    Nice!

    John Stuart Hughes from Nantucket

    Tried dispensing advice but did muck it.

    Insults we all shouted

    While John Stuart pouted

    And told us to all go and suck it.

    Keith, Keith, no insult from ME!

    I queried John Stuart if he'd

    expelled more than pee.



    (or words to that effect)

    I stopped over at the Quick Links area earlier just to see what some of the folks were reading. I remembered posting something to "Spam for Breakfast," so thought I'd read the thread again.

    Jena, how could I have missed your clever "....tastes like pig balls, smells like feet." ?

    I mean, is that pure poetry or what?

    John Hughes,
    No offense but these are all a given. Or should be to a new writer if they do enough research. Your tips don't offer any new and useful advice. These should be done no matter what you are writing. Excluding a few things. A writer should get the person's attention in the introduction, but you forgot to leave out the part about holding their interst even after the introduction is done. Also, instead of looking for ideas from other sources, the writer should be creating their own and not ripping off another persons ideas. Also when you write an introduction it should be factual and captivating. Just my opinion.

    Enjoyed the poem, Keith. As well as the rest of the comments from everyone. They were funny to read.
