More Selected 'Shorts--Definitely Not William Hung

I don't know.

Seems my non-verbal blogs get peoplemore excited than my verbose ones.

So, happy Year of the Pig.
You have to get really close to read the whimsical pig monogram.

And though you are from California, Happy New Year, William Hung

Give us a song.

Give us the whole shebang.

Oh yes, the New Moon and the start of the Chinese New Year. Happy Chinese New Year of the Pig, Ivan!

ivan said...

And you too LIz.

Ding Hao.

That's Cantonese, I think.

Donnetta Lee said...

Happy New Year! Chinese or otherwise. Oink. Donnetta

Gung Hay Fat Choy, Ivan. It's always fun when the party's at Ivan's.


ivan said...


Oink-oink as well.

Why, when they tried to teach me classics, did they introduce the Greek term "Peri-oikoy" to signify, "those from around here"?

I kept thinking "Peri-oink-oink."

I've forgotten what alliteration is, but we'll give it a shot.

Looking out at the sky, I see:


Then I pick up an old newspaper and I see the reviews:

Swine Lake

And Bay of Pigs

French-Canadian newspaper:
(Fr.) Pork ois?

Then back to the book:

I think, therefore I ham.

Why do I love these old chesnuts so?

...Should have said "water chesnuts."

Gung Hay Fat Choy. Is that what the new year's greeting is?

Sounds like a gay marine looking for a fat boy.

But that's rude, I suppose.

Gung Hay Fat Choy, everybody!

Did someone mention Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n Roll? Sounds like the 60s, Ivan!

ivan said...

Hi Liz,

The sex, drugs and rock'n'roll are in the post just behind this one.
I didn't get any comments from the Quarks--maybe I was starting to gross you guys out!--but some other writers seemed to like it.

I left a comment on Donnetta Lee's story. Mean no harm. Just trying to help out. She has the core of a really good story there.


ivan said...

It was in the middle-Seventies that this old rake of a teacher introduced to the class, not Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll--but New Guineans and their ways.

I had said, somewhat offhandedly, that throughout my travels, I observed that New Guineans have these really large penises.
This caught the attention of some.

Still high on the previous night's vodka, I had said, "Ladies,ladies, the boat for Port Moresby doesn't leave until two p.m. on Tuesday."

No wonder I had such a checkered career in teaching!

Donnetta Lee said...

"I think; therefore, I ham." Now, I really like that bit of philosophy. Like the way it rolls over the snout when I say it. And to all: Gung Ho, Chop Suey, oh, whatever...Donnetta

ivan said...


Love it. Cracked me up.

And a Gung-ho Pressed Duck to everybody as well.
