That's right, ladies and gentlemen, it's time for another episode of Marcus Tenacious Noggin's R and R, MT Noggin's Rantings and Ravings.  We probably ought to start this episode with apologies and retractions, we got a few letters here.

"We expect an apology or monetary damages to the estate of Whitney Houston will be assessed."

Now you may not realize, but last week I sang a Whitney Houston song and apparently it is affecting the value of her estate, so let's make this a public apology.  I publicly apologize for singing Whitney Houston's songs in a manner which may damage the estate of Whitney Houston and promise not to do it agin.

You notice these people on the motorcycle and the scooter and the skateboard, they seem to be lost.  They're going around a circle.  The same direction.  Here they come again.  Well, that's enough of that nonsense.

Also here, we have a letter from Fidel Castro's brother, Raul.

"Cease and desist broadcasting your likeness in the interest of world peace.  Signed, Raul Castro.  P.S. You can keep broadcasting the voice."

Now I didn't understand this until I actually put on my sunglasses, and you may understand that since Raul got rid of his, I mean deposed his, I mean took the place of his brother Fidel, he may not want people thinking he's still out active and able to express himself in a coherent manner like MT Noggin.  So I guess that's not the worst thing in the world.  Nobody needs to see this face, and be glad I'm wearing my Alaska hat, although this program is not officially endorsed by Alaska, and even though I am wearing a Hawaiian shirt, this program is not endorsed by Hawaii.

Last letter here is from Angry1.

"Please do not refer to your Sunday Go To Meetin' suit as a monkey suit.  It is degrading to monkeys, chimpanzees, apes and oragutans, as well as marmocets."

What's a marmocet?  Ain't it those people from Utah?  Anyway, I will stop referring to my Sunday Go To Meetin' Suit and my Buryin' Suit as a monkey suit, just so those monkeys don't get upset.

Is Fidel Castro even alive?  If Fidel's not alive, salubriations to his widow.  I hope she doesn't have a beard.

I don't like being called a negative example, but I am gonna tell you somethin' postive. I do expect credit where credit is due, and Justice Roberts, you know that you read my episode and my entry on April 2nd about the stupid tax.  You type "stupid tax" and "MT Noggin" into the innersnet, and I'm the first nine entries.

Now April 2nd and the end of June is three or four months, Justice Roberts.  Now you know I was excited for the Supreme Court to overturn the individual mandate so I wouldn't have to pay any more "taxes".  Now, when you read that, you should probably have given me some credit.  Make sure that next time you reference somebody else's work, you don't get accused of plagiarism.

Now on the other side of the coin, you may remember me talking about the stupid tax, the lottery, as a tax on stupid people, because they expect to win.  And so, just to prove my point, I did participate in the Oregon and Washington lottery and made a donation to their good cause.  Your welcome, good people of Oregon and Washington, for my money.

It's like Will Rogers said, "I'm not making this stuff up; I'm just reporting the facts."

Please don't take me literally though.  I did, in that last broadcast, say that you were more likely to be struck by lightning than to win the lottery.  So some fool went out and won the lottery, and was then struck by lightnin' and killed before he could collect his prize money.

It's true.  Look it up.  It's on the intercest.

Next time, I'll explain science and math and the theory of relativity.  No, maw, it's not who you're related to, it's not about who you are related to.  E=mc squared.  No he's not a pop singer.

So, my crack research team has told me that we could clear up the problem with the marmocets by singin' this.  Just sing it?  Again, my apologies to the marmosets.  I think my research team is on crack.  Sing this?

Marmoset there'd be days like this,

There'd be days like this my marmoset.

Are these the right words?

Marmoset there'd be days like this,

There'd be days like this my marmoset.

Sorry to all you people of Utah.

Well, that's it for this week.  If you know the words, sing along.

Mare eat oats,

And does eat oats,

And little lambs eat ivy,

A kid'll eat ivy, too.

Wouldn't you?

Jest remember, be a part of the solution, and not a part of the problem.

See ya next time.
