    I got it too. And I definitely wasn't an English major.

    It's one of the most famous imagist (was that the name of the movement?) poems.

    There once was a man named Jacque
    Who played bass fiddle with his ****
    With stupendous erections
    He played great selections
    From Brahms, Beethoven and Bach.

    ****! Can I say ****?

    If one will allow me to throw in a point of discussion in an otherwise sophomoric exchange: :smug:

    I can't get over that, other than the fact these instruments are constructed from yard implements, they are otherwise well made.

    The bass, along with the Webber grill Dobro and the Western Flyer wagon dulcimer, show excellent craftsmanship and a great deal of detail and expense.

    Well, the link's still good at least. Maybe he's got a clientele established. Maybe, I can get that chiminea banjo I always dreamed of.
