The Twelve Days of Christmas in Otterville

On the first day of Christmas, mikehunt gave to me: a Buffalo news story.

On the second day of Christmas, Phil L gave to me: two granny pics.

On the third day of Christmas, kvrdave gave to me: three holes in evolution.

On the fourth day of Christmas, das Monkey gave to me: four travelogues.

On the fifth day of Christmas, grundle gave to me: five anti-liberal rants!

On the sixth day of Christmas, Thor Simpson gave to me: six crackers flying.

On the seventh day of Christmas, Danol gave to me: seven dumpster dives.

On the eighth day of Christmas, dork gave to me: nine witty posts.

On the ninth day of Christmas, Bandoman gave to me: lousy law advice.

On the tenth day of Christmas, classicman2 gave to me: ten meaningless non-sequiturs.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, CRM114 gave to me: eleven Bush mockings.

On the twelth day of Christmas, gkleinman gave to me: twelve closed gun threads.

My apologies for not including everyone, or for typing out the whole song...you'll have to extrapolate the repeated portions yourself. First person to post an MP3 of themselves singing the song gets some sort of lame prize.

Not only would I give you lousy law advice, I'd bill you double.

Merry Christmas!

You may want to swap 4 and 5 to match the song's cadence ... or not.

Besides, I have a 5th travelogue in the queue that should be up shortly anyway.

Foiled by my own bad copyedits. Originally, I had found nine witty posts by dork, but later decided one of them was just sad. So I downgraded him to day 8, but forgot to change the song.

First of all, it's whose.

Secondly, Gary Numan is still going strong, sucker! (New album in March - http://www.numan.co.uk/clouds/tourdates.html)

Thirdly, your name is inspired by Groucho Marx, who was old when Mr. Burns was sucking at the teat.

So there!





OK, I'm just bitter 'cause you left me out of your song.

And why does Bandoman not have a number associated with his lousy law advice? If I'm going to be getting my church choir to record this, I need it to be done properly.

Because Bandoman has the capacity to dispense an infinite amount of lousy law device. Why limit his genius?

I'm the king of bad legal advice. You can't stop me. Really, you can't, you have no legal recourse.

"Without no" is a double negative, which means there IS a price in racing silk.

As a law device, you should know that.

That's what I originally thought, but since it was a law question, I asked Bandoman and he told me that it meant there was no prize.

Hmm... that works out to a 0.182% average -- not bad, if I do say so myself.

Edit: Wait, you also need to factor in my contributions to this thread. So.... yeah, still 0.182%.
