TEN Years and Still No...oh, never mind

Believe it or else, it was on April 27, 2009 that this blog first presented Uncle Blogsy at his finest (or whatever this is.) It seemed appropriate to present a brief, informational bit of verse (reminiscent of James Weldon Johnson’s classic song of skeletal nomenclature, “Dem Bones”.)

This missile fulla books gonna sell for us,

This missile fulla books gonna sell for us,

This missile fulla books gonna sell for us,

Here’s how it works at the Fair!

The art book’s on top of the scrapbook,

The scrapbook’s on top of the old book,

The old book’s on top of the notebook,

The notebook’s on top of the smelly book,

The smelly book’s on top of the new book,

The new book’s on top of the kids’ book,

The kids’ book’s on top of the weird book,

The weird book’s on top of the songbook,

The songbook’s on top of the torn book,

The torn book’s on top of the cookbook,

The cookbook’s on top of the sports book:

Here’s how it works at the Fair!

We all sort out of that missile,

We all sort out of that missile,

We all sort out of that missile,

Here’s how it works at the Fair!

The sports book goes onto the sports pile,

The cookbook goes onto the cook pile,

The torn book goes into the repair pile,

The songbook goes into the music pile,

The dirty book goes into the Blogsy pile,

The weird book goes into the weird pile,

The kids’ book goes onto the children pile,

The new book goes onto the bookshop pile,

The smelly book goes into the recycle pile,

The notebook goes into the blank pile,

The old book goes into the History pile,

The scrapbook goes into the collectibles,

The art book goes onto the art pile,

That’s how it works at the Fair!
