ONE MAN NAMED HIS DUCK BILLED PLATYPUS, HAROLD —
BUT REALIZING THE ENFORCED ILLUSIONARY BALANCE DEMANDED WITHIN•A REALITY OF
ODD NUMBERED DIMENSIONS,
HE THEN NAMED HIS HAROLD, DUCK BILL PLATYPUS — THAT IS
UNTIL HIS MOTHER WALKED PAST HIS ROOM AND CALLED OUT TO HIM,
“I TOLD YOU TO KEEP THAT THING IN YOUR PANTS!, YOUNG MAN.”,
AND HE CRIED BACK: “AH, MA! — THAT’S MY JOHNSON, NOT MY HAROLD.”,
AND SHE SHOUTED OVER HER SHOULDER AS SHE KEPT WALKING,
“I DON’T CARE HOW MANY FLAVORS THEY SERVE,
I STILL WANT YOU TO KEEP THAT THING ZIPPED UP WHERE IT BELONGS.”
…AND HE WAS LEFT TO SIT THERE REFLECTING ONCE AGAIN ON THE
COMPLETELY PREDICTABLE NATURE,
AND TOTALLY UNRELIABLE REALITY OF WHAT OCCURS IN LIFE
ONCE IT IS REPORTED ON,
AND TALKED ABOUT.
….AND IN OBVIOUS NON-VERBAL AGREEMENT THEREWITH, HIS JOHNSON, I MEAN, PLATYPUS, PURRED.

ONE MAN STRUCK OIL! —
STRUCK IT IN HIS ABDOMEN —
GUSHED UP TO HIS HEAD -TRIED TO CAP IT OFF -NO USE —
LET IT GO —
NO USE — LET IT FLOW,
“YEAH-H-H-H! — WE’RE ALL FRIGGIN’ BILLIONAIRES”
„ , (BUT ONE STRANGE MAN SAID HE WANTED HIS POVERTY BACK ?!?)
97027-3
ONE MAN SAID,
“You KNOW WHAT I HATE ABOUT GOING TO SLEEP AT NIGHT? – THE UNCONTROLLABLE DREAMS I HAVE,
YOU KNOW WHAT I HATE ABOUT DAY TIME CONSCIOUSNESS” – THE SAME THING!”
….(AND MORPHEUS CONSIDERED SICKIN’ THUNDERBOLT ON ‘EM — THEN FIGURED, “NAW!”
— WHY SHOOT HIS OWN TROOPS?!)
97027-4
IN ONE LIFE, ONE MAN WAS A HORSE —
IN THE NEXT, HE WAS A RIDER —
THEN IN THE NEXT, A HORSE AGAIN —
THEN IN THE ONE AFTER THAT HE WAS A RIDER ONCE MORE,
AND SO ON LIKE THAT
THROUGHOUT THE DAY.
.,.”HEY YOU — GIMMIE THAT CROP!”
“HEY – WHO YOU CALLIN’,1A CROP’?!”
97027-5
THE CURIOUS NATURE OF CAPTIVITY ON ONE DISTANT WORLD
OVER THERE, IF YOU THINK THAT YOU’RE BEING HELD IN THE NORTHERN DISTRICT —
— YOU ARE!
AND IF YOU THINK THAT YOU’RE BEING HELD IN THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT —
— THEN YOU ARE,
AND IF YOU THINK THAT YOU’RE BEING HELD IN THE EASTERN DISTRICT —
— YOU ARE,
AND SAME BEING TRUE FOR THE WESTERN AS WELL.
….IS THIS NOT HIGHLY “CURIOUS”?! —
…(WELL OF COURSE, UNLESS YOU’VE VISITED THERE YOURSELF, AND HAVE A PERSONAL “FEEL” FOR WHAT’S GOING ON THERE.)

