So let's all go dulsin' and winklin' down at the wangan, over at the shimshack and go breakin' the jam. And then we can set the dogs, find a twitching horse, go sparking, sacking with our Kennebecers, or wait for the May run as long as there are no gewgaws or swampers coming along. Or we may want to try fly beer or cockaninny with our hodge podge at the sit-down supper. What's the difference between the walking boss and the main man? Or between a Richibucto goose and a Shippegan turkey? And perhaps we can take a trip to Pull and Be Damned Narrows, Petit Large and Hole-in-the-Wall.
