And in these Cursory Times at least Nursery Rhymes

One more from my late dinner-guest: I.Emma Lazarus:


Ba Ba Black Sheep, have you any wool?
“Yup, take a look here: half-a-bag full.”

“Half for the government, half for the rent
Half for the kids till the money’s all spent

I am Baba Black Sheep looking at my wool
It’s the best you can do if ya got no strings to pull.” 

Duh, Baba Black Sheep, sumpthin happen to yer brain?
The bag’s half emp-ty, hope it doesn’t rain

Nothing for retirement, nada for your wife
Forget about yer health, ‘n hope to have-a short life

Yeah, Bubba Black-Sheep, If-you only had a brain.
Pull the wool out of your eyes; you are gurgling down the drain.

    Barber, barber, shave a pig!How many hairs to make a wig?Four and twenty, that’s enough!Give the barber a pinch of snuff.Really?The customer must have a tiny head,Or the pig has really fat hairs.

    @we_deny_everything – Of course:Porky the BarberShaves pigs at the HarbourIn fact, he shaves all-of-’em but one.Who shaves by himselfWith-a mirror on the shelfNot sure how this miracle is done.Quine cannot assert that the barber is a pig.Until he makes that last payment on his mortgage, at least.
