Conference T shirts

The conference T Shirts went quickly as anticipated. Those of you who already told me--I saved you one, don't worry.

Those of you still wanting one--we're trying to see how many of you there are, so we can decide if we should do a second run. If we reach critical mass, we'll make another order. So let me know in the combox or via email if you are interested.


  1. Dale's toast.

    Ballade of Soporific Absorption

    Ho! Ho! Yes! Yes! It's very all well,
    You may drunk I am think, but I tell you I'm not,
    I'm as sound as a fiddle and fit as a bell,
    And stable quite ill to see what's what.
    I under do stand you surprise a got
    When I headed my smear with gooseberry jam;
    And I've swallowed, I grant, a beer of lot -
    But I'm not so think as you drunk I am.

    Can I liquor my stand? Why, yes, like hell!
    I care not how many a tossed I've pot,
    I shall stralk quite weight and not yutter an ell,
    My feech will not spalter the least little jot:
    If you knownly had own! - well, I gave him a dot,
    And I said to him, 'Sergeant, I'll come like a lamb -
    The floor it seems like a storm in a yacht,
    But I'm not so think as you drunk I am.

    For example, to prove it I'll tale you a tell -
    I once knew a fellow named Apricot -
    I'm sorry, I just chair over a fell -
    A trifle - this chap, on a very day hot -
    If I hadn't consumed that last whisky of tot! -
    As I said now, this fellow, called Abraham -
    Ah? One more? Since it's you! Just a do me will spot -
    But I'm not so think as you drunk I am.


    So, Prince, you suggest I've bolted my shot?
    Well, like what you say, and soul your damn!
    I'm an upple litset by the talk you rot -
    But I'm not so think as you drunk I am.

  2. Written by Sir J.C. Squire

    who had some connection or another with Chesterton.

    Dale's recitation of this was quite funny.

  3. He should have sung it. It's been set by Walter Ross.
