There was a young lad named Little Boy Blue,
horn in his hand, to the haystack he flew.
The townsfolk knew his songs were just fluff,
Variations on one theme, it was all just a bluff.
Worn out from his efforts sleep came fast too.

I pick up my rule book and hammer,
Make my way to the linguistic slammer.
As I walk down the hall
I buff up the peen's ball:
I am here to correct me some grammar.

To the boneyard the zombie went in fact,
to check and see if the tomb remain intact.
If not, what that did infer,
was he'd have to re- inter,
His beloved's home,the earth to be repacked.

Pig flies — to new home in NY
FARMINGDALE, N.Y.

A pig flew — from Florida to New York on Pet Airways.

Newsday reports that a miniature potbellied pig named Bosley arrived at Republic Airport on Long Island Thursday to join his new adoptive family in Sag Harbor.

The 49-pound porker is the first pig for the Florida-based Pet Airways, which specializes in flying animals.

Airline cofounder Alysa Binder says it’s “exciting and so fun” that pigs can fly now.

Bosley was originally adopted as a piglet by a Florida family from a local pet shop, but grew too large for his home.

His new family in Sag Harbor prefers to remain anonymous.

Newsday says Bosley appeared content when he deplaned at Republic and didn’t need to wait for his stomach to settle before he started eating.

At the céilidh exceedingly lavish
Sylph-like beauty my senses did ravish.
Chased her into the laurel
With a motive immoral.
To my shock, it was Angus MacTavish.

REACTION - REAMER
