I once knew a bat who was covered in mold
He wasn't that young but he wasn't that old
He wasn't that weak but he wasn't that strong
He'd hang upside down and sleep all day long

Tim: very good - you're talented.
i've been known to be a pretty good poet myself. let's see...

there once was a bat who hung in an attic
his alarm was not set, it went off automatic
he went to the "bat"room looked in the mirror and posed
then noticed this white stuff stuck to his nose.
He thought to himself i'm going insane and never again will i do that COCAINE!
and that's off the cuff.

Totally bats

Two bats are going for their midnight feed.
After an hour or so, one bat gets tired of looking and goes home with no blood.

The other bat comes home with blood dripping from it's mouth. The first bat says enviously, "Where did you get all that blood from?"

The second bat replies, "Follow me. I`ll show you."

After awhile the second bat leads them to a cave. He says, "You see that wall over there?"

The hungry bat excitedly says, "Yes!"

Other bat says, "I didn't."

Ok sorry to take this to a serious level, but with the noticable decrease in mosquito population this year, it makes me wonder if there is a correaltion between the white face fungus issue and the missing mosquitos?
