one of them is dead, they can be a pirate.

Being a pirate is all fun and games 'til somebody loses an eye
It hurts like the blazes; it makes you make faces
You can't let your mates see you cry.
A dashing black patch will cover the hatch and make sure the socket stays dry.

Photographic evidence ! If you look closely, you will see that not only is Blinken's one eye missing, Blinken his or her own self has become petrified! This is obviously the work of the Mafia or the Black Hand or the Cosa Nostra, who have been known to put people's feet into cement -- only this time the guys got carried away!

The missing eye provides absolute identification, as does fingerprint and DNA matching.

Fingerprints? What fingerprints? To have fingerprints, ya gotta have fingers. To have fingers, ya gotta have hands. To have hands, ya gotta have arms. That little guy/girl/whatever has no arms! So, it can't be Blinkin' 'cause ya can't play an accordion with no arms! Yeah, I know, that's the upside of havin' no arms -- nobody'll ever be able to make ya play an accordion -- but we've already deduced* that an accordion is going to come into play in this mystery in some fashion.

May we please pause for a station break so I can make these comments from the peanut gallery? Thanks.

I LOVE these play on words:

"Socket to them Blinkin, and I'll keep an eye open for the cops."
John 'Giok' MacKenzie

and

"Stick a sock in it."
John Hardly

But I suspect that in years to come most people won't know what "Stick a sock in it" means. And even fewer will remember the slang saying "Sock it to me" that was frequently used in R&B songs in the 1960s.

Of course, "Sock it to me" meant the same thing as "Let's rock & roll" which means the same thing as the contemporary Reggae saying "
"Let's get jiggy".

But I suppose most urban dance songs are so explicit nowadays that they don't need a coded phrase like "rock & roll", "sock it to me" and "let's get jiggy" when they want to say let's have sex.

Just wanted to give the posters I specifically mentioned and others on this thread some well deserved PROPS for your way with words..

Okay..Back to the program. On with the show...

Who offed Cock Robin? Sorry, wrong show..

Who killed Blinkin'- if he/she/it really was killed?

Inquiring minds want to know...

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Take care, TCB
Oh, sock it to me, sock it to me [etc.]

And for those with an interest in words, here's
the origin & meaning of "Sock it to me."

But you best be believin that when Aretha was demandin R-E-S-P-E-C-T,
she wasn't begging to be hit in the jaw...

But she was sayin "Give it to me".. And you know what she meant by 'it'..

So that's all folks!

Now what is really goin on with these Winkin', Blinkin', and Nod characters?

Did someone pull a fast one?

What about the Tetley Tea elves? Not that they acually did the dirty deed, but, rather, maybe they drove Blinkin' to take his own life with their incessant dancing. I'd like to teach the little blighters a new dance - one involving a new pair of sharpened football cleats. And their tea sucks.
