The happy couple pictured here with their beautiful little baby, have agreed to take charge of Kaleidoboy, in their tastefully decorated home at the D.O.L.L.S. House.........He will receive from them the tender loving care that has been sadly lacking in his life, and have a playmate in his little 'brother'.......
As you can see, the room has been specially decorated for the new arrival - with a full-size portrait of Kaleidoboy in his comic-strip costume, and a striking table-top figurine of the not-so-superhero in full regalia........
Dr./uncle Adonis B.Bugosi will monitor his progress from day to day, thus guaranteeing a happy future......
We wish them well.............

But of course, no problems!!

juneshone

I don't like chicken can I have mince and dumplings?

Elfie

We'll all have chicken and dumplings!!

Plumpossum

Or, in this case, eight.

david06520

She'll be driving six white horses!!

Plumpossum

Well, not quite like mine, lela.

Elfie

Siberia!! It's faaaaar away and VERY cold - couldn't we find anything not so rough??
David-of-the-Numbers, she'll be coming round the mountains.....!!

lelabugosi

Just thought, Plumpy.......This adorable couple even have a priceless antique horse ornament.....just like yours!........
Mr.Le-Squirt.......Our records show that YOU WERE THERE!........and our records NEVER LIE!.......(at least not without good reason)....

patsquire

Quite the most erudite site on the web, a right tight sight for a gaily bedight gallant knight from El Dorado.

And WOW! What a trip down memory lane looking at that libelous old puzzle lelabug cited below.

Not a shred of proof, of course, that I was ever inside the confines of the D.O.L.L.S. House. Just more innuendo, prevarication and PROPAGANDA, as I have already mentioned today.

Sorry lela, ya still got nuthin'.

Plumpossum

I suspect he's on a toot, lela. . . .

lelabugosi

Ah, dancing-pecan.........about my once-lovely curtains........
david-many-numbers-and-rhymes........you are truly inspired.........have you been tooting?.......

david06520

A tutor who tooted the flute
Tried to tutor two tooters to toot.
Said the two to the tutor, "Is it harder to toot or
To tutor two tooters to toot?"

jignut

Then who would we have to pick on?

lelabugosi

I think we should send him to Siberia..........just an idea........

Elfie

Interesting - indeed!!! And what do we do now??

lelabugosi

Well.......after yet another 10 pages of meaningless drivel from Mr.Pee-Le-Squirt, I would like to draw everyone's attention once more to this priceless image:-
http://www.jigidi.com/created.php?id=AA6P7RI2
.....with the corresponding explanation and usual denials from the man WHO WAS ONCE A RESIDENT OF THE D.O.L.L.S. HOUSE!!
No doubt there are many more PROOFS of the Squirt's true past encounters with the mind-healers of Bugosiland (i.e. Dr.A.B.Bugosi and his crack team of experts) but I have neither the time nor the inclination to look back that far, as the Squirt is obviously INSANE!........
I rest my case.......

Elfie

Ohhhh, now you are FUNNEEEE!! Super!!

juneshone

or fuse-ing her again

patsquire

Elfie darling, you are so nice, how could I ever refuse you? That's "re-FUSE" as in deny, not "REFF-use" as in garbage.

I sing with the Beatles : help help help

gemstone

That's what I always say, juneeeee, but evidently the Americans can pick out the Canadians with their "oot and aboot" just as well as with "eh?" and our fur parkas (which we don't wear in August), beer (which is much stronger than the American brew) and back bacon (which everything goes better with).

juneshone

I thought oot and aboot was Scottish, or even Geordie

Elfie

Languages are so very much fun, and playing with words is very much fun! The only bad thing is when you frustrate because you don't understand something funny - if there is some!!! Thanks for your very sweet understanding, Patsy!!

patsquire

Sorry, dearie, I do get carried away!

