B is for Batman

It occurred to me that Batman and the ABC Wednesday BLOG have quite a few things in common. No, really.

ABC Wednesday BATTLES the midwinter (or midsummer) BLUES and BLAHS, with a BOUNTY of BEAUTIFUL, BRILLIANT, and BOAST-WORTHY BLOGPOSTS.

BATMAN worked largely alone, or with Robin, though, eventually, he sometimes BANDED together with the Justice League.
ABC Wednesday BEGAN as a solo project of Mrs. Nesbitt, but now she has BROUGHT together a BATTALION of folks to write these BUBBLY intros and visit each participant: Cheryl, Donna, Gattina, Helen, Joyce, Leslie, Natalie, Sylvia, Troy and me (Roger).

Comic BOOK fans argue what company's heroes are the BEST, BATMAN's DC, Marvel or some other group. I may be BIASED, but I think ABC Wednesday is, in the words of Tina Turner - BORN Anna Mae BULLOCK - Simply the BEST.

BTW, we BESEECH that you link to the specific post ( rather than the general blog ( That way, people can BETTER go BACK and see what BODACIOUS posts you and your BLOGGING BUDDIES have BEGAT!

Tuesday 11 January 2011


This letter of the alphabet denotes one thing -

The round has brought challenes for many here

Yonder lies the Y

Why a Y?  the yak might ask. 
Do you need to go to Yuma or the Yukon? 
Once I was a Yankee in Yugoslavia, I replied.

Do you celebrate the Yuletide with a lovely Yorkshire pudding?
Did a yeoman bring your Yule log from a lowly Yew tree cutting?
Did the new year make you yawn
Or yell, yikes! Where’s the time gone?

Did you yodel in your youth
Or yelp and yowl much when attempting yoga?
Did you ever yearn to be a yuppie?                             
Or a Yevgeni Yevtushenko?

Yield! cried the yak.
Cease and desist the yakety yak!
Like Yeats, I could not do without it.

I certainly couldn't yabber in New Zealand,
Nor yearn for Yiddish in New York,
nor yammer on about the yahoos and the yokels anywhere.
So I vote yea! Without a Y, I could not dare to be a yak!
