Memorable Last Lines from Books. Identify?

"Why it might even come in the middle of a sentence and I'd."

"It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known."

"Pernando walked from the helipad. Behind him the red, white and green flapped in the wind."

"Maybe, in only a thousand years."

"Done this day Aprilius 16, in the year of our Lord One Thousand One Hundred and Seventy, being the hundredth year of the English Peoples' Republic."

"The message consisted of.. well it mostly said the word 'darling'."

"Perhaps he would take up Scrabble."

Seen at Lunch Today. Another term for the tRump

At a local pub for lunch. They had the toob on and the Rump came on talking. Somebody (not me) thumbed the toob and said in a Cartman voice, "Screw that, I'm going home. Talking poop is where I draw the line.

Two replacements for 'Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Mo'

There are reasons for not using 'eenie, meenie, miney, mo, but it is still needed. Here are two replacements.

1: Eenie meenie chili beanie.
Stooges like a wet sardiney.
Moe and Larry, Curly, Shemp.
Last one in gets all the hemp.

And

2: Eenie meenie chili beanie.
Stooges like a wet sardiney.
Moe and Larry, Curly, Joe.
Last one in's the first to go.

I need a collective noun

for a group of NIMBYs. I mean like a flourish of strumpets, a parliament of owls, a turd of tRumps, and so on.

Anybody have suggestions?

Thank you.

Since Christmas Song Season is almost over, Here are Some

Good King Stephen

"Good King Stephen looked outside,
On the Feast of Wenzel.
Slapped his pocket and exclaimed,
'I have lost my pencil!'

While a lackey standing near
A window drew a stencil.
And a rooster crowed quite loud,
Sitting on a fencil hmmm.

Then King Stephen went outdoors,
Into the night so cru-el.
And he saw a poor man there,
Gath'ring winter fu-el.

He said 'That I'm still up north,
I feel like a foo-el.
If I were in Cape Town now,
I'd be by the poo-el hmmm."

Do You See What I See?

Said the night wind to the little lamb,
Do you see what I see?
Way up in the sky silly sheep,
Do you see what I see?
A star, a star dancing in the night, with a tail as big as a kite, (What's a kite), with a tail as big as a kite.

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
Do you hear what I hear?
Bellowing like a poxy goat.
Do you hear what I hear?
A song, a song sounding o'er the trees,
with a voice as big as the seas, with a voice as big as the seas.

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,
'I just heard a sheep talk.
I know you won't believe a thing.
But I just heard a sheep talk.
A sheep, a sheep, a wooly little sheep. Won't you please call my analyst.
I think I'm cracking up.

Said the mighty king to the little lamb.
'You'd taste good well roasted.'
And so they ate the little lamb.
And he was good well roasted.
With mint sauce and a fine rose wine
O what a feast that was.
I wish I'd been there.

[Some have the custom of shouting BILLY RAM BAM! every time the word lamb is sung, but that's not part of the song and you shouldn't do it.]

I Hate Snow!

Oh, the weather outside's disgusting,
My water pipes are busting.
In my basement the waters flow,
I hate snow! I hate snow! I hate snow!

The cold weather has me wheezing,
My hands and feet are freezing,
And I want the whole world to know,
I hate snow! I hate snow! I hate snow!

I hate going out in the storm,
So my suitcase I am packing.
My tickets are in my hand.
I'm going where it is warm.

To make like snow's a failure.
So I'm off to south Australia.
And I'll bask in the sun's warm glow,
Far from snow, far from snow, far from snow.

Flying to a Summer Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, I'm not listening.
On the road, Ice is glistening,
I gave up the fight, I'm leaving tonight,
Flying to a summer wonderland.

Gone away is the swallow,
And quite soon I will follow.
My bags are all packed, my money is sacked
Flying to a summer wonderland.

On the beaches we will have a barbie,
As the sun tans our skins to gold.
We'll have shrimp and salad at the Barbie,
And the beer will be the only thing that's cold.

Later on by the fire,
We will plot and conspire.
and find us a way, that we can both stay.
Staying in a summer wonderland

New Christmas Specials This Year

Rudolph's Big Career Move: After being scorned and then cheered by the other reindeer, Rudolph tells the frontrunners to FOAD. He moves to Detroit and becomes the mascot of the Detroit Stags Soccer team. (Animated)

Frosty's Frozen Hell: It's always winter in Christmastown. Eventually the carbon dioxide freezes out of the air and all the plants die, followed by the animals. The mentally challenged snowman clubfoots through six inane songs as the surrounding ecology dies. (Cheap jerky animation by bargain basement animators)

Flying to a Summer Wonderland: Maine couple Ernie and Janet decide to fly to Bermuda for Christmas. Follow them through the airport and onto the island. They don't miss the cold weather but have to listen to North Dakota farmers complain about their small subsidies and welfare chiselers.

Yes, Santa Claus, There is a Virginia: Santa Clause wonderes if there is just a big empty spot south of Maryland. He learns, to his delight, there IS a Virginia, and a North and South Carolina, too. (animated)

Rump's Christmas Surprise: Christmas episode of Rump, a sitcom about a moron who thinks he's President. In the Christmas episode, Rump learns the true meaning of Christmas, as he's put on trial for treason.

South Sun Santa: Father Christmas is overworked so he looks for some help to handle the Southern Hemisphere. The elves pick Harry Lassiter a retiring Sydney, Australia businessman with a soft spot for kids. At first he's reluctant, (He hates cold weather and declares "I've never been north of the Congo River and I have no intention of going." He is talked into it and moves to Elf Island, off the coast of South Africa. See him drive wagons pulled by flying springboks, supersonic penguins and otherwise deal with his new status.

Black Friday.

First here's a song.



And we got through the 22nd and 23rd without a Jackabang conspiracy clown cluster, and Thanksgiving without the Pilgrim bash and guilt wallow.

Thanks to everyone.
