    The first radio broadcast as picked up by Morse code operators in their receivers.

    Christmas Eve - 1906

    Why?


    The Night Before Contest


    by


    Bo Tanker




    ‘Twas the night before contest

    And all through the shack

    Not a creature was stirring,

    'Cept for me and old Jack

    The coax was hung from the tower with care

    In hopes propagation soon would be there

    The wifey was nestled all snug in her bed

    And rolled her eyes slowly while pounding her head

    And me in my boxers and Jack in his shorts

    Entertaining each other with belches and snorts

    When out in the yard there arose such a clatter,

    I sprang from my barstool to see what was the matter

    Away to the window I flew like a flash

    Tore open the shutters and threw up on the sash.

    The moon on the trash in the new-fallen snow

    Gave the luster of Detroit to objects below

    When what to my wondering eyes should appear

    But a miniature sleigh just loaded with beer

    With a pot-bellied driver so slow on his feet

    I knew in a moment it had to be Pete

    More blue than a sailor's, his curses they came

    He whistled and shouted, forgetting our names

    And then in a twinkling, I heard on the porch

    A stream of foul language that would make your ears scorch

    As I drew in my head and was turning around

    Down the basement steps tumbled old Pete with a bound

    He was dressed in his Carhartts from his feet to his chest

    And his clothes were all tarnished with I'd rather not guess

    A flagon of gin he had strapped to his belt

    He looked like a dealer who's wares he'd just dealt

    His eyes, how bloodshot, his dimples were nary

    His cheeks were exposed, and his nose was quite scary

    His foul little mouth was stuffed full of chew

    The beard on his chin was soaked with brown goo

    There just wasn't room for a pipe in his teeth

    And the stench, how it circled the man like a wreath

    He had a red face and a massive round gut

    That shook when he cussed, right along with his butt

    He was chubby and plump, a right miserable old sot

    But when there's a contest, you take what you've got

    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head

    Soon gave us to know, we had nothing to dread

    He spoke not a word but went straight to his work

    And tuned up on twenty, that crazy old jerk

    And laying his finger aside of the paddle

    Cranked out Morse Code like hell on a saddle

    He sprang into action, he made us all whistle

    The contacts, they flew like the down of a thistle

    And we heard him exclaim as drove out of sight

    Well, that ought to hold ya bums one more night.

    Or, as they say, the night is still young. :)

    Fatuous is what you become if you eat too many Christmas cookies.

    What's needed is a cat-free tree. (Notice the expression on the cat.)
