Endogamy isn’t a sin
But the problem with marrying in
The self-same gene pool
Is that many a fool
Will endogenously rise from within

MARKET - MARRIAGE

Oh, dear. Now I'm never going to be able to come to this page without thinking of Gilbert and Sullivan.


I'm not up to it, but someone among us ought to be able to craft a new verse on MARKET/MARRIAGE and make it relate to The Sorcerer. The theme fits perfectly, and the music already exists:


"My name is John Wellington Wells,
I'm a dealer in Magic and Spells,
In blessings and curses,
And ever-fill'd purses,
In prophecies, witches and knells!

If anyone anything lacks,
He'll find it all ready in stacks
If he'll only look in
On the resident Djinn,
Number Seventy, Simmery Axe!"

(Here's the whole song; click on the "MIDI" button to hear the music and sing along yourself, if you like!)

Bought a huge robot wife in the market,
Which provides ecstasy in the dark. It
Makes our marriage delightful,
But expenses are frightful:
I need a cheap place I can park it.

FIDDLER – FIFTY-FIFTY

Not what you're looking for, wofa, I'm afraid, but what I have time for.

This isn't part of the game - it is purely for Wofa!

THE SORCERER by G & S

A marriage of choice we should be celebrating
Of Alexis and Aline, who’re participating.
The market in Magic
Threatens to be tragic
But it all ends with general congratulating!

Thinking on it, this verse, with suitably changed names, sums up most of G & S's output!

I bought two monkeys for reasons you might think specious
Monkey Marriage will curb Monkey Sex was my only thesis
I married them; put them in a small room
Filmed every act of a long honeymoon
The chimp smiled as the medics tried to revivify the rhesus

No new words. Jus' catching up. confused

smile loved that, Tromb


There once was a fiddler from Kent
Whose passion for music was bent;
He played for the girls
Fifty-fifty in curls
And a dress that his auntie had lent!

Forget --- forgive
