Yesterday, our distinguished dignitaries were shown round the homely home-from-home for sufferers of Disorders Of Lackadaisical Lobe Surgery (more commonly known as the D.O.L.L.S. House) by the establishment's newest member, Mandy (Aka Desmondina)........
The Gnob-Gnobbers chose to visit the residence of Mrs.Wood and her children, Natalie and Ronnie........
Dr.Adonis B.Bugosi happened to be passing by their particular window at that particular moment, purely by chance, and with his customary discretion observed this encounter with a typically happy family of his salubrious sanatorium, the D.O.L.L.S. - 'where dreams come true'.............

I figured you would be among it all somewhere, enjoy

Hippolytus

Juneee......all the money goes to a worthy cause.......bananas for the official photographer, i.e. me, myself and I......

juneshone

not, I like my frilly dresses too much, besides my editor charges these ladies to flaunt themselves in the paper

Elfie

NOT???????

juneshone

too many current events for me to juggle and that guy they call the 'Editor' keeps yelling for more. One would think he was in charge of a broadsheet the way he carries on strutting about. It's only an old Redtop rag. Don't know why I bother anyway most of the people who buy it either just want the sports page or can't read at all but like the nakey lady on page three, and no it is not me!

Elfie

David, you hit the very head of the nail so precisely!! Thanks so very much!!

lelabugosi

Mr.nearly-cured-numerous-numbers..........Your wondrous words have gently wafted through Bugosiland, shining a light of joy over all, and dispelling the dark clouds of those who would wish to rain on the party.......A fitting tribute indeed to the abundant pleasures to be found here........
Juneee............Yes, he was there all along.......you must try to keep up with current events......

juneshone

Ah! found him lurking on another page

juneshone

what a lovely poem David, perhaps the DOLLS house is being beneficial to you after all.

All of these P's remind me, where is our very own Pee? He was marked absent yesterday, anybody would think he had a life!

Owed to Bonga-Bonga

What I love 'bout Bonga-Bonga
Is that we can come and play.
Our host is gentle, and among a
Panoply of friends who may
Fly a fancy chairycopter
Through the blazing sky all day,
Or who might just simply opt to
Write a limerick for a stray
Cat or other kind of creature,
Come to comment or parlay.

Maledictions and disasters
Fester all along our way,
But in Bonga-Bonga's pastures
Sip we Tadpole Wine, and say
"Here is freedom, here adventure,
Here our feet are not of clay,
But on wing├Ęd feet the men, sure,
And the women, too, will stray
O'er the landscape's ev'ry feature
Bonga-Bonga to survey.

Elfie

Very phine phor the pyear - preally!!! The "q"s are silent AND invisible - but they ARE there!!

Plumpossum

And the pmore pcivilized pregions phave pfire phydrants for pthat psort of pthing.
Nice weather we're having, isn't it?

david06520

Ptrees, the p is psilent.

lelabugosi

Excuse ME, Plumpy!.....We have trees for that sort of thing.........

Plumpossum

I thought that was a Bonga Bonga custom.

lelabugosi

Well, I don't think it is very hygienic to p at the ice cream counter, even if there is a Q.........(Maybe it's a custom in Connecticut)........

Elfie

I'll go there immediately - it's silent too, isn't it??

david06520

At the ice cream counter, there's the Q. Everyone waits for a pturn.

Elfie

But the "q"!!! Where's the "q"?????

juneshone

now I am reminded of Ben and Gerry's Phish food and Jen has just got back from shopping, too late

Elfie

I always loved that "q"!!! Thanks for mentioning it Varda!!

Plumpossum

It's all silent, like the "q" in fish".

Elfie

Pooor Wicca bird!! Watch out for TomKitty!!

juneshone

he's all pooped out, she will let him into the house now

lelabugosi

Oh no!........Another cleaning bill...........

wicca

Well, I'm all pooped out. I think I'll go home now.

Elfie

'A,'A,'A - as they would say in French!!

juneshone

Wotever

lelabugosi

With a silent "haitch" I would imagine...........

