Only numbers 9, 22, and 26 (I would say number 63, too, but I’m assuming that your idea of a “banana clip” and mine are considerably different.  At least, I hope they are.).  I must have skipped straight from the 70’s to the 90’s.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

You’re old?! I don’t even know what 60 of the questions are talking about? (Pound Puppies? Doogie Howser? WTF?)

This has totally ruined my day… And given me a strange compulsion to buy zip-up bootie slippers?!
