Jabberwocking by MMMmmm... on 18 October 2007 11:04pm
 
I love the original most, but that is why it was so much fun to play:

Hungerwooky

'Tis brillig and the slithy toes
do gyre and gimble all the wabe
so mimsy are the burblegoes
and the moonmomes outblabe

Beware the Hungerwook, my son!
The teeth that clench, the claws that snatch!
Beware the Glubeglube bird, and shun
The furminous nanderhatch!

He took his vortal fork in hand:
Long time the hankxsome foe he sought --
So rested he to take a pee,
And sit right on the spot...

And as he sat right on the spot,
The Hungerwook with mouth of flame,
Came pither-pathering, whiffle-rathering,
looking slight of frame...

There was no burbleling - it was greatly missed,
There was not much to fork
So sad was he who sat in his pee:
He felt much like a dork.

To culinary school, To culinary school!
He cide, blahooing his way on home,
From gruyere to pear and everywhere --
I'll eat my way through Rome!

And so he learned the arts of eats:
the eats of arts in fact;
his culinary skills slurpassed the rest,
And his student loan's on track...!

O frabjious day! Callooh! Callay!
Let's eat his yumptious snack!

'Tis brillig and the slithy toes
do gyre and gimble all the wabe
so mimsy are the burblegoes
and the moonmomes outblabe

*I would imagine many of you may know, but for those who don't - the original poem is Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll of Alice in Wonderland fame, and is most highly recommended!*

Here's the original (and I recommend the Wikipedia page on the poem as well!):

Jabberwocky

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he soughtó
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Can Jabberwock play Left Field for the Red Sox and sit Manny Ramirez down? Manny is in the Red Sox Nation doghouse.
