Please see Volume I of the Turtle Trilogy, "Johnny D-man", and Volume III, "Alexander", by this author.
(AmIRighters, AmIRighters, AmIRighters, AmIRighters,)
They're the writers for me!

John A. Barry
How I love him
Pans and puns with such prolixity
Largest lexicative lore; 'locutes loquaciously

What a nickname!
But he's gaining glorious career
Entertaining amphigor-i-ous-ly thusly here

PMS, dude
Are you male or female?
Feel grouchy, sore, and fat?
There's medicine for that
Try an Advil
In the morning, or two
Or if prob-lem's with phallus
Perchance cop some Cialis

Peter "K1"
Nee An-ders-son
Of this crop, he is among the cream
And his writings I esteem; it seems I'm hearing him dream

Larry Hensley
Well, I think he's so keen
Immortal fame he seeks
By copying cleft cheeks
Rick Cor-mi-er
Nom de plume: French, assume?
Sung, "Sonny's skiing: splat!"
So thanks for Cher-ing that with....

How I love 'em
And I pray that someday they'll love me
And together we'll progen-er-ate per-fect par-o-dy!

(AmIRighters, AmIRighters, AmIRighters, AmIRighters,)
They're the writers for me!

(AmIRighters, AmIRighters, AmIRighters, AmIRighters,)
They're the writers for me!

I love an author who does his research. I am honored to be mentioned in a song. For the record I am middle-aged hausfrau who works on the fringes patient care in a hospital. I work with a lot of guys and some of what I write is geared to what they find funny.

I am honored to get this mention from the master of polysyllabic alliteration and lex appeal.
Larry Hensley - February 15, 2006 - Report this comment
I'm also honored to be mentioned. This was a really funny parody and a good tribute to many authors. 555's

I blush at the mention of my name. 555 (meticulously researched, you must have a lot of time on your hands!)

Johnny D, works for me, thanks.... PMS, pleased to meetcha... by what "guys" find funny, you mean the inpatients in the psych ward, as opposed to us outpatients at AIR, right??? ... John A., back at ya.. "lex appeal"... good one... you set a pretty high bar yourself for a guy to match, so "master" is a rather humbling honor and a lot of pressure, but will try not to disappoint ... Larry, thanks... Agrimorfee, thanks; it wasn't "researched", it was "plagiarized", as per Phil A... had some time during a slow work period, during and right after holidays, but not now, as tonight's post for 3/7 will explain... Kristof, thanks... hug hug... I read your "Secrets" and commented there... gosh, if I had known that stuff - here I was writing all this admiring stuff about these people....

HA! Thanks for the mention, Tommy. I liked your "there's medicine for that" line, among others. I once did a whole parody on alvin rhodes. SHAMELESS PLUG !!!

Must have missed this earlier, probably cos I DKTOS etc, but thanx, and I have to say that you are learning the tricks of the trader faster than most, maybe you're Spaff's alter ego for alternative material!.

Hmm... you're not, are you?

Peter K1, that is an incredible compliment, and many thanks, but...
A tourist is visiting the museum that houses the piano on which Beethoven composed. He sits down and plays "Chopsticks" and a couple of other things.
The museum guard says, "Last week, (world-famous concert pianist) Van Cliburn visited here".
The tourist says, "Wow, I'll bet he really made this piano sing!"
The guard replies, "No, he did not deem himself worthy to touch it."

So, thanks again, but I think I have a long way to go before being worthy to touch Spaff's pianist, or anything else of his. :)

Until we see a bio and/or a picture or something like that I'm not gonna be entirely sure that the Turtle is not an injoke like the Room Full Of Monkeys. Two-three weeks after arrival you write parodies about all the rest of us like you've known us for months, maybe years, and with Spaff now getting regular airtime on that radio show I figured it would make sense for him to do what stand up comedians do after they've gotten a break, they use another name and do small clubs when they feel they like to try out new material that they don't wanna risk experimenting with on a big stage under their own name. Well, that was my line of thinking anyway, and it doesn't change that I think you're a really good writer, whoever you really are! :-)

Peter K1, TUVVM... guess it is sorta time for the Turtle to post a bio; guess he's eligible now... I'll ask him to start working on it....

I have no particular talent or anything; I just do whatever the Turtle or my Rice Krispies tell me to do. -- TTT (Tommy Turtle's Transcriber)
