I made a bad pun to Dan on Wednesday. I mentioned the pun to Jake
on Thursday. On Friday, Jake wrote a poem expounding on the bad pun.
Monday's child is fair of face. Here's the poem (doggerel, Jake
calls it. It is doggerel. It's a doggerel beer.):
in a very special sort
of suit the waiter served a torte
that poisoned was and so with poise
he passed it on to his employs
but later found and malice proved
the coppers followed suit and sued
and from the bistro to the court
they served a special kind of tort
and when it looked like he was beat
the waiter did retort the heat
the waiter did reheat the torte
and ate it then and there, in court.
he never broke a single plate
cussed or drank or came in late
in court he threw his only fit:
"you cannot fire me- i quit."
This site is turning into a poetry corner or something.

Jake's latest album, Ordem e Progresso, is out. I still haven't
gotten the CD, but you and me both can get the
MP3s at Jake's MP3.com page. Also
downloadable from there: Many MP3s from Jake's previous effort
Robot Moped Dehumidifier. Ordem e Progresso contains
something resembling a cover of my own Liquid
Crystal. Also includes Pterodactyl Attack and
Susanna's Webpage. If this trend continues, Jake's next album
will have 5 tracks on it that are covers of my songs or otherwise
related to me, and eight albums down the line I won't even have to
do my own albums because Jake will do them for me.
Kris' album is also out, although a couple of the tracks are
mysteriously missing from his
MP3.com page. Oh, "four tracks unavaliable anywhere else" if you
buy the CD. I see how it is. I see. Also not on the album (not on
mp3.com either for copyright reasons (I don't see any copyright reasons,
but Kris does)) is Kris' fab cover of Asia Carrera, which I
plugged in this space a while ago and which I can now
leonardr's picks: For Kris, Solid State, Shot Down Again, Border,
No Alternative. For Jake, There's A Mirror On My Grave
("Your shoestring budget will be the death of you!"
Hot Stuff, Susanna's Webpage, My Pal Foot Foot,
and I Sing Because I Live With Satan. For the man who
has everything, I recommend more of everything.
