Transcript THE BLUE BONNET PACE THREE TAKU TOPICS This here wave of economy has finally hit the galley - - just the other day the ship's cook told me the pudding we were eating had been made out of an old cook book. ****** Too bad we can't mention names in this column, but here's the story anyway - - at one of the local bars the other evening a bunch of the boys were gathered around, taking turns buying the drinks; when it came to this fellow's turn, he sort of grinned and said, "Well, Boys, what are we going to have? Rain or snow?" ****** See the little insect Crawling on the bunk Do not use the flit gun It only makes him drunk. o IN MEMORIAM After a tragic death caused by an attempt to sleep in a light socket, the Communication Office mascot, a tame grasshopper, was given a Navy funeral and burial at sea. He was placed in a paper-clip box marked with various inscriptions such os GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN and REST IN PEACE and then lowered into the limpid depths of the Whangpoo. Reverend Melvin presided, while Harris and "Twin Colt" Dewey Lambdin acted as pallbearers. Mason was designated as official mourner, which accounts for the sad look on his face. The deceased's last words were, "This boins me up. -o- We overheard a business genius the other night squaring up a debt of several books of dance tickets by giving the little lady in question a letter of recommendation to one of his old shipmates who is coming out on the Augusta. Not a bad idea at that. *P *p «p *P *p ^ It is rumored that MacMahon has been throwing his chest out a foot and distributing cigars - - in case you don't know it, Mrs. MacMahon has presented her husband with a baby boy who will probably use a bos'n's pipe for rattle. *Ja ^ ^ «L J. ^p *p ^* *J* wlv Operative No. 19 reports that Potts, AMM lc. has been throwing his chest out two feet and distributing two cigars on account of how he is the papa of twins. The best nomination to date for suitable names is Pete and Repeat. Bongiorni says never to hit a man when he is down on account of how you never know how big he will be when he get up. T T T T ^T *n It is rumored that Lt. Zondorak is to be assigned the Russian language course - - oh to be on Ave. Joffre in the springtime - - wonder what the Russian S is for the beautiful teeth and alluring dimples? Ho Hum. o ODE TO A JAMOKE POT Blessing on thee, pal of mine, Your perked nectar is our wine; Through thy swansneck spout doth flow, The regal fluid, of amber glow. The perfect rythm, and gentle thud, Heralds the brewing of scared mud; Then at last, your energy spent, From your mouth the blood is sent. You lie and watch the next embrace, Of lip-worn grail and sailor's face; In cold estate you mother the brood, Of stained cups and sailor's food, Your duty done, and service had, You know you're not a passing fad; When once again it falls your lot, When someone yells, "Let's make a pot." EX. ****** Sailor: "I heard he fell down a ladder the other night with two pints of liquor." Mate: "Did he spill any?" Sailor: "No, he kept his mouth closed." ****** St. Peter: "Did you, while on earth, indulge in petting, smoking or dancing?" Girl: "Never ! ! !" St. Peter: "Then you're late for muster - - - you've been dead a long time." ****** "What would you do if the Gun Captain's head were blown off." "Nothing, sir." "Why not?" "I'm the Gun Captain, Sir." ^# *l» ^1» %\j »*£ ^^ Sea. 2c. at mast: "Captain, I was held up ashore last night by two men. Captain: "Where?" # Sea. 2c: "All the way back to the ship, sir." ****** Up, up, up soared the daring aviator in his swift sport plane. He dipped, rolled, glided, banked, side-slipped and looped-the loop. "Golly," gasped a spectator, "He can do absolutely everything in the air that a bird can." "In that case," advised his friend, "you'd better put on your hat." J}oof Toppina // sqz: You can't drive a nail with a sponge no matter how much you soak it. ON YOUR FEET Beware the deadly sitting habit, Or if you sit, be like the rabbit, Who keepeth ever on the jump With spring concealed beneath his rump. A little ginger 'neath the tail Will oft for lack of brain avail; Eschew the dull and slothing seat And move about with willing feet. Man was not made to sit a'trance, And press, and press, and press his pants; But rather, with open mind, To circulate among his kind. And so my son, avoid the snare, Which lurks within a cushioned chair; To run like hell, it has been found, Both feet must be upon the ground. Catapult. o BEANS .. Beans, beans," I heard him cry; "Gim'me beans before I die. Beans for the captain, beans for the crew, Beans for breakfast and dinner too. Beans for supper and between each meal, Beans in the bilges and beans on the keel. Beans in your locker and beans in your bed, Beans in the crow's nest and beans overhead. Beans in the whaleboat, beans in the barge, Beans in the brig and beans at large. Take your spinach and turnip greens, But I can't live without my beans." o Holier-than-thou: "There are twenty- two cabarets in this town, and T'm proud to say that I've never been in < ne of them." Not-so-good: "Which one is that?"
