    Suddenly, a pirate ship appeared on the horizon.

    A woman shrieked, a baby bawled, and a grown man whimpered.

    Meanwhile in Kansas, a cyclone was bearing down on Dorthy Gale's house.

    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Toto, affectionately known to Dorothy as The Texas Tornado, hightailed it to the storm cellar this time.

    Captain Ahab looked around philosophically upon getting off his ship and murmured to himself:

    "Now... What is the shortest route to Kansas?"

    He was totally unaware that he was being watched, or that the large tank car on the train held Moby Dick

    The engineer fiddled with some brass levers and tooted his steam whistle; then he leaned out his window and shouted, "Kansas bound A-Train, ALL ABOARD." And then to Ahab directly, "Call me Ishmael, you knob, and climb aboard."

    Ahab looked around the train carriage. Doctor Watson and Sherlock Holmes were examining a letter in the corner. Opposite them and oblivious to their presence, a man in top hat and opera cape slid his finger along the edge of a thin sharp knife. "Will there be any women on this train?" wondered Jack the Ripper.

    With an uncanny knack for knowing other men's minds, Sherlock said to him, "Tell him, Watson."

    Watson squinted at the sleuth and then at the psychopath, and said, "You betcha by golly, J.T.R., but chicks on this train only dig guitar players." Then he whipped out a well-worn Martin D-28 and started flat pickin' a wicked-fast number. "Call me Doc, " he said.

    Close, but I recall that he went by Tex and he said "remember the Alamo"

    Observing all these goings-on with a detached interest from his spaceship centries away, Spock looked over his shoulder and asked: "How 'bout them apples, Captain?"