Here's a riddle: in simple English words what does this say? 1:58 - 2:02

The English language is so much fun (anybody's native tongue is, mine just happens to be English) that I get to larking about in it and can hardly stop. And please take note, some of these weird words I just make up on the moment, so you won't find them in the best dictionary (or the worst). So now I'll embed the answer to the riddle, it says two to two to two two. I squeezed the answer in here so it wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb. And here's the punch line. If you write that same exact number down again, it says two to two to two two, too! Now who doesn't love a language that can be that much fun, eh? I know we have a true international community here in Jigidi and I hope I haven't made anybody feel unwelcome with my esoteric ramblings.

Elfie

Patsy, please, your language!! My dictionary is to be worn out totally, and I get SO tired of looking up all those WORDS!! Can't you express yourself in a shorter way with words that even foreigners understand?? Pleeeeaaasssee!!

patsquire

Oh! The pressure! The demands! They never end when you are a famous celebrity.*

Belaminx, fair maiden, you are entirely entitled to an elegant elucidation, and you've come to the right source. I? Imprisoned in and escaped from the D.O.L.L.S. House? Fair maiden, the impossible is always and forever impossible. Therefore, Q.E.D., resultingnesswise, I could never have been a captive incarcerated in the dungeon of D.O.L.L.S.

The Germans, the Soviets, the Red Chinese, Hillary Clinton, all of these are recognized masters of propaganda, BUT THEY ALL TAKE A BACK SEAT TO THE BUGOSIS. Any cover stories you may have read were written by B.O.P.'M. (Bugosi Operational Propaganda Ministry) personnel, paid professionals of the misleading misdirectional misogynist sort. It is believed but never ascertainized that their labyrinthine maze of cubicles lies somewhere in the subbasements of the massive B.A.R.F HQ building (the Bugosi Animal Research Farm).

You may rest assured that the doors of D.O.L.L.S. never closed behind me, for I am free, out and about (oot and aboot for you Canadians), gladly gadding, free as a daisy, fresh as a bird, walking the world and enjoying life! No, no D.O.L.L.S. incarceration for me.

You see? When you read what our gentle leader lelabug writes, and then subtract the lies, the disinformation and the b*llsh*t you are left with NOTHING, NADA, ZIP, ZILCH, ZERO - - which is exactly how much truth there is in lelabug's megalomaniacal meanderings.

The Bugosiland Saga stretches back for years, and Your Humble Servant has been its sole source of honest, reliable information all this long while. You would shudder and crumble under the accumulated weight of the prevarications and mendacity, the falsehoods and perjuries, the charlatanistical chicanery shoveled like manure onto the visitors to Bugosiland by our diligent leader. Diligent in his pursuit of mistruth, untruth, nontruth, anything but true truth.

I hope this little exposition has helped you (and other Bugosiites) understand the ken, the cognition, the comprehension of this wonderful world.

*That's what I've heard, when I read about famous celebrities in the journals of modern journalism. You know, National Enquirer, Star, People, Soap Opera Weekly. My bibles.

lelabugosi

Well done, anniebellum and son.......I was very slow there!.......
pretty-vixen....you have brought to our attention a very valid point.......The public demands an explanation - and IT DEMANDS IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Elfie

Indeed - very well done - and won!!

juneshone

Well done Anniebellum and son, what a pretty prize you won

belaminx

I am puzzled M'sieur PSquash, if no-one ever escapes the D.O.L.L.S house, I seem to remember that YOU escaped and had all of Bonga-Bonga looking for you (you were very much sought after at the time I believe), but perhaps you could explain it to me M'sieur P? After all, I've only been visiting Bonga-Bonga for the last year now, so perhaps I am mistaken?

david06520

Anniebellum's Prize:
http://www.jigidi.com/created.php?id=Z62121CH

david06520

YAY anniebellum and her son! Yes, I did actually give it away - it was based on Juneshone's comment about the Poe poem reminding her of Yeats. But I like stayed late, too. Congratulations!

anniebellum

My son just found a solution for stayed open. "Yeats (a)nd Poe" mixed up.

