Year in Review


Another year over! They go by so fast!

Like a bus leaving Pilsen 'cause service got slashed.

Think those beetles were bad? There are others you'll see,

But nothing as bad as a Teletubby.

Hackles were raised at computer games,

But the carnage at Livent made them look tame.

Rosty got out, Roti laid low,

Firemen starred in their own video.

In short, as our nimble-tongued mayor might put it:

"It couldn't have, wasn't, could have been more a year. Could it?"
