Third front

"The time has come,"
the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."

(here)

The time has come...

Walrus: ...to talk of other things. Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings. And why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings. Callooh, callay, no work today! We're cabbages and kings! ...

wtf.

If I click on all the links, will it start to make sense?

The Real Shliach said...

Yes.

e said...

Aww come on. I hovered over each one to know approximately what it was about. And if hovering wasn't enough, I clicked on the link and glanced at the page. Do I gotta actually read everything you linked to?

A mad hatter, you are.

Dear Mr. R.S.
A fascinating collection of what I assume are a "few of (your) favorite things!"

I am of course, once again, amazed at how those "slythy toves" at the Disney corporation manage to take a perfectly good piece of literature and without any apparent conscience, gyre and gymble and turn it into something that force any self-respecting mome raths (to) outgrabe." They have done it with "The House at Pooh Corner," "Treasure Island" etc. etc. Why is that purveyors of literature in the US (and I do include movie-makers) persist in rewriting and reworking great literature to make it overly simplistic and puerile? Well I can only applaud your efforts to slay this manxome foe. Unsheath your vorpal blade and lead us to the frabjous day when once again serious intellect will dominate.
Continue to fight the good fight my beamish boy!
Resting by the Tumtum tree,
Leo de Toot
(brillig as always).

e: Hafuch bah v'hafuch bah.

Sara: But at least you understood?

LdT: Well, I'm not sure they're my favorite things, but they're certainly of great interest.

sarabonne said...

Erm, no. 'Fraid not.

e said...

TRS, I think you are being to subtle for us.

The Real Shliach said...

Oh ye of little thinking- Sara, what was your last comment?

sarabonne said...

That you're a mad hatter or that I didn't understand the post?
I mean, I see the reference to Alice in Wonderland...

The Real Shliach said...

Your last comment before this post.

sarabonne said...

Ah, so this is a blog post about writing a new blog post?

The Real Shliach said...

Bingo. And so much more.

sarabonne said...

How very deep.

Yossi said...

Leo the Toot took what I was going to say. :(

The Real Shliach said...

You sleep you weep.

e said...

you snooze you lose.

e said...

you doze, you multiply your woes.

e said...

You slumber? what a bummer.

e said...

you're unalert, you get hurt.

The Real Shliach said...

You're full of beans tonight, eh?

e said...

beans? Is that a metaphor?

The Real Shliach said...

No.

sarabonne said...

hehe

e said...

Are you using "no" in some obscure figurative sense?

The Real Shliach said...

No.

e said...

Then suffer me some enlightenment. Why should I be full of beans?

The Real Shliach said...

It's just a phrase. It means that you're full of energy and expressing it.

e said...

Then apparently "beans" was a metaphor.

The Real Shliach said...

Yes, I suppose.

e said...

AAUUUGGHHHH!!!! you can't say one thing and mean something else.

The Real Shliach said...

Did I?

e said...

do you think before you respond?

The Real Shliach said...

Sometimes.

e said...

go to bed.
