Image As an old American comic (Red Skelton) use to say " If I have brought a smile to your face today, then I have accomplished what I set out to do"

I didn't remember where I got it from and now that you mention it since I was a kid when Red was on.... but that has been my goal in life forever, If I make one person smile/laugh each day I have accomplished my goal, if I make more than one feel that way then I have made my day and I too will smile/laugh.

I do not remember the last time I did not accomplish my goal, I may not make everyone smile, but I intend on making someone smile.

JUST DUST

PS - Yes Ogre's are strange creatures
TO BE OR NOT TO BE..... NOW WHAT KIND OF QUESTION IS THAT??? TO BE OF COURSE!!!!!

lol Tater, that little song is exactly what it says, and they tanned Clyde's hide and hung it on the shed :wink:
Here's one for you by Rolf Harris......The court of king caractacus

Now the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus, were just passing by.
All together, now the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus, were just passing by.
Now the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus, were just passing by.
Now the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus, were just passing by.

Now the noses on the faces of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus, were just passing by.
All together, now the noses on the faces of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus, were just passing by.
Now the noses on the faces of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus, were just passing by.
Now the noses on the faces of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus, were just passing by.

Now the boys who put the powder on the noses on the faces of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus, were just passing by.
[Repeat 4 times]

Now the fascinating witches who put the scintilating stiches in the britches of the boys who put the powder on the noses on the faces of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus, were just passing by.
[Repeat 4 times]

Now if you want to take some pictures of the fascinating witches who put the scintilating stiches in the britches of the boys who put the powder on the noses on the faces of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus...

...you're too late! Because they've just... passed... by!

This song was written in Perth, Western Australia, in 1960. Rolf was working at a television station with an American named John D Brown and, thinking it was crazy to be singing Christmas songs about snow and ice when the temperature was around 100 degrees Farenheit, they wrote this song.



Early on one Christmas Day, a Joey Kanga-roo
Was far from home and lost in a great big zoo
Mummy, where's my mummy, they've taken her a-way
We'll help you find your mummy son, hop on the sleigh


[Verse:]
Up beside the bag of toys, little Joey hopped
But they had'nt gone far when Santa stopped
Un-harnessed all the reindeer and Joey wondered why
Then he heard a far off booming in the sky


[Chorus:]
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
.. On his Aus-tra-lian run


Pretty soon old Santa began to feel the heat
Took his fur-lined boots off to cool his feet
Into one popped Joey, feeling quite OK
While those old man kangaroos kept pulling on the sleigh


Joey said to Santa, Santa, what about the toys
Aren't you giving some to these girls and boys
They've all got their presents son, we were here last night
This trip is an extra trip, Joey's special flight


Soon the sleigh was flashing past, right over Marble Bar
Slow down there, cried Santa, it can't be far
Come up on my lap son, and have a look around
There she is, that's mummy, bounding up and down


Well that's the bestest Christmas treat that Joey ever had
Curled up in mother's pouch all snug and glad
The last they saw was Santa headed northward from the sun
The only year the boomers worked a double run
