Honey, at my cremation I'll oddly sit up unless the tendons are cut, so to avoid that horror there, go order one good tool with hewer blade!

Larry Brash with:
The mad loopy guru and the autocratic moody Tsarina who were red hot lovers; odd losers shot in the Rebellion, to die, only not together.

Dharam Khalsa with:
Honey, I truly trust the astrologer, and not the doctor (or attorney!), to do good. Besides, Lover, the hemophiliac does well when I am around.

"Ra.. Ra.. Rasputin"
Ooh! Hello! So, Boney M wrote this really odd, over-rated, idiotic song to the most hugely loathed, wretched tune to drone on.

1st - Tony Crafter with:
The board of a very large international company, feeling it was time for a streamlining exercise, hired a new Chief Executive Officer, John Whyatt. The new boss was hell-bent on ridding the company of all its slackers.

On a tour of the facilities, he noticed a young man lounging against a wall. The room was full of workers and Whyatt wanted them to realise that he meant business. So, he asked the man: “Hey, you; what is your salary, exactly?”

A little surprised, the young man replied warily: “My salary's about four hundred pounds a week. Why?”

The CEO said, “Just you wait right there, whippersnapper.”

He swaggered away to his office, came back 4-5 minutes later, gave the man sixteen-hundred pounds in cash and said, “Here’s four weeks’ pay. Now get the hell out and never come back.”

Feeling pretty pleased with himself, Whyatt looked around the room and snarled, “Right now; does anyone want to tell me just what that idle yob did here?”

From across the room, a voice replied, “Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.”


A female CNN journalist heard about a devout old Jewish man who'd been commuting to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long time and she decided she must seize the chance to check him out.

Next day, she went out to the Western Wall and there he was, shuffling slowly, using a walking-stick, up to the holy site.

She looked on as he prayed and after about 45 minutes, when he'd turned to leave, she approached him for an interview.

"Pardon me, sir, I'm Rebecca Stein from CNN. What's your name?

"Morris Feinstein," he replied.

"How long have you been coming out here to pray at the Western Wall?"

"Ages! About, um... sixty years."

"Sixty years! Gee, that is amazing! And what do you pray for?"

"Me? Heck, I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims.

"I pray for all the wars and all the hatred to cease.

"I pray for our children to grow up safely as responsible, dignified adults, and to love their fellow man."

"Okay, and how do you feel after doing this for sixty years?"

"Like I'm talking to a frigging wall."

2nd - Dharam Khalsa with:
Martin was on his death bed. His family called a Preacher to be with him in his final moments. As the Preacher stood by the bed, Martin's condition seemed to deteriorate, and Martin motioned for someone to pass him a pen and paper. The Preacher quickly received a pen and paper and lovingly handed it to Martin. But before he had a chance to read the note, Martin died. The Preacher, feeling that now wasn't the right time to read the note, put it into his jacket pocket.

It was at the funeral while speaking that the Preacher suddenly remembered the note. Reaching deep into his pocket the Preacher said "Do you know what? I suddenly remembered that right before Martin passed on he handed me a note. Knowing Martin, I'm sure it was something wonderful that we can all gain inspiration from." With that introduction, the Preacher pulled out the note and opened it, revealing the following: "Hey, you are standing on my oxygen tube!"
The Illinois man left his Chicago habitat in the winter to embark on a plane flight to sunny Miami. The man's wife Betty was on a business trip and had planned to meet him there the next morning.

When he reached the hotel, he decided to send her a quick update. But he missed an alphabet letter by accident when typing in her email address, making the note intended for Betty get directed to Edwina, an elderly Preacher's wife at a Manhattan apartment, whose husband had died only the day before.

When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the computer monitor, let out a pained scream, and dropped to the floor in a dead faint. At the inappropriate thump sound, the Preacher's relation raced into the room, gasping at the email that remained up on the monitor screen: "My Dearest Wife, Just got checked in. Everything prepared in the anticipation of your arrival tomorrow morning. P.S. Sure is hot down here!"

3rd - nedesto with:
This sloth named David is creeping through the forest one day when this gang of snails approaches him, beating him up very severely.

The sloth is left at the bottom of a tree and is beaten and bleeding with several cuts and bruises all over.

It's several hours later and the sloth somehow gathers up enough strength to go limping into the local police station. He stumbles into the sergeant's office.

"My word! Whatever in the world happened to you?!" says the officer.

"A bunch of really mean snails beat me up," David replies sobbing.

"Well, can you describe who did this to you ?" the sergeant asks.

"I don't know," the sloth says. "It all happened so fast."


An old vampire bat dripping with blood flies home to get some rest. The other bats smell the succulent blood dripping and ask where he got it.

"Let me sleep, darn it!", he tells them, but nevertheless they annoyingly insist until he gives in.

