Through the rabbit-hole

It is always the same. Something catches one's eye... it might be the fish in the aquarium recently installed behind the bar at the Old Entomologist (as a substitute for a big TV screen showing live sports, which chief barmaid Evangeline von Holsteren reckons will "bring in the wrong crowd" and the money doesn't enter into it). What a relief that it is not actually a mirror as some less astute people might initially have thought. So one brings out the handy pocket lithography plate and sketches an impression of their amusing antics.

Not until the negatives come back from the lab does one realise that the view is full of orbs. Are they in cahoots with the fish? We're down the looking-glass now, people.

Revealing our sinister plans is NOT HELPING!!!

Also consilience (consillyness?).

Down the looking-glass?

Or just in your cups?

Down the looking glass
And around the plate
Left at the Goat Herd
And head up-state

At the bridge take the river
Stay straight at the fork
You should care for your liver
'Til you get to New York

You'll need a boat for the ocean
And a train for the tracks
But check with the Laotian
'Cause he still has my slacks

What is especially distracting when you're trying to get quietly smashed is all that cahooting.

They just have to show up everywhere.
Sluts.

Sorry to get D-KW all hot-&-bothered in anticipation. In way of compensation, present this voucher to Mrs Miggins' Pye Shoppe for a sausage-in-a-bun.

Don't pretend he doesn't look hot.
