Another Stellar Review...I Think!

Recommended Posts

Here's the whole poem:

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:

All mimsy were the borogoves,

And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!

The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!

Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun

The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:

Long time the manxome foe he sought --

So rested he by the Tumtum tree,

And stood awhile in thought

And as in uffish thought he stood,

The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,

Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,

And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! and through and through

The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!

He left it dead, and with its head

He went galumphing back.

"And has thou slain the Jabberwock?

Come to my arms, my beamish boy!

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"

He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:

All mimsy were the borogoves,

And the mome raths outgrabe.

The professor in our English class had us substitute real words in place of Lewis' made up words- which led to a lot of different interpretations of Lewis work! The same could probably be said for this review of the Raspberries (thus my reason for bringing it up). What a bunch of whiffling :lol:

Whatever the intent of this article, it will forever be lost on me as this is what the link leads me to:

Appaerently somebody at WordPress really misunderstood... or understood... them...

And as for student 250 out of 250, he would have been the valedictorian, but he died one night cramming in the study hall... and nobody noticed since he was the only person who entered that room in his four years... ;)

I'm sorry I missed it, after all this great advance notice.

Now now, people, what is it you guys are doing, knocking the fine j-school graduates of Kent State...

Oh well, you know what they say around these parts: "Kent read, Kent write, Kent do arithmetic, Kent State."

This part:

The combination short ventage nationally into 1972 together with a giant nun calledâ€Pushiness To a fare-you-wellâ€,

might be talking about "a big hit called "Go All the Way"

giant=big

nun=hit, as in discipline in a Catholic school

??? :P
