It is a little evil, young Eldorion, for folk (even fellow Purists) to eavesdrop the private conversations of others! I trust, though, you won't pass on our secrets!!!

Wise Odo
You could pick a better venue for a private conversation. Remember: [url=http://www.irishhistorylinks.net/pages/Troubles_Images/LooseTalkPoster.jpg:a6wzq3ep]Loose-talk costs lives[/url:a6wzq3ep]!
I thought loose lips sunk ships? (Some people seem to think it was loose slips loose tits - but that's clearly wrong - or is it? :? )

Wise Odo
Clearly looseness is to be avoided in all its forms. <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />
Ah! The point has truly been made, methinks! :ugeek:

Wise Odo
I humbly acknowledge your wisdom in this matter, Wise Odo.
The Puerilist Maturists shall prevail :P :lol: .

By the way Mr Banks, Wise Odo is right. Ignore the petty poltroons who disdain your witty ditties.

Yes, GB, no doubt you're right. But I still think Wise Odo is being too tolerant about this. As you know, I prefer to fight fire with fire. And if I catch any of those traitors referring to Wise Odo's poems as twaddle, rubbish, stupidity, vapid nonsense, intellectual dross, puerile baby-stuff, vainglorious puffs of bilious smell-gas, or by any other derogatory term, I might just have to ask you to pass on your techniques for giving wedgies over the internet! That's how serious I am about this!
Not that I'm one to stir the pot here or anything (nor wishing to be in receipt of the painful sounding internet wedgie) but I was under the impression Wise Odo 'quoted' poetry rather than made them up, in fact I believe the last one was attributed to a nursery rymne and before that Lear and Byron. Surely there's is no claim here that Wise Odo has been deceiving us all this time? :o
If he has, perhaps it is Wise Odo who is next in line for an internet wedgie. <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />
Yes - I merely quote - but always from memory (or did I just dream it?) Actually, when you're channeling these things, you sometimes take on a kind of ownership. It's a scientifically proven fact - cause and effect, I believe, though I'm no scientist. When and if Halfwise gets back, he'll back me up on this, and no doubt be able to explain it. (You see, it's all to do with [i:765i2lh6]physics[/i:765i2lh6] and not [i:765i2lh6]psychics[/i:765i2lh6]!)(And, GB, please think this out before you rush in with all your chic Taotic guns blazing! I'm alluding to very grown-up matters here! :x )

Wise Odo
Dear Wise Odo,

GB wished Eldorion a Happy 1000th Post Birthday... but he seems to have overlooked mine. Does this imply GB loves Eldo more than me? :cry:

Odo Banks
Dear Mr Banks,

Can you really blame him? Everyone knows Eldorion is lovable. Yes, his penchant for Loremastering, for facts and figures and clear thinking, can be somewhat tiresome at times, but I can forgive him that. He means well. :roll:

Wise Odo
Dear Mr. Banks

You should know that you are very lovable. Your antics, your ability to make people laugh, and the fact that you still make qualitative contributions in light of the preceding two points makes you very cool.

Your friend,
Dear Wise Odo,

You should know that Loremastering is a form of wisdom.

I should, you know, Eldorion, but it doesn't suit my mood just now, so I'm afraid I just [i:2nb4181g]must[/i:2nb4181g] shun your Loremastering - but only until the mood passes! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> (I hasten to add that I shun you only with the greatest regret! :cry: Most folk would agree you of all people deserve better!)

Wise Odo
Dear Eldorion,

You are most kind. I would expect nothing less of you. (Frankly, I find your Loremastering to be of the highest quality, the very highest! :geek: )

Odo Banks
Dear Wise Odo,

I hope the mood passes, for I am sure you could be a great Loremaster if you put your mighty mind to the task. :mrgreen:

- Eldo
Dear Odo,

You are very kind, my dear Hobbit! :oops: I hope only that your own greatness is not forgotten. <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />

- Eldo
Dear, dear, Eldorion! Ah! I am fond of you! <img src='/images/smileys/smile.gif' border='0' alt='Smile Smilie' /> As to putting my mind to Loremastering - as you know, I prefer [i:2y1ma72v]channelling[/i:2y1ma72v] and [i:2y1ma72v]intuition [/i:2y1ma72v]to such archaic methods as [i:2y1ma72v]thinking[/i:2y1ma72v] or [i:2y1ma72v]studying[/i:2y1ma72v]. My methods have got me to where I am today, after all, why need I change now? But thanks for thinking of me.

