Marvellous Plums

First and foremost, a stunningly delightful link courtesy Bookslut – the Marvel comics swimsuit collection.
Zigzackly has a nice post about Wodehouse… Have been reading Plum almost non-stop since then. Also found this.
Hurree Babu continues to be prolific - and is probably on something from an article hes linked to, performance enhancers for writers

Son of Bengal vs Bengal Tiger

Normally Putu abhors forwards. But I thought this was particularly nice. I also couldnt help adding two lines of my own...

Through the jongole I am went
On shooting Tiger I am bent
Bugger Tiger has eaten wife
No doubt I will avenge poor darling's life

Too much quiet, snakes and leeches
But am not feared these sons of beeches
Hearing loud noise I am jump with start
But noise is coming from damn fool heart

Taking care not to be fright
I am clutching rifle with eye to sight
Should Tiger come I will fall him down
Then like hero return to native town

Then through trees I am espying one cave
I am telling self - "Bholanath be brave"
I am now proceed with too much care
From nonsense smell this Tiger's lair

My leg is shake, I start to pray
I think I shoot Tiger some other day
Turning round I am going to go
But Tiger giving bloody roar

He bounding from cave like shooting star
I commend my soul to Kali Ma
How I could think I could combat
With nephew of famous Putu the Cat?

Through the jongole I am went
Like bullet with Tiger hot on scent
I am a telling that never in life
I will risk again for damn fool wife

Guardian SF special

Um, could have been done better, but hey, its the Guardian. This is the link. Go and read the whole section, actually. Also this is a profile of Padma Lakshmi. Putu wants friends like her 30 years from now, Putu does.

Priceless Pearls of Poetry
