To the Wise and Sagaceous Towne Crier:
How right you are, Oh experienced one, to know that the ET does not swallow such charlatain tactics as this "Zen" (who is this "Zen" anyway? Some great General in the West Indies? Some strange concoction stronger than my favourite brandy shrub?).
I do so wish to meet with you in Gotham City, for I have something I expressely purchased for you, and must give to you in person, if that can be arranged. Please send your response to my by private dispatch, and I will meet you where and when you will, God and Weather permitting.
Meanwhile, please share with me the fate of my fellow trader, the Otto Mani? Is he gone for evermore?
I remain, as always,
the English Trader
: : : : My dear and esteemed Twofers;
: Did you sweet things receive yesterday's carrier pigeon's letter re. Coke?
: Well, having read and inspired by that if Coke does all these things it may help me lose weight, too, I took a can of Diet Coke and returned to my post here, at the Board, and when I began reading your comments re. meeting with English Trader at the esteemed Bumppo's Tavern, I fell into a fit of laughter and spewed all that Diet Coke at the keyboard (ooops into my punched tin lantern).
: Ok you DocM, neither BillyGnome nor the Esteemed English Trader, who by the way, for a while did a stint as co-trader with the Turkish Trader Otto Mani (may she/he rest in peace) and who is now extremely experienced in spotting fake Zen-like meditations... are buying this tripping-the-universe-for-enlightenment bit!
: So please gather your carcasse from the entrance and come and set the table with me in case the English Trader can make his/her way down the frozen Hudson and join you, Gnome, and yours truly for a spat of merriment!
: Still choking and sputtering, Towne Crier
: : : : Ring ring Ring!
: : : : Yes indeed we have to meet at Bumppo's Tavern! So much to tell!
: : : : My brief stay in Gotham City has been extended to late mid February, and once again we have an opportunity to meet and pay homage to kegs of well aged ale!
: : : : Send a carrier pigeon in the direction of my post, where I sit and wave my lantern, and let's make a day and hour to meet at the said tavern!
: : : : Awaiting your dispatch
: : : : TC
: : : Sounds like a GREAT idea! But afore anybody can get into the place first we gotta drag the drunken Doc Mary outta the doorway.
: : : WHY does she ALWAYS collapse in the most inconvenient places when she gets into a drunken stupor?????????
: : : BillyGnome
: : I am NOT blocking the doorway, you maladjusted Munchkin!!
: : I happen to be in a deep Zen-like meditation. Ommm! *hic!*
: : Ommmm! *hic!*
: : Doc M