anniebellum

I don't normally make comments but I happened to show this to my son who loves word puzzles and this is his answer: "Unless you felt like just giving it away (stayed open), my answer would be "stayed late." An Irish poet (Yeats) and an airline that is nearly American (Delta) mixed up makes "stayed late."

david06520

(well, I'd say if one stayed open to the possibilities in the clue one could find the answer...)

lelabugosi

(Still clueless.........)
raincoat-infusion.......I am not sure of the gender of these cuddly babies........they do look rather...er...similar.......

teamac

I think it very heart warming that this couple is taking the lad in, and I wish him a happy home coming :^)
....however I am sorry to report that I still find the babies there somewhat discomforting to gaze upon. I was hazarding a guess as to gender as since I have not had the care and maintenance of these infants...it is hard to denote the subtle differences to tell them apart.

david06520

Consider the ramblings of dear Shining Month...

lelabugosi

"fable-fop tigurines"....(hee-hee!)..........Anyway, I don't have a clue (so to speak)........

david06520

M. Lela, your flights of fancy are creating fable-fop tigurines that are quite a bit off the point. Have another glass of Vin TĂȘtard and see if you can do any better...

bookish

No time for cold - too busy giggling. Tee-hee.

lelabugosi

Yes, Hanne-with-pipe.....yours is the voice of reason.....he will be with a nice, quiet (very quiet) couple, and will have lots of books to read.....two of each.......
Mr.Numbers......The answer then must surely be "Sunday Lunch".......for if you were conducting business on a Sunday, then a lunch would certainly prolong your business day on a Sunday doing business through the day, would it not?.......

Elfie

I really don't see why Kboy shouldn't be fine with this family in spite of the awful baby!! Perhaps he will like it you never know!! Why not give him a chance to find out and let him tell about his experences??? Why are you all so sad? - hangover from the glorious party???

david06520

Oh, Hellooooooeeee SLOG, what a delight to share a Sunday Tease with you! You have proven what a terrible Crossword Editor I should make, since your Sunday Teas works nearly as well as the other, more truly true, answer I had in mind! Without the crossing clews, you had no way of knowing that the solution will not work in the great Puzzle that is Life.

But think, dear sweet little don't-mention-a-lady's-age granny, "Sunday Teas" do not prolong the business day, do they? They belong rather to the realm of pleasure. Alas! Another guess is required.

sweetlittleoldgranny

Hellooee Mr.Name-and-numbers..........looks like 'Sunday teas' to me.........of course it might be 'Tunday seas' also, as well, too.......
Mr.Le-Squirt.....I once won a raffle prize, which was a week-long stay at the D.O.L.L.S. House........It was wonderful, and I lived to tell the tale!......As you can see, I'm perfectly normal.........sort of........
Mr.Roerick-number........Mr.Le-Squirt is mad!......

david06520

[Yes, it is a crossword clue thingy and, in addition, I will give a prize to whichever solver might register the correct solution most speediest, as well. Too.]

roerick3

Insanity reigns in Jigidi land, all is well.

patsquire

NONE!!!!!

patsquire

NO ESCAPE!!!!!

patsquire

"Rest assured, this lovely couple will be going nowhere."

You see? Sometimes, strategically, lelabug DOES tell the truth. He does this cleverly, he picks his moments, and he does it for maximum effect. Here he seems to be comforting poor, worried sweetdee. How nice of him.

Until it sinks in that I'M RIGHT! These poor parents are NEVER going anywhere! They're in the D.O.L.L.S. House, from which there is NO ESCAPE!!!!!

lelabugosi

'To one in paradise' (with buzzz).......a beautiful ode indeedy!......
Is that a crossword clue thingy?..........

david06520

They prolonged the business day, a mixed-up Irish poet and (nearly) American, too. (6,4)

lelabugosi

Mr.Le-Squirt.........your slanderous LIES hold no weight here!........The D.O.L.L.S. House is a respected institution and the residents residing in the residence in a residential manner, or manor, are the happiest souls imaginable......
It is our intention to mould Kaleidoboy into a 'model' citizen, of balanced mind, body and spirit......and who more qualified to accomplish this than the eminent neurosurgeon, psychiatrist, and 1958 bobsleigh champion Dr.Adonis B.Bugosi?........
Moreover, also, too, as well.....Why would I fake photos?......Why would I lie?........Why do you keep changing your image?.......Eh?.........Eh?.........

