Excepting those he may have written himself, the enclosed items do not in any way represent the Editor's opinions. In fact, let's be real safe, and say that as far as this newsletter is concerned, he has no opinions at all. Okay? Good. =============================================================================== ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ************************** EDITORIALS AND LETTERS *************************** ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- THAT'S better. I received a few submissions this week, finally, and we have a good issue (in my humble opinion as editor). Still waiting on Sabre's contribution (hint-hint, Sabre!) but since his is extremely m00sey and dangerous to the world's sanity, it's going to be worth the wait. However, we must not slack off. Keep the contributions coming, so the weirdness may continue. Remember, the fall semester is approaching fast, and I am expecting and hoping that the number of BITNET chapters will explode into hugeness. We want to welcome them with quality confusion. Only two new chapters this time, they're listed below. Welcome to the conspiracy! And so, on with the issue.... -Pickle. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ******************************* EVENTS AND NEWS ******************************* ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nothing really, here, but Half-Elf has requested that I make a note in this issue in reference to Camp Relay II. She claims (I take no sides, I'm the impartial editor) that it was proven that half-elves are faster than kamikazes, since the was able to tag him from behind during the football game. I, for one, can assure all m00ses that half-elves are much harder than they look, and one should be careful when running into them, if one wants to move during the following three days without one's muscles screaming. -Pickle. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ***************************** FICTION AND POETRY ****************************** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I was preparing this issue when I got an urgent note from Wolverine, saying (in effect): "Hold the presses!" (I've always wanted to say that.) I did, and it was well worth it....... &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& Author's Note: The following story doesn't really have anything to do with & The M00se Illuminati.

Unknown to them, strange toxic chemicals have been recently dumped in the area. When they dive in, the chemicals interact with their genetic DNA, forming a chain reaction through their systems. They become......... THE LARGE MANLY MEN IN WET CLOTHING === ===== ===== === == === ======== It was a peacful day at Fall Creek. The sky was crystal blue, the trees a lush green, the water clear as glass. Suddenly, the stillness was broken by a booming voice. "KOW - A - BUUNNGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" the voice boomed as a truly large manly body leapt into the air, curled into a ball of taut muscle and sinew, and landed in the water with a thunderous crash. Water spewed forty feet in the air. Sabre swam sputtering back to the surface, huge, bulking muscles propelling him through the water at amazing speed. Wolverine treaded water easily and applauded. "A truly manly cannonball, Sabre!" "A truly manly compliment, oh Wolverine," Sabre said, bowing his head. "What a fine manly day it is!" "Makes one glad to be a manly man," said Guardian Angel. "A Large Manly Man in Wet Clothing," corrected Alacrity. "Ah, yes. How stupid of me to foget!" said Guardian Angel. "Anyway, 'twas a fine cannonball indeed Sabre!" G.A. said. "Magnificent! Stupendous! Hhmm, what does our moll Dusk think of it?" Alacrity asked. Off to the side, sitting on a rock shelf was Dusk, trying her best to look inconspicuous. 'I don't know these people...I never heard of these people...I have no idea WHO they are,' she thought. Sighing, she thought, 'Why did I get stuck with them? I don't want to be their "moll"! Ever since those toxic chemicals had been dumped in here that day, they've been acting like this. This manly man stuff is driving me batty!' "Well Dusk, what did you think?" Wolverine asked. "It was, uh, very manly Sabre," she said. "Why thank you Dusk! What a womanly thing for you to say!" Just then, their attention was distracted by a small slide of loose rocks. As the Large Manly Men in Wet Clothing looked up, they saw three women in lavishly-done hairstyles, lead by a thin, scuzzy looking man. The women were being careful to stay out of the spray of the falls, so as not to wet their hair. Wolverine gasped. "Good Lord! The Nefarious Hair Girls!" "And their leader, The Scum Puppy!" Alacrity answered. "They must have been sent by the Brotherhood of Evil Relayers." Sabre said. "Shall we attack?" asked G.A. "Maybe they're here to just swim," offered Dusk. "Hah! Not the Nefarious Hair Girls!" said Wolverine. "They would NEVER risk getting their hair wet! They must be planning something." Just then, The Scum Puppy yelled out, "We know you are here, Large Manly Men in Wet Clothing! Come out and face us!" "They have affronted our manly pride and egos." said Sabre. "Manly men, ATTACK!" The large manly men leaped forward, hurling massive rocks and tree trunks at the Hair Girls. As the storm of rocks and trees flew towards them, one of the Hair Girls, Muffy, pulled out a large can of Super Strength Hair Spray and sprayed it toward the incoming weaponry. The spray immediately caught the flying debris, and it dropped into the water