...a flat stomach." But, then again, I used to hold that the earth was flat, and was proven wrong when I tried to drive to the edge, only to find it to be a corner rounded off by water. Of course I was swimming by then, and just as I was approaching the corner, a smell, like corned beef hash, but spicier and fouler, assaulted my olfactory. At that moment I was uncontrollably sucked down into a vortice, only to find...

Haggis, it's a damnable curse I tell you, a curse!! Always remembereing what people ordered, what I wanted to pick up at the store, what my mom said in 1974 to traumatize me, what was happening the last time my bird pooped on my shoulder, and the lyrics to those Monty Python and Frank Zappa songs! Can't....get them....out....of my......head. Oh...no...here it comes again! "Hey there, people I'm Bobby Brown, they say I'm the cutest boy in town. My car is fast, my teeth are shiny, I tell all the girls they can kiss my hiny...." ARGHGHGH!

"Foul" the referee calls. "Shapely, invoking "THE BARD in a manner that might attract unwanted comparison between him and Dr. Johnson." “5 yard penalty"

Ed. Oh, I forgot to mention I make up and change rules frequently, I'm just WAITING for Selma to violation one I haven't thought of yet.

Her penalty will involve the three panel judges of the Ninth Circuit, a rubber Annette Funicello Mickey Mouse suit (© Walt Disney), Ice tea, and a large German shepardess named Olga…..uhhh I got carried away, strike Olga, she’s actually one of my “penalties”…wrong thread

Rudder action:

...take the elevator up to the CV-65/NCC-1701 morphodite ship and get Izzy's stash bag out of the air conditioning duct before the melted gelato ruined it. The well digger replied that he would go as soon as he finished his lunch of haggis, 'neeps & tatties(love them green tatties!), which would then put him yet another week behind schedule. At this point, the vortice became a waterspout, and I was shot up out of the water like...

sands through the hourglass, but such are the days of our lives.

Meanwhile, the Queen had begun her song of Revenge. The Hebrew slaves picked up their anvils and joined in chorus. The tenor, sensing that the queen was really a soprano in disguise, shouted "Leave no thread unhijacked!". He leapt from topic to topic in his vain search for Lula.

Lula, meanwhile was hiding behind the lawyers office. Bottom, the well diggers donkey, had devoured all of the hay in the courtyard, and had taken an interest in her grass skirt. "Help!" she cried, "This donkey's exposed my..." but her shouts were lost in the din O'Ben, or was it the den of Odin? Whichever, it was darned noisy.

"If I can get enough of these threads tied together, I'll lasso that darned asteroid" shouted Shapley from the Big Country, whose soundtrack he had only recently discovered. But it was to no avail, Bottom had already started to devour....

...stash-nabbing low-bidder IT techs-by-definition who escaped from the nearly-dug well (despite the GC's dilatory inattention to the unfinished state of the project and the witch's increasing state of fury) attacked the forward viewscreen despite the mauve paint layer, and fled through the hidden transporter link to the unhallowed halls of the Unseleigh Sidhe.

Bottom, in the lower courtyard of the castle, having tracked Lula to the lawyer's secret bookshelves with the wormhole to the Norwegian glacier, fell into the discontinuity, froze his rear end during the transition, and arrived long after Lula had negotiated the exchange of her mutilated grass skirt for a genuine Bali batik mini-sarong made by an obliging quilting heldentenor (who had long admired Lula for her many fine attributes and extensive travels).

The mutilated grass skirt and the frozen donkey-tail were donated...

Meanwhile, the pearl fishers went about weaving the mutilated grass skirt and frozen donkey tail into third socks, as their nets were hopelessly beyond repair. They then turned to their leader, Henry Rhenals, who told them...

[..that they overlooked the Pearl fisher warden checking for their pearl fishing license,

Lula, unfortunately, was fined because her license had expired and it was only for “before swine” fresh water pearls, not the more expensive and harder to find pearls that can ONLY be found in..

...fine jewelry stores such as those found on Roe-Day-Oh Drive. The finest specimens, of course, come from "The Pearly Gates", the finest store in this sector of the galaxy. Conveniently located right next door to "Harry's Pub", where Lula and the tenor were seen sipping Irish coffee over a fresh order of haggis.

Jim entered the pub, unnoticed by the patrons therein. This was a defining moment in his life. Four years he had laboured in Law School, to get to this point. "The only way you'll get into the Bar is to finish Law School." They had told him. Imagine his disappointment to find the place filled with patrons who had not completed one semester. "Have I been deceived?" He asked himself.

Among the patrons was Izzy the Stoner. Izzy had been watching Lula and the tenor, waiting patiently. Waiting, but for what? Suddenly, he leapt from his stool, and approached the tenor. As soon as she recognized Izzy, Lula...

Haggis, the 9th circuit court of appeals frightens me not. I look forward to a chance to get my pale pink pattypaws on that lot.

It is my intention to force-feed them Twinkies, overcooked cabbage, and cooking sherry and then confine them to the Jerry Springer set. Survivors, if any, will be dropped off naked at the Blue Oyster Bar, at 1:30 AM, any given Saturday night/Sunday morning. Escapees will be skewered with #9 Afghan hooks.

They are a stench in the halls of justice, and an affront to most of California (San Francisco excepted. Maybe SF'll get miffed and seceed. I'll cheer them on...)

Those folks are very unlikely to come anywhere near me, or anyone like me. We inhabit different planets. But if they do, man oh man do I have plans!

Go ahead, ask me what I really think.

Scared, he says. He has me confused with somebody else.


Lemme at the wretches.

Nonsense, jm, it's Haggis' thread and he brung 'em up. Where'd them frickin' fools go, lemme at 'em!

Make a note to yourself, jm. If, at some future time, you find yourself a member of an appeals court, beware of women in bifocals and comfortable shoes bearing Twinkies and afghan hooks.

As soon as she recognized Izzy, Lula...
