The Devil was my Daddy, a blight on Earth's green crust
Then one day he did a kindness; I only felt disgust
What brought my strange determinator
To his kind act? (I understood later)
Forsooth: If you can't trust the Devil who can you trust?

FARD - FASCINATE

Yes, Peter! You're right. That's what my objection is. The board used to be about the discussions and the topics and the games not about "rubbing people the wrong way subtly or overtly." Do stay*, Cap K. Take a break - it helps; or post less that also helps.

Edit: *only because the intelligent people still outnumber the ...umm... [add euphemism] ones.

Er, Ivy...not to mingle in your personal affairs, but don't you think your well-meant advice to Capt K should be given privately? I know that you "intelligent people" doesn't want to offend " the ...umm... [add euphemism] ones".

Of course not. smile

Sounds like a judgment call. Who determines who is and who is
not ....umm....[add euphemism] intelligent?

"Fard"? Is this the Sparteye's Game thread or the Hogwash thread ? ;-)

I know it's exceedingly hard
To fascinate fans of the Bard
...But if one day you wake up
...With much too much makeup
You haven't read well, and you're fard.

(Yes, I know, it's great stretch. But as Winnie-the-Pooh says, "It isn't brains, because You-know-why, Rabbit, but it comes to me sometimes...)

CAPUCIN -- CATERWAUL

Way down south in old Alabamee
The zealots dispute Darwin’s theory
But their caterwaul calls
Sounds like capucin balls
In reason’s sweet mangle – so cheery!

Speaking as a southern Southerner I would like to say that I am sorely offended by Maverick's post. Damnit Maverick, the affectionnate of Alabama is not Alabamee it's Alabammy, like in Mammy, like in Al Jolson, like in proper upbringing.

How easy you forget: Charles Darwin was vindicated of all his heresies in the Tennessee monkey trial. But in compromise the judge let us keep on speaking in tongues and handling our snakes.

You're right of course, Miss jj, how could I so forget mahownsef? Please accept the humble apologies of someone writing, in a Forn Tung, with more haste to join the Bridge table than was seemly, decent and proper by the fine sensibilities you embody. smile

Well, a remorseful man does touch my heart...

Yes, Mister Maverick (may I call you "Mav")
I will forgive you, Mav, but only if you stop playing that childish game you call Bridge and immediately begin growing a beard to cover your weak chin so you'll look more like General Stonewall Jackson.

You know what, dear Mav?
I think that this is the begining of a beautiful friendship.

Ah well, forget it. It's allright as it always will be. Wish you all a good day and a happy night.
