"When a love relationship is at its height there is no room
left for any interest in the environment; a pair of lovers
are sufficient to themselves."
1. Resist the urge to steal...time from a friend
2. All that is usually required... is mild enthusiasm.
3. Civility is cheap at...half the price.
4. If you are a mountain climber...why are
you wasting your time on mole hills.
5. I believe in lost causes like...losing an argument with my wife.
6. A bad hair day in a wig factory...is a really
7. Of course you don't need a nose job...it still
works doesn't it?
8. One must have enough pessimism...to
recognize a brick wall before running
head first into it.
9. Left to himself a saint... will be left to himself.
10. You've lost it if you have forgotten...where
you put your memorabilia.
I drive a 1950 Hudson; I pay my bills;
I live no frills; still I can't get
ahead; my ink runneth red; my belt I
can no longer tighten; my burden I can
no longer tighten; Lord, before I get all dottery;
let me win the lottery!
HEDLEY VON BODINE, III

when a low-cost carrier, Sky Blue Airlines, agreed

THE WORST OF
The World's Worst Living Poet.
There was a mobster named Mel,
Who delighted in Zinfadel.
Always too drunk to do evil,
He was declared too medievial,
To use recruiting personnel.
I judged a book by its cover.
And read enough to discover,
That I should have taken a look,
And judged the cover by its book.
Sometimes, I think, alas,
I'm channeling Ogden Nash.
But, I'm a courser instrument,
Than his refined temperament.
QUICK. MEIN LEDERHOSEN!
Ein, zwei, drei, oompah, boom!
I can out-polka anyone in the room.
When I hear a tuba, I go bonkers,
Whether I'm in Munich or Yonkers.
I raise a stein and hit the floor.
Get up Gertie, swing your pinafore!
There was a young man from York,
Who was thought of as a dork,
Until he became a winner,
When, during a boring dinner,
He discovered the quark.
TATTOO IN MANITOU
There was a girl named Sue,
Who went to get a tattoo,
When she ran out,
She said with a shout,
"He had designs on me!"
The kitten said to the cat'
"Why is this one lower than that?"
Cat said, "That's your brother Tat's"
"He is large, heavy and fat!"
"Oh, I see. That's the tit for tat!
A THING OR TWO
A young lady named Irma,
Looked down and began to murmur,
"I don't have a thing .
To show this spring.
I might as well be in Burma.
The award above was awarded to me for being me.
It is my very own award, soon to be coveted; or ignored; or despised. It will be awarded(?) from time to time to anyone I deem worthy for reasons of my own. There are no requirements whatsoever.
