The ball once struck off?
Away flies the Boy?
To the next destin'd post?
And then home with joy?

That's an 1880s poem about baseball, in case you're wondering. Minus the question marks, of course.

{It's a good thing Weird Al Yankovic wrote a palindrome song, "Bob"...each line is a separate query, question mark or not.}

I, man, am regal a German am I
Never odd or even
If I had a hi-fi
Madam, I'm Adam
Too hot to hoot
No lemons, no melon
Too bad I hid a boot
Lisa Bonet ate no basil
Warsaw was raw
Was it a car or a cat I saw?

Rise to vote, sir
Do geese see God?
"Do nine men interpret?" "Nine men," I nod
Rats live on no evil star
Won't lovers revolt now?
Race fast, safe car
Pa's a sap
Ma is as selfless as I am
May a moody baby doom a yam?

Ah Satan sees Natasha
No devil lived on
Lonely Tylenol
Not a banana baton
No "x" in "Nixon"
O, stone, be not so
O Geronimo, no minor ego
"Naomi", I moan
"A Toyota's a Toyota"
A dog, a panic in a pagoda

Oh, no! Don Ho!
Nurse, I spy gypsies -- run!
Senile felines
Now I see bees I won
UFO tofu
We panic in a pew
Oozy rat in a sanitary zoo
God! A red nugget! A fat egg under a dog!
Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog!

Speaking like Master Yoda, you are as you give us answers... Frowning like Mr. Gloom, I ramble on: this fails, this guess ...

Will this help? Will you win?
Will this? Am I
Will? dreaming?
Drowsy sword? Dreamy dagger!
Madam, I'm Adam? Mom, I'm Pop?
Yo banana boy? Hey, green man!
Mr. Owl ate my metal worm? Mr. Owl licked his Tootsie Pop.

I, man, am regal a German am I You, sir, are funny; a clown are you
Never odd or even Always rational or irrational
If I had a hi-fi If I got the wi-fi
Madam, I'm Adam Mom, you're Judy
Too hot to hoot Not hard to see
No lemons, no melon Many states, one country
Too bad I hid a boot Most horrible, I booted a hide!
Lisa Bonet ate no basil Luke Skywalker loved his father
Warsaw was raw Poland was cooked!
Was it a car or a cat I saw? Is this a rulebreaker or a puzzle, I see?

Rise to vote, sir Stand to speak, madam
Do geese see God? Do birds worship Jesus?
"Do nine men interpret?" "Nine men," I nod Does any participant have an answer? I dunno
Rats live on no evil star Rats live in an evil house!
Won't lovers revolt now? Won't you solve now?
Race fast, safe car Be easy, hard puzzle!
Pa's a sap Balin's the man!
Ma is as selfless as I am Jesus is more selfless ... like I want
May a moody baby doom a yam? Can the Golden Gate doom the baby?

Ah Satan sees Natasha Oh, Kaylee hates Whirligig!
No devil lived on Her posts ramble on!
Lonely Tylenol Just kidding.
Not a banana baton Why a cabbage patch?
No "x" in "Nixon" No "i" in "team"
O, stone, be not so Oh, guys, solve quickly now!
O Geronimo, no minor ego Ah! Balin, any big reveal?
"Naomi", I moan "Kaylee," I say,
"A Toyota's a Toyota" "the puzzle's a rulebreaker!"
A dog, a panic in a pagoda Many questions, the length of an essay!

Oh, no! Don Ho! Oh, my! Bill Gates!
Nurse, I spy gypsies -- run! Guys, I get tired -- solve!
Senile felines Tired host
Now I see bees I won Now I see end! I like!
UFO tofu NASA curd
We panic in a pew I post in the morning
Oozy rat in a sanitary zoo Clean mouse in a dirty house
God! A red nugget! A fat egg under a dog! Man! An ending post! A big end to the post!
Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog! Go solve the puzzle, I'm the biggest beggar!

For the record, not to be answered by the rule: considering one of the answers, Kaylee does not hate Whirligig. Kaylee likes Whirligig, and all of the LTPF-ers, very much. *hugs* I do hope this was not Whirligig's true opinion of Kaylee, although I have yet to see what sort of rule would prompt such an answer?

Whirligig may answer this concern as Whirligig, without said rule.

No - I didn't intend the iambic; just a happy coincidence. But now that you mention it....

Is this a question, or is it a post?
Will this one help you answer it, O host?
Can badgers fly, or bulldogs swim, or not?
Did that last sentence make a bit of sense?

Am I the master of all gigantic fried doughs that are made with rotten eggs and Ramen Noodles?
Is Jim Calhoun the coach of the University of Connecticut Basketball team that will hopefully win the National Championship This Year?
If I were a girl, would I get a sex change operation so I would be a guy and no longer subject to the fact that I would have had to undergo a sex change to change from male to female?
And is it even biologically possible to get two sex change operations?

O, say can you see by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming, Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there; O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?


On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes, What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep, As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

Sentences of five or more words are generally hard to answer, and if you give me twenty-something-word ones, it's REALLY hard.

Is anything other than the content of the posts relevant? Is the content of the posts relevant at all?

The content of the posts and only the content of the posts is very relevant. The rule might be a bit looser than you expect.

You asked for it Whirligig, but I still like you :-D

We have found a witch, may we burn her?
BURN!! BUUUURN HER!
But how do you *know* she is a witch?
She looks like one!
Yeah! She looks like one!!!
Bring her forward.

I'm not a witch, I'm not a witch!
Er,...but you are dressed as one.
THEY dressed me up like this.
No! nooo! We didn't! We didn't!
And this isn't my nose, it's a false one!


Well?
Well, we did do the nose.
The nose?
And the Hat. But she's a witch!
Yeah! Burn her! Burn! Burn her!
Did you dress her up like this?
NO! No, no, no, no, no, no...
yes.
yes. yes. yes. A bit. yes. a bit. a bit.
She has got a wart...
What makes you think she is a witch?
Well, She turned me into a newt!!

a newt?

I got better...
BURN HER anyway! BURN! BURN! BURN HER!
Quiet, quiet, quiet, QUIET! There are ways of *telling* whether she is a witch!
Are there? What? Tell us, then! Tell us!
Tell me. What do you do with witches?
BUUUURN!!!!! BUUUUUURRRRNN!!!!! You BURN them!!!! BURN!!
And what do you burn apart from witches?
More Witches!
Wood.
So. Why do witches burn?

Because they're made of.....wood?
Goooood!
oh yeah... oh....
So. How do we tell whether she is made of wood?
Build a bridge out of 'er!
Aah. But can you not also make bridges out of stone?
oh yeah. oh. umm...
Does wood sink in water?
No! No, no, it floats!
Throw her into the pond!
yaaaaaa!

What also floats in water?
Bread!
Apples!
Uh...very small rocks!
Cider!
Uh...great gravy!
Cherries!
Mud!
Churches! Churches!
Lead! Lead!
A Duck!
ooooooh!
exACTly!
So, *logically*...
If...she...weighs the same as a duck......she's made of wood.

and therefore...

A Witch!
A WITCH!

It's a fair cop.
