  • In 2030 Harry"s daughter was diagnosed with a huge tumour that made her look seven months pregnant. She found herself catapulted back in time to the 1930's. During this journey she

  • thought to herself 'My God, life has certainly taken a turn towards oddity lately.' Harrieta was smackdab in the middle of the Great Depression, and if that weren't pickle enough

  • Her best friends were Lenny & George. Lenny liked to stroke Harrieta's mink stole & pulled the head off by accident. "I didn't mean no harm" said Lenny. George saw his opportunity

  • So he began to tickle Lenny and while he was the police came and put George in handcuffs for abusing Lenny George became sadden because now he will.

  • He had to stop there. The thought of was too much for his fragile psyche. The police hauled him in. He was both Lenny and George from Of Mice and Men trapped in one body

  • that was not fit for the task.Lenny and George were getting tired of reliving the play every night and to play both caracters from the same two-brained body was a challenge.Of Mice

  • , Mice and Mice was the title - and regrettably, the content was no more inspired. Not only were all the caracters (sic) monosyllabic nonentities, but most of them were also sick,

  • It began, 'Moe and Midge, mice, may have the flu. "Let us fly!' said Moe. "Let us flee." said Midge. So they fleed and they flied from the flu.' Children's books were dumbing down.

  • Yeah, they sure don't write children's books like they used to (sigh). Not like the old Dr. Suess books. We could hop on pop, eat green eggs & ham, & wear 500 hats with no problem.

  • When it came to buying war bonds today, Theodor Geisel was no stranger to "slap a jap". I wonder if "hypocrisy" was among the thinks he could think. Wave to the sneeches for me.

    It's unavailable where formatting causes carriage returns, but it's common enough knowledge--especially if I'm only getting around to it now.