Elfie

With "p" or another letter you can't hear either???

juneshone

Whatever

lelabugosi

I shall be polite and simply say.........ANYTHING!.........(with a silent "p" of course, naturellement).....

Elfie

Oh this becomes too negative - I'll say "Something"!!

juneshone

me neither also

twoclubs

Electric and edifying plumpy. I rather think I have nothing to say so I shall say it ~~ NOTHING~~

gemstone

You learn soooooo much on jigidi...don't you, pp? Are both those p's silent?

Plumpossum

My my - - such an edifying discussion. . . .

lelabugosi

EEEEEK!............................He returns!!............
(We will soon be prepared for his bladder surgery, minus-Tom)........
raincoat-infusion.....I fear you spoke too soon.....

patsquire

I, of course, detected the delinquent "d" immediately but, not wanting to cause embarrassment for our istinguishe host, decided to let it slide. And when Davyzip raised the issue he did it so artfully that I thought it well said, well stated, well expressed. Frankly it was with amusement and bemusement that I observed the confusion over the manynumbered one's remarks, until gemmy intervened and elucidated. Way to go gemmy darlin'.

So now I've been wondering whether or not our balllless Canajjjjian pussy is a member of Canada's famous red-coated national police force, for how can one be a Mountie if one's testicular appendages are no longer appended? (...being an enchoiring mind and all...)

The raincoat infusion's wistful desire for a silent P must mean she's a girl, for whom the silent P is impossible to achieve, whereas boys can direct their stream to the bare porcelain portion of the bowl and achieve the silent P quite easily or, one might say, handily.

teamac

I think we are all a little better off with the silent P

Elfie

TomKittty - just to let you know, patsquire is able to move rather fast on that bike, indeed he was able to drive from a Bornholmian train - or - was he pulling it??????

lelabugosi

Your credentials are certainly very impressive..............

ThomasCat

Then I think that precious Dr. Adonis Bugosi must be consulted. Bladder surgery is a direct off-shoot of Lobe Surgery and must be well within Dr. Bugosi's area of expertise. Now I know that Mr. P. Squire is not too keen on Dr. B. so he (P.Squire) will have to be well sedated. Although probably Dr. Bugosi should be sedated as well. I will volunteer to be the O.R. nurse since I once watched a heart transplant surgery on T.V. so am well qualified.

lelabugosi

Minus-Tom.........The delay is caused by his frequent stops to relieve his ailing bladder........he also has a penchant for public toilets (rest-rooms), where he meets 'interesting' people..............

juneshone

if the pee squirt wants a bigger bike he will steal one from a bigger kid than the last one, don't waste time worrying over hi. He is very resourceful.

disappointment, denegration, depression and ultimately death follows, we must find all the d's and remedy the situation

ThomasCat

I want to know where the heck Mr. P. Squire is. We have had to deal with a great number of very weighty issues and he has been nowhere in sight to add his inscrutable comments. I think it is his mode of transportation. I am wondering if we should take up an offering to buy him a larger bike. As it stands now, he must take at least an hour to traverse one block and he is just spending too much time in transit.

ThomasCat

They will take it home to Gnob-Gnobberland and begin dancing a dervish holding it high above their dunce caps. And everyone will say what the devil are those dittses doing with that d. And others will say, "Well darn it all, we don't know but we've decided it looks like a dastardly disgrace indeed." Then they will go into a downspin and dipsomania will follow shortly.

lelabugosi

The mystery of the missing "d" has been solved.......The Gnob-Gnobbers thought that Mandy was a man
(don't ask me why) who was missing her "d", so they presented her with this one as a form of restitution.....................(The Gnob-Gnobbian people feel that names have great significance)........

david06520

And I still wish to know
What the Gnob-Gnobbers
Will do with that
Stolen "d"

lelabugosi

Yes, during his short stay at the D.O.L.L.S. Mr.numerous-numerals has already improved his powers of observatory observation.........(and the meds. must be working).......Though I must commend precious-pebble for actually understanding anything at all.........
precious-pebble........We are treating it as a random act of forgetfulness............

