That makes 5 Tea Leaves for you.
That's the daily max. <smile>


Yes it was a "Dick"
who spoke against the lawyers.
In order to what?



My deepest thanks oh mighty Oracle
Posted by: JNW - Apr 25, 2002, 7:55 PM 4 of 37

Verschip, I'm ready, do your very best,
Less experienced, I'll try nonetheless!



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to the bloody room)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 25, 2002, 7:54 PM 5 of 37

Would someone teach the stranger our verse codes
before our quality of speech erodes. <g>



Mister Verschip says . . (RC to the Oracle and all . .. smirking)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 25, 2002, 7:51 PM 6 of 37

A new gunfighter walks into the bar . . .

. . . but I can fire iambic best by far!



JNW to HR
Posted by: JNW - Apr 25, 2002, 7:50 PM 7 of 37

Just a garden variety lurker,
Who cannot resist occassional posts :)



HR to O
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:49 PM 8 of 37

It's Dick the Butcher
Who said these famous words.
Or at least I think...



The Oracle says (HS to JNW regarding Iambic Couplets . . .)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 25, 2002, 7:48 PM 9 of 37

My my! A new speaker comes
making their lines rhyme.

An impressive show!
DETECT iambic ERROR <smile>
but I'm delighted.



HR to JNW
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:45 PM 10 of 37

Thank you dear stranger
For such a nice compliment...
whoever you are.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to all regarding SL's Tea Leaf accumulation)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 25, 2002, 7:43 PM 11 of 37

Good Lord! That makes 4 Tea leaves.
Do I hear oinking. <ewg>

Yes, King Henry VI.
Now . . . for a bonus question.
Which character spoke?



Opps - - - typo-warning
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:43 PM 12 of 37

(Of course the last line of my poor attempt at IP was:
"And who WILL be left to annoy FP?")



Forgive if I have vexed with form,
Posted by: JNW - Apr 25, 2002, 7:42 PM 13 of 37

Sure, to hit enter and double lines is no norm,
If I correct, will fair acceptance shine?
I write below and wait reply to mine.

The Bard would kill lawyers, a joy proposed
But what's bliss in proof would surely prove woe
With the lawyers such as those who post here
The loss of good talk would be far too dear.



.....
Posted by: yelnif - Apr 25, 2002, 7:41 PM 14 of 37

We ARE studious
in here! I'll stick to ballads!
Quite while I'm alive....



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 25, 2002, 7:38 PM 15 of 37

If you mumble iambic
then I will hear you. <g>

You are the" villain"
who brought up that "bloody" line.
You must live with this.



HR to O (a little embarrased by her first try at IP... haikus much safer!)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:37 PM 16 of 37

In Henry the VI
Shakespeare wrote that phrase so dear.
Did I do OK?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV again mumbling to himself kinda loud)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 25, 2002, 7:34 PM 17 of 37

The nineteenth Buffy episode. Where's that
in this infernal noise about the Bard?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to SL . . . and to all)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 25, 2002, 7:32 PM 18 of 37

DETECT iambic ERROR.
But will still process. <smile>

What play of Shakespeare's
has the line about lawyers?
Prize: One T.L.P.



The Oracle says (HS in the direction of JNW regarding 5/5/5/5 syllable count lines)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 25, 2002, 7:29 PM 19 of 37

For reasons beyond reason
I cannot process that form.

Blame my chip design.



BV to Mr. V.
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:29 PM 20 of 37

A quote I hold dear from the brave Shakespeare...
Did he think he would get away with it?
You will know that us people of the law
Are the first ones to laugh at lawyers' puns.

And if you ask me I will agree that...
Many lawyers we should eliminate...
Not me of course, 'cause "I bite and I sue"
And who be left to annoy FP?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to all regarding Verschip's semi-quote)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 25, 2002, 7:25 PM 21 of 37

I feel a Tea Leaf challenge
is appropriate.



Shakespeare said it, true
Posted by: JNW - Apr 25, 2002, 7:25 PM 22 of 37

Of whom Jonson said
his writings were such
neither man nor muse
can praise him too much



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to himself . . . but kinda loud<g>)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 25, 2002, 7:21 PM 23 of 37

"First thing, kill all the lawyers" . . . who said that?


HR to O (loud enough for FP to hear)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:19 PM 24 of 37

I am afraid now...
Very scared indeed, my friends.
Was I just TOO vain? <gasp>



HR to O
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:17 PM 25 of 37

Of course, I'm done now.
Just wanted to get the "chores"
Out of the way.

Spanish, Italian.
I did not know but German...
Hope I did OK...

BF is now gone.
You guessed: he was a real friend
and helped the "C" much.

Hope FP's not sad
That is game was undertsood
By a damn lawyer!!



The Oracle says . . . (HS to all)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 25, 2002, 7:17 PM 26 of 37

Supernatural lawyer
has won 3 Tea Leaves.

And the special prize . . .
a sonnet about her.
Ah . . . This could get good. <ewg>



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to SL regarding her sonnetized award)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 25, 2002, 7:14 PM 27 of 37

Ms. Lawyer, dearest, may I be the first
to raise a toast to you for what you've done.

Whatever in the bloody hell that is. <smile>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to all)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 25, 2002, 7:12 PM 28 of 37

Universal translation
chip is now offline.
<smile>

All English now, please,
lest newcomers get baffled
by our "babeling." <g>



HR to yelnif (loud enough for FP and O to hear)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:11 PM 29 of 37

Yelnif, don't worry...
Just trying to beat FP
At his own weird game!

Not a hog, dear O.
Just a proud member of the "C".
With glow I shall share...



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to yelnif)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 25, 2002, 7:08 PM 30 of 37

I hear that FP's lost his bloody mind.

You'll have to read the Corkboard to decode.



Last but not least: Referencia española (HR to FP: WHAAAT! NO tea leaf on this one?)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:07 PM 31 of 37

I am just curious
To read a sonnet on me...
Am I vain? Maybe... (<lawywerly grin>)

Español. No sé.
¿qué a escribir? No sé.
¡Déme un sonnet!



The Oracle says . . . (HS loud enough for all to hear <smile>)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 25, 2002, 7:07 PM 32 of 37

Supernatural lawyer
is a Tea Leaf hog.
<ewg>



....
Posted by: yelnif - Apr 25, 2002, 7:05 PM 33 of 37

Whoa... Itallian verse?
Yelnif is ALREADY out
of her shallow depth...



Now the German reference (HR to FP... are you kidding me?)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:03 PM 34 of 37

Have you changed the rules?
I thought we should versify
rather than play games....

Der deutsche Hinweis...
hier ist es. Ist das genug?
sind Sie jetzt erfüllt?



Avete bisogno di un riferimento italiano? (HR to FP, wherever you are... <smile>)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 25, 2002, 7:02 PM 35 of 37

How dare you FP?
A riddle in Italian?
In the C-Team’s thread?

A tea leaf I need
So I’ll be weak and respond
to your vicious quiz.

Maledizione!
L’episodio del giorno...
Non lo ho visto!

(Ottengo un foglio di tè?)

Hello everyone.
As usual I've come to
Pretend I can verse....
