The Brooklyn Accent Free

Born two years after Charlie Brown's debut; mainframe geek for three decades for a great metropolitan bank, now semi-retired and keeping busy as a spelling and grammar geek for an investment company (with a couple of side gigs). I've identified with Charlie Brown as a kid, Mike Doonesbury in college, Dilbert at work, and Opus in my free time.

    If the piano couldn’t take it, that must be one helluva strong piano bench.

    In my childhood perhaps 60 years ago, I read a bit of verse that went something like:

    I cannot think the gentle germ

    Intends us humans any herm,

    Or that the visiting bacteria

    Have motives in the least ulteria,

    Or even that the vicious virus

    Doth really downright dead desire us;

    It’s just that it’s their nature to

    Subsist on foods like me and you.

    It popped back into my head a decade or so ago, and I’ve been searching for the source of these words of wisdom ever since!

    “I will not say a thing like that.

    I will not say it with a Rat.

    I will not say it with a Goat.

    I will not thus abuse my throat."

    —Pardon me, I believe I suffered a Seuss seizure.

    “Mane name, mane name, doo doo de-doo-doo.

    Mane name, mane name, doo doo doo doo…”

    A good dumb joke, but is it worth being marked for life?
