Yesterday, Mrs.Bugosi and I made the short trip to Little-Bonga in order to take advantage of one of the exciting examples of progressive progress progressively in progression under the magnanimous mandate of Uncle Bluebottle - "The People's President"........
The latest in uncle's innovative ideas consists of replacing all the 'used and unwanted clothes' receptacles with mail-boxes, as most of the islanders are now fully-clothed........
Little Bonga can now proudly boast more mail-boxes per inhabitant than anywhere else in the world - A FINE ACHIEVEMENT INDEED!......
We took a boatload of Christmas presents over in the knowledge that this year they will arrive ON TIME!.......(Or soon after)......

cakes1947

Karl is a Dragon, Witzend is a Tiger and I am a Rat. to be honest if the stuff has been in those boxes so long he wouldn't eat it. Still it was a kind thought.

lelabugosi

In that case, Karl can have a cake......or a pizza.....or whatever may or may not be in these parcels, for it's been so long that I can't really remember......

gemstone

Happy Birthday, Karl...entering the year of the snake...is that his year?

Elfie

Sorry, congratulations for Karl, of course!!

Elfie

Ohhhh, by the way we have one in the freezer!! Perhaps we should celebrate too??

juneshone

it was Karl's birthday lunch, witzend is taking him out on Saturday night to dinner and his birthday is on Sunday, Chinese New year day this year too

grannygoatlady

But wait!!! The packages started out as belated, post-Christmas presents that might...or might not...arrive sometime this year and now they have morphed into cakes and pizzas....of which I ordered neither.....

Elfie

Duck - on a Thursday?? Is it anybody's birthday??

lelabugosi

DUCK?!.....What are we ducking from?...........

juneshone

you can have my pizza too, i have eaten too much duck

Robbiel

Ha Ha I want to see all those pizzas fit in that silly little sack Witzy!!

Witzend

Cakes says I can have her pizza. Hope your sack is insulated.

Robbiel

Notice how Lela is being so helpful to Mrs. Bugosi? What a thoughtful little big-eared man he is!!

juneshone

in the boxes, I hope

Elfie

Cakes?? Where??

juneshone

maybe it's shortbread

Robbiel

I guess you forgot the baking powder Lela!!!!

lelabugosi

Don't be silly.........they're cakes!......

Witzend

Can't wait for my pizza to be delivered Mrs Bugosi.

lelabugosi

Yes......and too few mail-boxes!........

teamac

I find this fascinating .....Finally....some one has come up with a plausable explaination for the disappearance of Atlantis and why Venice is partially submerged.....Too many Nat Geos !!

Elfie

I think some spring has sprung and has to be repaired! David is it so????

juneshone

David are you asleep? sounds like strange snoring and the occasional raven quote or quoth

lelabugosi

Ah.....that must be the abzzzzzzzzzzridged version...............(still bzzzzzzzzzzeautiful)...........

Thank you, Plumpy-purple-marsupial for your clarification of the true identity of this wonderfully clean president!...........and to granny-G for the nom-de-plume-thingy (which is of course logically logical)......
Hanne-with-pipe..........erm....yes!........

Elfie

So vacuum-cleaners and National Geographic!! It's really progress that WILL something!!

grannygoatlady

You're right, Purple Marsupial, you are definitely right...when you're right, you're right......and it is rumored that to his closest friends and compatriots he was known as Dust Bunny..........a throw back to the vacuum cleaner connection....that apparently did not exist except in the minds of some..........

Plumpossum

The president some of you are referring to was actually Hoobert Heever.

lelabugosi

Welcome back, computer-down-in-Rebmuda........If you can manage to retain just a crumb of this giant cake of knowledge, then your wisdom will startle even the wisest of your countrymen.......(and countrywimmen, of course)........

Robbiel

I am so thankful that I am able to once again partake with you all Lela. Tonight especially because there is so much interesting knowledge flowing from all of you and I am quite excited to say the least!! ( Unfortunately I forgot everything as I scrolled up, but what fun reading it all!!)

lelabugosi

I am glad we are all agreeing agreeably on the causes, effects, and solution to this problem which has been shackling humanity for so long........
(Though I thought Herbert Hoover was the English spelling, and that you would call him "Herbert Vacuum-Cleaner".....I am obviously in error)...........

grannygoatlady

Ah, Mr. P-Squirt, though you can at times be Abominable and Reprehensible, still I thank you for calling me Affable and Likable....and let me assure you, I am fully cognizant of the Language and Naming rules of Bugosiland....and I DID invert the first letters of the famous president with the famous saying....hence, therefore, and thereby.... Herbert Hoover.

