00. Apropros of absolutely nothing that's been written earlier today no sir I have this particular Elementary schoolyard taunt stuck in my head, all singsong-like:
Kindergarten baby
Stick your head in gravy
Something something something something
And sell it to the Navy
It's no Ogden Nash -- I mean, really, rhyming "baby" with "gravy" and later on, "Navy"? At best, one can describe it as a flawed masterwork. No doubt some 7-year-old was very proud of themselves the day they chose to denigrate their Kindergarten brethren and sistren (sistern?) but the fact remains that I can't for the life of me remember the third, and probably critical, line in the quatrain. All I can come out with is "wash it out with sauerkraut" and while it's a nice advanced internal rhyme, it just doesn't jibe as it should. Any suggestions?

01. I also realized today that, when you think of it, "velveeta" is a truly obscene word. That is all.
