Philosophical humor...?
(so where is his computer...?)


Twain wrote with a singular wit,

I know not others as I sit here and spit,

I would like to think I have a sense,

A sense of what you ask,

Why humor of course, beyond that I am quite dense…


To laugh is to find humor in all things,

No longer tied am I to mom’s apron strings,

Perhaps I get my humor from a life of strife,

So most of it is self-defacing,

Tis MY humor to you I do bring…


Smile and the world does smile with you,

Frown and the world pukes brown,

Better we all get a clue,

Smiling is what the world does to go round,

Much in this world to about frown,

Just keep happy thoughts and smile,

Let them all wonder what if anything in your head goes round…

Not a lot of people can get from Twain to spitting in one line. It's a beautiful thing.

One man's humor is another man's . . . Oh, hell, humor is humor even if no one is laughing. (I laughed at this one.)

Tis MY humor to you I do bring…

Tis certainly is, and we thank you.

PS You are obviously much older than you say you are, having that personally autographed picture of Twain. Would you consider selling it??!! And might you have the Three Stooges' autograph, too?

You are one of the few that does make me here :)))) we go you did it again!!

But without my frown I might lose my crown of the "bitchiest Bewitched Bitch" to some members on this continent!!

One of my favorite quotations of Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain is "Be good and you will be lonesome." Humor is one of the things a person should strive for, the other two being stable in mind and eveness of temper. Ed, your bassakward rhymes always put a smile on my face. It takes talent to do what you do. You probably had a sidekick in your childhood, one of you Tom Sawyer and the other Huck Finn. Whitewash any fences?