ONE MAN HAD A DISEASE -IT WASN’T FATAL,
BUT HE WORRIED OVER SO INTENSIVELY THAT IT ADVERSELY EFFECTED HIS LIFE;
SO HE TRIED TO QUIT THINKING ABOUT IT,
AND FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME, HE WOULDN’T,
BUT THEN HE’D ALWAYS THINK ABOUT IT AGAIN,
AND NOW WHEN HE DID,
HE WAS BOTHERED EVEN MORE BY THE FACT THAT HE WAS NOW NOT
WORRYING ABOUT IT ALL OF THE TIME,
I ASK YOU NOW, FRIENDS AND AFICIONADOS OF SELF-PITYING —
— WHAT’S A POOR MIND TO DO ?!
….EXCEPT — SEE THE RASH FOR — WHAT IT IS, AND,
MAKE IT STAY RIGHT — WHERE IT IS, AND — VIOLA!,
NO MORE VIOLA.
THE REASON YOU NEVER HEAR OF THE UNIVERSE’S MOST FAMOUS EXPLORERS IS THAT THEY’RE ALL MURDERED AT THE MOMENT OF THEIR DISCOVERY.
COUNT ON IT! — PUT IT IN YOUR POCKET! — TAKE IT TO THE BANK! -INVEST IT IN A CURE, THEN FORGET IT EVER HAPPENED,
WHAT’S A POOR MIND TO DO — OTHER THAN WHAT A RICH MAN MAKES IT DO?!

EVERY DAY, ONE MAN WOULD BEAT HIMSELF UP —
AND NOT JUST ONCE, BUT OFTEN, MANY TIMES A DAY;
THIS ULTIMATELY PROVED OF SUCH GREAT BENEFIT THAT —
— HE QUIT DOING IT.
“ALL RIGHT BAILIFF — CALL THE NEXT CASE.”
“YES, YOUR HONOR, IT’S: THE PEOPLE VS THEMSELVES
“HOLD ON THERE! — IS THAT ALL OF THE PEOPLE?”
“YES, YOUR HONOR, I’M AFRAID SO — ALL OF THE PEOPLE! ….(EXCEPT OF COURSE FOR THE, ‘YOU-KNOW-WHO’S’!)” “UHH, THAT’S RIGHT — I NEARLY FORGOT ABOUT THEM.”
“THAT’S OKAY, YOUR HONOR — SO DID THEY NEARLY!”
EVERY DAY, DO MEN BEAT THEMSELVES —
— NOT PHYSICALLY —
BUT IN A WAY, EVEN WORSE —
….FROM A CERTAIN VIEW —
….BY A CERTAIN FEW —
(AND I DON’T MEAN, PSYCHIATRISTS, AND
CIVILIAN NEUROTICS).
STOPPING IT PROVED TO BE OF SUCH PERSONAL BENEFIT, THAT ONE MAN DID.
..,NOW – CLOSE LIP COURT FOR THE DAY1 (IF NOT LONGER.)

IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF AN ISOLATED LAND
WAS ONCE A MYSTICAL SCHOOL, DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS, EACH SET ON ITS OWN SEPARATE MOUNTAIN TOP;
AT THE FIRST BRANCH THEY TAUGHT”SUCH-&-SUCH” TO BE TRUE,
WHILE AT THE SECOND THEY SAID THAT “SUCH-&-SUCH” WAS SPECIFICALLY UNTRUE, AND AT THE THIRD, STUDENTS WERE TOLD THAT THEY MUST LEARN TO
RECONCILE THE CONTRADICTION
AND ONCE A MAN HAD ACCOMPLISHED THIS
IT WAS REVEALED. TO HIM THE EXISTENCE OF A SECRET FOURTH OUTPOST ATOP THE RANGE’S HIGHEST PEAK
TO WHICH HE’D BE TAKEN AND THROWN THEREFROM.
YOU EVER THINK ABOUT THE MONEY MYSTICS SAVE ON GRADUATION KNICK KNACKS?!
97027-9,
A PERSON GOT MARRIED AND NAMED THEIR SPOUSE, SAME OLD SHIT, AND THINGS WORKED OUT EVEN BETTER THAN IMAGINED
IN THAT LOCALLY, THERE WERE NO PROHIBITIONS REGARDING INCEST.
ONE CANNIBAL SAID: “I MAY BE LACKING IN GOOD TASTE, BUT AT LEAST I DINE ONLY ON MYSELF.”,
GUESS HE THINKS THAT, EXCULPATORY — THEN AGAIN–
MEN
MEN
FIND ANYTHING THEY CAN THINK OF TO SAY ABOUT ANYTHING THEY DO
A REASONABLE. [TO THEM], EXPLANATION.
AFTER ALL – REMEMBER — THE VERY LAST THING GOD SAID TO ADAM AS HE USHERED HIM FROM THE GARDEN WAS:
“NOW DON’T FORGET TO TALK WHEN NECESSARY OR EVEN JUST CONVENIENT.
NOW, GET OUTTA HERE!, YOU LITTLE HAIRY RASCAL YOU.”)

THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO WENT ALONE INTO A DARK CAVE TO MEDITATE.

97027-11
ONE MAN CONCLUDED:
“SINCE EMOTIONS ARE FAKE — I’LL MAKE MY EMOTIONS.”

THERE WAS ONCE A MYSTICAL ORDER WHO SUMMED UP THEIR COMPLETE APPROACH
IN THE THREE WORD DIRECTIVE, “QUICK! – DON’T MOVE!”,
OF WHOSE BREVITY THEY WERE QUITE PROUD —
BUT THEN LEARNED OF ANOTHER SCHOOL WHO ALSO HAD A THREE WORD MAXIM,
SO THE FIRST GROUP CHANGED THEIRS TO SIMPLY, “DON’T MOVE!”,
ONLY TO HEAR OF YET ANOTHER ORDER WHO HAD A TWO WORD SHIBBOLETH ALSO — SO!,
TO RETAIN THEIR LEADERSHIP IN THIS AREA THEY SHORTENED THEIR GUIDING PRINCIPLE
TO THE ONE WORD, “Now.”
97027-1
ONE MAN SUDDENLY HAD THIS IDEA:
THAT HIS EFFORTS TO SHIFT AROUND WHAT HAPPENS IN HIS MIND
WOULD BE MORE LIKELY OF SUCCESS IF HE COULD HAVE NEW EYES IMPLANTED IN HIS HEAD SO THAT HE WOULD NO LONGER SEE EVERYTHING AS HE ALWAYS HAD,
DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I LIKE IT.)

ONE MAN DECIDED THAT EVERYONE ELSE WAS GOING TO SLOW — SO HE DECIDED TO BEGIN RACING — — BUT HE RACED IN A RUT.

“,Now!”
97027-17
ONE MAN DECIDED THAT IF HE COULDN’T START DOING MORE OF WHAT HE KNEW HE SHOULD BE DOING THAT HE’LL KILL HIMSELF! —

97027-18
“Now!”

THERE’S THIS PLACE THAT — EVEN AFTER YOU’VE BEEN THERE -IT’S GOOD TO HAVE A DIFFERENT MAP EVERY TIME TO GET BACK
AND NOW: THE SAD BUT TRUE TALE OF ONE MAN’S FUTILE MYSTICAL QUEST HEY!,
WE JUST DID THAT ONE, DIDN’T WE?! —
THE ONE THAT SAID, “‘CAUSE HE COULDN’T QUIT JUGGLING”, OR SOMETHIN’ LIKE THAT 
97027-23
ONE FRUSTRATED MAN RODE A MERRY GO ROUND
UNTIL HE WAS READY TO SHOOT THE HORSE OUT FROM UNDER HIMSELF —
BUT THEN RAN UPON THE PROBLEM OF HIS MIND BEING THE ONLY WEAPON AVAILABLE, AND IT HAVING TOO GOOD A TIME, (APPARENTLY), TO GO ALONG WITH THE PLAN.
“UP AND DOWN, UP AND DOWN, UP AND DOWN, LIP AND DOWN.”,
“ARE YOU DESCRIBING THE ENDLESS CYCLE OF MAN’S BIRTH & DEATH?!”
“UP AND DOWN, UP AND DOWN, UP AND DOWN, UP AND DOWN.”

97027-24
ONE MAN HAD A PARTICULARLY ADVERSARIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH INANIMATE OBJECTS, AND CONCLUDED THAT IT WAS DUE TO THEIR STATIC STATUS WITHIN AN
EVER-CHANGING, ACTIVE ENVIRONMENT —
— THEN EVENTUALLY BEGIN TO SEE IT AS ARISING FROM HIM BEING MENTALLY INERT WITHIN AN OTHERWISE DYNAMIC REALITY.
THE CHILDREN SHOWED HAND SHADOWS — ON THE WALL, THEY SURED SHOWED THAT — BUT THAT WASN’T ALL

