Abbas Threatens Success Of Mid-East Peace Talks

Nothing Else Can Save Them SOS

by nonamedufus
SIRTE, LIBYA (nonamedufusnews) - The Palestinians, backed by Arab powers say they will withdraw from the latest round of middle east peace talks if Abbas is allowed to reform.

It would appear Arab diplomats are taking a hard line having heard rumours that the Swedish pop quartet might be getting back together. "Mama Mia" said Philip J. Supertrooper, U.S. assistant secretary of state for public affairs. "We will continue to work with the parties to advance negotiations. That's the name of the game here."

Threat to mid-east peace and music lovers everywhere

But the American attempt at diplomacy had little impact on Arab diplomats. "Listen, our Abbas has been around a lot longer than those shitty Swedish songsters" said the other Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Dancingqueen.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu couldn't bring himself to agree with the Palestinian position. "Knowing me, knowing you" he said "I think Abbas is about to meet his Waterloo. I love the other Abbas, the singing Abbas. Although if they reunited I'm sure it would be for the money, money, money."

For her part, and speaking on behalf of Anni-Frid "Frida" Lyngstad, Agnetha Faitskog indicated she was pleased to hear of Netanyahu's support. "If we can interrupt Bjorn and Benny from counting their money and convince them to take a chance on me then the winner takes it all, know what we mean?"

Would you take a chance on him?

"I have a dream" said Abbas. "And that's a reunited homeland not a reunited Swedish pop group. This is all so confusing. Why didn't they call themselves by some other palindromic name like kayak or racecar or straw warts?"

Ha! Clever Nomie! Clever!

Straw Warts? I think that is the moniker for them! They should wear it proud.

And I still think Lady Gaga's "Alejandro" song is rip off between Madonna's "La Isla Bonita" and ABBA's "Fernando."

And I can only stand Fernando of the three.

He's a cool dude.

Quirks: I'm glad you enjoyed it. I was beginning to think I was the only one that made the connection. And Lord help us all if ABBA reunites.

Sooner or later somebody's gonna have to take a chance on somebody else. Only you could find the humor in all this!

Boom Boom: Well, we can always hope I suppose. Hey! I'm about half-way through "our" book!

Hopefully, Benny and his jets won't be bombing either of the Abbas.

00dozo: Hopefully. And maybe peace in the region will be Bjorn again!

Another good one, Dufe. Reunited Homeland would be a good name for a rock band...or not.

P.S. I love the way you play with words.

Leeuna: Thanks, Leeuna. I enjoy playing with words. At least I have someone with which to play.

Where's the romance? How about strawberry warts? Better, no?
nonamedufus said…
Linda: Strawberry Warts might be more romantic (although there's not much romance when it comes to warts) but it's not a palindrome.

I do believe all of this could have been avoided had they gone with the name Yo, banana boy.

As they say, hindsight is 20/20.

May I quote this in my thesis? I think you're on to something here...

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
