Flash is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe & everything.

I still haven't read that or any of his works, but that's the number this week, so, there you go, a fresh batch of illusory clever, one whych be free to thee.

"Well, this is goodbye.

"To requite your gallonde of godbwyes, I regive you a pottle of how-dyes."


"Yower courtesie is manifest; for yew'd rather haue one farewell then twenty godbwyes."

"No, no, no! You knew I was leaving, you knew I had to -- had to! -- and what do you do, you purposely play -- dammit, you think Allenby sang don't walk in the rain for no good reason? Now you've come down with a case of yeomanry!"

"Gallants, godbwye all."

"Stop it! No goodbyes now, I've got to get you to the hospital!"

"So shall the noble and moste necessarye science of phisicke, with the ministers thereof, escape the sclaunder, which they haue of long tyme susteyned."

"Yes, yes, yes, doctors are respect -- why am I even talking to you, just get in the goddamn car."

"Men of Paracelsian parts are fittest to Mountebanke Satan's Chimistry into sicke Churches and weake Iudgements."

"Look, Jerry, you just told me, ah shit, now you're delirious. Dammit man, listen! There's no fucking Paracelsus, no Agrippa, no Dee, no devils, no charlatans, well no that's not true plenty of those in Washington -- Jesus, you can't you even laugh anymore, can you. C'mon, Jerry, you gotta stay awake man, please! Gotta run this red light, Jerry, I'm begging you, stay awake!"


"I'm sorry. We tried everything. If only he had manifested symptoms earlier, we could have caught his illness in time. My condolences."

"Thanks, doc. Well, Jerry, you sonofabitch, I warned ye & now the tymbur of ye hous is roten be the rayn that falleth theron. Egad! Mine concupiscence, like thine, deserve black helles damnation!"

Now I have another reference point for A Band of Bees' album "Free the Bees."

Tom Harper said...

Let me guess: Supertramp got back together for a reunion album after a 30-year hiatus, and renamed themselves "Forest." Cool.

Cormac Brown said...

Jerry, do not go gently through that red light?

A curious, though wonderful tribute/piece ("triece?").

S.W. Anderson said...

After reading this twice, it's clear to me you've got to get your concupiscence under control. Seriously.

susan said...

For Goddes sake, as beth of bettre cheere;
It is no tyme for to studien heere,
Telle us som myrie tale, by youre fey!

Beach Bum said...

Randal great story!

Cormac, sorry to see you close up shop but I was in the same situation when I bowed out last year, still am, more or less.

I kept dropping in and reading everyone's stuff. And just recently I stumbled upon your great write up and link from July about that dinky Southern fairy tale of mine.

Liberality said...

So is that stuff contagious or what? Seems that you have afflicted even susan with this bug.

Cormac Brown said...


That was a nice slice of life that you wrote and you really made me wonder how often had that happened in real life.

I had your situation and a couple of other parents that also stopped particpating on my mind, before I flipped the coin. I stuck with a little longer, and then some people started taking it (and me) for granted. I'll miss the stories and that it made some people happy, but that's about it.

Demeur said...

Why is it that I'm always the last to the party? Just as things get good poof it's gone. What the king is dead? I guess this puts Graves in numbro uno position. I knew you'd wear him down Randal.

Guys, don't forget to jot a few notes between now and when the kids leave the nest lest great thoughts be lost down the Alzheimer memory hole.

Susan Tiner said...

I thought you were talking about Jerry Brown.

Randal Graves said...

charles, play 'em if you've got 'em.

tom, I think both bands' debuts came out in 1970. Of course, Forest never managed to appear on the Simpsons.

cormac, sorry man, it was the acid.

SWA, you see the price of the meds? Generics aren't available yet.

susan, Terry Jones told me you were killed!

BB, thanks. It's difficult coming up with crap each week, which is why I think I simply rewrite the same thing.

liberality, forsooth, maiden of the fens - shite!

cormac, well if you hadn't started asking for gold doubloons.

demeur, who are you? Why am I here? First yeomanry, now Stockdaleitis.

susan t., bwahahaha!

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

Crap, I missed a chance to take pot-shots at you.



Cormac Brown said...

"cormac, well if you hadn't started asking for gold doubloons."

Wha? Did you just mix me up with Glenn Wreck???
