post and receive a silly title
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 09:41 AM by Lerkfish
(inspired by Cally's compliment thread)

if you post here, I will confer upon you a genuinely silly title.
Just to get the ball rolling, and to see what I mean:

To Skinner, I confer upon thee the title of:

Skinner: Mad Slinger of Sharpened pencils, Confounder of Lost Tourists

To Cally, I confer upon the the title of:

Cally: Hurler of the Sharp Cheddar of Death, He(or she) Who is Individually Sliced

see? so...to get your silly title, post here and ask for one, and specify your gender if you want (makes it easier to dream up a silly title)

...I've done this before, about 8 years ago at a private board, so I'm a professional on a closed course. Do not attempt this at home.

:grouphug:

I edited to add: I'm at work, so there may be long periods of inattention to this thread, but I promise I will try to get to everyone. Also: I apologize in advance if anyone gets offended, but please don't, as they're supposed to be silly and just for fun. They may have no relevance to your actual personality...or if they DO have relevance, you might not want to admit that publicly.... :D

103. ok, here goes...
Time Travel Is Impossible

Sure, it'd be nice to boldy sit
on liveried steed of Lancelot
or pinch the bottom of fair Juliet
and see what made Romeo hot


To buckle swash with Pirates dead
or huddle under tall Collosus
to kick the Fuhrer in the head
Smack Mussolini with galoshes


But think on this before you sleep
a Gordian knot is set in your path
a spatial hurdle you cannot leap
Under deadly weight of hidden math


For stars expanding outward flung
at speeds extreme and quite annoying
from points unknown to spots unsung
the measurements are not for toying


For even if enigma cured
of temporal manipulation
In years you'd hop, but here's absurd...
you'd land at what location?


For where we find New Hampshire now
a million years ago was different
And where was once a silly cow
a trillion light years distant


"Just do the math!" you may exclaim
But beg to differ, here I ask you
Tho you at axis x take aim
There's z and y and maybe double-u


And if space folds in upon itself
a pretzel dipped in stellar salt
Things don't stay neatly placed on shelf
nor stay when simply ordered "halt!"


So even if you wrestle WHEN
and cause it singular distress
the WHERE will sneak around you then
and strand you, "lost in space" address


and the saddest realization rhymes
while drifting past the stars in fear
Oh, you can get there anytime
you just cant get there from here.
