Missouri review?  As in reviewing whether or not to stay in Missouri?

Just send in 10 pages of hair metal lyrics about the medical field and see if you win the poetry prize.

As a University-qualified poet, I too have won the Jerkoff prize many times. Both for my work with my nib, and for poetry.

CSB: I worked for a number of years for a small commercial printer. One year we had a contract to print The Denver Quarterly, the literary magazine for the writing program at the University of Denver. They were big on experimental poetry where

was part of the pome. I think the issue also had a story about a dog by a guy who once had a drink with Neal Cassady.

Our truck driver had hurt his back and so they needed me to help with the delivery. At last, my chance at literary recognition! I dragged the boxes from the truck up two flights of stairs with a bent hand truck to the little office. "Hey, where you want these books at?" I asked. The girl at the desk didn't even look up. "Oh, stack them against the wall there."
So I did.

Go for it, Subby.

I'm drunk right now but I believe in you!

The best advice I can give is everyone will hate you, so you might as well as go for it. Do it.

I need another drink

Or do some limericks.

There once was a Doctor of Medicine
Whose work was a ripoff of Edison
His underlings said it:
"He took all the credit!"
Now no one knows which hole his head is in.

We all know about percolation...liquid going through soil something something ⁸ 3/2 derivative...and coffee so shiatty that it makes cowboy coffee taste amazing.

(Raises hand) I have a battered old enameled one I use when camping. Nothing like chewy coffee from the campfire on a cold morning.

I have never used one. But I remember my grandparents using one. I was born before Mr Coffee. As impossible as that is.

It's all my folks drank when I was a kid. It's no wonder I hated coffee until I was an adult and learned how to brew it differently.

You're not missing anything. It really is the nastiest way to brew coffee. Nasty.

Poetry option #2: Ask anyone taking Seroquel if you can borrow their poetry about it.  You will have to edit it down to the 10 page limit.

I served with Jack Perkoff. I knew Jack Perkoff. Jack Perkoff was a friend of mine. You sir, you're no Jack Perkoff.

MikeyFuccon: Are the Giggity and Weeners tags taking the weekend off?


Giggitty Weeners would be a great band name. Live, Saturday, Giggitty Weeners at the Metrodome! This name could never get old. Never. With album titles like Jimminy Jillickers and Egad Gadzooks and Knob Goblin Cobbler.