in a sticky mass. "GOOD LORD!" exclaimed G.A. "Quickly," boomed Wolverine, "assume crouch positions!" The four manly men crouched down in the water, preparing to spring forward and pummel their adversaries. As they did, the other two Hair Girls, Babs and Jennie-Jen, pulled out the world's largest hair dryer, turned the air-speed to high, aimed it at the Large Manly Men, and turned the switch to on. Instantly, a large gust of wind swept the Large Manly Men out of the water and pinned them against the opposite cliff wall. "Oh No!" yelled Sabre, trying to make his voice heard above the wind. "Our...our clothes are drying! We'll weaken if our clothes dry!" "What shall we do!" yelled G.A. "We'll be helpless at the hands of the Hair Girls! They may give us fashionable hair cuts!" "NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" screamed Wolverine in agony at the thought of having a yuppie hairstyle. Suddenly, Dusk had a thought. "Guys! Form a wall! Maybe that will bounce the air back towards them!" "That's it!" cried Wolverine. "Quickly! While we still have some of our manly strength. Crowd together and we will form a wall with our broad, muscular, manly chests! That should deflect this evil wind!" Fighting with an effort beyond that of ordinary men, the Large Manly Men crowded together, forming a wall with their massive pectoral muscles. The wind from the hair dryer from Hell bounced off them, whipping back toward the Hair Girls. As it struck, it ruined their hairstyles, knocking their hair down into hanging, tattered messes. The immediately dropped the hair dryer and whined in great agony! "Oh no!" cried Babs. "My hair's absolutely horrid! *SOB*" "Now I'll have to get it done again, and that's the third time this MORNING!" whined Muffy. "Guys!" yelled Dusk. "The Scum Puppy is getting away!" "Everyone into the water!" yelled G.A. As one, the four Large Manly Men cannonballed into the water, causing a veritable tital wave to rise from the water, grabbing The Scum Puppy and pulling him into the water. Acting quickly, the Large Manly Men tore the gold chains from the necks of the Hair Girls and shackled them and The Scum Puppy. "A job well done, oh fellow Manly Men!" exclaimed Alacrity. "Truly a Manly Act!" said G.A. "And credit to our moll, Dusk, for her part!" voiced Wolverine. "Yeah, uh, thanks guys...can we get out of here now?" asked Dusk. ================================================================================ Author's Note: The author refuses to take responsibility for this story, as he claims to have been controlled by Demons during the writing of said story.

A number of these are listed below; the spelling is exactly as it appeared on the notes: Dear School: Pleaes eckuse John for been absent January 28, 29, 30, 32, and 33. Chris has a acre on his side. Mary could not come to school because she was bothered by very close veins. John has been absent because he had two teeth taken out of his face. I kepe Billie home because she had to go Christmas shopping because I didn't know what size she wear. Please excuse Gloria. She has been sick and under the doctor. My son is under the doctor's care and should not take P.E. Pleae execute him. Lillie was absent from school yesterday and she had a going over. Please excuse Joey Friday. He had loose vowels. Please excuse Blanch from Jim today. She is adminstrating. My daughter was absent yesterday because she was tired. She spent the weekend with the marines. Please excuse Jimmy for being. It was his father's fault. Please excuse Dianna from being absent yesterday. She was in bed with gramps. Mary Ann was absent December 11-15 because she had a fever, sore throat, headache, and upset stomach. Her sister was also sick, fever, sore throat, her brother had a low grade fever and acked all over. I wasn't the best either, sore throat and fever. There must be something going around - her father even got hot last night. Bl00p! Rich =============== I have one to add that I am not making up. When my mother was in grade school in Gouverneur, a backwater town in upstate NY, there was a young boy a couple years younger than her who everybody called 'Stinky'. That was his normal nickname, not an insult. Anyway, one day he had to stay home from school, as he had a nasty case of diarrhea (sp?). The next day his mother sent him to school with a note that said: "Stinky wasn't in school yesterday because he had the shits." -Pickle. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Recently someone came up with the idea of using "m00se" as a verb, meaning to join the M00se Illuminati. I have done a bit of thought and come up with some other words that every m00se should know. m00se (v) - 1. to join the M00se Illuminati, 2. to act in a bizzarre manner, (n) - a member of the M00se Illuminati m00sey (adj) - bizarre, and attention-getting thr0ng (n) - a group of m00ses (v) - the act of grouping thr0ng-a-thon (n) - a gathering of more than one thr0ng and involving at least three m00ses. A gathering of two m00ses is commonly known as a date. I hope that's cleared up some points of confusion and created some new ones. Bl00p!! Joe Claffey ============== Note: A m00se dictionary might be useful. If anybody comes up with more m00se terms, send them here and I'll add them in. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *************** AND, OF COURSE, THE UBIQUITOUS M00SE LIST UPDATE ************** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Add to the list: Connecticut State U thr0ng CRAMER @ CTSTATEU Scopus UConn chapter WALLFESH @ UCONNVM Sande
