    LOL Blame Canada I like that. You have the beginning of a good parody idea there.

    Anyway - thanks for reading and for the nice feedback. And I'm so glad to hear you read the original Pooh. :) I shall have a special elevenses to celebrate. :)

    Okay - I thought of another poem. :)

    [Based on "Rice Pudding"]

    The Death Star
    (A puzzled kind of poem by an Imperial engineer)

    What is the matter with Palpatine?
    He's having a tantrum and making a scene,
    And he's zapping the head of the Death Star team.
    What is the matter with Palpatine?

    What is the matter with Palpatine?
    We've booked him a date with a cute Falleen
    And some Twi'leks from PlaySith holozine.
    What is the matter with Palpatine?

    What is the matter with Palpatine?
    The Death Star is finished and looking pristine,
    And we're sure we used only the best plastine.
    What is the matter with Palpatine?

    Oh! These are so cute! I've never read Winnie the Pooh (and I hated the Disney versions), but I can still appreciate a good poem about Star Wars! :D

    Thanks, and glad they gave you a laugh. :D Nice to meet you BTW. :)

    NenYim
    Gah! Thanks! That's what happens when I post late at night! I usually check the post to see if it's okay - but didn't have time last night.

    Fixed up now. :)

    And thanks for reading. :)

    Laura_Anu

    Thanks. :) And nice to meet you. :)

    Oh - I don't hate the Disney versions. (I was having Yoda on. ;) ) But I do prefer the originals with the little pencil drawings - mainly because that was what I was brought up on, and I'm a bit of an old fogey. :D Having said that, my kids were all read the original books when they were little, so they prefer them, too.

    Very, very cute, Tahi.

    Absolutely no exposure to Winnie the Pooh whatsoever, but these were absolutely adorable anyway. My hat off to you.

    Tahi, thanks for the laugh! Have you been reading Winnie the Pooh to Anna? I personally like the little books and I like the Disney movies...probably because I grew up with both. I sing the Winnie the Pooh song to my baby a lot. It's very soothing. I-)

    Tahi: Thanks. :) You've read WtP haven't you?

    Years and years and years ago, I'm afraid... but that means I'm in the enviable position of reading the SW versions, enjoying them, finding the originals, enjoying them, then going back to the SW versions and enjoying them all over again... :D :cool:

    As with that new one! :D [face_laugh] [:D] :)

    Yep, I do read them to little Anna. My personal favourites are the King's Breakfast and Disobedience. My kids used to love the bit where the King says: "Butter, eh?" and then slides down the bannisters. LOL

    Thrawn
    The poems are timeless really aren't they? Some of the originals are actually quite clever. That "Rice Pudding" one for instance - great dramatic irony there. :)

    We used to play Poohsticks with the kids when they were little - it's a lot of fun. But we never found an Eeyore. :(

    Have you read Spike Milligan's Milliganimals?

    And, Poohsticks! :D

    Last played that at about 1am at a friend's twenty-first! :D

    Oh you must read Milliganimals, Thrawn.
    From Sydney Zoo
    An alligator
    Was put on board a Bristol Freighter.
    He ate the pilot and the navigator,
    Then asked for more
    With mashed potato.

    That's from memory, so the line breaks may be wrong. LOL

    And:
    A baby sardine saw her first submarine.
    She was frightened and looked through a peephole.
    "Oh come, come, come," said the sardine's mum.
    "It's only a tin full of people."

    :D Dear, brilliant Milligan.

    LOL Poohsticks at a party. The mind boggles. :)

    Blended
    Hi! How's things - great to see you here. And thanks. :) Ah Artoo - yes. Where would the whole SW shebang be without the little guy?

    Yay for the All Blacks (or is it Owll Blaecks?)

    They do the haka like no one else! :p

    You're on the button with that. :)

    JediTristan
    Ah - the All Blacks. I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love it when they play good expansive rugby - to me that's art. But I hate the whole professional ethos as it's all become very calculated and whingey. I have a wonderful memory of Jonah Lomu absolutely destroying England single-handedly in the 1995 World Cup semi - that to me was when the ABs were at their best.

    I think the problem now in NZ is that the ABs have always been "gods" to an extent and so they get a lot of sponsorship - while other sports and especially women's sports are grossly underfunded. Take the Black Sox - who have won the World Chamionship in baseball for about 3 years. Do they get much publicity? No way. Nor do the Black Ferns - the women's rugby team.

    Anyway - excuse the rant - but it does put me off the ABs a bit. The haka however is another kettle of fish. I LOVE the haka - when it's done properly that is. It's meant to be a challenge and shouldn't be performed for entertainment - which it sometimes is IMO. Buck Shelford and Tane Randell led it brilliantly. In fact sometimes the haka is better than the game itself. :)

    Oh, these are fantastic! Winnie-the-Pooh is classic! (The cartoon is classic Disney, and the books are classic literature! ;) ) I actually now regret that I've only read a tiny bit of the books. I'll have to get my hands on them now. :D

    All are great, but my favorite is definitely "The Death Star", probably followed by "Blondie" or "Tenneniel Djo".

    Excellent work! Can't wait for the next! ^_^

    Indeed, that haka is better than a lot of things...*drools*

    I am an American and not much of a sports watcher, so forgive my ignorance, but I can see where your rant is coming from.

    Happens when sports gets mixed in with national and cultural identity, hey?

    I agree. Title IX, baby! (Title IX is the supreme court decision, I believe, that makes schools/universities support male/female sports equally, which means that if there is no male slot in the sport, there is no female sport, unless it's field hockey.)

    0h, whoa.

    'Title IX' is an inside joke between my friend (who happens to be Maori and geneologically a princess) and myself. Who knew it would come in this context? *dies laughing*

    I LOVE coincidences like that!

    teehee!

    LOL and ka pai. :) Yep - it's funny how often you get coincidences like that. Life is indeed strange and the world is small.

    It IS true that sport and national identity often get twisted together. That's the case here. You can trace the connection back to the 1905 AB tour of the UK. In fact I heard an interesting paper in a conference a few years ago that focused on it. Some folks even reckon you can predict which party will get into power from whether the ABs have a good year or not. LOL

    Anyway - here is another hum.

    ****************
    [Based on "The Zoo"]

    How to deal with Jedi
    (A poem by Jabba full of useful ideas and sound advice)

    There are vornskrs and raging rancors and banthas fat and thin
    For punishing pesky Jedi, when they stick their noses in.
    Some hire Mandalorians and offer a prize bounty,
    But I feed mine to the Sarlacc who lives in the Dune Sea.

    On Yavin there are beetles that can nibble away their skin.
    The Mon Cal find krakana, then throw their Jedi in.
    And the latest trick from Myrkr is an ysalamiri,
    But I feed mine to the Sarlacc who lives in the Dune Sea.
