For the stronger we our houses do build,
The less chance we have of being killed.
--The Tay Bridge Disaster, William McGonagall
Yesterday Chris Hunt, creator of the lipsmacking-good McGonagall Online (oh, go ahead and give it a look--I'll wait for you) stopped by and added a very interesting comment to my Septemer 29, 2005 post, which happens to be one of my favorite blog entries. Even if you read the post two months ago, I urge you to read it again and enjoy another good belly laugh about the best bad poet of all time, Scotland's* breathtakingly clueless William McGonagall.
Be sure not to miss Chris Hunt's comment, which wraps everything up nicely by answering a couple of questions I brought up in my post.
*At the risk of offending any Scots readers who might stop by, that country has a lot to answer for. McGonagall's poetry has an "ick" factor exceeded only by haggis.