As for Global Shrinkage...OMG!! Thank you for finally solving the Riddle and Conundrum (even Enigma, say some) that has been plagueing mankind for the past century...or however long Nat-Geo has been in circulation.

And a Grand Huzzah for Uncle BB for the mail box Triumph....and continue partaking of the Tadpole for your organ enhancement...it will ultimately benefit all of Humanity...

{Knowing him as I do, I am not sure I would trust what P-Squiddy has to say about N.G.O.'s... but if Uncle B-B concurs, who gains by gainsaying?}

unclebluebottle

Thank you Mr.Fatter-than-Santa-with-a-girly-bike..........I do partake of the Tadpole, but in moderation - I find it enhances my organ performances.......
Ms. Was-shining........I think you will find they are in this batch, and should arrive before the end of the year (probably this year).......

juneshone

as far as Christmas sales are concerned I am still awaiting delivery of last year's presents. My family are beginning not to believe me when I say I ordered them in good time.

patsquire

Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah! For Uncle Bluebottle, President-For-Life, candidate for the Nobel Size Prize, and presumptive one-day Secretary General of The United Nations. The world unites in praise for Uncle Bluebottle! (Obviously he has been able to resist the temptation of the Tadpole Wine, bless his bluebottley soul.)

lelabugosi

Mr.Pinky Le-Squirt....For once I find that I must agree with you.........Global Shrinkage is being felt all over the world - Globally in fact, most strikingly in the aged........It is now a scientific fact, proved by science in fact, that our old people are shrinking at an alarming rate - and it is down to all the National Geographic Magazines, ergo ipso facto, the lack of mail-boxes.......
I feel fully confident that in the short space of 300 years the old people of Little-Bonga will lead the world in terms of height, and the senior seniors' basketball team will not only tower over their rivals but will also win the basketball world cup-thingy.........and all thanks to uncle/president Bluebottle.....

patsquire

Affable and likable GGL, please keep in mind that here in Bugosiland we invert the first letters of famous names, which means that Herbert Hoover comes out as Herbert Hoover. I hope that, with the benefit of this simple explanation, you'll be able to remember that in the future.

It should be obvious that one great benefit of having more-mailboxes-per-capita results from the decentralization of the weight of all the National Geographic Magazines delivered each month. Too high a concentration of National Geographics, or N-Geos as they are commonly called, has been proven to cause a gradual sinking of the substrative alluvial foundation below certain buildings, homes of long-time subscribers (for no one EVER throws away an N-Geo!) and even the mailboxes themselves in countries with too-few-mailboxes-per-capita.

Uncle Bluebottle is to be commended for his insightful and progressive campaign to prevent substrative alluvial foundation compression, and the resultant Global Shrinking it can cause. (The greatest minds of science agree that Global Warming is nothing compared to Global Shrinking.)

lelabugosi

Yes, sugary-4th.-letter........I suppose that is why they are named 'the post-Christmas sales'.........
old-furniture-chomper-not-chomping-madam........The standards of the sub-standard standards must surely be raised when everyone almost nearly has their own mail-box that they can call nearly almost their own, as they don't have to spend 3 and a half hours searching for a place to post whatever it is they may want to post.........that time can be better employed in the service of their country, by either tending the tadpoles, knitting something with stripes for uncle Bluebottle, or some other such useful pursuit.......I hope I have dissipated any lingering doubts in your cloudy thoughts.....

grannygoatlady

Hmmm, "more mail-boxes per inhabitant...." Is that akin to the promise of President Herbert Hoover of "a chicken in every pot"? And can such a Grand Achievement truly raise the standards of the sub-standard standards??? And if the answer to that is a resounding YES!!, then please explain, do, just how it can and will and does................

sweetdee

You are so lucky! You can do all your shopping at the post-Christmas sales.