Sugary-4th.letter.......Rest assured, this lovely couple will be going nowhere.......and Kaleidoboy is only allowed a small glass of Tadpole Wine with his hot chocolate -just before he's tucked in for the night.......
Bookie-person.....do you have a cold?.......

patsquire

A heartrending lament, indeed.

juneshone

Hi David I see we are back on the Poe again. I thought it might be by W B Yeats, never notices their similar styles before.

juneshone

Dear Mr P, I am so worried. Beginning to think the boy would have been better off with you

unclebluebottle

What a beautiful poem, Mr.Numberzzzz.........I do believe I shall polish my organ and set those wistful words to music!........(bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz)........

patsquire

See everybody, you drink the Tadpole Wine, you get a buzz on!

David-of-PA, you're caught somewhere in the middle I fear. Either hold off on any more imbibing, or charge full steam ahead right to the bottom of the bottle! (Anyway, that's the way I see it through my aviator's glasses, yellowed with age.)

david06520

Thou wast all that to me, love, bzzz bzzz
For which my soul did pine-
A green isle in the sea, love, bzzz bzzz
A fountain and a shrine,
All wreathed with fairy fruits and flowers,
And all the flowers were mine -- bzzz bzzz

Ah, dream too bright to last!
Ah, starry Hope! that didst arise, bzzz bzzz
But to be overcast!
A voice from out the Future cries, bzzz bzzz
'On! on!'- but o'er the Past
(Dim gulf!) my spirit hovering lies
Mute, motionless, aghast! (bzzzzzz)

For, alas! alas! me bzzz bzzz
For me the light of Life is over!
'No more- no more- no more-' bzzzzzzzz bzzzzzzz
(Such language holds the solemn sea
To the sands upon the shore)
Shall bloom the thunder-blasted tree
Or the stricken eagle soar! bzzz bzzz

And all my days are trances,
And all my nightly dreams bzzz bzzz
Are where thy grey eye glances,
And where thy footstep gleams- bzzz bzzz
In what ethereal dances,
By what eternal streams
of Tadpole Wine.

patsquire

Let Kaleidoboy drink it? HA! They'll encourage him to, and if that doesn't work they'll FORCE him to! For it is into the Tadpole Wine that the soul disappears, that the mind is lost, befuddled, numbed. Yes sweet one, they'll "let" him drink of the Tadpole Wine. That large bottle, and then another, and another, and another..........

sweetdee

Poor Kaleidoboy. It seems as if he's going to be expected to babysit that rather nefarious looking child whose parents are eagerly anticipating running out the door to escape for the evening. Will they let Kaleidoboy drink that large bottle of tadpole wine on the table while they're out?

patsquire

Yes bookster, we can but weep.

bookish

Pass a hanky, please.

patsquire

"We wish them well............." The most ironic, evil words ever heard in Bugosiland.

For now that Kaleidoboy has disappeared into the bowels of the D.O.L.L.S. House his friends and family will never see him again! You, Bugosilanders, you will never see the real Kaleidoboy again. The Bugosi propaganda machine may publish a photo of him now and again, with some kind of idyllic cover story, but poor, poor Kaleidoboy is gone to us forever.

NOBODY HAS EVER emerged from the D.O.L.L.S. House! NOT ONE SOUL! The Bugosi minions drug them, they abuse them, they mistreat them, they EXPERIMENT on them in ways the world has not seen in decades. Oh sure, we'll get happy reports, faked photos, lies, lies and more lies about him.

R.I.P. poor fellow, poor friend, poor Kaleidoboy.
