Fuck I Hate Tags

I hate being tagged. In the first place who the flying fuck came up with this bullshit idea and secondly why do people keep doing it? In the former I have no idea but I would like to kick them in the genitals if I could find out. In the latter I suppose that some people actually like doing them, and some people do them because they haven’t anything else to write about, but I am doing it because Starbender asked and she is just so damned sweet  that I am doing it but in my own fashion. The Tag was to go to page 123 of the closest book and count down five sentences then write verbatim the next three and list the title and author.

Here’s the deal. I am going to page 123 write down lines six through ten and the first person that can name me the title of the poem, book, and author has my undying admiration.

He doesn’t have a place to put a collar.

And I’ll admit it’s rather hard to lead him,

And he cannot hear you call

For he has no ears at all.

But it doesn’t cost a single cent to feed him.

Bet you all thought that it would be a joke from a copy of Hustler. But what’s your guess?

  1. double tail dog
    http://www.icdc.com/~roadkill/silverstein/dog.html

    Would you like to buy a dog with a tail at either end?
    He is quite the strangest dog there is in town.
    Though he’s not too good at knowing
    just exactly where he’s going,
    He is very very good at sitting down.
    He doesn’t have a place to put a collar,
    And I’ll admit it’s rather hard to lead him,

    But it doesn’t cost a single cent to feed him.

    He cannot bite, he’ll never bark or growl,
    Just scratch him on his tails, he’ll find it pleasing.
    But you’ll have to take him out
    For twice as many walks,
    And I’ll bet that you can quickly guess the reason.

  6. have mirror, can do ANYTHING…but i didn’t….trying to find out where i got it….am at work so she who must be obeyed is looking on puter at home…i’m searching anyway…i’ll find out where it is, i do know it was one of those free avatar sites…just can’t remember if it was a fairy or fanatasy…i’ll find it but, persitance beats resistance….

    Where there’s a will there’s a way. That’s why I haven’t told my wife where I have my will. Her way might be painful. Pure Evyl

    And how the heck do you get an avatar on WP?

    Glad to find another Silverstein fan. As for the avatar. On the wp dashboard go to users then your profile then upload and crop your pic. It sounds like a pain but it is virtually painless. – Pure Evyl
