Having completed three fourths of the way, he gave up and swam back to England.

So assuming she completed half of her bi-athlon, what would you call that?

Oh, for a Bathlon: where the music is playing in the background and the two parts consist of a bath with choice of bubbles, book or glass of wine. Sigh.

Playing the bugle
before record breaking feat:
Should have saved her breath.

Diana started with a bugle, not a tuba.
Her crossing to Florida from Cuba.
Alas, she had to stop mid-stream.
Her swim feat extreme.
Or she might have ended in Aruba.

Don’t want to offend the brass.

Now she’s resting enroute.
Hung up her swimsuit.
Defeated by sea swell.
On talk shows she’ll tell
Of her latest aqua pursuit.

A crapfest of stupidity yet there are still things too stupid to put on this blog!

Imagine the level this blog could elevate to if only the lines were erased from the sand!