Wise Odo
Dear Eldorion,

Never fear, True Chum, I have not forgotten my greatness - though it is kind of you notice! 8-)

Odo Banks
Dear Wise Odo,

Au contraire, it is intuition which is archaic. Thinking and studying raises the mind even higher, though perhaps yours does not need a more elevated position, what with you already being so wise. Who knows what might happen if you became any wiser? :P

- Eldo
Dear Odo,

Truly, I couldn't have missed it. Your greatness is evident wherever you post. :mrgreen:

- Eldo
We have been discussing things (privately) and have decided We think you're a curious chap, Eldorion, and while always charming, your ideas - your psycholgical perambulations as such - are surely [i:2q66535c]'quaint' [/i:2q66535c] to say the least! We even suspect you may be suffering under a Mutliple Personality Disorder - not that there's anything wrong with that!

We have spoken. :ugeek:

Wise Odo
Odo Banks
Dear Wise Odo and Odo,

I am rather surprised to see you two speaking as one, but it's good. The whole situation does, however, make the suspicion of MPD a bit ironic. On the other hand, they say [i:1c9qujdx]it takes one(s) to know one[/i:1c9qujdx], so maybe I shouldn't be surprised. :mrgreen: :geek: I thank you for your kind words about me. <img src='/images/smileys/smile.gif' border='0' alt='Smile Smilie' />

- Eldo
My Dear Odo (not the "Wise One" :P ), I beg your most benevolent forgiveness for missing your 1000th post day :oops: . I had indeed intended to note it when it occurred a few days ago but I was distracted by other activities (of a familial nature). Hence I bestow upon you my beneficent blessings and the honourary ranking of [b:1l2kyl3a]Wizard[/b:1l2kyl3a] for which your immense intuitiveness is eminently suited :mrgreen: .

We're so gentlemanly, aren't we? :P
I try! I really do feel like crap for missing Odo's day :oops: .

I'm sure it's okay. We (I didn't say anything about it either) can make it up when he gets to 1500. :mrgreen: Given how much he posts, I'm sure it won't be long. :lol:
Alas! The horse has bolted, GB! The stable door left swinging! :cry:

Odo Banks
Intuitively, I feel an error here somewhere, my friends...

I certainly hope Mr Banks hasn't been including [i:1g8cg39f]my [/i:1g8cg39f]posts with Mr Banks posts!? Using the mere similarities of name to confuse us all!

I have not counted them all (you know by now I don't resort to using such ridiculous aids to wisdom as mathematics - unless I'm in the mood for that kind of nonsense) but I swear Mr Banks has [b:1g8cg39f]NOT [/b:1g8cg39f]done a thousand, and to include my [i:1g8cg39f]own[/i:1g8cg39f] in his count (to boost his figures), as I suspect is what has happened here (and here I assume Mr Banks is a Male - but we can't be sure about [i:1g8cg39f]anything[/i:1g8cg39f] here anymore, I feel), is something of an outrage! :shock:

Mr Banks, you should be ashamed of yourself! :x

I'm reminded now of Emily Dickinson's memorable words!

Those who pretend to be someone else,
Whether man, or dwarf, or hobbit, or elf...
Oh Jack be nimble! Jack be quick!
Don't let him get away with it!
Grab and knot his foul tongue tight!
His hot blood drained until he's white!
His eyeballs poked! His innards drawn!
His gonads mounted on the wall!
And when he begs mercy from all and one,
He shall surely fail, due to his tongue!

Wise Odo

NB Maybe I'm channeling Emily Bronte? :oops:
Up next on THM*: Keeping up with the Bankses: Inside Spamming. :mrgreen:

Oh [i:2b7ptnw1]you[/i:2b7ptnw1]! 8-)
C'mon, you know you would make an awesome reality TV show. :lol: I'd watch it and I don't watch TV except for football and the Olympics.

I can see it now! Yes - but something Mr Banks might go in for, I'm afraid - a little bit [color=#FF0040:2mszo212][i:2mszo212]obscure[/i:2mszo212][/color:2mszo212] for me).

