I'm sure my dogs can post well. They just don't tolerate fools & baggage, being hounds, as they are.

Clearly not, they don't tolerate fools and baggage.

We has no Pierre(s) in the Fakitoukie Swamp. It's Zen JTR my hounds would have a problem with. Koan...no nothing, baggage just as transcendent.

A koan (Japanese pronunciation) comes from the Chinese word gongan meaning "a pubic case."
(Merriam Webster)

Yes, now I see how a koan is relevant to the Whitechapel murders.

Pierre and the Casebook went to see
If they could solve the crimes.
They wrote some books and made some money
In five pound notes and dimes.
Pierre looked up to the stars above
And sang to a small cadet:
"I know who dunnit, I know who dunnit,
I just can't tell you yet!"

to the music of "rippers gonna get you" from jack the ripper the musical:

There you are a minding your own business when out from behind you comes the big old troll.
facts none, job done, silly lill' song sung.
fakers gonna get you if you don' watch out.

Good stuff, Curious and Elemarna!

(with apologies to Peter, Paul, and Mary): "PIERRE THE MAGIC POSTER"

Pierre the magic poster
lived in Cyber-space,
and frolicked in Victorian fog,
on a site called Casebook.

Many posters loved that rascal Pierre,
they brought him clues and clippings,
plans and other fancy things.
Together they would sail from thread to thread,
and when debunkers called,
Pierre roared out his mighty song-- "I know the Name, I do,
but I cannot tell it yet!"

Then one gray day it happened,
the posters came no more,
Pierre, that mighty Poster,
ceased his metaphorical roar.
His head was high, for he said,
"I cannot be provoked!"

Love it :-)! And all the others. And thanks - this is becoming addictive!
