The what, now?

For those of you who've been wondering just what the hell Nolan was reciting at our holiday show, here's the full transcript:
  • One hen;
  • Two ducks;
  • Three squawking geese;
  • Four corpulent porpoises;
  • Five limerick oysters;
  • Six pair of Don Alversos tweezers;
  • Seven thousand Macedonians in full battle array;
  • Eight brass monkeys from the ancient sacred crypts of Egypt;
  • Nine sympathetic, apathetic, diabetic, old men on roller skates with a marked propensity towards procrastination and sloth;
  • Ten lyrical, spherical, diabolical denizens of the deep who hall stall around the corner of the quo of the quay of the quivery, all at the same time.
We cannot, however, claim credit for this brilliant bit of balderdash. It's based on an "announcer's test" that Jerry Lewis introduced on The Tonight Show back in the 1960s. Read all about it at Google Answers!
