Here's a song that they taught us a school when I was little, very little:
Yankee Doodle came to town
A ridin' on a pony,
They put a feather in his cap and
Called him Macaroni.

I suspect that I may have these words wrong.
I mean, Macaroni?
Isn't that a pasta?
Was Yankee Doodle Italian?

I suspect that this tune is about the American Revolution.
Yankee Doodle must have been a patriot, like Mel Gibson.
So, were all patriots born in Australia?
Gosh, American history is tricky.

Hey, we have a new member called Pastor Bassman.
Welcome! (I just checked the newest member bit)
What a name for a bassist!
Coincidences do happen quite often.
In Wainuiomata, down under, our local postman's name is (this is true) Frank Postman.
I kid you not!
And, this you'll find hard to believe, our local mechanic is Joe Ficksit.
Is Wainuiomata a mirror of the whole world? Is there a guy in Washington who is actually called George Washington?
Well, stranger things happen in Australia.
Australia! What a country!
The closing lines of their national anthem are "Advance Australia fair."
Are they only encouraging Australians with blond hair to step forward.
I don't think that this is what they mean. I think there was a spelling mistake in the song and the Aussie lyricist meant it to be,
"Advance Australia's fare." They expect you to pay something because they're Australians.
Typical.

It is very hot Down Under tonight and Stan & Greg & Ken don't seem to be logged on. If Ken were logged on, he would say something and use the green guy.
Why does Ken always use the green guy?
Sometimes he uses him twice to make a stronger point.

I think Greg likes the curly headed guy.
Notice how similar the curly headed guy and the stupid guy look.
I suspect that the curly headed guy is really just the stupid guy wearing a wig.
This is really a bit cheap!
That means that there are really only 10 original guys.
Even the guy who looks up skirts could pass for the stupid guy.
That leaves only 9 original guys.

Did God invent these guys, or was it a mere computer programmer?
I suspect the latter because God would've been smarter.
He would have thought to have a grey guy or, maybe, a striped guy.

Have you noticed that, when you do a post, it has to contain 12 characters. I feel that this discriminates against Wainuiomata because it only contains 11 letters. Would a full stop count as a character? I'll try to post "WAINUIOMATA."

Sunday down Under 7.12pm
Just back from playing at the Wellington Flaminco Club.
Small crowd, but lovely people.
I did my solo seudo Spanish thing and finished it off with Sally Goodin'.
I know that's not Spanish, but I was tired (long, hard weekend moving daughter and worrying about son) and I can play Sally in my sleep.
The solo was very well received. I feel I'm now bigger than the Beatles!
Did the Beatles play solo double bass?

I'm still excited about the fact that you can use Greg's surname, and nothing else, as a post.

double bass is called contrabbasso in italia. In Wainuiomata they call it a cello.

Watched Bass Day 97 after school today.
Rufus Reid and Michael Moore did a DB duet with arco solos over All Blues. Not bad. Great time, but solos a bit tame. Very accurate playing though.
I met Rufus in the early1980's when he was out here. What a lovely guy!
Very sensitive player.
Yes, their time feel was great, especially Rufus.

Nothing to report from down under.
Hot. Very hot.
I'm going to dig into some serious practice tonight, so you'll have to get along without me.

Ken will probably reply:
"We'll manage "

He likes that green guy. Favours him over the others.
I wonder if the other guys feel unloved?
I wonder if they write stuff on a Corner somewhere?
John's Corner, maybe.
When they something witty, do they use pictures of themselves?

Yellow guy speaking .
"Don't know why I'm smiling, haven't been needed on Ken's Corner for a lifetime! Well, we faces have a life too. We never know when we'll be replaced by 3 dimensional faces that move. Why is no one using me? Is it because I'm yellow?
I hate that bloody green guy! Ken's favourite little face! Most of all I hate his big bloody teeth. Such a smart arse! God, I wish I was green."

Richard, you have 18 posts in a row without a reply.

And 'they' say it's lonely at the 'Top'..lol..

"They" haven't visited the 'Bottom' down under from what I can see..

Ahhh, was there a question here somewhere in the last page or two you needed help with?

Just trying to be a good host.

twelve little dots.
That's all you need to post.
Ken, I need help with understanding the Universe.
Is there a Chinese tea pot orbiting between Mercury and Saturn?
Does the little green guy prove the existence of God?
Is there as much chance as there being a God as there being a Chinese tea pot orbiting between Mercury and Saturn (sorry, I stole this idea)?
Study the little green guy closely and you will percieve a gay between his middle teeth.
Is this a sign from you to us?
Is the Universe found in a gap between the green guy's middle teeth?
When you use the green guy twice , is this some statement about parallel Universes?
Do the twelve dots that I needed to do a post represent twelve parallel Universes?
Is this a sign from someone?
Maybe it's a sign from Brib.
Who is 'Brib', I hear you say?
There is evidence to support that Brib was the original creator of the Universe (and all parallel ones).
He is also known as 'Brib the Modile Staircase', hey, but that's another story...

The story of Brib and the Mobile Staircase.
One sunny afternoon Brib was out walking in the land of the Snof. For those of you who are unfamaliar with the Snof, it is a stretch of land that divides the land of Swornborn from the Feerdodeen Sea.
Brid gazed upon the local sun and felt warmish (it had never been known as a great sun). As he walked, he recited verse from the Uudar. This activity always took his 'Idir' to new heights.
For plentons (local dialect, meaning weeks (approx.)) now Brib had been troubled by dreams of a sudden uprising. The dreams were hazy, but he was always left with a sense, that to us, would be like being on a rocket that was taking off. He came across three Udaie who were dancing and singing a strange song.
"Utawer, Uterwa! Es tongo, es tongo!"
(Look up, look up! This 'thing'! This 'thing!')
Brid stopped and felt quite enchanted by the Udaie.
One Udit noticed his curiosity and began to spangle (a very fast dance that has been used, in recent times, to quickly observe strangers).
Soon the three Udaie were spaglp (plural).
Brib spoke.
"Do not be afraid, for I am the chert (bloke or chap) who controls most things in our Universes. Please, though, do not fear me. I come as a student of the unknown.I seek the Mobile Staircase."
Suddenly Brib's gaze was averted by a very weird sight. He saw people in the costumes of Rweks (clowns) and a bald man in a Weeq (suit).
He sniggled as he realised that the bald man had a ghyrson (comb over)!
He noticed many, many people.
Then he saw it!
In all of his creation he had never even imagined that this could be possible!
"Holy ****!" for a moment he forgot his station as ruler of at least twelve Universes.
"It's an escalator!"

There are at least 752 known Gronitt (stories or parables) about Brib.
Next I'd like to share with you the Gronitr about Brib and the man who lost his tonsils.
