Oh, pigeon shit, pigeon shit, where art thou?
Splattering my thoughts, my butt takes a bow,
Pigeon shit, pigeon shit, dost thou gold
Keep thyself young and from getting old.

The question you have to answer, agent yosimiti, before the Thread disappears under a mountain of guano:
Are you parodying the bird, or, are you parodying the Bard?

Talking of pigeons, does anyone know what, where and how is the esteemed Wock. It's a long, long time since he deposited here. I hope he's just lurking in the branches above waiting for the perfect target to appear.

Unfortunately, Mark, I don't think he is. I've PMed him a on a couple of occasions, but they remained in my outbox. Last time I checked when he last visited the forum, he hadn't been around for ages, I'll check again, when I post this.
Take care
Vic
PS
I've just checked, and it was: Last active:Fri Jul 18, 2014 1:57 am. I'm just hoping he's had a life style change that precludes, literary endeavours and pfffffaphing about with a load of congenital procrastinators on t'internet! :?

Nothing silly about creative literary endeavour, Agent yosimiti, even if it's a silly bit of creative endeavour.

Just a guess, but I suspect El Victorino may have been parading the bard.

Basting...ah...such words are criminal to vegetarians like myself.

I would rather parrot the bard than baste the parrot, if I had any say.

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 24 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

It was probably "feathered" that aggravated him. The other stuff, yeah, about right.
