When will it be time to WARN West Coast Imperial dwellers that the obvious coming of Lord Tsunami is nigh?

We are now 124 years overdue for a west coast coastal disaster.

His Imperial Majesty should be aware that, unlike His recent hernia surgery, the reattachment of a bicep does not require shaving of the Imperial Pubic Region. If, perchance, our Emperor should awaken to find the Imperial Scrotum to be less forested than before the procedure, He should consider it a strong indication of either incompetence or undo familiarization. Sending the attending barber-surgeons and all their assistants on a visit to the Imperial Oubliette would be appropriate.

Bee-dubya-ell, we now have a new cat-o'-nineteen tails. Instead of knots at the business end of the ropes we have sharp little spiky blades. They get the job done quicker and more efficiently, and besides which - you wouldn't believe how much fun they are to use!

As damage to the Imperial Torturer and Spouse's living quarters are still being assessed from last month's flood, we are taking our fun where we can get it. There is, however, an upside to having no carpet......there is no need to worry about removing stains. Some miscreants leave a bit of a mess in the Oubliette and, try as we may, it isn't always possible to wipe one's shoes completely. The former carpet always showed unfortunate marks.

"Rappy Birthday To You" (a traditional Rap Air) will be sung joyfully throughout the land. However any parodies will be classified as an "Extraditional Air" and the singers and composers will be dealt with in the extraditional way and said works destroyed.It will be Parodies Lost, as they shall be banished from parodies and be thrown outside of the garden gate by whatever Gardening Angel guardin' the gate at the time. The gatekeeper will see to it that the offender maintains a steady gait in the direction of Far Away From Here in full realization that "NOBODY can beat the Rap".......

The Future has arrived and all presents shall now be passed, both Rapped and unwrapped and be given our rapt attention. To those who wrote "Many Happy Returns" on the card, His Emptitude has issued a warning that everything should work, fit or be the right color the first time.

A pie is brought out with four and twenty blackbirds singing the aforementioned Imperial Birthday Anthem to banjo accompaniment. and "The Emp", older and hopefully wiser, roars to the waiter and the chef, "TAKE IT BACK! It's not DONE yet!.... Uh....I mean the song itself was quite well done, but OFF WITH THEIR HEADS anyway, (as well as their feathers for that matter), and bring it back when it's ready. It does SMELL quite delicious, with a delicate essence, like those made in delicatessens."......

Imperial Sire, the great day has already dawned here (all right, so it's half way over) so the staff and inmates of the Imperial Oubliette wish to send felicitations on your Natal Day!

As we speak, the Empiratical Banjo is tuning up in the corner for their rendition of a birthday ode.

The current temperature in the Oubliette is, due to a heatwave in Oz, at somewhat hellish levels (currently 42.6 deg C, or 108.68 of your degrees) so if the banjos sound a little out of tune we humbly apologise. It's difficult to keep strings in tune in this heat.

*Thomas Edison, Leo Szilard, Max Baer, Josh White, Eva Gabor, Sidney Sheldon, Lloyd Bentsen, King Farouk I, Mary Quant, Lesley Nielsen, Jeb Bush, Burt Reynolds, Cheryl Crow, and (God help Us!) Sarah Palin all share Our birth date. So too did George Washington prior to 1752.

*On this date the Empire of Japan (not nearly as nice as Ours) was founded, Emperor Claudius of Rome died or was murdered, Robert Fulton patented the steamboat, Norway declared independence, Glenn Miller was presented with the first gold record, the comic book "Archie" was first published, and China lifted a ban on the works of Aristotle, Dickens, and Shakepeare.

*Rene Descartes, Honore Daumier, Oswaldo Cruz, Sylvia Plath, Patrice Lumumba, Whitney Houston, Peter Benchley, Frank Herbert, and Leon Foucault died.

There are many more things which share Our birth date, such as the first apparition at Lourdes and Abraham Lincoln's mother being in labor. But We are renowned for Our humility and make no show of these things.

We find it unusual that the Imperial Naysayer would doubt Our existence, especially since he has met Us in corpus. We must, therefore, declare that the Imperial Naysayer is an imaginary being, a creature of Our mind, and a strange creature at that. Elsewhere he stated that he had shipped 6.5 tons (6,604.30 kg). We have found out that this load was accurate and consisted of one very beat up aluminum cooking pan, two rickety chairs, and banjos. Over 6,500 kg. of banjos! According to Our Imperial Researchers, the average banjo (should there be such a thing) weighs 10.75 pounds (4.88 kg). Thus 6,500 kg of banjos yields a total of at least 1,332 banjos. We do not know what the Imperial Naysayer intends to do with those banjos, but it would allow 666 people (note the number!) to play "Dueling Banjos" against each other simultaneously.

We believe that the Imperial Naysayer is up to No Good.

Are you sure the kid wasn't salting smelts to revive the unconscious? Would that be considered "a salting within tent", or was he not camping out at the time?....

Being an insomniac, I feel that that unconsciousness should undergo a revival, at least until it's safe to be revived, say, in four years or so. Going "R.I.P. Van Winkle" for awhile seems appealing at the moment.......
