or subtitled: COWARDLY ACTS
DESIDERATA likes to think he's promoting the Bard's language through humour and wordplay. Or in PCK, the best in JB - and wherelse but yan's and joe-psc's sin-land? - word pray-play.
When writ "In da steal of da nite", I believe my constant ER (which stands for EsteemedReaders to Desi's Place, of' course!) would know it stands for "In the still of the night..."
Rite? stands for Right?...
The "rite" refers to a ceremony -- wordplay in this case -- as to the rhetorical question.
Rhetorical question means "an answer is NOT expected", butt if thee wishes to riposte, Desi can't stop you, can he?Which (the italised portion), when re-written, translates:
but if you wish to respond with tongue-in-chic, I can't stop thee, as Desi's motto here is democratic discourse ... yes/no?
Yes/no is precisley a demo of what "demo" is about: CHOICE, as in a tossing of the coin: puick one from two.
By now, I think I've bored thee and I shal CEASE and DESIST.
Cease and desist is a semi-loyar-buluk term Desi used in COMMENTS as a parting shot to some visitors who came yes, YESTERDAY, "In the steal of the night ..."
But before I come back to these cowards, let me dispense with today's posting predicated on normal musing until I checked "Comments" to yesterday's post, which resulted in derailing Desi's thought s as outl;ined in the foregoing marathionic introduction. There's a REASON -- better word, RATionale, for the diversion. Or was it digression, a Blogger's occupational luxury ...

Moral crusaders turn molesters
KUALA LUMPUR: A group of moral crusaders had the tables turned on them when they were arrested by the police for allegedly molesting a woman they had caught for khalwat.
A 21-year-old banquet supervisor and his 17-year-old sales assistant girlfriend, who were at her brother's home in Kg Sungai Penchala, had a shock when the men kicked open the door and stormed into the house.
Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Dzuraidi Ibrahim said the men, aged between 24 and 44, beat up the boyfriend when he tried to explain that they had not been doing anything wrong, causing him to suffer injuries to his face, eyes and body.
“They then broke into the bathroom where the girl was taking a shower and allegedly groped and fondled her.
“One of the men also slapped her,” said ACP Mohd Dzuraidi.
The men then dragged the couple to the Brickfields police district headquarters to lodge a police report against them for khalwat.
However, they received a nasty surprise when police arrested them instead after the girl lodged a report against them.
Now you know why our most Esteemed Prime Minister Pak Lah in his gr8 wisdom stopped the Mat Skodeng squad in great histyoric Malacca... But I don't undersatnd the Chief Minister who foolly supported the Snooppers and even officially launched the troops is teal on his job as CEO. You're asking for his nama?
Hey, Paint puicture, don't ask the artist to paint the intestines as well! This saying comes from the gr8 wisdom of mGf Mr Coww, and he's steal leading the flock of cows back from the pasture.
Teh susu lembu from Haridas, anyone?
DESIDERATA ON A COWARDLY ACT:
Back to my reference to the "marathonic" Intro to today's post, here's Da Rationale:
"The first three conversationists -- Dangerous Variable,timed 3.14PM, Joe.psc 6.50PM, and Howsy 7.05PM -- are regulars here that I can distinguish even their smells and spells.
The above trio comes under NOBLE ACT1.
The COWARDLY ACT2 comes from a group I referred in my response-comment there as G10:
"What followed next was a deluge of 10 long, "marathonic in deed!" comments, with obvious cooked up monikers that reek of cowardice.
The roll call of dishonour, with bugle sounding out of key:
*reek timed at 2.12AM
*konek at 2.13AM
*ning pan bee at 2.14AM
*vesewe at 2.16AM
*hong yang at 2.17AM
+yoy at 2.20AM
+kelly at 2.20AM
+samp at 2.22AM
+shinwee at 2.25AM
+romsam at 2.28AM
Just my closing comment to the Group of 10 is reproduced here:
NOTE TO ALL ESTEEMED READERS:
After the preceding "initial response" to G10, I then a pplied my Sherlock mind, and looked at the TIMELINE, starting with Reek at 2.12am and followed in QUICK SUCCESSION .... ending with romsam at 2.28am with marathon entries in 16 minutes!
So Dr Watson says: all entries by the "foolhardy commenter/s acting in concert" posing as 10 persons ABUSING Desi's Blog.
I'm removing the comments 30 minutes from now, BUT advise the Commenter/s:
CEASE and DESIST!
10:26 AM ~~~~~~~~~~
PS: Desi is now seriously considering, after several thinking overs, that I should implement the Letters Identity Check before allowing comments.
Ah, a Blogger's Laments ...
that come along with the Luxuries. I enjoy digressing, remember?
