    Spiteful forums rampage against indiscriminate postings by Bobo.

    Therapy aids and abets a poison pen atmosphere as Bobo flails about in word counting misery.

    Bereft and befuddled, Bobo continues in a purple funk wondering why there aren’t more words to consume. He’s grown weary of a limited diet of punctuation.

    “Eating punctuation’s bad for your health,” the food specialist said. “Not only does it have to many carbs, but it also can ruin your cholesterol and contain various diseases if not properly cooked.” But Bobo didn’t head their warning. He continued to eat punctuation, awaiting a new low carb version.

    The low carb version was released to stores, but Bobo had to rendezvous with 007, and had already selected his food. He recieved scarlet fever from a particularily moldy bagel, and now shows a pinkish hue. It looks like poor Bobo will have to get his coat dyed once again.

    50 words, no puctuation eaten.

    “Poor Bobo,” they said, sorrow in their voices, “He struggles to count and keep under fifty.” But Bobo was clever and had his own ways. He copied and pasted from Microsoft Word. From there he used word count and adjusted accordingly. And that is how his word count is fifty.

    "Don't you want to go to the spam creations contest?!" Gene says softly, winking and moving her hands slowly to my favorite spot just below her belly button.

    "Uh huh..." I respond and for the next fifteen minutes I'm convinced I really do.

    Mission - 50 words


    "Ready," said the lieutenant.

    "Yeah, me, too," I replied, without looking up. "Let's do it."

    All the training and prep comes down to this, I thought. Parachute jumps, demolitions, map work, language lessons. Just about everything I needed...

    ... except a good course on disarming Nazi guards.


    "Aim," said the lieutenant.

    Spam.

    Spam is what it is when you just write stuff for the sake of writing stuff cause you wanna write stuff and have people see the stuff that you wrote like this big run on sentence. Either that or because you want posts, but are too witless for intelligent conversation.

    Spam is unidentifed factions of questionable consumer quality flesh ground up and pressure cooked into gelatinous gobules. When critical mass is achieved it is pressed into cans which are impossible to open because that stupid key always breaks off half way round the turn.

    This actually is a digestive blessing.

    Consider the lowly can of Spam -- maligned by nutritionists, Englishmen, Vikings and those whose dexterity does not include the simple act of turning a key.

    It shows no jealousy toward its shapely corned-beef cousin, who slides so persuasively from her tapering garment at the slightest inducement.

    All hail Spam!

    You've been watching too much Monty Python!

    Ah! The romance of corned beef. Imported from Brazil which conjures up visions of gauchos galloping across the pampas with their bolos twirling.

    The elegant tin entices the shopper with an easily identifiable trophy head on the wrapper. It's a cow! Or maybe a steer? No matter, it's not Spam!