david06520

Little stars
Big stars
Blowing through the night
And we're lost out here in the stars
Little stars
Big stars
Blowing through the night....
And we're lost out here in the stars

(As Mr. Monk says, "it's a gift...and a curse...it's a gift...and...a curse." I used to be a proffffessional prooofreader, and my gift...and curse...is that I can look at an entire page without reading it and point out the missssspellled words.)

juneshone

good, it can join all of his other stars for good work

ThomasCat

I, for one, would like to apologize to Davidnumbers. He seems so laid-back and carefree. In a classroom his teacher would think "I know he is not paying attention." When he talked about a lost "d" we all held our heads and said, "Poor David, we don't have the foggiest notion what he is talking about. He has been into the tadpole wine, again." But no.........Davidnumbers knew whereof he spoke. None of us, only Davidnumbers noticed this most egregious mistake. If there is a weekly Bugosian gold star award, then I nominate Davidnumbers. This will look good on his resume and help him with his next job search.

gemstone

Will this create an international incident?

lelabugosi

Tom........I shall henceforth call you, minus-Tom.......
Thank you, precious-pebble, for that explanation of sorts......though I cannot even see any small print, so I am none the wiser about the missing "d".......
regurgitate-17.........then you are far more observant than I.......

WAIT!....NOW I SEE IT!!.......HORROR OF HORRORS!!!......The Gnob-Gnobbers are not quite distinguished after all!.......

I forget : after very long time thinking and watching I understand now the missing " d " . also:for me the Gnobbers are distinguished ... d ... d ... d ... d...

I like the Gnobbers : specially there hats !

Elfie

After all ONE person who reads the small writing!! Astounding!!

gemstone

david-many-numbers is reading the fine print (good advice in most situations!)...and distinguishe is missing a "d".

ThomasCat

Mr. B. your question causes me to shudder quite violently and all I can say is.....I was told we were only going to the nearby D.O.L.L.S. House (in Canada this is the Disorders Of Large Lymphnodes Surgery) when in reality we went to the other D.O.L.L.S. House....Dismemberment Of Lovely Lobes Surgery. Needless to say, I am still in therapy!!!

lelabugosi

Mr.numerical-numbers..............I haven' the foggiest idea what you are talking about.....could you maybe, possibly clarify somewhat your inner ramblings?.......
Tom.........Uncle/Doctor is leaving them to learn by observation, as they are not under his care.......BTW, have you been neutered?......Just wonderin'...........

ThomasCat

It is now morning up here on the vast ice sheets of Canada and I have had time to further ponder the situation in the D.O.L.L.S. House. I now know that the Gnob-Gnobbers are there to continue their education. Does that mean the skulking "Dr."/Dr. Bugosi is revealing to them the inner workings/hidden meaning of Chapter 12 in the Bugosiland Medical Journal that is titled, "The Fine Art Of Avoiding Visitors Who Are Visiting So You Do Not Have The Bother Of Furthering Their Education?"

Elfie

Amen!!

juneshone

the inhabitants of the DOLLS house are in a state of bliss. Ignorance being bliss.

patsquire

Researcher General of Bugosiland ! ! ! ! ! DRINK NOT of the Tadpole Wine lest ye be lost at the FIRST SIP, for that is how addictive it is, how mind-numbing, how evilly pervasive and ruinous of thy very soul!

DRINK NOT, NOR LET A SINGLE DROP FALL UPON THY SKIN!

david06520

*the Gnob-Gnobbers have Grab-Grabbed a "d" from the entitlement of this Photography...what, what pray what do they intend with that "d"*
enchoiring minds wish to know

gemstone

Where ARE our manners? TC would you like a chilled glass of Tadpole Wine or would you prefer a dish of cream? Come along, david-many-numbers, your milk and cookies are on your bedside table...now be sure to drink ALL your milk.