WORDS
WORDS ARE LIKE FREIGHT CARS IN A TRAIN OF THOUGHT; WORDS ARE LIKE INDIVIDUAL ANTS IN AN ARMY ON THE MOVE; WORDS ARE LIKE WHITE CAPS ON AN ENDLESS SEA OF WAVES; WORDS — ONCE STARTED — ARE DIFFICULT TO STOP, (IN CASE YOU HADN’T NOTICED.)
* * *
97027-26
IN ONE CITY, A NEW HEALTH PROBLEM HAS APPEARED:
THERE’S A SMALL PUZZLE THAT CHILDREN CAN SWALLOW
WHICH ENDS UP ON THEIR OUTSIDES
CAUSING LATER LIFE DIFFICULTIES LIKE YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE!
….(WELL YEAH YOU WOULD BELIEVE, (FOR REASONS WE WON’T GO INTO),
BUT THE THEATRICS MADE IT SOUND NICE, (PLUS DREW ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE REASONS I MENTIONED THAT WE WEREN’T GOING INTO — WINK, WINK!)
THERE WAS ONCE A GANG OF COSMIC COWBOYS WHO DRIFTED FROM ONE WORLD TO ANOTHER, AND WHO EVENTUALLY DEVELOPED SADDLE SORES IN AN AREA OPPOSITE FROM WHERE YOU’D EXPECTED —
DID I MENTION THAT THEY WERE MENTAL COWBOYS? —
BOUNCING FROM ONE FACELESS LITTLE TOWN AND IRRELEVANT IDEA TO ANOTHER,
— THEN BACK AGAIN — ONLY TO RICOCHET OFF — TO RETURN AGAIN —
AND ON AND ON THEIR TRAVELS GO.
97027-27
As HE KNELT DOWN BY THE CAMPFIRE, LOOKING OVER THE MATERIAL SPREAD BEFORE HIM,
ONE SIDEWINDER MUSED:
“PERHAPS I COULD EXTRICATE MYSELF FROM THIS PLACE
IF I WOULD THOROUGHLY PISS ON THESE WORTHLESS MAPS,”
AND A VOICE INJECTED:
“DON’T YOU MEAN TO SAY, IF YOU COULD COME LIP WITH SOME NEW MAPS?! —
— DESTROYING THE PRESENT ONES WOULD SURELY SERVE NO USEFUL PURPOSE.”,
AND THE SIDEWINDER WAS SORELY TEMPTED TO PISS ON THE VOICE,
97027-28
A PAST MYSTICAL ORDER, (OF LAW ENFORCEMENT LEANINGS PERHAPS?!), HAD AS ITS CORE APPROACH THIS WARNING: “No FALSE MOVES!”
97027-29
THERE ARE TWO MAIN WAYS TO GO ABOUT TRYING TO BECOME BETTER CONSCIOUS, AND NEITHER ONE OF ‘EM IS — TALKIN’ ABOUT IT.
…AND ONE GUY SAID: “SEE – I TOLD YOU TO SHUT UP!”,
“No!”, HE REPLIED, “I TOLD YOU TO SHUT Up!”,
“NOT LIKELY!”, HE REPORTED, “I TOLD YOU TO SHUT UP!”,
“DIDN’T! — I’M THE ONE WHO TOLD YOU!”,
“DIDN’T!”
“DID!”
“DIDN’T!’
“DID!”
“AH-H-H, WHY THE HELL DON’T CHU JUST SHUT THE HELL UP!?”
YES – THERE ARE TWO MAIN WAYS TO GO ABOUT MOST ANYTHING,
AND YOU’VE JUST WITNESSED TWO OF THE WAYS NOT TO — I MEAN, TO TO.
AND ONE MAN DECIDED THAT,”NO MATTER WHAT YOU’RE SAYING,
IF YOU’RE TALKIN’ — YOU’RE BARKIN’ UP THE WRONG TREE STUMP.”,
AND HIS COUSIN ASKED HIM WHY HE SAID “TREE STUMP” INSTEAD OF “TREE”,
(AS WOULD BE EXPECTED IN SUCH A SENTENCE), AND HE REPLIED TO HIS BROTHER’S BOY
BY KICKING HIM IN THE CROTCH WHILE ASKING IF THAT WAS,
“HIGH ENOUGH UP THE OAK” TO SATISFY HIM, APPARENTLY ATTEMPTING TO INDICATE
THAT HIS ORIGINAL PHRASING CARRIED SOME METAPHORICAL SIGNIFICANCE —
…(A LOT THE KID CARED UNDER THE INSTANT CIRCUMSTANCES.)
97027-30
SO SIGHED A GUY:
“AH-H-H, THE GODS
SURE HATED THE MYSTICS.”,
AND A BY-STANDER ASKED WHY HE SAID THAT, AND THE GUY REPLIED:
“IF YOU’AS A MYSTIC, YOU WOULDN’T HAVE TO ASK.”
…,BUT, HEY!, IF YOU THINK THAT’S ROUGH — CHEW ON THIS:
How COME YOU NEVER SEE ANY RETIREMENT HOMES FOR THE AWAKENED?!, NO OLD FOLKS FACILITIES FOR THE LIMBER & LIBERATED?
THERE NO JUSTICE IN THE WORLD!
….0H-H-H-H I HOPE NOT!
UH-H-H-H, I SURELY DO.
97027-31
WHILE SOME TIMES SOME MEN HAVE CERTAIN SONGS THEY FAVOR WITH CERTAIN DANCES, EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN LIST OF FAVORITE SONGS AND FAVORITE DANCES, NONE OF WHICH NEED HAVE ANY RELATIONSHIP TO ONE ANOTHER —
A MAN INTENT ON LEAVING THE LOCAL BALLROOM HAS, AS HIS MOST EFFECTIVE OPTION,
THE POSSIBILITY OF SHOOTING THE SINGER, THEN
SLIDING-G-G OUT THE DOOR,
ONE MAN SAID: “I DREAMED I DIED AND WENT TO ALLEGORY HEAVEN -WHERE I FOUND NOTHING BUT — DEAD ALLEGORIES,
„,AH-H-H, SWEET HEAVEN AT LAST!”
THERE IS NOTHING QUITE SO BRACING TO AN EX-BALLROOM DANCER
THAN THE FEEL TO THE FACE OF A COLD HARDWOOD FLOOR.
..”AH-H-H!, AT LAST — NO MORE DREAMS,”

