The Oubliette is back to running at what passes for normal, as the Imperial Torturer and Spouse have returned from their annual sojourn Down South.

However, the Imperial Torturer is suffering from the Dreaded Lurgy so Spouse is looking after the inmates and miscreants in the meantime. He's more tender hearted than what I am and lets them get away with a little more than usual......two peas each for dinner, for example, when they are normally only allowed one pea to share between two inmates.

We wouldn't want those poor souls to suffer from over-feeding and its associated ills, would we?

Some time ago We permitted Our band to march in London, England to commemorate the coronation of Our subject Queen Elizabeth II (whom We call Lizzy). The video is of Our band marching on the Mall in London. Yes, We permit drums and other minor instruments in Our band solely for musical balance, but We know (as you should) that brass instruments and especially the trumpet and its sisters such as the flugelhorn and bugle are, truly, God's instruments.

We have commanded the Imperial Brass Orchestra to empty their spit valves on the Imperial Ignoramus. This is to be done per omnia saecula saecularum or until we command otherwise. We have no quarrel with capos unless they become insufferable and style themselves as Capo di Tutti Capi.

I suppose I shall send The Emperor a few good thoughts, even though I doubt their efficacy.

For many years, I have been sending evil, wicked, and destructive thoughts to people I don't like and, as far as I know, not a single one of them has dropped dead in his/her tracks as a result. Witness the fact that my ex-wife is still among the living. My despised former boss is dead, but he was old, smoked two packs of Marlboros per day for thirty years, and had already had a quadruple bypass by the time I went to work for him. So he doesn't count.

So, if I know for a fact that bad thoughts don't work, why should I think good thoughts would behave differently?

However, as stated above, I shall attempt to do the good thought thing anyway. All I have on my morning agenda is lawnmower work and that always causes my mind to get stuck in bored-repetitive-stupid-thought mode, so I shall attempt to steer the stupid thoughts in Emperor Rap's general direction. That would be northwest, give or take a few degrees, and with a range of roughly 2,050 miles (3,300 KM).

Jolly good news, Sire!

The banjo ensemble continues apace, although it still doesn't have a tuner......not that it matters, because it's difficult to tell whether they are in tune anyway.

We have been thinking of adding a bagpipe band, what do you think? The dulcet tones of the pipes would drown out the wails of the tortured miscreants quite well, we think.

My dear subjects! It has indeed been some time since We last addressed you as Our time has been filled with chirugeons and others. But We are doing well and ask you to continue to send Us good thoughts. Soon, indeed, We hope to be released from medicine's durance vile and allowed to resume Our benevolent ways so that you, Our subjects, can continue to thrive -- save, of course, those in Our oubliette. We ask the Imperial Torturer to continue the banjo, accordion, and lute trios that entertain those therein so well.

Well, considering that they're all chained to walls, locked in stocks, or tied to beds of nails, there's not much "running" to it, is there? It's pretty unlikely that the Imperial Torturer will return from her folk festival to find that the inmates have painted the walls puce or rearranged the furniture in some configuration which she finds objectionable.

In memory of the passing of the Imperial Naysayer, We herewith declare a period of thirty Earth days, or seven hundred and twenty rising and settings of the Sun, of mourning, to commence immediately.

During this time there will be no needless mirth, no needless frivolity, no needless music or song or both. During this period all of our subjects will wear black armbands, personal linens, hatbands, and weep into black handkerchiefs. The prisoners in the Imperial Oubliette will eat nothing but black food and drink naught but black water during this time.

Ritual mourning suicide is expressly forbidden under pain of death, as is ritual scarification and self-injury. Weeping and gnashing of teeth shall be kept to a minimum.

The late Imperial Naysayer would have wanted it that way.

We further declare that from this time forward this date shall be known throughout Our Realm as "Imperial Naysayer Day."
