🐫CURMUDGEONS' CORNER 7. If you have a dose of the cameelious hump🐪

THE Camel's hump is an ugly lump
Which well you may see at the Zoo;
But uglier yet is the hump we get
From having too little to do.

Kiddies and grown-ups too-oo-oo,
If we haven't enough to do-oo-oo,
We get the hump—
Cameelious hump—
The hump that is black and blue!

We climb out of bed with a frouzly head,
And a snarly-yarly voice.
We shiver and scowl and we grunt and we growl
At our bath and our boots and our toys;

And there ought to be a corner for me
(And I know' there is one for you)
When we get the hump—
Cameelious hump—
The hump that is black and blue!

The cure for this ill is not to sit still,
Or frowst with a book by the fire;
But to take a large hoe and a shovel also,
And dig till you gently perspire;

And then you will find that the sun and the wind,
And the Djinn of the Garden too,
Have lifted the hump—
The horrible hump—
The hump that is black and blue!

I get it as well as you-oo-oo
If I haven't enough to do-oo-oo!
We all get hump—
Cameelious hump—
Kiddies and grown-ups too!

    That Cameelious Hump was good in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang too.

    So..what is this new fad all about? Why begin a sentence with 'So'?

    Is it me? Weinstein is to be sentenced today and his legal team have asked that his health, age and contribution to the film industry be taken into account. So not only does the film industry love giving each other awards for simply doing their job, but now the judicial system should 'reward' them as well?

    Isn't part of being found guilty an acknowledgement that he damaged the film industry by raping and assaulting people working in the industry!?!?!?!? 😡
