Thanksgiving

If there wasn't an America
'Twould be a shame and a sin,
For without it we'd have nothing
To keep the Americans in.

Be thankful indeed for America;
The land of the loud and the brash.
Give thanks they aren't living next door—
Why, the property prices would crash!

Give thanks, I say, for America—
Even unto your god if you must—
For without it, all the Americans
Would be over here, with us!

Hail the glorious, wonderful news!
To try to keep bums in its emptying pews,
The Church of England's gen'ral synod
Has decided the word of its perfect god
Was wrong—or maybe just lacking in tact.
So women can now wear mitred hats.
Isn't the Cee of Ee lovely? Who cares
That it had to be forced, and dragged by the hair?
It's marvellous news, that they now admit,
You don't need a penis to spout bull-shit.

So I had occasion to look up the spelling of Aldous Huxley's name a while back. (I can never, for some reason, remember whether it's 'Huxley' or 'Huxly.') I did it the obvious way: I typed it into Google, knowing it would correct me if I were wrong. (I wasn't, as it happens.)

Anyways, I learned this strange and interesting fact, from the right-hand side-bar where they put info-results for famous people and the like…

Aldous Huxley, Writer, Aldous Leonard Huxley was an English writer and a prominent member of the famous Huxley family. Best known for his novels including Brave New World and a wide-ranging output of essays, Huxley also edited … Wikipedia

Slight mirth ensued.

Mary Fallin doesn't like Teh military Gheys.
She's offended by their naughty wicked ways.
She saw 'em treated equal-like, and gettin' married-pay
And decided that they wouldn't, come what may.

Yep: It’s That Time O’ Year Again…

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen;
Said Let's light the neighbourhood
For the Christmas season.
Brightly, shone his Santa Claus—
The holly round his windows.
Lights adorned his roof and walls
And neon traced the h-e-e-dge-row.

You must place your trust in faith;
Believe in faith with all your heart.
You must keep your faith so you'll
Faith-fully play your proper part.

Trust's your compass, faith your sail.
Trust belief! Your faith demands it!
Trust belief, your sturdy anchor.
Faith's a must! Belief commands it!

Believe in faith and trust belief
And trust your faith with all your might.
Trust your beliefs, and you'll not fail—
For 'trust in faith' just sounds so right!
