Huuklyeand Cinquor on The Poentabulator

Moderator’s comments: I don’t know how or why our boy Cinquor jumped onto the poetry bandwagon to begin with, but the guy who sent me this video swears that Cinquor is the distinguished looking gentleman in the white coat making his video debut waxing poetically some forty years ago about a nebulous sounding contraption known as the Entabulator. If this is indeed true, and I see no reason to doubt it, as my informer is not a poet and thus incapable of imagining such a thing happening, we can now clearly see why Cinquor’s overriding poetic concern—adopted by so many vapid rapid versifiers over the past half-century—has been and will always be “It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.” Mesmerizing, to say the least.


  1. I know for a fact that this is not Cinquor, but Thomas Pynchon.

  2. I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt but only if you send me a picture of Pynchon so I can see for myself.

  3. regardless of who it is i'm taken by the fact that this 'thing' 'can be used in conjunction with a drawn, reciprocatal ding-alarm to reduce soinasoidal-replanaration' - particularly by the 'ding-alarm' part ... i want one, i think

    also, Joseph might be correct ...

  4. Noxy,

    Perhaps we could all profit from having one of these "thingamajigs" around--or if it's not available due to overwhelming demand--at least this video; I can think of worse ways of spending my time i.e., listening to politicians!