"Oh, fine then... follow me" he says cursing, and goes off with the other vampire bats flapping behind him in a cloud.

Out of the cave's passageway he leads them, swooping down through the valley and far across a river and into a woods, finally coasting to a stop.

"This is the place. Now, do you see that tree branch over there?" he asks.

"Yes!" the bats all shout in a restless furor.

"Good" says the bat, "Because I sure didn't!"

In 1944 Max Planck, the father of quantum physics, gave a revolutionary speech where he said that “matter as such does not exist”, but rather an energy field, a quantum space of matter and that “reality” is moulded and modified by the observer’s consciousness


Eight huntsmen carved a square piece of lumber. A board tattoo, fundamentally physical. Yet it's nonexistent, said the famed mid-century physicist whose name itself reconstructs said board. A thought: quark, herd, a mauve feather, ox, rasp...have oneness.

Rosie Perera with:
"You know, it's hard to know just how well it will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting, the stories about the private security firm not having enough people, supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials, that obviously is not something which is encouraging. Because there are three parts that makes Games successful. Number one, of course, are the athletes. That's what overwhelmingly the Games are about. Number two are the volunteers. And they'll have great volunteers here. But number three are the people of the country. Do they come together and celebrate the Olympic moment? And that's something which we only find out once the Games actually begin."


(We retweet actual speech.) Mitt Romney ticks off the Brits in a stunning move of idiocy. The bugger thinks his tumultuous leadership of the SLC Utah Olympics gives him the right to criticise how London is handling things. What a moron, worse than Bush. We the people weep at the outcome. If he becomes President, Cameron has every right to not invite him back to England after that insult, an uncultured jab to a great, glamorous country. The message of the day was that wherever Romney goes, whomever he sees, he will be an untrustworthy perturber. Better not elect the ungenteel maneuverer, a glossy toothsome teetotaler, a gauche bureaucrat who has the face (um, personality) of a Ken doll.

Dharam Khalsa with:
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all.

Two of the scruffiest slobs ever, Zeke and Steve, were in the park flipping in a dictionary when they both started to laugh. They teased rudely and started to make a disciplinable scene. Beside them, a colorless old woman was upset at the men. Afflicted, she approached them in a hobble. "Come now," she gummed "just what do you two queer imbeciles think is funny?". Steve, only as dimmish as ever, pointed to a word on the page. The feeble woman read it and was confused. "Esoteric?" she asked, "In any case, what's that and how's it funny?". Zeke replied, "Wench, it's an inside joke and you wouldn't understand!"


A desperate man ran into the police station begging fervently for help. Officer Sade in sympathy talked him down and asked him the usual questions. "Please calm down and just tell me what happened." Sade said. "Yes, well I own the restaurant down the road, and I've been robbed!" the chef grunted. "A sad issue!" Sade continued "Ok sir, what was stolen?" "All my pastries officer!" he winced "But no money!" Puzzled, Sade asked "No way, pastries? Wow! Anyway, could you describe the thief to me?" "No," the chef vented "no I don't remember his face, but I'd know this, when it comes to thieves this one just takes the cake!"

[Shakespeare's star-themed sonnet anagrammed into a poetic model of the solar system, which is also illustruated.]

Sonnet Number Fourteen
Written by William Shakespeare

Not from the stars do I my judgement pluck;
And yet methinks I have Astronomy,
But not to tell of good or evil luck,
Of plagues, of dearths, or seasons' quality;
Nor can I fortune to brief minutes tell,
Pointing to each his thunder, rain and wind,
Or say with princes if it shall go well
By oft predict that I in heaven find:
But from thine eyes my knowledge I derive,
And, constant stars, in them I read such art
As truth and beauty shall together thrive,
If from thyself, to store thou wouldst convert;
Or else of thee this I prognosticate:
Thy end is truth's and beauty's doom and date.


That fervent orb,
It lit the day -
It is the source
Of morning rays.


The messenger
That tailed the sun
Obeyed her call -
Her will be done.


That cuter nymph
Of lust and love
Intends to flirt
And wink above.


A shoddy rock
And home to Man -
The cryptic twist
To God's old plan.


The crimson star
Unfit for life,
For it will be
A risky strife.


The most divine
Of Roman Lords,
It weighs a lot -
Too large for words.


The Lord of Time,
Of Then and Soon,
It is confined
By many moons.


It ruled the sky
As Gaia's son,
Yet now it is
The butt of puns.


The planet dyed
A quiet blue;
The Ocean King
Gave it that hue.

Embarks that night near kids.

Tony Crafter with:

Out in Barns Green down in Horsham, West Sussex,
I had a duel with one ornery gent,
He was the cruel, one 'n' only El Puso
I came intent on a fight to the end.

