Yeah, Teresa, but we didn't need a rhyme for "found". Found was already there to rhyme with ground 2 posts earlier. I put in 2 lines to get things back on track again...

"I turned around and thought I saw......
(Dear God! How could it be?)
A monkey with a twisted paw,
Was grimacing at me!


See?

Anyway...we now have...

The monkey's paw held out for more...

To which I shall add:

I cried, "Avaunt, ye beast!"


The rythm, you see is:

"a-one, a-two, a-three, a-four
a-clippety, cloppety, cluff!
a-five, a-six, a-seven, an-eight
a-buggering Hillary Duff"

or something like that.

Please carry on. :-)

Okay, I know this isn't a true obituary, but maybe it is for this national sport, at least as we know it at the professional level. I also know that few folks outside of Canada (or Canadians) are interested, so please bear with me, or skip to the next thread.

For two years, the players and owners have been arguing back and forth over a new binding agreement for wages, bonuses, job security, etc. The most recent contract expired this past spring/summer, and since then the owners have locked out the players... now, on the eve of cancelling the entire season, the players' union has gone back and said, "Okay owners, you can get what you want (sorta)." But, the owners rejected that offer, wanting a little more....

that being said... does anyone care? as far as hockey fans like myself, I mean...

Though my ale is quite easy to swallow
So down with your ale
And up with your tail
And the next line will certainly follow.

So, to carry on:
