This being the week that we are celebrating DON FIRTH'S 71st birthday, I'm suggesting that we give him the honorary title as "THE MAYOR OF MUDCAT!" For justification, I need only suggest that you look at what he posted on the "NAKED BICYCLE RIDER" thread. If you need any further evidence of his crimes, take a look back in history at the "TALES OF WALT ROBERTSON" thread. Whatcha' think? Bob(deckman)Nelson

Haven't read them, but since I missed the birthday party, I'll vote anyhow. Don Firth is OK in my book!

What am I going to do about Texas? Now that's a hard one. . . .

Well, Gee! I'm not sure what all the office entails, but I'm trying to remember some of the policies advocated by Utah Philips back when he was running for president. They sounded pretty good to me than and they sound pretty good to me now. Until I thoroughly investigate the matter and prepare for any upcoming press conferences, I can state that after careful study of the photo of Armen Napoleon Stepanian, the Mayor of Fremont, I believe I can do pretty much fulfill the duties that he seems to be fulfilling.

Although it's been years since I sat on a curb with a bunch of stoned people. . . .

Taxes don't worry me.I'm applying for senior citizens exemptions any way.I'm in favor of a mayor that calls no meetings and levies no taxes and is in favor of free beer. Ale too, if available.

Don, if you are going to follow in Utah Phillips steps, then you must promise to do absolitely NOTHING if elected.

Except, of course, siting around drinking beer, scratching your balls, and belching.

As I recall, Utah Philips said that he would put a pool table in the Oval Office, and other than that, it was as rangeroger outlined it. It works for me. . . .

I firmly believe that in the principle that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it is broke, get someone who knows what they're doing and stay the hell out of the way while they fix it. When I was younger, people often told me that I should work hard and try to realize my full potential. Then it occurred to me that there were two possible problems with that idea. First, what if I don't have any potential? And second, if I do have a lot of potential and I go ahead and realize it, it would really cut into my sittin' around time.

Those who are familiar with him will understand when I say that I regard Onslow as my role model. It is these virtues that I plan to bring to office.

HMMMMM? We've got a candidate. A platform in progress. Maybe a campaign song soon. Seems we need a campaign chairman. I suppose we'd really get in trouble if you mentioned the TROLL again! I can see it now ... DON FIRTH FOR MAYOR! CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN... THE FREMONT TROLL! oh never mind.

By way of explanation:-- Onslow is a character in the Britcom "Keeping Up Appearances." He's Hyacinth's Bucket's (pronounce, she insists, "bouquet") brother-in-law. He occupies most of his time sitting in front of a TV set. His wardrobe consists of a nondescript pair of pants, a sweaty undershirt, and a baseball cap. When he moves, it's usually to scratch his ample belly or to take another swig from his can of beer, or (if he's feeling energetic) to reach forward and change the channel. Main vocalizations consist of "Oh, nice!" when something happens that he doesn't like, such as learning that Hyacinth is going to drop by; or "Daisy, bring me a beer!" Famous quote: after uttering the latter cry several times without result, he says, "Here I am! Completely surrounded by no beer!!!"

It is often said of Onslow that he is "bone idle." I feel that this should be the state of every politician. That way, there will be fewer foul-ups in the world, and those who know what they're doing can get on with doing what needs to be done.

So far so good with the manifesto Don, but one small thing has been nagging at my mind. At one General Election in the past, the British Official Monster Raving Loony Party (they could only be Brits) declared that if elected, they would raise the age of consent for sexual intercourse to sixty-five. Now before you get my vote, I want confirmation that you won't be taking that policy on board.

Give Onslow his due. In order to change the channel he has to slam on the top of the TV. A lot of effort there.

Wow, alanabit! I'd like to see 'em try to enforce that one! Nope, no blue laws under my administration. I do suggest, however, that you don't do anything to frighten the horses—unless it's horses that you fancy, in which case, you're on your own.

Party affiliation. . . . Hmm. Probably the Inertia Party. Their motto is, "You only go around once in life, so get all the rest you can." Sounds good to me. . . .

QUOTE ... " How much effort do you guys want someone to put forth?" We've often referred to Don as the "Firth of Forth!" (Oh, never mind) Bob (what untill you folks hear about the birthday cake Bride Judy ordered today).
