:lol: Botheration!

It's true though - there's someone out there for all of us. And a good laugh is priceless :wink:

Image Brilliant, pooh! I thoroughly enjoyed them! If it's OK with you, I'd like to save them to Documents, so that I can read them again?

I'm going to need a swat team, ready to mobilize, street maps covering the whole of florida, a pot of coffee, 12 jammy dodgers and A FEZ.

THE GLOOB OF THANNOOK - What next?

(It's a one in a million chance.
But if you don't buy a ticket, you won't win the raffle!)

Eight lines to a verse,
Eight verse, to a chapter.
Eight chapters a book,
Filled with sorrow and laughter.
Eight lessons for children,
The audience I'm reaching,
Without sounding glib,
From the pulpit, not preaching.

To the Great Colin Smythe,
I'll email the book,
And add in a sweetener,
If he'll just have a look.
No laughter or tears,
And the Gloob he not rate,
To Alzheimer's Disease,
Ten pounds I'll donate.

But if it is published,
There's demand for these primers,
All profits received,
Should go to Alzheimer's.
For fortune and fame,
I really don't crave,
So all royalties,
I'll willingly waive.

:idea:

A thought inspired by pooh's genius and generosity...

We have other writers and artists on here who do fantasy poetry or prose (like the Gloob not necessarily Discworld, but for example Cheery, Beth, Keith and mspanners and Bogieman too, spring instantly to mind as directly inspired by Terry) so would it be possible perhaps to collaborate and do an illustrated loosely fantasy-oriented anthology as a fund-raiser? Perhaps include the CA bods as well (although we have some on here anyway, but spread the net as it were :wink: ) as both sites are Random House supported?

Afterthought edit: I still have a full set of licensed print design software so can donate typesetting skills and keep initial compilation and layout costs down and if Cheery wants to chip in with that then fantastic as time is something I'm not so 'rich' in these days :wink:

First time I heard the word 'Botheration' was on a Maid Marion episode, written by Tony Robinson who also reads and had a minor role in Hogfather ...

Had to put in the Pratchett connection thing there!

Btw Botheration was said by a wimpy Guy of Gisbourne!

If this was published for any reason I'd buy it! But for Alzheimer's definitely my grandma had Senile Dementia - not quite the same thing - but it was horrible watching her lose her memory. She reverted back to her childhood.

I truly feel for Lyn and Rihanna ... it must be terrible for them to watch a man they both love suffer!