Wise Odo
Get ready to start bringing in the Emmys! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />
I'm too humble, as you know, to suggest that I could ever win literally hundreds of Emmy Awards.... 8-) I don't even see the [i:3iaajid6]remote [/i:3iaajid6]possibility... <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />

Odo Banks

(Just between you and me and the gatepost, Eldo, we [i:3iaajid6]know [/i:3iaajid6]I'm a shoe-in. And to think of me back in my bucolic younger days when I spent so much of my life rush-cutting in Rushock Bog (below Needlehole). Thatching was a good start in life for me, I feel. Because it learned me to be humble. Ah! But now the callouses are gone, and my hands have long been soft and supple. You know, in a way I miss those back breaking days submerged to my knees in stinking bog, the flies crawling up my nose, the leeches sucking my legs dry... Hey![i:3iaajid6] No, I don't![/i:3iaajid6] Give me an Emmy any time...! :x :x :x)
Now THERES a reality show I would watch :lol: .

That sounds like a cross between Dirty Jobs and Man vs. Wild, but infinitely more awesome. :lol:

(If those aren't shown in Australia: Dirty Jobs is about a guy who goes around to places, often farms, and does disgusting jobs. Man vs. Wild is this guy who runs around in the wilderness and talks about 'survival tips' in extreme situations.)
Eldo we don't have shows like that down under, we do have our air share of wilderness and jobs like that. Did you know fluid, including fluids with mysterious smelly lumps in them, flow down from the top of the world and... well, you can guess where they end up, I'm sure! The cleaning up is never ending! That's why there's a strong employment rate in Australia.

But no, actually we do have those shows down here too, and I don't mind the idea of [i:1rqmwkwn]other [/i:1rqmwkwn]hobbits getting down and dirty and calloused. But me, nah, I like the high life - you know, seed-cakes, (never-kissed) crispy bacon, Old Winyard...and the occasional puff of finest Old Toby ([i:1rqmwkwn]just don't tell my fans or the Emmy Institute people, I said that![/i:1rqmwkwn] :shock: )

Odo Banks
You seem to have many different sides, dear Odo. Your series will undoubtedly go on for many years to explore all of them. <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />
Ah! Yes, I have more sides (a [i:cpvsjnsz]lot[/i:cpvsjnsz] more) than a many-sided thingamajig! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />
Hello Wise Odo, I havnt posted here for a bit and in fact I have no great question for you, nor some witty remark to stimulate you but I was afraid you might feel I was neglecting to drop in on your profound (and somewhat surreal) wisdom. So may I humbly request a burst of your inimtable poetry- you have no idea how much they cheer me up <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />
How can I resist? Let me think, oh yes, T.S. Elliot.

[i:3qfvs8hf]Once there was a crabbit hydrant,
The doggy said to he,
"Oh you are so redly vibrant,
A revelation to see."
He said, "There's no denyent,
Your words do very please,
But don't you go and tryant,
To cock yourself and pee!
For I am never pliant,
To disgusting liberties!
Hey! Should ye come and tryant,
I'll punch the shite from thee!"
And so the doggy client,
Wisely sped away from he!
(A hydrant with fists a'flyant,
Ah, tis a dangerous mystery!) [/i:3qfvs8hf]

Wise Odo
<img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> Another Wise Odo triumph of poetry, Your library of lost (and suspiciously apt) classic poetry is a wealth of treasures.
I merely draw from the depths of the Great Poet Pool, making some allowance for the vagaries of memory! It has been here before, it will all go on after us! :ugeek:
Wise Odo, I have a problem. There is this other fellow on this board, goes by the name of Odo would you believe (he's quite a cheeky fellow in that regard), who has on other threads been most harsh in his criticism of your good self and of your poetry, but otherwise I find him a perfectly respectable fellow- should I simply ignore his comments regarding your Wise self or should something be done about him?
Dear Mr Tyrant,

It seems Mr Banks is two faced (and possibly of two minds) for he is nothing short of sweet to me on this thread. As you know, I don't sail on the shallow seas we find on other threads and so I must trust your word in this. All I can suggest is either (1) allow him his extravagances and smile quietly, holding in your heart the knowledge that he is a small-minded artless fool or (2) remind him it is poor form to deride Tall Poppies, Artistic Geniuses and Handsome Fellows (Me, that is). Indeed, it is the meanest sort of jealousy in my opinion!

Wise Odo

NB I will be away for a day or two on family business (in fact, attending my dear mother's 80th Birthday Surprise Party many miles away). Kindly keep an eye out for me will you while I'm gone. (If Mr Banks disappears too, then I will know I am being followed! :? )
Happy birthday to your mum! :mrgreen: I hope you (and Mr. Banks if he tags along) have an excellent time. 8-)
Happy Birthday Odo's (and Odo's :lol: ) Mum :mrgreen: .
