The Lurking Nose!

In icy Nosevember, as the west wind blows
As mercury plummets and shutters close
As candles flicker their final throes
What lurks nearby, do you suppose?

Ruh-rohs!

From highs or lows, in grim repose
Its steady, strident sniffing grows
Like tell-tale hearts in tales of Poe’s
And where it comes from, no one knows.

Yesss, I yam eeen-VEEEES-ee-bulhs.

So heed this warning, to all those
Who seek out warmth for frozen toes
Where icy moistness sometimes goes,
Beware the chill of … THE LURKING NOSE!

We Take You Now to King Neptune Memorial Speedway

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Atlantianapolis 500, and if you’ve just joined us, it’s been a thrilling race so far.  In a stunning upset, odds-on favorite Mario Clamdretti dropped out of the race when his 300-seahorsepower racer crashed on the far turn.  And as we enter the final laps, I see that current leader Ridley McFlatback is getting the signal from his pit crew to come in for service …

Check my left flipper; it's running a little hot.

I hear he’s got endorsement deals with Shell Oil AND Turtle Wax, Brinke G.

This is NOT a good way to start off the week, Alexandro G.

I *think* the Japanese are kicking our asses again?

But I can’t understand what this little edamame bean is saying, so I can’t be sure.

Help a sister out with the translayshe?

I Gotta Get Outta This Racket

"I can’t take this off-the-wall job anymore. It’s not my fault; I try to give good service, but I’m hamstrung all the time. I hoped I could court a sports career, but I guess I don’t have the … nerve."

One of these things is not like the others ...

Game, set and match, Stephanie T.

"I won’t let them get away with ANYTHING. I’ll make sure they eat their lunchabuhls and don’t watch too much T.V."

"They won’t get out of control. Heck, I’ll SIT on them if need be."

Digging to China may be the only way out, Staci S.!

No, I’m not speaking in the Swedish Chef voice again. I’m simply reporting on this ingenious robot tennis ball-hurling contraption. This Dachshund’s Saturday night is aaaaaall set.

Elizabeth G., save your arm-thowing muscles for other things. Like commenting.
