  1. So cute -- but they really need to work on their meter!

  2. Nice. I have to agree with Richard, their rhymes are awfully shocking.

  3. Fun. How far away is this from "I'm a Mac" or "I invented Windows 7.0"?

    PS: I got mail! Thanks.

    1. New address. Emily Post said send a new calling card, but I do not live in 1890s New York.

  4. Very cute, but the use of meter is physically painful. Somewhere, Stephen Fry is weeping openly.

    1. I have been reading/watching a significant amount of Fry recently and this is a wonderful coincidence. No doubt, he would use some splendid arrangement of words to indicate his distain for such provincial rhyme and meter. But it was the 1950s where Campbell's tomato soup was considered an acceptable ingredient for red velvet cake. Oh, 1950s, you were terrible and wonderful.

    2. Fry actually represents a difficulty for me. On the one hand, his book, The Ode Less Traveled, is the definitive book on poetry for neophytes like me. That, and he voiced the narrator in Little Big Planet! However, I find that he lacks, let's call it, "diplomacy" (or is it tact?) when it comes to persons whose belief system diverge from his own.

  5. I love how everyone is ragging on their meter. It bugged me too, but I just figured they had a too-tight deadline or too many martinis. Or both.
