Playtah's Brick (and RFB's Too)

This one has a back story. Please read this post, and its comments.

Go ahead, I'll wait.

O.K., on with the tale.

Later on, they wrote a second note home, saying they'd come up a little short, and asking that families that could, dig a little deeper and buy another $35.00 brick.

We did. For the second brick we used one of Playtah's suggestions. I've said it before, but it bears repeating: I think Playtah is one of the funniest mammals in the blogosphere.

And now, without further ado, here are the pics. Here's Playtah's:

Here's RFB's:

And here's the whole marquee and Monkeyboy next to it, just because:

That is so cool. I love your bricks and I also love your pic.

Mine would be "Where's that cask of Amontillado you promised me?"

Churl: Thanks. They do the trick. Jokes like those are what make me tick. Uh-oh, the rhymes are getting just a bit thick. Don't wanna make other readers sick. I never seem to know when to stop once I start doing shtick.

dmarks: Excellent. See also, the last comment on the original January post.

DiDC: I left the original Amontillado post too, when I was posting around here but did not yet have a blogger ID set up/figured out.

David in DC said...

Dmarks: Aha. I'd actually had a literate friend pegged for that comment. In a way, I was right. I just guessed the wrong literate friend. :)

I wish I had something clever to add, but everything I think of sounds vaguely pornographic...sad :-)

dmarks said...

"Leftover bread loaf from school lunch."

David in DC said...

Laura: Nothing wrong with that here. :)

But I suspect anything in that vein would be as hard to get an elementary school to actually use as "Hey, Teacher, leave those kids alone" or "We don't need no education"

Dmarks: From what Monkeyboy tells me, that's not too far from the truth
