Is this the one where he sexually exploited all of the women seagulls?

Sorry. There is so much talk about stuff like that the last few. Sigh.

I like JLS. Here this tells about part four;

Part Four: Why Now? — Jonathan Livingston Seagull

Well, Rap, I am so embarrassed to find out I have not been keeping up with Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I will look into that immediately.

And while I am at it, I think I will suggest my book club read and discuss some Rod McKuen poetry. That would be so groovy.

Oh, and, btw, considering your interest in Humpty Dumpty, there is even more to think about....yes, indeed......a conspiracy theory......

HUMPTY DUMPTY WAS PUSHED!

I hope you can crack the Humpty Dumpty case wide open, Boomer.

I think this is the misuse of jargon.

AND it could be political.

Compared to Humpty Dumpty, Rod McKuen's work is naive...without rhyme and rhythm. It also fails to evoke the deep thinking that Humpty Dumpty demands from the reader. Do you think Rod Mc could explain the poem, "Jabberwocky" with the skill and erudition that Humpty did in Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass"?

Humpty goes way back before Alice.

And I think the notion that it's political in today's definition of "political" is basted on questionable facts!

If nonce had not been introduced into our language, we would be without treasures such as:

Who put the bomp in the bomp bah bomp bah bomp
Who put the ram in the rama lama ding dong
Who put the bop in the bop shoo bop shoo bop
Who put the dip in the dip da dip da dip

or

Ob La Di, Ob La Da

or

Zip a Dee Do Dah
