Office poetry--

Backstory--my old boss, name of Sam, puts up a "Quote of the Day" on the dry-erase board by his cubical.

He went to the same reading conference I did, IRA. He's still there, frantically updating the customer information databases to keep up with the 3000 or so new entries we get every day--we've got THE most popular booth there.

So this morning, someone had written on the (blank) dry-erase board, where there'd usually be the quote of the day:
I do not like green eggs and ham.
   I do not like them...
   Where is Sam?

To which I responded (because I have to use my poetry degree somehow--)

Sam? He is at IRA.
He should return some time in May.
They needed him for databases,
and other such troublesome cases.

Heh. Oddly, I had Dr. Seuss on the brain today as well.

Actually, thought of you the other night. Channel 4 has been showing Dr. Tatiana's Sex Guide to All Creation, and they had a long feature on the Spotted Hyena, including a song and dance routine. Brilliant. Sadly, it's not online, and I bet the US version will be expurgated some, but the article is
online here.

S'okay, I have a copy of Dr. Tatiana. Didn't know about the song-and-dance, though :)

Very cute. Being one who once wooed a man with limericks, I appreciate your verse.

I prefer ...
"Don't question Authority. They don't know, either."
