The Hideous Wongle

The Hideous Wongle

He lurches and he lurks,

He creeps and he clunks,

The hideous, lolloping wongle thurtles as he thunks.

He stalks at bungled angles,

And adjusts his distended fangle,

Boffering and twisting his grunkledtenkle-fankle!

He chews on the wangled wumchum tree,

And clanks his boney, warty knees,

Churkling as he coggles his nesterated maximeee.

Beware the wongle!

It's merciless beast!

His toes crackle as he creeps!

The hideous, wicked wongle, gurkling his fumchum feast.

Mrumnias Crank

Mrumnias Crank has big, black boots,

As big as boots can be,

He wears a big, black cape,

And coughs and splutters nastily.

Mrumnias Crank has a big, black feather,

Nestled in his cap,

He limps through the shadows,

And carries a big, black sack.

Mrumnias Crank is diligent in his work,

He is a conscientious man,

His job is the get you,

That's his mendacious plan.

He's the baddest of the bad,

Of that there's no doubt,

When Mrumnias Crank comes 'round,

You'd better watch out!

Standing beside a rock there was a charismatic figure taking a piss. It was a charismatic pissing, the sort of pissing one would expect from a charismatic figure, and he was periodically grunting with satisfaction.

"Ah," he said in a manly fashion.

When he had concluded his urination, which was a long drawn out affair, the figure pulled his poncho about him and started walking.

In the distance a mountain range perched on the horizon. Between the man and mountains there was a wide flat bit of deserty scene strewn with rocks, pock marked with a few craters, and covered with few jutty, sandy sort of things. It looked like a golf-course that hadn't been watered in a few hundred years.

Until now, of course.

Fame is a measure of worth used by people who have no taste.


The Free Market and the Island of Reindeer Problem

It was 1970. A group of apparatchiks from the Soviet Union visited a local council people in the UK. One of the apparatchiks was amazed by the bread distribution system in London. He wanted to know how it worked. Who was the genius reponsible? He asked:

"... who organises the bread supply in London?"

To confusion of the folks from the USSR, the English council member just said:
