Somali wild ass born at Zoo

Yes, that is an actual headline from stltoday.com today.

"The St. Louis Zoo welcomed its first newborn Somali wild ass."

Whoohoo! I'm looking forward to a wild ass birthday party!

There MUST be some way to combine this headline with your linguistic games posted below. Let's see: "Wild ass whiled ass-wild hours..." No. "Wild ass ass-wild ass ass ass." There.

Outstanding commentary, Kate! Or should I say "wild analysis...?" Oh, that's horrible.

Let me try... Somali wild ass wilded some wild-ass Somali Ali ass... eh, I think you already mastered it.

BUTT seriously (sorry), WTF with the Buffalo buffalo buffalo? I thought I was wordy.

Also--I see you're reading Synge. Wherefore? (I am a fan.)

Synge is amazing. I remember the day I discovered him... I was cloistered in one of the upper floors of the U. library. I read some critical reference to Riders to the Sea. I found a copy of the play, read it, and was instantly hooked. I have been considering a blog entry about him for some time. Stay tuned.

Dude--I'll coauthor. I mean to say, I'll comment extensively. _Playboy of the Western World_ started a long Modern Irish drama love affair, with me. I'll excerpt pieces of papers. I'll make you kill yer da with a shovel. I'll make your girlfriend marry an effeminate priest.