ThomasCat

I feel torn!!!! On the one hand Mr. Squire says Dr. Bugosi is only a "Dr" Bugosi and is not fit to carry a scalpel. On the other hand, you, Mr. all-knowing Bugosi, say that miracles occur daily all the time at the D.O.L.L.S. House at the hand, I'm assuming of our darling Adonis. Is he truly a Dr. Jeckyll/Mr. Hyde. My heart pounds as I consider the answer!

lelabugosi

Good to hear you are getting along, Mr.numbers....................._.....
Ah, Tom........so you do exist!.....I suggest you take notes of the wonders of curative surgery that you may be privileged to witness here at the D.O.L.L.S. for this establishment is the only one of its kind IN THE WHOLE WORLD, and miracles are performed here every day, ON A DAILY BASIS!.........(The Gnob-Gnobbers are here purely in order to further their education)......

david06520

nothing to see here, move along, erm, move, erm, along, yes...

patsquire

Still pictures are all we ever see, mute faces, no "evidence" at all of their miserable daily lives, their suffering, their subsisting on pablum and gruel. We see them ONLY AS YOU POSE THEM and can never hope to reach them, to help them, because the doors to The D.O.L.L.S. House are forever locked, barred, chained and guarded by the NRA - - the Nuns Rifle Artillery, pictured here:

www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=U6PRVXDE

You're missing the point, anthropoamateur. "Dr." A. B. Bugosi has no doctoral duties because he is no doctor, good or otherwise. He wouldn't know a doctoral duty if it rose up and spit in his eye. He applies the knife to these hapless victims, and then delights in observing their miserably miserable miserability, laughing gleefully and wringing his hands in delight all the while! (Shudder.)

ThomasCat

Not yet being fully steeped in the Bugosian lore I am wondering if the Gnob-Gnobbers are at the D.O.L.L.S. house for lobe surgery or, as it would appear, has it already been performed on them. Desmondia seems to be in a certain amount of pain and is perhaps having a relapse?? I think the good Dr. needs to quit skulking and attend to his doctoral duties. As a sidebar Mrs. Wood and the children, although not being very welcoming to the Gnob-Gnobbers, do look contented which is a feather in Dr. Bugosi's hat, if he had one!

david06520

Yes, erm, yes, hello out there people of earth. Everything is now okely-dokely here in the DOLLS House. Nothing to see, move along, move along, erm, yes...

I have been helped greatly by fellow Resident Ronnie Wood. He enjoys the great out of doors and the athletic pursuits, which is why he is known by his nickname, Sportin'. Anyway, we are getting along famously now. Nothing to see, move along, erm, yes...

lelabugosi

Ah yes.........Mr.numerical-numinous-numbers is definitely starting to feel MUCH better!................

david06520

urggggghgh mmmefmgmh urgggggh eeeeeeeeeeee

lelabugosi

Hanne, the masks have become part of their fashionable fashion statement, so they prefer to leave them on......
Mr.Le-Squirt........If the poor "victims" are hiding away in hidery, how is it that I have never, not once, not in a million years, flinched from showing ON THESE VERY PAGES, pictures of these HAPPY people in their beautiful homes?........And, also as well, too - have you ever heard one of them mumbling?...I think not, in fact ipso facto, I KNOW NOT!!.....................And with those words I rest my case......

patsquire

Since a skulky-cat afroplogonist may be observing, and since elucidation is the byword of the moment, let us take note of this phrase "Disorders Of Lackadaisical Lobe Surgery (more commonly known as D.O.L.L.S.)" and provide some hysterical historical background. The evil peeker in the window is known (here in Bugosiland) as Dr. Adonis B. Bugosi, but therein lies the crux of the deception.

For "Dr." A. B. Bugosi IS NO DOCTOR in reality, but a charlatan and quack who "awarded" (i.e. "purchased") himself a bogus diploma from a Jamaican website/medical school/diploma mill and promptly began performing lobotomies willy-nilly, helter-skelter, ping-pong and Yahtzee all over the place, mostly on attractive young girls. Well, he couldn't just have the tragic evidence of his experiments stumbling about in public, drooling and leering (oh no, that's him doing that), I mean staring vacantly and mumbling, so drawing on the Bugosi fortune (which comes from the sale of highly addictive Tadpole Wine) he built The D.O.L.L.S. House to hide the poor victims away in hidery, where their abject suffering can be hidden.