There in an inn full of hillbilly yokels,
The ale looked like gnat's pee 'n' tasted the same
I arrived early to check on the venue,
Armed, set to kill, in this 'High Noon' endgame.

All of a sudden the door opened wide,
Someone came in from the night,
It was El Puso
Arriving with gusto,
The glint in his eye
Was a knife in my heart.

So I rose from my

Chair and I challenged him: "Show what you've got man,"
Down flew his hand, moving fast as a fox,
Before I knew it he delved in his bum-bag,
Drew out, like lighting... an old Scrabble box.

Just for one moment the whole room fell silent,
All I could hear was the beat of my heart,
Many words flew through my mind as I stood there,
I chose only two and I said them: "Let's start."

Before I knew it a table was cleared,
We both got chairs and sat down,
From my bag I took
My old Scrabble Wordbook,
He snarled, "Best of one."
My reply was a frown.

Then we each chose our

Tiles from the tile-bag, set them on tile-racks,
I looked at them once and got set to attack.

He tossed a coin in the air, and I cried "Tails!"
It came down heads and he sniggered, "First blood,"
He laid his tiles and he made 'FOXED' (for forty)
All I could make with my letters was 'MUD',

As we continued the game got more mean,
Puso played out of his skin,
I was still laggin' 'n'
My brain was flaggin'
While he laid words such as

Then at last I

Withdrew from the tile-bag the letter I longed for,
(Suffice to say, it's the one after 'P')
This only briefly revived my ill-fortune,
I also pulled out five 'I's and a 'V'.

A crowd had gathered, I heard someone giggling,
Puso was now fifty-five (55) points in front,
I notched sixty-four off a great double-triple,
I took the lead, and I heard Puso grunt.

He tagged an 'S' onto 'CIVIC' and made
'CIVICS' to score thirty-two,
Though I kept smilin'
Inside I was rilin',
I now held four 'I's,
Two 'O's and a 'U'.

So in anger I

Voiced my annoyance, changed my f***ing letters,
Effing 'n' blinding so uncivilly,
Then, all in a moment of insanity,
Next thing, he'd finished and beat me by three!

From out of nowhere El Puso has won it,
Funny how fortune can dive in that way
I said, "You've got me, and I have to pay," he said
"Buy me a lager," so I said,



Down in the West Kentish village of Knockholt,
I left my house and I went to the gate,
Threw on my poncho, adjusted my Stetson,
Lit a cheroot then set off to my fate.

The mist in the field hung like some ghostly blanket,
As I climbed a stile and walked into the night.
The village's inn was my end destination,
(Where Stella Artois is four-fifty a pint).

There I'd confront my foe from Barns Green,
The one called 'El Puso' (the swine),
Ruthless 'n' dashin'
A Scrabble assassin,
I'd lured him to Knockholt
Revenge will be mine!

As I came to

The end of the meadow I looked through a bush, to
The village inn car park on the other side,
Two minutes later I heard a low hum, as
Puso arrived in his Sinclair C5.

After he'd tied the car onto a gatepost,
He jumped out and he swaggered up to the inn,
Under his arm was his worn Scrabble box, so
I waited until I saw him go right in.

I whistled my way to the front of the inn,
(The 'Fistful Of Dollars' film theme),
For long I had planned
An entrance so grand,
So I kicked the door wide and
Stood there... looking mean.

As I chewed on

My cheroot, I heard someone growl, "Oi, you old twat!
"No smoking in here, and remove the gross hat!"

After I'd done as the voice had instructed,
I looked around for my sworn enemy,
Puso sat, nursing a nice mug of Stella,
He said, "Loving the outfit - you ready, TC?"

I got a Stella and off we did go,
Laying our tiles as before,
But he did not know
That under my poncho,
Was concealed a rogue 'X' to augment my score.

Then halfway in

The game I was trailing by fifty-five points but
I didn't care, I'd an ace up my sleeve;
I still held an 'X' hiding under my poncho,
If laid at a good time a win I'd achieve.

At last my chance came! I gratefully grabbed it,
Grinning, guffawing, at my enemy,
Laying my tiles one by one on the board...
I made 'XEROXING' to score massively!

I gave a growl and I bellowed, "Well, now!
"Er... one-fifty-one, what a blast!
"A win I have snaffled!"
El Puso looked baffled,
I swallowed my booze and I said, "Kiss my arse!"

"E... R... O. I...? Hey!

Hold on!" he bellowed, "there's two f***ing 'X's!"
Then, growling, he grabbed a big handful of tiles,
Venting his fury, he slung them at me,
I got hit on my nose with an 'O' 'n' two 'V's.

I heard the barman cry, "F*** off you asses!"
As Puso and I were thrown onto the drive;
I said, "I'm off now while I'm still alive,"
He said, "Ok" and left in his Sinclair C5.
