or boredom? I love E Gorey! He retired to cape cod and there is a tiny little museum there dedicated to him. I collect little hardback books by him when I find them.

I have several of the anthologies.

His stuff is so weird but it never fails to crack me up.

Maybe if I introduced Mo to the Wuggly Ump, Winnie wouldn't be quite so scary.

Of course, Beth!

Good point about winnie, Boomer. I also loved Where the Sidewalk Ends by Silverstein. And, my fav in that book was the trash one.

I know I know some poems, but think of them now.

Does anyone know the author of this little poem?

There was a little girl who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead
And when she was good she was very very good
And when she was bad she was horrid

I'm also looking for SHORT quotes or verse or snippets from other writing regarding people and their behavior - not necessarily horrid behavior - but all types of behavior.

Thanks!

Yes I know this well! It is about my daughter.

My personal fave is Shel Silverstein.

If you have to wash the dishes
And you drop one on the floor,
Maybe you won't have to wash the dishes anymore.

Slovenly Peter? "Anything to me is sweeter than to see shock-headed Peter" ?

I am insulted on behalf of all Slovenes. Why, it's a discrimination if not an outright racism. pffft!

OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD.

You mean someone posted something that wasn't true? On the internet?

Untruths are really even worse than misspellings, actually, I mean only a child would misspell words, right?
