This nonsense is in response to the silly word-image found on Widdershins Worlds of two monitors turning up their toes, which in not so funny terms was one more thing Going Sideways on their adventures. At the end of the post, the well-wish: “May your hailstones be tiny, and your monitors never discover they have toes to turn up,” sparked me to write this…
The Tale of Be-toed Monitors, a tale of woe to be told in monotone (monotonous, its known)
For when monitors are bestowed with toes everyone knows, like kissing toads, (not monitor lizards, quite different gizzards) that they turn up missing, causing monetary hissing, and rows to hoe.
“Turn up or turnip? Are we turning up turnips with a hoe?”
“No, you know… ‘Turn up, Ho!’ Like a party.”
Oh no! It goes…
When a monitor knows it’s bestowed with toes it momentarily glows and, monstrously gauche, behold it goes and turns up its toes.
“So not a turnip. A tune up?”
“Some party. Somebody turned up dead? Who was hoeing?”
Wait and see where it’s going…
Owners groan in monotone the great unknown of digital theft, monetarily bereft. Not a moment’s rest, they do their best to toe the line, undefined, totally unmonitored.
