Ogden Nash
(1902-1971) born on
Aug 19
US poet. He was noted for off-beat poems like "Candy is Dandy, But Liquor Is Quicker."
Middle-aged life is merry, and I love to lead it.

Is dandy,

Is quicker.

Is those things arms, or is they legs?
I marvel at thee, Octopus; If I were thou, I'd call me Us.
Basketball, a game which won't be fit for people until they set the basket umbilicus-high and return the giraffes to the zoo.
I don't mind their having a lot of money, and I don't care how they employ it,
But I do think that they damn well ought to admit
