    Err… and that is supposed to be a representation of a…..?????

    ????British Kangaroo????

    Not downing the song as such, it’s no more offfnsive than any other ad jingle, but I’d never risk it on the insufferable music snob!

    It’s a squirrel, of course.

    Here’s the gold standard of good rap….when rap means putting the words on your lady.

    Heavenly shades of night are falling
    It’s twilight time
    Out of the mist your voice is calling
    It’s twilight time
    When purple colored curtains
    Mark the end of the day
    I hear you my dear at twilight time

    Deepening shadows gather splendor
    As day is done
    Fingers of night will soon surrender
    The setting sun
    I count the moments darling
    Till you’re here with me
    Together at last at twilight time

    Here in the after-glow of day
    We keep our rendez-vous beneath the blue
    Here in the sweet and same old way
    I fall in love again as I did then

    Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
    Like days of old
    Lighting the spark of love that fills me
    With dreams untold
    Each day I pray for evening just
    To be with you
    Together at last at twilight time

    Together at last at twilight time

    It’s been a while since school, but I think I’d remember Wordsworth rhyming ‘retina’ with ‘et cetera’.

    When do we get the album, English Romantic Poets Remixed?

    That was cute. Saw it on Olbermann. biggerbox, you are a riot!

    Off-topic: heads up for a PBS special by the venerable Bill Moyers on April 25, 2007, 9-10:30 pm. More info can be found at

    Thank you, muchly. That made me smile on a day in which I’ve had far too few of them. I don’t even care that it’s an ad.

    Bit of history: I have a very clear memory of Redd Foxx doing a really funny, increasingly Jive recitation of “Daffodils” on some variety show back in the 70s (although I can’t remember which show specifically, and a quick YouTube search couldn’t find the clip). It stuck with me enough the next day to look up the poem, which over time led to reading through most of the other Romantic poets and related literature. I’ve always wanted to thank him for that.

    Maybe this will have a similar effect on my nieces and nephews now. Maybe.

    Anyway, thanks again.

    It’s a squirrel, of course.

    Umm… OK…. yeah… right…I’m credulous, whatever you say.

    I honestly watched twice trying to figure this out. I could go with chipmunk, except for the lack of stripes, a very short-eared rabbit, or a long-eared deer, but it has way too much snout and way too much ear for a squirrel

    Just for the record, I think it’s supposed to be an English Red Squirrel, endangered by encroachment of American grey squirrels.
