Wasn't that a tv show in the late 50s, "The Protectors." I think it wa about a company that make conundrums.

You know, if
one person, just one person
does it they may think he's really sick and
they won't take him.
And if two people, two people do it, in harmony,
they may think they're both faggots
and they won't take either of them.
And three people do it, three, can you imagine,
three people walking in
singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out.
They may think it's an
organization.
And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,I said
fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and
walking out.
And friends they may thinks it's a movement.

Arlo Guthrie

Am I the only one that doesn't understand? What about princess Wilhelmina? The one of the Netherlands?

Oh, Desi, thank you, thank you. And I thought I was the only one who didn't understand. The only thing that came through with any clarity was the quote from "Alice's Restaurant"--glad you posted that, Johnny; it has always been one of my favorites.

Sorry, I was responding to Johnny's Churchill post with a similar one from the movie Galaxy Quest. (If you haven't seen it, it's a spoof of Star Trek)

It's clearer on threaded view.

So, you don't know what the first post is about either?

Don't let that stop you from posting a comment. I never let it stop me.

Not a clue! Like Marian-NYC, I will happily add to the confusion, though.

.... Right. Why is it every time I try to find something very witty answer my mind goes completely blank?

Couldn't even find poetry by Wilhelmina.

Perhaps that's the reason why some poems of the past are hard to analyze- Blake, Dickinson, et al were applying to the poetry contests of the day.

I saw echos in the tu-lips.
they sang to my eyes
portayed genius in the ether
gave me a rise

Wilhelmina Hemmingway definitely has some Vogon blood.

Saw the movie yesterday....I liked a lot about it but it lacked the charm of the original

disliked the Guide graphics....originals far far superior in my opinion

Come with me

to the sea
the sea of tears
I wanna tell you
just how much I don't think I particularly care for you wo wo wo wo

this made it to #4587 with a bullet (mercifully)
