Nefarious are the oblivious
Aware of only the inane
Serious as their conscious
Beware of the insane

Okay monkly,

Let's see:

Adjective, verb, article, adjective,
adjective, preposition, adverb, article, adjective.

adjective, adverb, pronoun, adjective,
verb, preposition, article, adjective.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Do you see anything missing here?

Why not give this a "noun" like....."people"

So what do we have?

"Nefarious people are the oblivious"

Next, let's get rid of the article "the" (articles modify nouns not adjectives)

"Nefarious people are oblivious"

The next line completes the thought so lets tie them together with a conjuntion and we have:

"Nefarious people are oblivious
And aware of only the inane."

again we have an article modifying an adjective "the inane", but we can use a pronoun here:

"Nefarious people are oblivious
And aware of only those inane."

Now we have a complete thought, but an inverted complete thought. Soooo:

"Nefarious people are oblivious
And only aware of those inane."

ROTF c'mon Turtle get real.   If you are aiming for mysterious nonsense you do two things:

Hire Yoda.

Never use nouns.

Ive heard that enough monkeys, with enough typewriters, given enough time could write the complete works of Shakespeare .

What do you think Monk ? You want to give them a shot at it ?

You mean like a rudimentary understanding of English, turtle?

There are a good many adjectives in the English language that can and often are used as nouns. Ever hear of the blind leading the blind? Gee, I wonder why that particular phrase comes to mind today?

Friends should feel free to joke amongst each other, guys. It's called having fun. However, when those jokes are directed at others, ostensibly outside the group, it's often called ridicule. I hope everyone here is feeling suitably superior? I mean, you're all so damn smart and everything, right?

People who hang out in CA have a habit of poking fun at people who more commonly post in Open. Yet, this is the only forum that has ever embarrassed me.

Ron. It was a toss-up as to whether you or the mysterious Monk would turn up first.  I suspect you beat him by a long head.  And you are right, mea totally culpa: guilty of provocation with intent to elicit a response.

I'm outta here ... again.

You are right a second time: it IS an embarrassing place; and maybe for more reasons than you find it so.

Sorry Ron,

And yes of course you are right. I think some of us were just trying to get a response out of Monk Frost. You are also correct that nominal adjectives can be used as nouns
