For My Big Lil Brother.

For all his smarts, and trust me he's got 'em. In fact I think he may have somehow gotten some of my share of the family brains.....  (Thankth Igor!)

*ahem* anyways, for all his smarts, my Big Lil Brother's education is slightly lacking in some areas, it has become apparent.

For example, altho he had heard of Jimi Hendrix, he was unaware he was a black man.  *sigh*  c'mon m&d there's some basic stuff kids need to know!!

And so, today, in the theme of educating my Lil Bro, I give you

Too Many Daves (by Dr Suess)
Did I ever tell you that Mrs McCave
Had twenty-three sons and she named them all Dave?
Well, she did. And that wasn't a smart thing to do.
You see, when she wants one and calls out, "Yoo-Hoo!
Come into the house, Dave!" she doesn't get one.
All twenty-three Daves of hers come on the run!
This makes things quite difficult at the McCaves'
As you can imagine, with so many Daves.
And often she wishes that, when they were born,
She had named one of them Bodkin Van Horn
And one of them Hoos-Foos. And one of them Snimm.
And one of them Hot-Shot. And one Sunny Jim.
And one of them Shadrack. And one of them Blinkey.
And one of them Stuffy. And one of them Stinkey.
Another one Putt-Putt. Another one Moon Face.
Another one Marvin O'Gravel Balloon Face.
And one of them Ziggy. And one Soggy Muff.
One Buffalo Bill. And one Biffalo Buff.
And one of them Sneepy. And one Weepy Weed.
And one Paris Garters. And one Harris Tweed.
And one of them Sir Michael Carmichael Zutt
And one of them Oliver Boliver Butt
And one of them Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate....
But she didn't do it. And now it's too late.

I too must suffer the same sad fate. It's too late to name my kids anything nearly as cool as our Beloved Dr Seuss comes up with. I'm heartbroken to be sure. 

I nearly had Captain agreeing to Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate. Then he woke up.  :OD

  1. in my defence, I didn't think Jimi Hendrix was white, I had just previously never considered his race.
