does jimmy buffett like shiny boats too?

maybe you could join his highly successful band
and play some shiny boat songs!

here's some words i just made up, you can use them
if you like.

shiny-shine, shine your boat, all the live long day,
shiny-shiny, shine your boat, but keep the gulls away!

I think those actually are Buffett lyrics. Track 7 of the "son of a son of a sailor" album.

Why is the American flag backwards on Oracle's space-age, 72-foot catamaran?

Plus it's nice that in these lean times someone can spend 500 million on a F*&%ing boat race.
"Ellison, who has spent an estimated $500 million the last 11 years in pursuing, winning and now defending the silver trophy, hopped on board and was sprayed with champagne by the celebrating crew."

Some people don't make that in a year.

Remember when the cup was in New Zealand and that guy smashed it up with
a sledge hammer?
The modern day smiths at the same company that made it originally repaired
it over several months... for free.

At least the days of the 12 metre class held a remnant of nobility and fairness.

"Oracle shuts down Oracle VDI, Sun Rays, and lays off most of the desktop virtualization staff worldwide"

We are sorry we are going to have to lay you off as we spent too much on a boat race.
"Hey don't look so glum"
"Because we WON the boat race!!!"

didn't they sing "the seasick grunt song"?


as a ne-phew of a son of a sailor,
he went out on the sea for adventures,
but heaved a great spew, on the captain and crew,
and scuppered his favourite dentures...





oops - had to correct the lyrics a bit.

No. That song was written by the late, great Nipsey Russell. Everyone knows that.

But any song with the word "Spew" in it, or any phrase related to spewing..is ok in my book.

You are not thinking it through logically....I like the word "Spew" because it can be used in a sentence such as:

"That Pot Roast looks so good I'm liable to spew all over myself".

It's a poem, not a song, but...

A Channel Passage

The damned ship lurched and slithered. Quiet and quick
My cold gorge rose; the long sea rolled; I knew
I must think hard of something, or be sick;
And could think hard of only one thing -- YOU!
You, you alone could hold my fancy ever!
And with you memories come, sharp pain, and dole.
Now there's a choice -- heartache or tortured liver!
A sea-sick body, or a you-sick soul!

Do I forget you? Retchings twist and tie me,
Old meat, good meals, brown gobbets, up I throw.
Do I remember? Acrid return and slimy,
The sobs and slobber of a last years woe.
And still the sick ship rolls. 'Tis hard, I tell ye,
To choose 'twixt love and nausea, heart and belly.

Rupert Brooke
