  • A while ago there was a song by a musician who specialises in musical doggerel of the vulgar kind. It went like this:
    " I'm the sorta' bloke that would like to think that if i
    could go back in time,
    Banjo an Henry an even Ned Kelly would all be good
    mates of mine,
    coz they're piss pots, poets and outlaws and I can
    relate to that and I can relate to their attitude too
    in a word Dilligaf!

    D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F.
    Dilligaf,
    and this is what it means:"

The water is absorbed by dust and dirt particles. Leave overnight for the water droplets to freeze, then thump the rug. The thwocka-thwocka dislodges the frozen dirt particles.

  • "The organization's proposed solution is to use purpose-built drones called Snotbots created through a partnership with the Olin College of Engineering that can trail whales near the surface of the ocean, while the actual research team ideally stays about a half mile back. The drone would fly above the surface of the water and the unaware whale, where it can cruise into the spout expelled from the whale's blowhole to collect a sample of whatever the whale is exhaling from its lungs, including snot that can then be analyzed."

  • Bilby is, as usual, a lode of useful information. I once went skiing in Chamonix, where les Guides des Alpes are universally admired, but I failed to understand the sense of their characteristic cries.

    They're famed for feats of derring-do
    But guides of the Alps are scholars too.
    It's knowledge they seek
    When they call from a peak
    And plaintively ask, "Beaudelaire, he who?"

  • Bonsoir Monsieur Bilby,
    Where are you, actuellement?
    I am back in Paris, being forced to write about such big fat frauds as Charles "Mr Spleen" Baudelaire.
    But in two more weeks I shall be free, free as a bird!
    Now I need to go favourite the word "wentletrap".
    Adieu !

    March 12, 2014

  • Meow.

  • Bilby, I wish you a happy new year. I am grateful for the comments you have given me. I have been slow to respond mostly because I could not figure out how to do it. I have been looking for an ongoing thread I could reply to but I have failed to find it, so now I have visited your dashboard. This seems rather roundabout, like exiting the house and ringing the doorbell again before replying, but it is all I can manage for the moment.

  • Thanks for jomo. It's perfect.

    December 16, 2013

  • I'm so glad you finally have a trilby, bilby!

    February 3, 2013

  • Trilby's match

    What a thrill it must be!
    Is it a crowning achievement?
    How can you match it?
    You are off on the right foot!

    February 3, 2013

  • At a yard sale this morning. I bought a trilby. Just thought y'all would be very happy to know that.

    "But Tomsky also gives readers good reasons to be on their best behaviour at hotels. Raise your voice and you may get key bombed. That's where Tomsky, a front desk agent, programs your room key in a way that virtually ensures you will be locked out at some point in your stay."

  • Baubles? Trinkets? I knew it! He really is the Santa Fox!

    November 23, 2012

  • So, seriously, how was Trieste?
    And I am crestfallen at the thought that I might not get a copy of that poetry 'zine. That I was promised. I'm only claiming what is rightfully mine. I suspect you are just holding out for some kind of quid pro quo. Which, fair enough, just say the word and I will be happy to send some kind of Parisian bauble or trinket winging your way.
    But I'm damned if I'm gonna post my street address here on Wordnik, and you have the vice of being nowhere else contactable, to my knowledge.
    It's an impasse.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  • I shall report on the status of fuflunnage in Trieste. Perhaps it was what kept old James Joyce there.

    October 1, 2012

  • I hear there are many kinds of coffee in Trieste (though my source claims it's hard to find kopi luwak).

    No word on the quality of the fufluns.
