Long before the name Bugosi became synonymous with tadpoles, there lived an illustrious man whose name is now forever associated with apples......
Isaac Bugosi-Wenton was a keen juggler, who had aspirations of one day joining the Ringling Brothers
circus......As his father owned an extensive apple orchard, the young unemployed Isaac could be found every day throwing apples into the air, as he sought to perfect his art......
His training was very methodical, as he measured and weighed each apple, carefully calculating the
speed and distance involved in every throw - eventually coming to the conclusion that green apples were the best.......
One fine day found him sitting under a tree, making calculations in his little notebook, when all of a suddenly an apple fell from its lofty perch and hit him on the nose........When he came to, Isaac wondered why the apple had fallen on his nose, instead of rising to hit a bird, which had now pooped in his eye......
Taking into account the relative weight and size of the apple, and comparing it to the relative weight
and size of the poop, he realised that a hidden force was at work in nature, and also, as well, that it was unwise to sit under apple trees without wearing a mask......
Thus it was that Isaac Bugosi discovered the law of gravity........sadly, his career as a juggler never got off the ground.....
Oh yes......he was also good at sums........

MMM.... sugar eggs.....yummy1

juneshone

you can buy little sugar eggs but maybe they are too small. Have fun All y'all Im off

jignut

Plumpy..........She doesn't have a nest. That would only encourage her. She has a 4'x5' cage in our office with door open(except at night) so she can go in or out. Also,where would you buy fake crow eggs? MMMM?

Lelabug..........No,she has been laying eggs on the cage floor. I have never cared for egg shampoos.

Gemmy..........Some animals do eat their young.Not the best method of birth control but it does work.

gemstone

Eating your own grandchildren!!! The very idea!!!

lelabugosi

Does she lay them on your head?............

Plumpossum

Maybe you could plant some fake eggs in her nest so she'd think there are enough. . .?

jignut

I wonder how many she thinks is enough? I read they can lay up to nine eggs. Hopefully she is going to give this up soon......... Maybe I could make an omelette.

juneshone

do you take the eggs away, she will want to make a clutch of them and will stop when she collects enough, er I think. Hens do that anyway

lelabugosi

I could certainly suggest something.......but we are in polite company (well, sort of)........

jignut

New Flash....Wicca has now laid FIVE eggs! How do you turn these things off? Is there a button you push somewhere?

Elfie

Excuse one who hasn't come further than to horse and carriage but - a Checker is a car - right?? Any pictures of such a thingy??

david06520

When he signed my high school yearbook, the Checker driver included a bill for fare due, sadly it remains unpaid...

Plumpossum

Oh, and the replacement was an ungainly SUV which they named, appropriately, "Moby Dick." But MD never replaced the Checker in their affections.

Plumpossum

A recently deceased uncle and his retired ballerina wife (also recently deceased) for many years owned and drove a Checker of which they were extremely fond. It pained them to have to replace it when it finally went the way of the wonderful one-hoss shay. . . .

juneshone

juuuuust get meeee tu my setteeeeeeee and tuuuuurn on the maaaaacheeeeen, heeeeeelp!! Oh thanks that's better - I breathe ergo sum! Now it's time to do my leg exercises, see you in half an hour

twoclubs

I've put out a cheeze platter for the ratsification process but not processed cheeze just plain cheeze or very good guda which goes well with tad pole wine and will have Mr. Numericals play his symphony notes - each one, all of them beneath the potted palms, in the Palm Court as it were. But first we must hook up Next Month Shining to a respirator.

lelabugosi

Mr.many-numbers.....you are creating a symphony of notes................

david06520

Hee hee hurry hurry home dear

Yes, Juneeeee, Lelabugs has hit the nail on the hammer with his explanation. The man with the keys calls the seats.

