This is a fishy tale :) based on Dave Barry's column Nov. 30, 2003 "For the herring impaired" which was inspired by the New Scientist site:

Iím happily
quite herring impairedó
canít see their wind break
when those fish speak, spake,
when water quakes.
No other thing
talks through itsí anus.
like this truly stinks.
Herring . . . men . . . links?
Thinking machines
hear herring cut cheeseó
Fast Repetitive
Tick or FRT.
True but silly!
Scientists swear . . .
Herring speak with Ďairí.
Iím thankful to be
quite herring impaired
to not speak so cheesed.
Herring, their gas sounds,
must appeal to males
who boast of it, wails,
harmonize in spells . . .
of stinky swells.

Iím happily
quite herring impaired.

RE Herring Impaired

I was running through your titles like a hare-brained lemming when THIS title caught my eye. Indeed, I thought. Really really catchy... and FUNNY too. Yup, gotta read that!!!

Glad I did.

Now THIS is somethihg ELSE!! THIS shows (pardon the expression) guts (and not, let us pray, fish guts!). I love your sense of humour. I really can't abide humorless poets and worse still, humorless critics.

Check out my AD for MY latest addition. It is just as bold as this and just as controversial. Bully for you!

I shall, of course, return to your lil' den of iniqity.

Smile :) :) :)
