Yes folks, gifted cellist, poet,Chelsea Flower Show gold medallist, and Olympic 200 metre hurdling champion, NanU (34) is setting this weeks poetry bus challenge and it's a little belter involving using those weird and wonderful blobber word verifications that amaze and amuse in almost equal measure.Why didn't we think of it before? Science girl has beaten us to it, I think she may be a genius, in fact I'm sure of it.Make haste to her whereabouts and enter into this weeks poetic festivities.

This week there will be a special 'First Prize'awarded anonymously in secret via a telepathic mallard called Kevin who will choose the winner and think about it.So don't miss out on this golden opportunity to impress and amaze your friends with the totally non existent 'Telepathic Poetry Duck Prize',which in the Blue Riband Poetry Bonanza is second only in kudos to 'The Farting Cow Award For Poetic Endeavour On A Pogo Stick '

Remember friends ask not what the poetry bus can do for you, but how much is a 99 with sprinkles.

Here is the place to be, le challenge poetique de fille de science NanU, right....... HERE

I really must have a go this week - what an honour to win the Telepathic Poetry Duck Prize - or even the Tele-pathetic Poetry Duck Prize.

Like the idea of a telepathic prize! In fact the whole idea of telepathy I like - so at precisely ten o'clock this morning I shall think soothing thoughts and send them over the Irish Sea to you. Be ready to receive!
Now shall go and read Nanu.

I can only say I must be psychic! remember I asked if you needed any more drivers because I'd just thought of a brilliant idea?.. well that was the idea I had!.. completely cool :-D
can't wait till monday now!

I only came to get the verification word.

Titus said...

Ooh, worth it!

Argent said...

Titus, you're so right. Worth it to come here. I may make several comments just to get new words :-)

NanU said...

nya nya i got it first, 'Cats! Though Dave King tells me it's been done before, elsewhere. sigh. Great minds think alike? or are we lacking in originality? perhaps the telepathic duck has been up to no good.

The Farting Cow on a Pogo Stick? (I'm choking here!)
You really ARE mad!

Will endeavour to participate, but it's a long weekend over here (we made up a holiday because we don't have enough of them, like you guys).

Planning to go to "the races" and win a bundle. Wish me luck, because part of the proceeds will go towards "The Poetry Bus".

P.S. - Put me down for some time in October or later, would you (to drive, I mean). I still haven't done the one I really wanted to do, and I promise, no Jesus statues this time!

Sorry to have missed the mallard. We're on holiday time here...i.e. my brain is worn by the constant questioning of the 10 year old!
