Default OT-Especially for Gillian

I can hear the groans already



A traveler in the Himalayas came upon a great gathering
of holy men, philosophers, and aspiring Buddha's.

They represented all aspects of belief and seeking,
including one aged guru
who was reputed to have achieved nirvana by subsisting
entirely on a diet of asparagus.

Our traveler was astonished, when,
in a sudden mountain shower,
all of the participants in this conclave were drenched,
except the asparagus-eater.
The rain simply avoided falling on him, as if he were roofed.

"That's incredible", said the traveler.
"Not at all", said his native guide,
"for is it not sung of in America, even on Broadway,
'Bliss is the awning of the Sage of Asparagus' .

Groans - more than groans here, that was a terrible one!


So terrible that I was forced to forward it to a dozen people. Who have been
warned to aim their rotten tomatoes toward Lucille, not me.