THOUGHTS
IF YOU KEEP THINKING THE SAME THINGS, YOU’LL KEEP THINKING THE SAME THINGS; IF YOU KEEP USING THE SAME INGREDIENTS, YOU’LL KEEP COOKING THE SAME DISHES; IF YOU KEEP USING THE SAME BAIT, YOU’LL KEEP CATCHING THE SAME FISH —
HEY! — WHA’ CHU EXPECT?! —
HEY! — WHEN YA GONNA WISE UP?!

NEW MAPS AREN’T JUST GOOD FOR GOING TO NEW PLACES — THEY’RE ALSO TO BE USED TO ESCAPE FROM OLD ONES.

ONE MAN HAD A CAMERA IMPLANTED IN HIS HEAD TO FILM EVERYTHING HE DID —
— BUT THEN HE’D NEGLECT TO WATCH THE FILM.
ALTHOUGH AWARE OF IT – THE ORDINARY THINK OF LIFE AS, “MISSION IMPOSSIBLE”, WHILE A MAN WHO HAS BECOME FAMILIAR WITH ITS OPERATIONS SIMPLY TRIES NOT TO THINK ABOUT IT.
….(TRY IT! — YOUR FEET’LL THANK YOU FOR IT.
….I”HUMMMMM — DANCING IN THE DARK….
LA DA DA DA-A-A “])

ONE MAN LIVED IN A MOST CURIOUS HOUSE —
WHENEVER SOMETHING INSIDE WENT WRONG,
AND HE’D CALL FOR OUTSIDE HELP TO COME FIX IT, IT’D MAKE THINGS WORSE,
IT TOOK HIM A LONG-G-G TIME TO REALIZE THIS WAS HAPPENING —
— IT’S TAKING EVEN LONGER FOR HIM TO FIGURE SOME WAY TO DESCRIBE THIS TO ANYONE ELSE,
ON ONE WORLD,
IMMEDIATELY AFTER A CHILD IS BORN,
LIFE DISCREETLY LAYS BY ITS BED, A CARD PHONE CARD THAT SAYS:
“WHEN IN NEED — CALL SOME ONE — ANY ONE — BUT CALL SOME ONE —
THAT’S THE NORMAL WAY.”
THE GUY ON THE GROUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LADDER CONTINUED TO CUT OFF RUNGS
AND THROW THEM TO THE GUY ON THE ROOF TO INSTALL WHERE THEY WERE MISSING ON TOP
ON A FAR AWAY STAR,WAS ONCE A RACE WHOSE VIEW EVOLVED_ TO THIS: “THE ONLY WAY THAT ANYTHING CAN BE ‘FIXED’ IS TO -LEAVE IT ALONE!”
97027-35
IF YOU DON’T DEPEND ON ANYTHING YOU DON’T HAVE TO SEEK INDEPENDENCE,
9 7 0 2 7 – 3 6
THE ORDINARY EXERCISE AND EVIDENCE THEIR “INTELLIGENCE” BY COMMENTING ON THE EXTERNAL WORLD OF EVENTS — ONLY MYSTICS DO, ON MAN’S INTERNAL STATES.

