Maybe he should have then swallowed a spider, that wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside him.

But no. That's a road that can only lead to ruin...

But wouldn't he have had to swallow a "spi-dim"? (I guess a not-very-bright spider?)

Okay, okay/
I'll go back to my curds-and-whey

The greatest thing on TV today was footage of President Obama looking very serious as he was being interviewed by reporters and suddenly he spots a fly and it bothers him and he swats it and slams it dead on the first try, talking all the while. Very impressive.

And he can shoot the three! You probably already know about James "Fly" Williams, a New York streetball legend who went to Austin Peay (pronounced "pee") Univ. in Tennessee in the early 70's; he averaged almost 30 pts a game in his freshman year in 1973. The student body had a cheer when he got the ball: "Fly is open--LET'S GO PEAY!" Beat that, Dukies.

OK Jim - is that a true story??? (Let's go Peay?)I think you've been holding back on some of these great stories you have to tell.

Troot, I sweah ta gawd!

I love this Jim.

I'm glad you do; I love that CW gave us this glimpse of Don.

Oh, boy - are we going to roar in September or what?!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
