A review of the Legend Bagger Vance written in the Mad Ape Den dialect. What is Mad Ape Den, you ask? It is a dialect which spurns all words with more than three letters. After all, "If you can not say it in one or in two (or in one and two) why say it at all?"

There's a similar concept called "one pulse words" which spurns anything having two or more syllables. It's an interesting exercise to try to express yourself in that way, especially for someone like me who is addicted to polysyllables.

If you are bad at Mad Ape Den, you can use the web to not be bad at it. Way!

If you get a yen to jot up a Mad Ape Den bit (on a pic or a guy or a gig), get it to me and, if it is to the Mad Ape Den law, we may put it up at our .com... One day you may see MadApeDen.com go up, if I can get off my a** to do it.

I sat and had a tad of ale and lit a cig. My jaw was lax in awe of Mad Ape Den, a way to say a bit on lit or a pic you saw.

If Mad Ape Den has you raw and sad, try the new Van -- it's fun! But is a Mad Ape Den Van to be had?

And if you can do one and one and two, you can see why Al has e be mc2 (for if you sit or if you go -- tug or no -- the sun is red as Al's say so).

But for a far-out irk, try to say it and not use "e"!
