The offer never ceases to be Poem by Cretan Maineiac

The offer never ceases to be

Rating: 4.3

The offer never ceases to be
tho i strike it down relentlessly

free dinner for two
for shooting ducks in a row
but i just wish to comment
courting favor, you know?

If i do slay the twenty
(which some call a score)
will the popups unplenty
'ere my pointer grows sore?

Now this is comical and so true, but, there is a way around it...don't use Internet Explorer....Try using your internet provider carrier, for some reason they stop the dang ducks and the paper doll in the bikini....allowing only rarley the little cursor slide across the page thing through...No joke, there' s away around it...Try different browsers and up your security and spam and firewall and those ducks will go back where they belong, in the water and not here., , , marci. :)

I just ignore them why should I encourage them in their brainless play

Very nicely done-I enjoyed it. Sounds as though you've had about the same luck with the ducks that I've had with PH's 'Contact Us.' There are a bunch of cyber-bullies out there who get their kicks out of creating annoying pop-ups the average person can't get rid of. Bullies often prove to be rather cowardly inside, and I think these pop-up artists enjoy lurking in the safety of uncharted cyberspace where no one can grab them by the scruff of the neck as they deserve.

So cute, loved it. The little ducks are a constant to fill my background. Loved the poem and the tips from Marci. Thanks!
