  1. Ok, this is some poem from 1791 I ran across...I'm sure it meant something else entirely 200 years ago, but it still made me laugh.

    Johnie Lad, Cock Up Your Beaver
    1791 poem

    When first my brave Johnie lad came to this town,
    He had a blue bonnet that wanted the crown;
    But now he has gotten a hat and a feather,
    Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!

    Cock up your beaver, and cock it fu' sprush,
    We'll over the border, and gie them a brush;
    There's somebody there we'll teach better behaviour,
    Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!

  10. Go to edit profile. Down at the bottom it says "change tittle"

    Type in what you want it to say!
     
  11. It says new tittle. Sorry about that!
     
  12. Once again, the city revealed her hot steamy dark side. It was'nt a place for those who had led sheltered lives to hang about. Things going on in the shadows, things best not thought of, lest you give them rein to come to pass.

    It was a weird place, a place where you could get anything, except Alice and then some.






    It was a place where they liked their beavers, plumb worshipped them as a matter of fact!




    Oh well.



    It's better than worshipping possums, I suppose.
     
  13. Now who here is going to take initiative and cock up there beaver?!


    :)