PSq yes those learning moments are worth remembering later in life when we start thinking once again that there is nothing left for us to learn! As I understood it, one of the glories of the Checkers was that it didn't matter about model and year, they never changed and all the parts were usable in all the Checkers. But I might be wrong about it. It was a mighty fine car anyway. And (note above) was not a note about Checkers but a note about explanations. See note below...

juneshone

or GGHROOO - gotta get home, running out of oxygen

juneshone

STOP PRESS! Elfie/Hanne is now a grandmother you can see the lovely little girl (Luna) in the elfie profile

lelabugosi

Mr.Le-Squirt (MLS).......Have you had 5 hours sleep? (HUH5HS).........
Juneee- I do believe the driver and his 'beloved' were in the back seat, and Mr.Numbers and his friend were evicted.......though I could possibly, maybe, perchance be mistaken......
Double-batter........Your suggestion is now being ratified by parliament - the rats are in session.......

patsquire

twoclubs

Yes Next Month Shining, I do believe David should Check on That (COT)
Oh Yes, Lela must agree and Hippy would be the one to know how to set up rules and regulations as we have none in Bonga Bonga, thank you Mr. Squirt, for your InPut (IP)

patsquire

Henceforth every May 18 shall be BNLYBHDD in Bugosiland. If lelabug agrees. Also in Bonga-Bonga, if we can get Hippolytus to sponsor the legislation in Parliament.

juneshone

Hi David, Being english I am not entirely sure about these cars but I read they had very roomy back seats. would have been better to let your friends have the back seat for whatever, then you could have enjoyed the movie

twoclubs

Squirty I would reflect on whether or not you might have need of a thermostat or a state of therms or such like as is these instruments for fever detections. Might not you?

I also would like to declare this Bugosi National Let Your Blond Hair Down Day or perhaps a weekend of such hair letting, let alone a cutting or two or three, as it were in honor of Isaac and his gorgeous Blue Boy locks. So be it. BNLYBHDD

patsquire

I don't SEE no note, above, below or anywheres else, about Checker Cabs.

But I do remember the saying, "Two's company, three's a crowd." And four's a bigger (read: worse) crowd.

Also, David### has brought back a distinct moment in my own history. I was about 16 and worked in my Pop's store, a Western Auto and I KNEW EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERY AUTOMOBILE IN AMERICA because a.) they were my passionate interest and 2.) I...worked...in...a...Western...Auto...store! So in walks a middle-age man and says he needs a thermostat. OK, parts like that were kept in a maze of shelves behind the counter, coded by number, and you looked them up in a BIG BOOK. So I turned to the BIG BOOK and asked the man what make, model and year his car was. "A Checker." What? "It's a Checker." And I looked that man in the eye and said There's No Such Thing!

Later I had the chance to reflect on the MANY ways in which a 16-year-old learns things!

gemstone

Tee hee. :)))

david06520

The PSq's mention of that particular movie gives me a ripe chuckle.

Way back when the movie about ol' Young Frankenstein came out
I went to see it in a quartet of us
It was at the Drive-In Movies (young people not being here, I need not explain what that might have been...)
We were in a retired Checker Cab (see note above...)
It had a roomy back seat.
The two of us who wasn't the driver and his girlfriend
Got to watch the movie, sans sound speaker thingy-ma-bobby,
From on top of the car
While the aforementioned had the sound speaker thingy in the window
While they adamantly were not watching the movie
If you
Catch
my
Drift


Consequently, I never knew whether it was a good movie
or
a bad movie
or a funny movie
or
not
Since it didn't make the best
Silent Film
in history...

lelabugosi

Well, I'll just leave you to it then...........try not to argue with each other............

patsquire

Where else could I find such enjoyable company and conversation?

lelabugosi

Oh dearie!....There appear to be five Pat-squirts - all talking amongst themselves!..............

patsquire

And any lady who decides NOT to leave me a tip is welcome back any time, any time at all.

patsquire

True, I do have tip charts posted on the bedroom wall, all the bedroom walls actually, and one on the ceiling. They list SUGGESTED gratuities for desired services, but that's all.

patsquire

Sometimes the ladies are so grateful they leave me a little tip, but that's only AFTER the fact!

patsquire

NEVER EVER!

patsquire

No, no, nonononononono.............don't get the wrong idea! I NEVER charge. NEVER!

lelabugosi

Yes, precious-pebble.....HE charges......so WE must charge!...............

gemstone

I believe there is jigidi rule about NO advertising, psquirt...and in your case one might even consider a charge of fraud...particularly in Bonga Bonga!

grannygoatlady

Oh...the nightmares....the nightmares.............

grannygoatlady

Aaa_chually, Mista Squirt....no one wants to see a Guy on a Pink Bicycle...at all....

patsquire

HUZZAH and HURRAH . . . . . who can argue with sincere sentiment like that, huh?

