Boston Charlie


Many thanks to all and sundry for your support of Jess and her goal to win the ACM photo contest. Competition is stiff, but the votes are not counted until midnight the 15th. If you haven't voted please do so here


2.    Pogo


Walt Kelly was always in top form during the holidays. My favorite holiday tune is Pogo classic Boston Charlie.  Mrs. T doesn't not believe there was ever a Boston Charlie Christmas song.  She won't see this , but perhaps you remember the tune but have forgotten the words.

Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
Walla Walla, Wash., an' Kalamazoo!
Nora's freezin' on the trolley,
Swaller dollar cauliflower alley-garoo!

Don't we know archaic barrel
Lullaby Lilla Boy, Louisville Lou?
Trolley Molly don't love Harold,
Boola boola Pensacoola hullabaloo!

Bark us all bow-wows of folly,
Polly wolly cracker 'n' too-da-loo!
Donkey Bonny brays a carol,
Antelope Cantaloupe, 'lope with you!

Hunky Dory's pop is lolly gaggin' on the wagon,
Willy, folly go through!
Chollie's collie barks at Barrow,
Harum scarum five alarm bung-a-loo!

Dunk us all in bowls of barley,
Hinky dinky dink an' polly voo!
Chilly Filly's name is Chollie,
Chollie Filly's jolly chilly view halloo!
-Walt Kelly- Pogo

Bark us all bow-wows of folly,
Double-bubble, toyland trouble! Woof, woof, woof!
Tizzy seas on melon collie!
Dibble-dabble, scribble-scrabble! Goof, goof, goof!


3. The Onion:

Tomorrow the last print copy of the Onion goes to press.  From here on out it's a digital world.  You can bookmark this page for your regular fix.
