Just how far are people willing to stretch things here?

I do stretch things. But here I am "joining" or connecting.Moby-Dick has a hyphen which can be used to "join" words.

The bidding war for the badge has proven quite surprising. Unlike Captain Ahab, I'm bringing down the top sail before it rips --at the last two seconds someone saved me! For the same money, I could be on and fast to a decent Speyside(though Melville would have preferred brandy). Bottoms up to the winner! (and the Pequod!)I probably would have stuck myself with it, anyway.

I just came across a man by the name of "Melville Stine" from Sacramento. I thought of this thread.

I didn't want to create a new thread for this since it is probably a stupid question, so I'm just putting it here.What was the original purpose of this card? A get well card? Sort of like you've been "draggin your ass"? I noticed a dot in the middle of the second "r" in "sorry". Could that have been added by Zodiac? Not sure why. Just wondering if it was on the original like that.

Found a link for a "Melville Eats Blubber" Pin... ithe site listed it as being sold in "underground stores", I find that interesting in relation to Gyke... in fact the pins Z mentions in the Dragon card all seem to be subjects that are near and dear to Gyke- Peace Symbol/ Black Power/ and the jab at Melvin using this pin as a template.bit of zynchronicity Herman- Lake Hermanhttp://www.hakes.com/item.asp?ItemNo=68820&Lis ... _small.jpg[/img]

Sign Sign,I am not a 'native speaker' .. However,this is a theory what the button may allude to:'wingwalker- 03-13-2007"melville eats blubber"Zodiac's mention of the "melvin eats blubber" pin is a reference to an actual pin that said "melville eats blubber". Melville was the author of Moby Dick. He switched the Melville to Melvin as a nod to Melvin Belli.'Blubber:http://chrisabraham.com/2008/04/06/cook ... le/Hermann Melvin:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herman_Melville-Nin