I tell ya folks, it brings a tear to a big guy's eye, to hear such wisdom, and to be so appreciated by his peers. But hey, nobody wants to see a guy on a pink bicycle cry!

lelabugosi

Logic and truth are the mainsprings of a civilized society......add compassion and honesty, and there we have Bugosiland..........FOR THE TRUTH (and tadpoles) SHALL SET US FREE!.......

grannygoatlady

And who pays any attention to the Big Squirt on his Itty-Bitty Bicycle?.........logical or not.....

grannygoatlady

Ohh....lelabug....when did we start dealing in logic in Bugosi_land?...............

twoclubs

Yes, I'll let them.

lelabugosi

Mr.Le-Squirt.......your comments seem to have taken on an inter-dimensional life of their own.....they are before, they are after, they come, and they go, they question and they answer.......and they defy logic, also as well......

patsquire

(((Sorry doubleclubber, my fault! Let them figure out what I mean.)))

patsquire

Humph! Alors! Not one simple word of greeting, after that nice welcome-back I gave you yesterday, hockey puck?

Sir Silliam Whackopeyer was neither chiro-practor, chiro-podist nor chiro-maniac!

"He was...........my boyfriend!" (Frau Blücher [Cloris Leachman] Young Frankenstein)

twoclubs

Why helloooo psquirt, your warm welcome left me simmering on the back burner since yesterday and I see that I have now steamed you! Such is the way of the Puck.

Why buzz wingz were never credited to Izzy before I do not understand. Such a miraculous discovery and no doubt the prototype for chairycopters and whirlymagigs everywhere.

lelabugosi

Yes, double-batter.......Isaac invented the buzzing wingz, and he was admired for his nice hair..........
It was just such a pity that his juggling career never quite took off......

lelabugosi

old-furniture-not-chomping........I must congratulate you on noticing the desk lamp........many would have mistaken it for a small cannon, or a simple telescope!.......
Mr.Le-squirto.......Silliam Whackosphere was a chiropractor - famous in his chosen profession, but no more........

twoclubs

Gem the poop is in the pudding but I would not suggest it for dessert, unless, of course, Wicca would be willing to taste test first. And do I see the prototype for Uncle Bluebottle's buzzing wingz? What is that which Isaac holds in his hands? And oh, the glorious golden hair!! Make me jealous Izzy!

patsquire

Isaac Wenton-Bugosi, apples, gravity, bah! Bah!! BAH!!! It is well known that Silliam Whakespeare actually was the secret discoverer of gravity. It was his inferior rivals in the nascent world of science in those early science days, who TOOK his rightful discovery from him, SEIZED it, WRENCHED it from his womb (or something like that I guess) and funneled all the credit to this Wenton-Bugosi guy, who didn't have the brains to get out from under a shower of apple-thingys and bird-doo-thingys.

So, one more bogus claim to fame by the infamous Bugosi clan! (Did you ever notice how closely the words bogus and Bugosi are related?)

grannygoatlady

It appears from the picture that not only was Sir I.B-W. good a juggling and determining the gravitational properties of apples and bird poop....BUT was WAY ahead of his time in discovering electricity (note desk lamp).....AND understanding the process of separating light into it's various spectrums using a prism.......ILLUSTRIOUS does not even begin to define nor describe said genius........

lelabugosi

Hee-Hee!.........Unfortunately history does not record the species of the pooping bird.........and here we are concerned solely with facts......sort of.............

gemstone

Or would that be "Poop of Gravity"?

gemstone

I wonder where wicca's great-great-great was...I can see the headlines now, "Crow Offers Proof of Gravity" to what's-his-name...as, of course, Isaac would not have been known at the time...until as a scientist he had conducted many more experiments to test his theory.
