"I was once happy and carefree and young
And I lived in a place called the Valley of Vung
And nothing, not anything ever went wrong"

Till I read Sluggy Freelance and found it was long...

It went onward and upward and just wouldn't stop
And I read it from bottom right up to the top -
And I read it from top right down to the bottom
From Bun-Bun's first stabby to Nerd-boy's last "Got-em"
(When bal-lis-ta firing brought down the bird
And Torg's crowing to Riff by Daebo was heard)
So I finally caved and signed up to the forum
And wrote down an intro that tried to conform-um
Inspired by the verses that oft-times I'd smiled at
I formed up some doggerel and put on my hard-hat
For hearing of Shlock and his death in deep spaces
Gave shivers when thinking of future Oasis,
Her powers now altered, her anima brighter
Will she be the end-of-the-world firelighter?

duffbeer: with apologies to proper poets everywhere and the first 3 lines are copyright Dr Seuss who had trouble in getting to Solla Sollew

Welcome to the forum duffbeer!

Wow, poetry without being pestered? What type of witchcraft is this?!? Well whatever sorcery it may be, it most definitely deserves a special gift!

Um... AH! Here you go. It's a glowing green stick.

Not sure exactly what it is, but...I'll call it a vial of anti-sunlight. If you set it by some plants, after awhile the leaves start falling off. Also works on mammals. Their foliage will also fall out after a time of exposure to the vial. Wait, you don't call that foliage do you? Not sure why, but I can't recall the memory of what humans call those thin "leave" on mammals... Eh, it's not important.

Anyway, enjoy!

Many thanks Zillatain. The stick is incredible! The top of my head is now completely free of any foliage! Also my memory has been altered so that I now believe that this change did not happen overnight. Wow.

I am burying the stick in the middle of the patch of brambles at the bottom of my garden in the hope of producing green-and-blackberries (chocolate flavour) in autumn.

AH HA! Feathers! That's what human foliage is called.

Well, I'm pretty sure...

I think...

Yeah, yeah, that's it...

Hmmm...

"Fur"

Nice try Spirantz, but I'm not falling for some word you made up.

Fur... HA!

Zill, it's things like this that make me think you might be Leah's mom.

Fur is real, but now that I think of it, I don't think most humans have it. I'm more muppet than a man, so I'm a bad point of reference.

Maybe it's bananas? Those are long and sometimes blonde.
