HEAD – HEAL


An angry spell-check don’t appeal
But my head knows just how it must feel
When “IMPLEACH” is put in
You know it won’t grin:
Its anger just helps it to heal!

LEVERET - LIBEL

Eating baby bunnies is disgustingly tribal
Just where are rabbits deemed eatable in the Bible?
Even over in Tibet
Leveret is just not et
Show me that passage and I'll sue that Bible for libel. frown


What?
Oh...I get it...you all are talking about chocolate bunnies.
Oh,nevermind. blush

(Well, after a fashion. Remember? Sportin' Life sings it.)

"A leveret's got big floppy ears
It don't live no 900 years
...It isn't a libel
...To read in the Bible
A leveret's got big floppy ears."

(For a while there - when you started talking about the Bible - I thought you were going to make something about a young rabbi with tea ...)

laugh No, Mister Wofahulicodoc, I don't remember Sportin' Life's song.

I'm a bumpkin woman with a bumpkin woman's butt
I's make my monies with my bump and grinding strut
For you I'd charge fifteen cents
It'll add up to pay my rents
But I'd sooner drink muddy water than become your slut. smile

Porgy and Bess

From the 1969 movie. "Sammy Davis Junior is gettin' blasphemous."

Start at 1'10" and then when you've had enough fast-forward to 3'20"

... but could we have a couple of words, please?

(My forgetfulness seems to be catching - first Candy, then you!)

Sorry to all. It was late and I was drinking the hare of the dog that was gonna bite me as a preventive and the words in the dictionary were blurry. whistle

Blasphemies, wofahulicodoc. I can't pull up Sammy.
I got mad and dropped the Adobe Reader and now I can't get them back. Sometimes methinks I doth protest too much.
No matter, I have another computer and I'll see Sammy tomorrow. grin

The pool shark, exceedingly pompous,
Could, at eight-ball, predictably, tromp us;
But last night at the poolroom
He suffered a cruel doom:
All his magic shots went catawampus.
