Grrrrr I woke up too early and couldn't go back to sleep but I need to stay awake now because I have to go with my Mom to see the optician because she lost her glasses and the concentrated efforts of the staff couldn't find them.

So, it's Wednesday. Is Wednesday special? It's a day, I guess. It's trash day here. I'll throw some trash out * $$$ # ^@@~ No, wait, I may need a couple of those later. I'll pick it up and put it in a proper bag [* $$#~] There, I don't need a lot of dollar signs, rarely have use for asterisks or carets and who uses a tilde?

KING BRUCE, by Graeme King

Ferrets are such fun - I brought one home the other day,
his name was Bruce, the bloke had said to line his box with hay,
a daily meal of mince meat and a lettuce leaf at night,
he guaranteed he'd be a pet and never, ever bite.

The wife was rather dubious, she vowed she'd call him Rat,
I told her Bruce was Bruce - and now we didn't need a cat,
poor Tiddles tried to muscle in on Bruce's bowl of mince,
a flash of teeth - a feline shriek - we haven't seen her since!

I built a little castle from a doll house I had found,
with turrets and a drawbridge and a painted moat around,
"King Bruce the Goose" I called him, as we settled into life,
he tried his best, but never won affection from the wife.

Still, me and Bruce were happy and the days went swimmingly,
until the night the Vicar and his wife came round for tea,
I locked Bruce in the closet as I heard the doorbell ring,
they wouldn't understand a little ferret called Bruce King.

The meal was quite a treat and then the wife served chocolate mousse,
but then my ankle felt some feet - my God! It must be Bruce!
He'd learned a little trick or two: to sit up straight and beg,
and how to scamper on my shoe and up my trouser leg!

The Vicar's wife was on about her recipes for sauce,
His Reverence sat nodding, he was half asleep, of course,
I knew that Bruce was up my leg, but didn't worry none,
I would have - had I realized my zipper was undone!

I stood up to refresh the drinks, his wife let out a scream,
she stared at me - I stood there pouring Bailey's Irish Cream,
then dropped my eyes down to my crotch - and nearly fell down dead,
protruding from my open fly was Bruce's smiling head!

I care not for the crystal glasses shattered on the floor,
or how the Vicar and his wife ran out and slammed the door,
but Bruce looked up at me, a ferret twinkle in his eye,
as if to ask the question: "What the dickens...no goodbye?"

I'm excommunicated now, I've joined a Buddhist cult,
divorced and single, what a diabolical result,
we should have had that dinner over at the Vicar's manse,
coz churches don't have ferrets poking out of people's pants!!!

That's funny, CW. I thought Friday was ferret day, though. Was that just a teaser?

Actually, I may keep the tilde. I use it to mark a playlist I want at the top of the column.

I went to a concert once and while standing in line waiting to get in I talked with some people from Waveland, MS. After Katrina they were back surveying damage and the lady's husband looked down and said, "Look, a drowned rat". The lady looked down and said, "It's not dead and I think that's a ferret." So they got a pet ferret.

Friday = Filk Day. We really need another day of the week that starts with F cause I like alliteration. Here's a summary:

Monday = black holes
Tuesday = pirate talk (although today is actual the 'official' Talk Like a Pirate Day nationwide)
Wednesday = Ferrets
Thursday = elves, dragons, gnomes, bard talk
Friday = Filk Day
Saturday/Sunday = surprise topic days

Joyce,
Regardless, you looked really nice. Very classy...and it was nice to put a face with the name at last. ;-)

Wasn't it Ferret day today, Joyce...as for trash day...only once a week? Yikes.

Did you hear about the piercing specialist who had a "thing" for pirates?

She would do it for a buck an ear!

And now, Archer's recycled ferret filk:

Ooooooooohhhh,
I used to harbor ferrets when my brain was more naive,
They'd play and poop in corners and they'd chew upon my sleeve,
but when I got some common sense I realized the fuss
involved in keeping mammals of the genus Mustel-us!

Their dietary habits would render them so smelly,
to stand before their lethal breath would turn your legs to jelly.
They'd dine on rancid fish and loads of other poop-du-jour,
and when you stood downwind of them they smelled just like a sewer!

Ooooooohhhhhhhhhh,
Poopergagaferretasticextrahalito-sus
Eating rotten fish will make your breathing quite atrocious!
What comes out the other end is simply hid-e-o-sus!
Poopergagaferretasticextrahali-to-sus!

Well thank you. Now I have that in my head, darn it.

All part of my evil ferret plan, eh!

You're mean. I suffer greatly from earworms. :-(

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 19, 2012 1:31:58 PM PDT
Me, too, Samaya, me too. Earworms are the pits.

I'll have to find my old ferret filks and recycle them until my head can write again. After the two previous examples it would take one of my really good ones to equal them.

Ferrets! I think I'll send the Chaos after them. :-)

What about them? Did you see one. Where? What's it doing? It's not crawling to unspeakable places, is it?

Hi Tanner.

You learn something new everyday on the internet. Adobe is brick in spanish they got the word from the arabs who got it from ancient egypt. Adobe is the word for brick in Demotic, the cursive common form of egyptian. There is a new online dictionary if you're interested.

I don't have to say ferret again if I already told a ferret story, do I? Oh nevermind, I did anyway, didn't I.