FROM A FRESH STACK OF MILITARY PRESS RELEASES:
, THE WORLD OF THOUGHT AND THE BATTLE FOR THE SKIES
FLOWN, UN-MANNED,
ONE MAN BEGAN TO PICTURE HIS MIND AS A, “STUPIDITY-SEEKING MISSILE”

AVAILABLE IS TWO DISTINCT WAYS TO LOOK AT HAVING AN INVISIBLE COMPANION
WHO TRAVELS WITH YOU THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE:
ONE WAY IS TO LOOK AT IT LIKE I JUST DESCRIBED IT,
AND THE OTHER IS TO NOT LOOK AT IT AT ALL.
IN MY BOOK, INVISIBLE COMPANIONS GET WHAT THEY DESERVE IF YOU’RE LUCKY!
…AND A CRY WAS HEARD: “EITHER — LET ME OFF THIS TRAIN! — OR,
LET THIS TRAIN OFF OF ME!
I DON’T CARE WHICH — YOU SON OF A BITCH!”,
AND HE REPLIED BY REMINDING HIMSELF THAT HE SHOULD NOT TALK TO HIMSELF.
JUST ABOUT THEN, THAT PECULIAR RAILROAD DOCTOR CAME THROUGH THE CAR,
RECOMMENDING THAT ALL WHO COULD NO LONGER TOLERATE THE RIDE,
NOT TOLERATE IT ANY LONGER —
….A NOTION THAT SAT MORE THAN WELL WITH A FEW —
THEM SEEMING HESITANT IN ONLY NOT KNOWING
IMMEDIATELY WHAT TO DO ?!?!
“JUMP!, DAMMIT!”, SHOUTED THE DOCTOR, “JUMP! — NOW!!!”
97027-39
WHEN IN BED AT NIGHT — JUST BEFORE FALLING ASLEEP —
ONE MAN BEGAN TO HAVE THIS IDEA THAT IF,
WHEN IN THE MIDDLE OF A DREAM,
HE COULD INSTANTLY – WAKE LIP!,
THAT IT MIGHT HAVE BENEFICIAL CONSEQUENCES.
….(HE SAYS THAT HE’S HESITATED TO MENTION THIS TO ANYONE
FOR FEAR THEY’D ASK HIM WHY HE DOESN’T TRY THE SAME THING
DURING THE DAY LIGHT HOURS.
…[HE ASSURES US THAT THE WORLD IS SIMPLY BURSTING WITH SUCH
SMART MOUTHS!])
FOR YEARS, ONE MAN SEARCHED FOR THE BIG TREASURE,
AND ALL ALONG THE WAY KEPT DISCOVERING SMALL ONES….WHICH HE’D TELL PEOPLE ABOUT
WELL — ONE DAY HE FINALLY FOUND THE “BIG ONE” —
BUT DO YOU THINK HE EVER MENTIONED TO ANYBODY  HUH! – NOT HARDLY!
AND,”WHY?”, YOU MAY ASK — HEY! — ASK HIM! … AND, HEY!,
YOU KIDS IN THE BACK, QUIT TALKING TO YOURSELVES AND STICKIN’ YOUR MINDS UP YOUR HEADS. NOW, STOP IT! — YOU HEAR ME?!
97027-40
IN ONE TOWN,
THE WORD WENT ROUND THAT THE
MERRY GO ROUND HAD BEEN BOOBY TRAPPED!
…YOU THINK THAT STOPPED PEOPLE FROM RIDIN’? …THINK AGAIN, YOU RUBE!,
YOU’RE SURE NOT FROM ‘ROUND HERE!

ONE MAN FINALLY BACKED HIMSELF INTO AN ABSOLUTELY INESCAPABLE CORNER AND SAID: “WELL – FINALLY!”
