Rainy day

It's raining. There's no one in the MRA. And my husband stole my iPod. I've had to turn to the basest form of self-entertainment: inventing limericks.

There was a MAD librarian
Who wished he could speak Hungarian.
To sort made him sad,
And now he's quite mad,
And thinks that his first name is Marian.

Lame. I know. What else rhymes with librarian?

MAD Musical!

Hey kids! We're going to write a MAD musical. Hopefully, it will include such well-known hits from last summer such as "Part of your world (The MRA song)." Thus far we have thought of our opening song. It's going to be to the tune of "Good Morning Baltimore" from Hairspray! and we have only written the first stanza. Give us your ideas if you have them.

"Good Morning Library"

Good morning library!
Every morning it's so scary
Because I know that when I walk in
It may be hours before I leave again!

We'd also like to rewrite a few Les Mis songs as we feel they are most fitting. Please write new posts with ideas (instead of just responding to this one).

Quote of the Day 6/30

“Even though he was an enemy of mine, I had to admit that what he had accomplished was a brilliant piece of strategy. First, he punched me, then he kicked me, then he punched me again.” --Jack Handey

Quote of the Day 6/29

“If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I’d carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like ‘Hey, look. He’s carrying a soldering iron!’ and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, ‘That’s right, it’s a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice.’ Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.” --Jack Handey

Quote of the Day 6/27

Well, with no more words of the day, let's go with a quote of the day, yes?

“Even though I was their captive, the Indians allowed me quite a bit of freedom. I could walk freely, make my own meals, and even hurl large rocks at their heads. It was only later that I discovered that they were not Indians at all but only dirty-clothes hampers.” --Jack Handey

WotD June 6

Weoddababyeatsaboy. proper noun. This word is used by new parents who want to tell their parents that they've just had a baby boy, but they don't want to use up their cell phone minutes. Poor, poor should have gotten a better cell phone plan (cue T-Mobile music).
