EVEN MORE about the ham spam warning...


What have I started here?!?  Pompey's very own Shep Woolley came up with this ....




She came creeping round the corner
She said "I'm in a jam
I just met a guy with a dictionary  who offered me an anagram"
I said "I see you look so worried
So pale so grey and wan
I hope he didn't try to get you into a wicked plan"

She said "He said had something to show me
He looked like mutton dressed as lamb,
He had  a long black pony tail and a portable wig wam
I felt worried that  he might sing to me  or maybe play the spoons, 
So I nipped straight round that corner where there would be more room"
And now you know my story I think I'd better scram
And try to write a song where the words don't mention spam...

(A bit hammie really... this is the B side of Cliff Richard's  'We don't pork anymore')


Bloody folkies....  However, I sent Shep's offering to  Country Joe.... who came back with...


He walks these hills with a long black pony tail,  
Looking for his portable wig wam
At night you can often hear him wail
"Oh where oh where has my wig wam gone
Oh where oh where can it be
With it's ears cut short and it's tail cut long?
Some call him tee pee"........
hee hee...enough from me....


 (Joe, when you played Woodstock and they announced over the P.A  "Dont touch the brown acid".......did you actually take any notice????)

This has been a public service announcement from The Barking Spider.....
