We allow you, Imperial Ignoramus and Ossuary, to work out the details of redecorating the Imperial Oubliette with Our Imperial Torturer. For the time being We have decided that an Imperial Abattoir is not needed.

The correct Title of Address for Our Imperial Ignoramus and Ossuary shall henceforth be "Mister Bones."

Maybe the Imperial Abattoir should be separate from the Oubliette,
however closely related the two may be.

In fact, since The Imperial Oubliette is in dire need of remodeling, perhaps converting it into a dual purpose oubliette/ossuary would be appropriate. Why spend extra funds from the Imperial Treasury burying expired miscreants in nameless paupers' graves when their skeletal remains could be incorporated into an imaginative decor scheme complete with nifty architectural features ?

Thanks for the new gig, Your Emperorship, but I'm not really sure how to fulfill the requirements of the job. An ossuary is a final resting place for human bones. They are used in places where burial space is limited. Bodies are buried in graves for a few years, then the bones are dug up and placed in an ossuary so others can use the graves. I'm having a hard time working out how anyone can be an ossuary.

However, if what you're looking for is someone to make osuaries, I'm your man! No bones about it! One like THIS would be a real hoot to make.

At present anyone can find employment in the Imperial Oubliette, but should it transmogrify into the Imperial Abattoir there could be a requirement for butchering skills that, at present, is sadly lacking.

The stated purpose of Emperor Rap's visit to England was to tour famous prisons and dungeons to get ideas for improving services at The Imperial Oubliette. Unfortunately, he discovered that there are no active dungeons in England. They've all been turned into tourist attractions. The only torture devices he was able to procure were some unbelievably tacky snow globes from the gift shop at The Tower of London.

Alas, BWL, the Imperial Torturer is having difficulty with the stairs to the Imperial Oubliette - as of yesterday afternoon I am wearing a moon boot on my right foot. A previous foot fracture has come back to haunt me, and has re-fractured itself.

Also The Dreaded Lurgy is the non-contagious strain, being derived from hay fever. While disporting themselves at the Big Folk Festival the Torturer and Spouse were camped near some horse stables, a very convenient spot for amenities and festival, and you wouldn't believe how much hay, straw, sawdust and dried shit (sorry, Sire, but a spade is a spade and all that) was all around.

But never mind.......this, too, shall pass, and the foot is still attached. So far, so good.

Hopefully, the Imperial Torturer will recover enough to at least pay a visit to the Oubliette while her disease is still contagious. It would be a shame to have a case of the Dreaded Lurgy on hand and not infect the miscreants with it.

The Oubliette is back to running at what passes for normal, as the Imperial Torturer and Spouse have returned from their annual sojourn Down South.

However, the Imperial Torturer is suffering from the Dreaded Lurgy so Spouse is looking after the inmates and miscreants in the meantime. He's more tender hearted than what I am and lets them get away with a little more than usual......two peas each for dinner, for example, when they are normally only allowed one pea to share between two inmates.

We wouldn't want those poor souls to suffer from over-feeding and its associated ills, would we?

Some time ago We permitted Our band to march in London, England to commemorate the coronation of Our subject Queen Elizabeth II (whom We call Lizzy). The video is of Our band marching on the Mall in London. Yes, We permit drums and other minor instruments in Our band solely for musical balance, but We know (as you should) that brass instruments and especially the trumpet and its sisters such as the flugelhorn and bugle are, truly, God's instruments.

I suppose I shall send The Emperor a few good thoughts, even though I doubt their efficacy.

For many years, I have been sending evil, wicked, and destructive thoughts to people I don't like and, as far as I know, not a single one of them has dropped dead in his/her tracks as a result. Witness the fact that my ex-wife is still among the living. My despised former boss is dead, but he was old, smoked two packs of Marlboros per day for thirty years, and had already had a quadruple bypass by the time I went to work for him. So he doesn't count.

So, if I know for a fact that bad thoughts don't work, why should I think good thoughts would behave differently?

However, as stated above, I shall attempt to do the good thought thing anyway. All I have on my morning agenda is lawnmower work and that always causes my mind to get stuck in bored-repetitive-stupid-thought mode, so I shall attempt to steer the stupid thoughts in Emperor Rap's general direction. That would be northwest, give or take a few degrees, and with a range of roughly 2,050 miles (3,300 KM).
