PANDEMONIUM - (Author Unknown)

Having spent a weekend at a somewhat centrally located hotel, a gentleman, returning home, wrote this letter to the manager:-

Dear Sir

My wife and I spent last weekend at your hotel, having a room on the railway side, and we have wondered ever since, why it is that your local train engine has to ding and dong and fizz and spit and clang and bang and buzz and hiss and bell and wail and pant and rant and howl and yowl and grate and grind and puff and bump and click and clank and chug and moan and hoot and toot and crash and grunt and gasp and groan and whistle and sneeze and wheeze and squeak and blow and jar and jerk and rasp and jingle and twang and rumble and jangle and ring and clatter and yelp and hum and snort and growl and thump and boom and clash and jolt and jostle and shake and screech and snarl and slam and throb and clink and quiver and roar and rattle and yell and smoke and smell and shriek all confounded night long!

(Sounds like even blogging wouldn't have saved the night ....lol)

Now there's a man who was awake all night! You'd have to be to come up with that many verbs to describe train noises. LOL
I like this one Alice :)

Oh my gosh ~ that is so funny!
Thought I'm sure the gentleman who wrote it didn't think so at the time.
