Racer, I know that it is your duty to keep this thread 'pure', but your title implies being 'moderate'.

No, this thread is Parallax's domain. He is kInG m0dUlAt0r.


I will always defer to his wisdom and experience.


Besides, he has a bigger hammer than me.

You and Mark and Mr P will have to have a conference on the best 'moderate' way to deal with bacon haters.
Inciting violence is certainly not the best way.
Making fresh bacon is violence?

btw. I'm glad you got rid of your self-imposed title of, what was it, some sort of counsellor? That title was deceptive, deceitful, diabolical.


Guidance Counselor.




But.


I.


Didn't.


Change.


It.




It was magically revised. I left it and went off to work. When I got home I popped in to see if anyone needed counseling and noticed the change.


It was magic I tell ya.


Magic.




And hey, now I'm "Loyal"

All this trouble....from a squirrel that just wanted to see some bacon. I think squirrels get an unfair bad reputation.


Of course.


I mean, Jeep wiring harness is part of their regular diet, correct?




Who would ever fault a squirrel for eating a Jeep wiring harness?

I can confirm that squirrels also like the taste of vintage car upholstery.

Bert?


Poor?


Nah.




He has us. Our friendship has value no money can buy.


And we have bacon.


Bacon for everyone.


Bacon for Bert.


Should he want some.

I'd say I was poor...


I've been a wild rover for many a year
And I spent all my money on cameras and lenses,
And now I'm returning with photos in great store
And I never will play the wild rover no more.

And it's no, nay, never,
No nay never no more,
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more.

I went to a camera store I used to frequent
And I told the clerk my money was spent.
I asked her for credit, she answered me "nay
Such a custom as yours I could have any day."

And it's no, nay, never,
No nay never no more,
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more.

I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
And the clerk's eyes opened wide with delight.
She said "I have cameras and lenses of the best
And the words that I spoke sure were only in jest."

And it's no, nay, never,
No nay never no more,
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more.

I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done
And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son.
And if they caress (forgive) me as ofttimes before
Sure I never will play the wild rover no more.

And it's no, nay, never,
No nay never no more,
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more.

I know this one doesn't rhyme (as it should) but still:

Hush, little baby, don't say a word.
Papa's gonna buy you a Nikon camera

And if that Nikon camera breaks,
Papa's gonna buy you a better Canon

And if that better Canon snaps,
Papa's gonna buy you the best Pentax

And if that Pentax makes bad pictures,
Papa's gonna buy you a nicer lens

And if that nicer lens isn't long enough,
Papa's gonna buy you a super tele

And if that super tele isn't sharp,
Papa's gonna buy you a big old tripod

And if big old tripod is bulky to carry
Papa's gonna buy you a huge camera bag

And if that huge camera bag is too empty,
Papa's gonna buy you more lenses

And if those lenses make you happy,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
