Having some fun, Lewis Carroll-style!

The time has come, good Chipper said,
To talk of many things:

Of farewell tours, and hunting-trips;
Of futures of the teams;

And why this background's maelstrom-like,

And whether Klesko [ate] too many wings.

"But wait a bit!!!" Bo Jackson cried,
"Before we have our chat;

For some of us are out of breath,
And all of us are fat!"

"No hurry!" said then Larry Wayne.
They thanked him much for that.

"A loaf of bread," Dale Murphy said,
"Is what we chiefly need:

Though it's no better than a Diamond
Skills entry card, indeed--

Now if you're ready, Chili dear,
We can begin to feed."

Hey, you didn't really expect anything to do with Carroll to make any sense, did you? Oh well. I had fun with it regardless.

These cards were from reader Scott in a recent trade. Scott doesn't have a blog, but is a Marlins fan, and so finding some cards to send his way was not *too* difficult. Thanks a million Scott!
