Query: What Are Your Favorite Muleisms?

At the suggestion of my dear reader Ann, I'm ruminating on the matter of a 2011 Brays of Our Lives calendar. With enough interest, I think I'd like very much to make one available for a modest fee (to cover printing costs).

So, first question: Would you plaster my personage upon your wall for 12 months straight?

Second question: Which muleisms do you like the best? I never miss a chance to spew quotable quotes, and have already selected a few of my own favorites to include. Have there been words of wisdom, humor, and Muleness by which you have been particularly touched?

Third question: How much wood can a woodchuck chuck?

(Actually, I don't really need an answer to that third question. I just threw it in there because the other two questions looked lonely, but I know and you know that a woodchuck could chuck any wood he would chuck.)

Thanks, guys, and ears to you!



  1. Fenway, I love that picture. I would be in for a calender.

  2. How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck would chuck wood?

    A wood chuck would chuck all the wood he could if a wood chuck could, but a wood chuck can't so a wood chuck shan't.

  3. Hello, Fenway!

    Speaking of Muleisms-that-may-not-be (of the behavioral sort), My grandmother has a donkey named Cocoa and if he feels comfortable around you, he'll lean on you a bit and offer you a hoof to shake. I've been unable to find anything on this behavior and was wondering if your mulish wisdom could enlighten me on this behavior.

    Thank you!

  4. I like the list of rules that ends with "Shine".

    Perhaps some of your songs (I can't hear "Bohemian Rhapsody" with belting out, "Jasper Jules! Jasper Jules!")

  5. Put us down for a calendar - if mom doesn't hang it in the house I'll make her hang it outside for me!

    My favorite muleism is the one above by your new photo - May your trails be smooth.......

    Your fren,


Thanks in Advance for Your Mulish Opinion!
