We now, in Our wisdom, do appoint Severn as Emissary and Commisary Plentypenitentiary With and Without Portbottle to The Duchy of Grand Fenwick and We authorize him to act in whatever way seems most reprehensible at the time, as long as he continues to pay for his orifice from Us.

Just what are we getting esteemed up about?

Rap'll be disappointed, bless his appointed little head, as I haven't much use for any shiny rocks that don't play LPs. I don't know what I like better about precious metals, gemstones and jewelry, the fact that the stuff tastes so good or the fact that it keeps me warm at night when I cuddle up to it. In short, the stuff's highly overrated, so I'll have none to send. You'll have to test my mettle without much metal by meddling in other ways and probably giving yourself a medal for your efforts.

And what will become of all those weapons due or overdued to olddude. It is my belief that no man should posses more arms than, say, a squid. That he's prostituted himself for this mongrel whored of lethal stuff, begs the question ("Can I ask it? Huh? Huh? Can I, can I, can I, puhleeeze?") what he will DO with such an armory.

And I'm sad to say that the most I've been offered so far by the present regime is the post of Naval Attaché To Nepal, with no mention of salary, much less, amount of salary. "I'm the one who made you free", says Rap and I'm sure you're worth every penny of it....."
That's gratitude for you. But, as I said, I'm one who doesn't pick, and eschews precious stones and other like sucheries.....

In this, the sixth day of Our reign, the following is mandatory for the Health and Happiness of Our subjects:

First, that all shall be happy,
Second, that We should be happier than everyone else,
Thirdly, that everyone else has more money than We,
Fourthly, that contrary to the Olde Sayinge, money can buy at least a facsimile of happiness,

It is Therefore Ordered:

That all of you, Our subjects, shall within the next forty-five days (including weekend, holidays, holy days, sick days, personal leave days, feast days, famine days, Lent, Easter, and all times wherein the Earth Our Domain does rotate around upon its axis in a Solar Day (as defined by the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS) as 86164.098 903 691 seconds of mean solar time (UT1) (23h 56m 4.098 903 691s)), shall send to Us all wealth, valuta, jewelry, jewels, gold (that is, the element with atomic number 79 and having a standard atomic weight (±) (Ar) of 196.966569 and an electron configuration of [Xe] 4f14 5d10 6s1 or per shell 2, 8, 18, 32, 18, 1) and other inanimate rare and valuable things (as defined by the society in which Our subjects live).

Failure to comply with This, Our first ruling, shall call down upon those failing the Wrath of olddude who shall salt their fields, burn their hovels and huts, and otherwise cause unto them Annoyance Great, which shall not exclude the playing of the banjo at ungodly hours.

Given at My Seat Of Power this Sixth Day of Our Reign and the First Year of the New Calendar, by

Your Beloved Emperor

O, Master of all empirical and Empire-acal, whose Rap Id leads us by fast thinking. While we regale ya about regalia, here's a few suggestions:

We should gale ya a first time, for a start.

We need an official Empire Umpire with a supreme quart always at his or her side, and sighed with the Emperor when someone emps it up too high.

So that you don't become an Em-poorer, we need a trusty treasurer to watch over the money supply, seeing that prosperity flows freely to all of his predicated subjects and keep any of Rap's rapacity below capacity.

All would-be anthem composers, remember that Possum, that some folks eat raw some rhymes with "awesome". If one gets them mad, it tends to cause 'em claw some with their paw some, cause they don't like folks to boss 'em. But in the end, the finished song should be superior to even anything that Walt Kelly wrote for Pogo. Being a huge Pogo fan, Bill Day should head up the Anthem Judging Committee. The winning song will be premiered by olddude playing his old oud.

Give Mrs. Rap a Tiara Del Fuego that she can wear lower down.

Rap's crown should either come from Imperial Margerine or have at one time been worn by Clifton Chenier on tour. An occasional turban to give Rap a good wrap on his noggin with a large gemstone of some sort on the front.

Shouldn't we have some different faces on the coinage than the paper money? Chongo, for one, makes a lot of them.

Whaddaya think, folks?.......

Rap you know the book never published is in the anals / annals of the posts that Spaw posted under three different names.

I would begin with the Eureka post of waking up with profound inspiration.

Some come in sequence and a number f brain droppings would fill it out to the end.

It's news to me Sins! As a matter of fact he's been real happy lately and "Artie" has been a lot of company to him. Artie seems to be a real hoot to Cleigh and I just went in and looked and Artie is swingin' and Cleigh is grinning like always.........said they were both pretty happy!

I think we have an impostor here trying to stir up trouble. Cleigh has been really happy to since Cletus went cross-eyed staring at Artie's head bouncing and tail swinging. THAT really endeared him to Cleigh so I don't think that was for real at all!!!!

Spaw

Why should your Emperor settle for underlings when Chongx itself is available?

Your Emperor thanks you. Your Emperor herewith appoints and commissions, by revokable Imperial Writ, olddude as Enforcer and Bouncer Extraordinary w/Portfolio.

Your Emperor has done stranger things than sitting on an egg until it hatches, for Your Emperor is a retired librarian and dealt for many, many years with the unwashed patrons.
