There once was an antihero named Tesfay
Who wasn’t having his best day
He just hoped the barrel
he was in was quite sterile
but that never did seem his dest-i-nay

    There once was a man name of Seshy
    with Symbiont he didn’t mesh-y
    He’s with three battle hatchets
    To protect his assets
    In case things get rather messy

    How do you suppose N’vil Brigeedo stacks up against William McGonagall, who “has long been regarded as ‘the worst poet in the history of the English language'” according to this Scottish Poetry Library site? If you can stomach his poem “The Tay Bridge Disaster” then N’vil Brigeedo may just be your up of tea.

    1. Chowder Power

      Might be a challenge to the poetry of Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz. (…or have I just crossed the streams? Or is even suggesting ‘crossing the streams’ like, meta-crossing? And, uh, does that mean the streams are going to cross me???)

    2. Pete Rogan

      Truly ridiculous. It takes a special kind of bull-headedness to produce such trash as “The Tay Bridge Disaster” without a smirk or a wink. I see now why Douglas Adams sought to rip such horrendous poetry in a book that has no other referent to it than a subsidiary cause of Earth’s destruction, dolphins or no.

    Re-reading, and I only just noticed what a fancy uniform Khaba has on, with lace at the collar and braids on the sleeves. Can’t wait to see what Diller and Zakzar have on.

    Maybe these books come with their own light source. We have those. The book appears to be shining light onto his face.
    Also, either Tesfay doesn’t understand “be quiet” or Chris doesn’t like thought balloons. Come to think of it, Chris, have you ever used thought balloons?
