Kent -- Jim & 2air' have it right in sending you everybody's best wishes!

All things Spam can be found in its hometown, Austin, MN. I don't know that I could ever force myself through the hordes to the annual 'Spamfest.' Mmm-m-m, they even have a gift catalog at www.spam.com!

In March or April of 1967 I had the distinct privilege of seeing Otis Redding at the old San Antonio Auditorium at a multi-talent R&B revue. It was a crushing blow when his plane crashed into Madison's Lake Monona in December of that year. I took less note of a large singing family at the same show -- I think they were the Johnsons, Jacksons or something like that...

Ah Spam what a lovely thought as I sit here after drinking my first two glasses of "GoLytely." Make that glass three the buzzer just went off. GoLytely, my a-- this stuff should be named colon blow and soon I will explode.
Somewhere in an office on a tenth floor there was a meeting of several suited men who sat around this table trying to come up with a suitable name for this stuff. I can imagine there was a dry erase board sitting in the corner and one of the suits was manning the board. Each of the seated suits were giving suggestions like: Evaco, or Flushamor, one rather descriptive suggestion was "Clear Bowel Developer" not very clever but these were suits after all. By lunch time eighteen names were listed on the dry erase board and all were satisfied that they had enough suggestions so they decided to break for lunch and take up the matter after filling their stomachs. (Glass number four, soon I will have to take a break myself.) After returning to the meeting room they began arguing over the names on the board. Flushout was popular but did not have that feel good feeling Flushaway and Evacaway along with Rout were all part of the front runners but none had a clear lead. Time was quickly fading and soon the label makers would need the name. Jackets came off and the ties were loosened, in this atmosphere the niceties and politeness fell away. Soon these suits were at each others throats until one stood up on a chair and yelled "STOP" let's just go lightly here. And the room fell quiet. Then a whisper of go lightly, go lightly, go lightly from each corner of the room and across the table. it began to sound like a chant. Go lightly, Go Lightly, Go Lightly, Go Lightly. Even the three suits who were on the floor in a choke arm and leg lock position joined in with the chant, Go Lightly, Go Lightly. The dry erase board suit went up to the dry erase board and erased all the other names and in the typical suit spelling put up "GoLytely." The room began to giggle and then the giggles turned into a roar of laughter. (Glass number 5 and explosion number 1) Each of them understood that this is the perfect name, Golytely and for the first time in their lives they allowed themselves to have some irony and humor enter into their stoic being. (GoLytely here comes explosion #2)

Chaplain, watch out! Sounds to me like they're just trying to give you a major case of himroids (well, it ought to spelled this way! or maybe hymnroid, oops, sorry Chaplain) so they can get their scapels in you in another place....which is about as much fun as I can remember.

I'm doing my Voodoo dance for you here in Vegas. Get well, like right now!

You owe me a new keyboard...and monitior. Note to self, Don't read CK's reports in this thread while eating lunch. Uncontrolled laughter at his jokes and a mouthful of food can have intersting results.

Just "shared" (now that's another laugh-can't noone share this!) hubby's GoLytely routine. You are a fine spirit, seeing humor in some of this! God bless, and know our prayers are with you. ~G

I have just emerged from the basement bathroom a room which formerly was a haven to me and my dog. Now my dog will not go near this bathroom, nor will any living member of any species. The good news though, is that Golytely worked and worked and worked. I am proud to say that now I may possess the cleanest bowels of any member of this forum. Mark this thread if you ever have any questions on how to clean your bowels here is the answer: Golytely. I plan to develop recipes after the surgery. There will be Golytely Salsa, Golytely Rum Balls, Golytely Pasta Sauce, and lastly a real crowd pleaser a Golytely Spamwich Sandwich.

When towing your Airstream to the hospital for surgery, be sure to
use a tow vehicle with sufficient horsepower.....

well ck,

having taken and given golytely myself....

don't ya feel lighter?

now that you're almost done goin'?

i've seen others attempt to mask the magic elixer...

there is no food item that can truely hide the trademark salty-soapy taste....

it has been tried.

mag citrate and gin....is a better combo.

even dylan thomas was compled to lament....

oh and carlin is too funny, when WILL jesus bring the pork chops?

"do not 'golytely' into that good night,
old age should burn and rave at close of day;
rage, rage against the dying of the light.

though wise men at their end know dark is right,
because their words had forked no lightning they
do not golytely into that good night.

good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
rage, rage against the dying of the light.

wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
and learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
do not golytely into that good night.

grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
rage, rage against the dying of the light.

and you, my father, there on the sad height,
curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
do not golytely into that good night.
rage, rage against the dying of the light."


and pass the t.p.


cheers
2air'

Now there's a distinction. Gives me something to shoot for.

Things I have learned by reading this thread:

1-DON'T accept a Golytely milkshake from Chaplain Kent.
2-George Carlin has a true way with words.
3-Otis and the Elevators had their ups and downs.
4-Leo needs to invest in rubber sheets for his Globetrotter.
5-Veteran Airstreamers should wear clothing while golfing.
6-Zeppelenium is continuing his truncated search for intelligent life on earth.

So, since this has turned into the yard sale of the Airstream world, Iíve got a completely useless question. Is anybody running Boinc software?
