Bad Pun Time

Are the birds that are most into heavy metal the goldfinches?
 
Mullah Omar Found?

The web's being temperamental today, so there's no link. But the jist of it is the former Taliban head has been spotted near Quetta! Maybe.

"The Man Who Came From Myst"

As sung by Saavedro
To the tune of "Soak up the Sun" by Cheryl Crow

The man who came from Myst
Hired me to teach his two sons
But they became evil
Alas; my homeland of Narayan

Trapped me on J'nanin
Took all my people had
They weren't bad 'cause I was mean
I'm mean 'cause they were bad

So
The relISan are done
With life when Aitrus comes to get the book
I'm
Gonna show him his sons
They ruined Narayan; he should come look
The relISan are done.

He clearly thinks I'm junk
He did not come to aid
He's aware that his sons
Blocked off many an Age

He does not say
Where his sons are
I guess he tired
Of Achenar
And of Sirrus
I'd understand
But I think he
Of Narayan
Decided u-
tility through
And to fate left
Us woes to rue
Maybe if he
Only knew

So
The relISan are done
With life when Aitrus comes to get the book
I'm
Gonna show him his sons
They ruined Narayan; he should come look
The relISan are done.
 
Bad Pun Time

Given how our society is stretching Christmas through before Halloween, Thanksgiving's likely to one of these years end up as quite a turkey.

Okay, I know that one was for the birds…

Bad pun time

Is a Myst rodent's accordion a squee's box?
 
The California Loon

The California loon, Gavia californiana, is found worldwide, but clustered around college campuses and newspaper headquarters, although scattered all around.

Voice: "Kumbaya" song and whiny callnotes.

Behavior: Takes up morally repulsive causes. Supports Socialists and the Palestinians but would die out if they won. Often try to brainwash people into California loons.

Breeding notes: They reproduce by brainwashing.

Population: Abundant in Europe, Canada, and the US Pacific coast. Fairly common to common elsewhere.

Conservation: Not of special concern, although their brains are often cuckoo hosts.

And Palestinian child abuse agehn

Yikes.
 
"Hammer-Wielding Narayani"

To the tune of "Flying Purple People-Eater" I have no idea who by

Well I heard him link in and around I turned
And he lit the curtains; he made them burn.
He stole relISan and he linked away
I was the only person who could save the day.

He was a
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Threatened the D'nI

Well, into a j'nanin Book this fellow went
Aitrus had to douse the flames fo I was sent.
He ran into a building and he locked the door.
I found his journal at the bottom floor.

He was a
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Threatened the D'nI

So I looked for the symbols that would open the way
To the Age whither he had linked away.
In each Age an imager he had
Where he railed at Sirrus and Achenar's dad

He was a
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Threatened the D'nI

Well I found the symbols and linked to Narayan
And before Saavedro knew it, outer shield was down
And I locked him in so to get the Book
And then I lowered the shield and he his leaving took.

He was a
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Wild-eyed, wild-haired, hammer-wielding Narayani
Threatened the D'nI

Well he went on his way; with a wave he did go
Reunited with his homeland was Saavedro
I returned to tomana with the Korman in hand
And so I went into a foreign land.
 
Dhimmicrat hypocrisy

Clickie.

And these are the people who are filibusting Bush's candidates for the bench!

"Little Orange Tram"

To the tune of "Little White Duck"

There's a little orange tram
In Selenitic's caves
Little orange tram
Makes people rant and rave
It renders people a-steaming mad
Trying to find who's good and who's bad
There's a little orange tram
In Selentic's caves
Clank, dink, plunk!

There's a little black grid
In the great dome's cleft-way
Little black grid
Makes people rant and rave
Trying to trap Gehn Junior so bad
But what a hard time people've had
There's a little black grid
in the great dome's cleft-way
Thud, click, rats!

There's some little gray valves
In Voltaic's cave
Little gray valves
Make people rant and rave
Trying to stop Saavedro so bad
But the steam's coming from their head
There's some little gray valves
In Voltaic's cave
Squeak, poof, hiss!
 
Matrix Revolutions review

WOHBANOBONGU!

Are you sure that they didn't have a stuntWhill named Yoda?

But seriously, the action scenes RULE! The battle in the dock was engaging, as was Neo's last battle with Smitty(too bad Neo had to die for Smith to be deleted). 3d-fighting, wow!

As an aside, here's Lileks' review.

Bad Pun Time

A guy had a valise full of European and American robins, nightingales, veerys, bluethroats, and bluebirds. He wound up in the doctor's office; he had quite a case of thrush.

Okay, I know that one was for the birds.
 
Palis peeved that the US wants info on Attack

Clickie. JPost; registration required.

Methinks the PA has something to hide, and terrorists whose backsides they want to cover.

"Just Grab a Linking Book"

My latest MREDU parody.

To the tune of "Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus

You can read your books, yeah you can take a look
And you can stay planted in your chair
Or you can read an Age and right there on a page
You will get a picture moving there
And if you touch the pic then extremely quick
You'll be teleported far away
Perhaps a desert Age or maybe that there page
Will take you to the rebel age of tE

Just use a Book
Just grab a Linking Book
To Two Three Three or teleDan
Or maybe Channelwood
I think that would be good
Or maybe Rime or Narayan.
Ooh!

Or Amateria or KaDiS tolesa
Or maybe Selenitic Age
Or eDanna is neat, and there you will find squees
And grossameries coded on the page
Or to eDer Kemo you sure are free to go
Or maybe on Stoneship you can stay
Voltaic, j'nanin, Mechanical is keen
Please come walk in the D'nI Writers' way

Just use a Book
Just grab a Linking Book
To Two Three Three or teleDan
Or maybe Channelwood
I think that would be good
Or maybe Rime or Narayan.
Ooh!

*musical interlude*

Just use a Book
Just grab a Linking Book
To Two Three Three or teleDan
Or maybe Channelwood
I think that would be good
Or maybe Rime or Narayan.
Ooh!

Just use a Book
Just grab a Linking Book
To Two Three Three or teleDan
Or maybe Channelwood
I think that would be good
Or Rime or Narayan.
Ooh!
