Speaking of which (orientation,that is) , one of the most sought-after costumes or disguises in the San Francisco area is Larry Craig : the wide-stance, toe-tapping Senator who didn't exactly come out of the closet, so much as out of the stall in a mens' room: not realizing the other gentleman he was signalling was a cop. The Senator is now a sort of folk hero or figure of fun (take your pick) to the Alternative Lifestyle Community .
Speaking of Alternative Lifestyles , these Trolls reminded me of a story I read yesterday. It seems some sort of Internet Trolls have been sending out tens of thousands of Spam E mails on behalf of a certain presidential candidate from the Southwest - who will, I suppose disavow them.The "spammings" all tell wonderful stories about the candidate,how he is leading in the polls,etc.
These Virtual Trolls are operating out of The Netherlands, Nigeria, Indonesia,and various countries of what used to be the Balkans : using the same servers the so-called 9/11 Truthers use (a coincidence, no doubt)- and apparently sharing E mail lists with the Nigerian scammers.
Don't look so surprised ! You KNEW I was going to put her picture here !
Yes, I have seen more flattering pictures of Senator Clinton,and I'm sure she is a very nice lady. Who knows ? She might be just what America needs right now .....BUT, If she shows up on my porch with her Trick or Treat bag, I'm going to lock all the doors, turn out the lights, and hide under the covers !
And now, for your Hallowe'en pleasure, a song I wrote , many years ago , while camping in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey : birthplace of the legendary
Deep in the Jersey Barrens
Outside the town of Leeds
There lived a lonesome widder-
No man to tend her needs.
Then, one All Hallows' Evenin'
When the moon was pale an' white
She cried : “I'd let ol Satan hisself
Come share my bed tonight.”
Keep to the middle of the trail,friend
When the moon is pale an' white-
An' build up the fire at the ol' campsite:
The Devil walks tonight !!
Ol' Scratch he come a courtin'-
Kept her dancin' till the dawn:
One year later to the day
The Devil's child was born !
Oh, when she saw that baby
The widder give a wail:
He looked just like his Daddy-
Complete with horns an' tail !!
The moral of this story
Is easy fer to see :
The Devil's always willin'
To furnish company !
So, gentlemen be on your toes:
Better treat them ladies right-
Or that ol' Jersey Devil
Might take yer place some night !!
