Questions in Engrish:

1) Has your father the cheerfulness which is known you?

And then some! He has also the many sarcasms! Many ass remarks of wisdom hath my father's house!

2) It is many the dog and the cat it spreads out how, it has?

Under no circumstances should the dog and the cat be spreading out for each other. No.

3) How many licks it adopts obtains to the tootsie popular music center?

Didn't Jules Verne already write a book about this?

4) Which thing fairies for one life?

That Hubris, I think that Hubris might have been a fairy for one life once. I can't prove it, but how else are we going to explalin the whole Roadhouse thing?

5) The some box the grass spread out and for it left?

Many some box spread out grass and left, yes. So, so many.


Your turn. Pay attention and follow instructions:

1. Delete the first question listed above.

2. Bump the remaining four questions up one number each (question 2 becomes question 1, question 3 becomes question 2, etc.).

3. Make up your own fifth question. Translate it from English to the foreign language of your choice (I used the babelfish), then take that translation and translate it back to English, whereupon you should discover a perfectly formed question in, yes, ENGRISH.

4. If you got this from me, be a dear and link back to this post. If you got this from me but you hate me, link back to Jim. It makes him happy.

Sorry for the double trackback. Delete one, please. MT really needs to work on that.

It's not so much that I was a fairy, it's that I'm in touch with my inner fairy. I mean feminine side. I mean yang.

Now all this introspection is making me feel conflicted--I should probably go bake something.

Okay, I didn't bake; instead, I touched up the carpet with my Bissell Little Green Proheat Turbobrush.

While I was doing it, I was thinking--who wouldn't want to fly? And if I got one of these, I could make the costume myself!

Delete one, please.

Oh Rob, honestly? I don't care. You can send me a half-a-dozen trackbacks. It's all good. Deleting one would require me to make an effort, and you know how I am about that.

YAY! ILYKA'S BACK! We were more than happy to cover for you, are you all caught up with your email? I'm sure you were flooded? Have you joined the yahoo group? Email me if you need a quick summary of what went on while you were gone at thebandwagon@gmail.com...but it'll come at a price (hint: go to Ellis Island...)...hehe
