Catspaw! LMAO!

It's safe here in Wyomin' Come on out, pahdner! They only let sheepmen, oilmen, cattlemen, and true gee-tar pickers in here, no teeplays allowed (they've got VERY narrow minds, here, sometimes they forget and use them to sit on!). And, they've already got the Millenium alarmists in place, along with those who believe Armageddon is gonna coincide with Y2K, and the other loonies who want to break away from the USA and start their own "white" country.

You could all stomp on each other in a rush to buy up every gun, load of ammo, foodstuff, woodstoves, bunkers, etc. before you head for the hills. But, just remember....the eyes of Big Brother can see through the walls, can read the numbers on the money in your wallet, and knows what you dream about! I don't think it's the CIA, though! In reference to the What do Mudcateers look like posting I left, "What's so intelligent about the CIA?"

Having seen my own UFO, right here in ole Casper, I can just about guarantee it's those aliens and/or the men in black helicopters (our paper even did an article on some spotted here!)ala The X-Files. Aarrggghh, where's Scully and Mulder!? Did you know they actually traced the teeplay to an obscure moon of Uranus? Maybe they already got S&M? Wait...I hear something, my dog is going nuts, the cockatiel is banging on his bars, the cats are chasing their tails, it's.....

sorry, just a normal day at my house!**smile**

Ode to Tiples:

Where do they come from? What do they mean? Something heard in a dream? A nightmare more it seems, For Catspaw & Martin(Mar-teen)!

There's got to be more, but my brain just fried! It's been real...katlaughing

Whoo...Okay, it's morning, the shadows have departed and though it's cold, the sun is shining. One kid missed the bus, a cat barfed right outside the bathroom door, Karen's Prelude has a flat...things are looking normal.

Thanks for the reality check katlaughing. I think the wide open spaces attract the strange...not you...but the assorted kooks and nabobs you mention. I 'm not concerned about what happens at the critical Y2K moment in New York, London, Tokyo, etc. I AM worried about the effects in East Bunghole, Idaho!!! What if almost nothing goes wrong??? Might be like the A-bomb scenario. "We've got this thing now, don't need it, but damn! Whaddaya' think? Let's blast hell outa' somebody anyway!" If this hits the survivalists, supremacists, et.al., NOW THAT could be a bigger problem than anything on Y2K. Hey, I got an idea! Let's send them all tipples.

On the other hand we could talk about your moon and Uranus. Or mine...no, skip that, too hideuos for words and a picture is not readily available. But(t) when was the last time you mooned anyone(thing)(place)??? Sounds like a thread topic. "WHEN and WHO DO MUDCATEERS MOON?"

Later,

catspaw

Yeah, I'm sorry to have cheated, but as it turns out we could eliminate the duplicate posts up there and the "Infamous Tiple Thread" would have been still been the thread with the magic number. There are threads more indicative of the meaning and purpose of this joint, but considering the "Thread-A-Thon" that we had, what could be more appropriate than this BS Classic?

Delete those duplicate threads and make it look like you hit the 300,000 mark by pure coincidence?
Not a chance, Spaw. You might hoodwink a JoeClone™ into doing it, but this is one time Joe Offer won't delete duplicate messages. They are part of our history.
Now, please don't start pushing for the 500,000 mark until we've hit 499,995, OK?

I guess we're not really going to discuss the tiple at all-Sometimes I think those "another one's gone" types have a point-;-)

Ok Ted.....This starte out a long time ago as a legit request and in the course of all the nonsense that was posted, you'll see there is also a good bit of actual info and opinions back up there along with the tiples relatives.

I find it a bit bizarre as an instrument. I know its been used in many more places than I had previously known. Perhaps if I had known back in the days when I worked in that store (see one of my above posts) then we may have sold one instead of it being the store joke. I still find it to sound like a tinny baritone uke. Outside of the "Queer Quotient" I really have never been a big fan of the strange combination type instruments....banjo-ukes and the like and the tiple hits that category in my mind, if not in reality.

Truthfully, I'd still love to know what actually happens to all those Martin tiples! (BTW, this thread started the Neil Young Center thing too)---You rarely see or hear them anywhere and Martin (others too) have built them as though there is a huge market. Where? Even though I may be a bit more tuned into the thing now, I can't believe people are clamoring fo tiples!

Just my opinion obviously.

Man. I was REALLY getting into the history of Tipples when we hit the armadillo detour and suddenly it was March of 1999 AND THEN I fall into a testimonial to 'spaw and the 300,000th message. This stuff is better than drugs.

Dear Sir/Madam - Please confirm my reservation for a space (Is a suite too big? Is a cell too monasterial? No cubicles, por favor) at the NYCFTTS. I'm going now and will arrive soon. I understand all my friends are there. . .Thanks

The true historical significance of this thread is not in what it says about tipples or even that it is a prime example of Mudcat humor. It's that of the thousands of known times that Spaw has used the term "fuck" on the Mudcat, it contains the only known instance of his apologizing for doing so.

Sometimes we stumble onto some of the coolest discussions. Before today, I'd never even heard of a Tipple. My having read the entire thread is merely proof that I ain't right. I just gotta add something to all this... Arthur Murray.. you know, the dance school, says a Charanga is a type of music, Latin in origin,(it may well be a type of instrument too, for all I know) and that the Pachanga is a dance, which is danced to a Charanga, and that the distinction was made to avoid confusion between the two.The pachanga (a mutated form of the cha - cha) was introduced to this country in 1955 by the Cuban Embassy at the Waldorf in NYC (No, the other NYC)by Eduardo Davidson.

Also... a helicopter gets silhouetted...even a black helicopter will appear black against a night sky. If they really wanted to hide them, they would make them light blue. But... then again, how do we know they don't? Ever seen one? The drug cops love to point this out to the MethCookers, just to keep them wondering... This site has some "serious chops" and I'll be back, fer sure. See yas!

It really surprises me that only three Mudcatters on this thread knew that the name of the instrument was "tiple" as opposed to "tipple".

It does not surprise me that MTed was one of these three ....

I had a tiple once, Murray, and learned the proper spelling by reading it off the strings package.

Contrary to what Spaw says, when it is tuned up to pitch, the instrument has an amazingly rich, bright, full sound. The downside(other than the fact that it is a nightmare to tune) is that there is a lot of tension between the the neck and the bridge. For this reason, the instruments tend not age particularly well. One day, without provocation, the bridge on mine tore out, taking some of the top with it--I had it repaired, but never trusted it again--