Leave us don't forget..........

Elfie

Hmmmm!! - why was it that they didn't take off their masks when the air was much fresher in Bonga-Bonga, did you ever say that - and have I forgotten??

lelabugosi

Yes, Hanne-with-pipe, when I tried on the minaret and got my head stuck.......the face was......'almost'.....normal........
But, old-furniture-chomper-not-chomping-madam.......that is why they have not been shrunk, as Dr./Uncle would be larger.......
bookie-person........some of doctor's powers are totally forgettable...........

bookish

Thanks, had totally forgotten about doctor's powers.

grannygoatlady

Well, obviously, Dr./Uncle is the same size because he was outside..........

Elfie

Lela, did you ever see their faces?? - have they got any???

lelabugosi

You are only wrong, Tatty-from-Brazil, in your conclusions........THIS IS NOT A SHOEBOX!.......It is an ultra-modern design for a 20th.....I mean 21st.century living quarter.......
And if these people have been shrunk - how is it that uncle Adonis is THE SAME SIZE?........Eh?....Eh?.......

grannygoatlady

Who among us remember the early TV show "The Twiligh Zone"?.....There was a segment about aliens landing and showing the locals a book "How to Serve Mankind"...the locals learned too late, much to their untimely chagrin, that it was a cook book......

Has anyone double checked to be certain the Gnob-Gnobbers are, indeed, what they say they are.....has anyone validated their claim to being "dignataries".....are we absolutely certain they are not just "Strangers in a Strange Land" possibly with a cook book of their own....

cakes1947

I do hope the visitors found the Woods family to their liking. And their new retro 1950's furniture! Thanks Lela!! :))))))))))

Tatinha

4 dictionaries in hand and I took my chance to write a few lines. As a former secretary that has been taken in charge of the shoe boxes and I must say it?s a shoe box. Gnob Gnobbers are shrinkable and also has the power of shrinking anybody else. Supervised by Dr. Adonis they administer shrinking, the newest treatment for D.O.L.L.S. They put them all erect again. Please, Lela put it right if I?m wrong.

lelabugosi

It'll be curtains for you if you set your wrinkly feet atop the curtain-rail, o dark one!.............

wicca

OOOOOOOOOOOO Curtains!

lelabugosi

Plumpy, I believe Mr.numerous-numerals is being de-programmed.............I mean of course, watching a tv programme.....

Plumpossum

Where is His Numberness?

lelabugosi

bookie-person.......the portraits only swivel round when the good doctor is in the room, due to his telekinetic powers........
Juneee.......Try and control your Tourettic nose, as it really has no need to twitch with these amiable ambassadors from another land......

juneshone

ooops, baring themselves, Freudian slip. Yes how about making them bare themselves? Let's see what they are made of, not sugar and spice. my Reporters nose is a-twitch

juneshone

I can't believe that you let these creatures wander around poking their snouts in every crook and nanny. Have you never watched Doctor Who?? Dignity, they are robots, they have no other way of baring themselves. I'm off on holiday before I get kidnapped again

bookish

I notice the portrait is hanging right-side-up, unlike here:
http://www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=2KP7G2FQ

lelabugosi

Hanne-with-pipe..........Yesterday they went for a swim and nearly drowned with the weight of their minarets.......I have never heard of a drowned, minaret-wearing robot.......
old-furniture-no-longer-chomping-madam..........they merely bear themselves with dignity............
number-six-at-the-racetrack........Yes, isn't it an amazingly innovative design!.......

monza006

This room in the D.O.L.L.S. house looks very similar to a shoebox!!! Immaculately furnished nevertheless!!

grannygoatlady

Beware Gnob-Gnobbers bearing gifts...or anything else.........

Elfie

ARE you sure, they aren't robots underneath those clothes??
