"Beware the Jabberwock my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that snatch
Beware the Jubjub bird and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch."
He took his vorpal sword in hand,
Long time the manxsome foe he sought
Till rested he by the Tumtum tree
And stood awhile in thought.
And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame
Came whiffling through the tulgy wood
And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two! And through and through
His vorpal blade went snicker-snack,
He left it dead and with its head
He went galumphing back.
"And hast though slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms my beamish boy!
Oh frabjous day! Caloo calay!"
He chortled in his joy.
Twas brillig and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe
All mimsy were the borogroves
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock my son!
There you go, JMH
The moon was shining sulkily,
Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
After the day was done -
'It's very rude of him,' she said,
'To come and spoil the fun!'
They went to sea in a Sieve, they did,
In a Sieve they went to sea:
In spite of all their friends could say,
On a winter's morn, on a stormy day,
In a Sieve they went to sea!
And when the Sieve turned round and round,
And every one cried, 'You'll all be drowned!'
They called aloud, 'Our Sieve ain't big,
But we don't care a button! we don't care a fig!
In a Sieve we'll go to sea!
Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live;
Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a Sieve.
'The time has come,' the Walrus said,
'To talk of many things:
Of shoes -- and ships -- and sealing wax --
Of cabbages -- and kings --
And why the sea is boiling hot --
And whether pigs have wings.'
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

"A loaf of bread," the Walrus said,
"Is what we chiefly need:
Pepper and vinegar besides
Are very good indeed--
Now if you're ready, Oysters dear,
We can begin to feed."
"But not on us!" the Oysters cried,
Turning a little blue.
"After such kindness, that would be
A dismal thing to do!"
"The night is fine," the Walrus said.
"Do you admire the view?
"It was so kind of you to come!
And you are very nice!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"Cut us another slice:
I wish you were not quite so deaf--
I've had to ask you twice!"
"It seems a shame," the Walrus said,
"To play them such a trick,
After we've brought them out so far,
And made them trot so quick!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"The butter's spread too thick!"
"I weep for you," the Walrus said:
"I deeply sympathize."
With sobs and tears he sorted out
Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.
"O Oysters," said the Carpenter,
"You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?'
But answer came there none--
And this was scarcely odd, because
They'd eaten every one.
(Not to interrupt, but the last few posts all have something in common...)
Thanks OneOfMany, I was too lazy to google :)
yes, HO, we have all been quoting some of the silliest poems verbatim. But it's still good fun!
but those latkes burned for 8 days loooong.....ouuuuuuuuwgh!
We go forward because we dare not go back. (GK Chesterton)
Who cares?! In the end, we're gonna be redeemed anyway, move to E"Y, bask in G-d's Glory, learn torah with the deepest of pleasures and wisdom, have world peace, illness deseases and sickness will be a thing of the past, be in the company of the greatest spiritual giants ever, have eternal happiness and bliss, and have zero worries to distract us from all this.
Oh, and no cellphones.
so instead of a 'k' i wrote a 'q' and pressed enter.
that was at 3 am.
the next morning when i logged on i'm like "whaaa.....?? who spells tzaddik with a q??!"
Every time I'm driving and the green light turns yellow, I always have that same voice in my head scream out, "Challenge accepted!"
i'm confused. oh, wait, maybe i'm not...
(Every time I'm stopped at a red and it turns to green, I check both ways for BaalHabooze and proceed)

Turn to page three hundred and ninety-four
and then, there were SEVEN.
