May 15, 2009 - Planning, planning, planning!

In the course of our coffee break chatter,
I had asked the fish what was the matter.
ďItís the crisis unknown
So this guy I can phone.Ē
So I told him, ďGo see our Mad Hatter.Ē

May 14, 2009 - A phone system you can count on

"Youíve a problem and to you itís weighty?
Iíll be glad to resolve it now, matey!
Theyíve got password amnesia?
Iíll help to appease ya.
Be glad itís not ĎBEC80!í"

Bonus Rhyme entered:

It's a test as one plainly can see
And to pass through your troop must agree!
So don't stand there and blubber.
Go find you a shrubber.
For we are the Knights who say "Ekke Ekke Ekke Ekke Ptang Zoo Boing ...."!

May 13, 2009 - Communications breakdown

At the music and media blitz,
All complete with its glamour and glitz,
People filled the horizon
Just like that Verizon
Mob. Cell phones all went on the fritz.

So in hopes that the outage be thwarted,
There a patch was installed, Ďtwas reported.
"No, the patch isnít recent.
Itís still pretty decent,
And lucky for you, itís supported."

May 12, 2009 - Because you just can't be too careful about these things

Iím in poet. Iím writing specirfcally
About cartoons and creatures so Smurfcally.
I wonít be a bad cog.
I will proofread my glog,
Thus ensuring our corpírate securfcally.

I wanted to do something for this story that had nothing to do with JIM THE BOSS. (That would have been too obvious.) Instead, I went with using the two misspellings and made a couple of my own. Granted, it isn't easy to read, but I think it fit the story. And, by the way, I am not a fan of the Smurfs! I needed the rhyme!

May 11, 2009 - This lesson is cheap at $3.99 a minute

Fish's co-worker's put on the hook.
When he dialed that chat line, he shook.
But the councilís amused
And the gaffe was excused.
He used Eliot Spitzerís phone book.
