Peerless Peer


Queen Elizabeth II has passed away ending the longest reign in British history. And so the crown passes to the Prince of Wales, Charles. But he won’t be King. In fact, he won’t be he. That’s because in our oh-so-Progressive times binary titles and pronouns are out, out, out. The New nomenclature is strictly gender non-specific, not masculine or feminine or anything in between, in other words neuter. That’s right, modern Progressive people have all been neutered.

So, Queen and King, forget that. The old lady and the old ways are dead and gone. Next on the throne, the gender neutral Queen-King: Quing Charles. Gone as well are him and her and he and she. The pronoun it replaces them all. Hence, Charles will be referred to as Its Majesty, the Quing. Royal Navy vessels will drop the designation HMS (His Majesty’s Ship) in favor of IMS (Its Majesty’s Ship).

There won’t be princes or princesses anymore either. William will no longer be Prince William, he'll be, sorry, it’ll be Pring William, or Its Royal Highness the Pring of Wales. Pring William won’t have sons or daughters, they’ll be pringlets until they come of age. Or make up your own title, name, pronoun, whatever, since nowadays anything goes. Except the traditional, which has gone.

All the same, one thing won’t change — We can all, peer and peasant alike, still say, “We are not amused.”

Ah-h-h-h, Summer


Summer is here. And there. And all around the town, as the song goes. And now, though you didn’t ask for it, a brief history of summer. The word summer comes from the last of the Germanic Goddesses, Elke Summer, who died in 1840. (Her son, Otto of Ulm, was the father of the car, the Ottomobile.) Elke translates to hot and Summer translates to something like Gol-darnit, so Elke Summer is hot damn! Prior to 1840 there was no summer and spring ran right into fall, much to the consternation of early Americans as it shortened baseball season dramatically.

After summer was invented the Earth slowly warmed and, instead of enjoying the warm glow of it all like sensible people, psuedo-scientists and there followers got all in a dither about it and concocted all manner of cockeyed schemes to make it all go away. King Canute could have told them it was a fool’s errand to try to stop the tides, but some folks never learn from history. Probably because they’re ignorant of history.

No then, the Sumers of ancient Sumeria… forget it, it’s summer. Relax. You’ll feel better.

A Four Day Late New His Story of June


June is named for Juno, the Roman Goddess of teachers and graduation ceremonies celebrated by letting the monkeys out. Juno is usually depicted wearing a white belt, white shoes, a long toga, or gown, with a tasseled flat square on her head. The latter represents a mortarboard, or hod, for her being a Mason, or cementhead in the vernacular. The tassel dangling from the mortarboard stands for remembering or something, I don’t rightly recall. Anyway, the association with this square topper with knowing is where the expression, “Off the top of my head” comes from.

June is also the month when summer starts. The word summer, related to simmer, means, “God, it’s hot.” Though in Roman times it was, “Goddess, it’s hot.” Juno herelf was not hot, but rather more like a neat and tidy old maid schoolmarm from the Greek island of Lesbos, where grooming in schools was practically a cult.

New Bird Rebus Sightings for Spring 2022

Another five more birds seen around the house, around the yard actually, to add to the Bird Spotter’s Rebus Guide collection bringing same to a grand total of fifty, count ’em 50. Of couse fifty is 950 short of a grand, so not much of a grand total. All the same it shows you can successfully go bird watching without leaving the premises, if that’s your bent. And if you spend all day looking at birds, you’re pretty bent. All seriousness aside, here’s those five, count ’em 5, bird rebuses as promised:
