Chopped liver! I could never forget you. I just didn't have time to put every name in and so you became part of the "everyone" group. But where's your poem? Hmmmmm? (that hmmmmm should be accentuated as Lucy does when asking questions of Schroeder in the Charlie Brown animations).

Goofy
Weasle
Race
Utopia
Bouliabase

Walt Whitman imagining Utopia upon the weasel race of life
Commenced his view of verse made free by long phrased lines
Indeed a verbal Bouillabaisse of that both innocent and richly
Fortified the goofy leaves of grass.

Hero
sublime
indicative
extrapolate
snail

Our hero, the ever-popular Sally Drake, who usualy sold seashells on the seashore, climbed into her snail-driven chariot and rushed to the next destination shown on the map. The wind blowing her hair forward was indicative of the chariot's speed, or lack thereof. But nevertheless, she led the search for the elusive treasure.

"C'mon Fred!" she cried. For in the distance behind her, she saw the cloud of dust kicked up by her arch-rival, William Von-Porcupine. Von-Porcupine, like herself, sought the sublime treasure that awaited the quest winner; and his squirrel driven wagon was so much faster than her chariot.

"Fred, let's extrapolate a little. Now old porky up there can maintain his top speed of 150 feet per minute for about three minutes before his squirrel starts huffing and puffing. He's about a hundred feet ahead of us and we're on the last leg of the quest. But we've three miles to go. Hmmm, If I figure right, that's a little over 15000 feet. His squirrel needs to rest every three minutes, for about two minutes. So he's in fact, traveling at about 450 feet for every five minutes.

You cover the ground at three feet per minute, but never tire. At your rate of speed, in that same five minutes, we travel fifteen feet. So, we need a thousand minutes to complete the journey. He needs, let me figure this out, thirtyu-three minutes to cover the same distance. I think we're going to have to break out the seret weapon...



Ok ladies and gents; I started the story, and included all of the words. Now someone else has to pick it up and finish it. Let's make this a collaberative story. But I think to be fair, everybody who helps, must include the five words as well.

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North
