    "Nonsense Alphabet" - Lounge Style

    I've decided that rather than work on the 3 or 4 things that probably should get done today (including preparing to give our bi-annual anti-harassment briefing to employees), I've decided to update obscure 19th century children's literature.

    Edward Lear wrote some truly kick-ass children's stories and nonsense back in the 1870's. A wonderful artist, he entertained his friend's children with limericks, nonsense alphabets, funny drawings, and bizarre stories. (See link below for a truly memorable and droll story about four children who sailed around the world).

    http://www.bencourtney.com/ebooks/le....html#children

    My mom used to read to me from one of the "nonsense" alphabets when I was very small, and it stuck with me.

    Anyway, rather than do actual work, I've spent the last twenty minutes or so coming up with the beginnings of a "Lounge Alphabet" - I've started this, and now it is up to you guys to finish it.....



    "A" is for "asploding bikes" - the ones that are made of carbon fibers
    Beware of Treks (are they good?) because they frequently kill their riders.

    "B" is for "beer" and "booze" and libations of all descriptions
    By the bottle or case, we're all "Lost In Space", with or without a prescription...

    “C” is for “Corgi,” that wonderful hound, so brave and smart and clean
    “C “is also for “canine” – just don’t bring up the ones that are mean.

    “D” is for “Dumbass” - the clinically clueless - the subject of Lounger ridicule
    Loungers are cool, we’re very had to fool, even if our brains are relatively miniscule.

    “E” is for “Eclectic” - which Loungers certainly are - we offer a broad spectrum of advice and knowledge
    Our opinions are free, and I think you’ll agree, posting here is much cheaper than college.

    “F” is for “Funnerest Weekend,” a thread for the ages, involving booze and women of high breeding
    Straight from the mouth of our Rabelais of the South, it made for salacious (if slightly sticky) reading.

    “G” is for Gutfiddle, see “F” above, now married and with a kid of his own
    Still pushing the limits on Facebook, with nudity that is truly from “down home.”

    “H” is for “Hookers and Blow,” that standby of Lounge humor, long-lived and never ever stale
    “H” also stands for “HTFU” – a warning for Loungers who are heading toward “fail.”
