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...

CG: Ha, ha - I love it! It's got a real appeal.

Cruella: My post in an academic endeavour? Who would have thought.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
