The Vast Wasteland of Little Green Footballs

Saw this in one of my old Ogden Nash books and for some reason thought of Johnson:

No Bonds Today

Every time you buy a bond
Adolf has a stroke.
Why annoy Adolf?
Can't you take a joke?

Every time you buy a bond
Hirohito's harried.
Wouldn't you feel guilty
If he hara-karied?

Every time you buy a bond
There's Benitos pout.
Is anybody cad enough
to tease a stylish stout?

Every time you buy a bond
The Axites see red.
Don't irritate the Axites,
Buy a drink instead.

(p. 35, "Good Intentions")

Not forgetting his tiny stock of repetitive verbal ticks, including "bad craziness," "good grief," and "vicious personal attack."

Gagster: Don't forget "Heh".

Good grief, Bob- that was a vicious personal attack. There's a bad craziness going on here.

Chucky is Keith Olberdouche with a ponytail.

The Osprey,

Chucky's ponytail is in constant interface with Olby. And no more will I say, out of mercy to the reader.

Well, at least the horse pulled out.

Surely, Chuckles also has a post or two discussing the well-documented fact that all "teabaggers" are really racists who only oppose Obama because he's black.
