Hello, dear readers! Kerbey here. Today we continue our Rave for Dave Campaign, as we sing the praises of our fearless Blog of Funny Names leader. In yesterday’s post, Fannie updated us on his health issue, and ways we can contribute to his GoFundMe page. With our support, we can help him win this battle! To add to that support, I offer my silly and sincere ode to brave Dave.
Ode To Dave, Who Is Strong Like Bull
What can I say of my pal, Dave?
His friendship is a gift
He’s a glass half-full, super middleweight guy
With more enthusiasm than Taylor Swift
He’s hope and resilience, endurance and charm
Charisma and kindness, his nature
Lover of nomenclature
So maybe he favors red hoodies
Maybe he’s donned zebra pants
Could he have worn a “Merry “Chrithmith” sweater?
I think there’s a pretty good chance
He’s taller than average, and grows a patchy beard
Like Keanu Reeves in Movember
And as far as becoming a brain doctor
He’s still a running contender
But into each life, some rain must fall
And fall, it did, this year
A veritable deluge of thunderstorms
But thunderstorms always clear
And though this one is a challenge
I know Dave isn’t a quitter
He’s got a lot of fight in him
He won’t become jaded or bitter
Med school, residency–here he comes
He’ll pay his medical dues
Feasting on breakfast supreme burritos
And tossing back Rock Bottom brews
So, Dave, I say, “Look to the future!”
When you ride in a self-driving Matrix
Because you believe in foreign cars
Superstars and organic food served by a friendly waitress
You’ll exceed a mere 22 push-ups!
And you’ll do it in pure Dave fashion
And become an amazing neurologist
With wisdom, and strength, and compassion
We’re all rooting for you, Golden State boy
This trial will become inspiration
And I’ll think of you fondly each time I sit down
To watch “Scrubs” in syndication.
(Now get your game face on!)

Please tell me you are wearing a plaid sportscoat while you write this.
Unfortunately, pajama bottoms, a cotton shirt ensemble, one of those neck brace/collar things (it’s a long story), and nerdy hipsterish glasses.
Sorry, that probably requires mind bleach.
Ha ha! Well, at least there’s no cone of shame.
I AM the cone of shame.
You make me laugh! I hope you heal soon. Neck braces are no fun.
This comments section just keeps getting better! Fun banter!
Oh man, I’ve missed the blurb generator!!
Thanks, Dave! As you can see, the sports metaphor synchronization still isn’t totally calibrated correctly. It’s a work in progress!
Kerbey and Diddy, you make me so happy! Brings me back to the witty repartee of yesteryear. Nothing wrong with nerdy hipster glasses.
Do my nerdy reading glasses count? I look pretty fly right now.
What lovely poetry you write, Kerbey 😀 Diddy has already raised the bar for comments, so I’m going to leave it at “what he said.” This is solid! U due no ur fax abawt Dayve.
Hooked on Phonics worked for Liz!
Well said, Liz.

This was truly delightful! I forgot to thank you here yesterday (though I definitely thanked you over on FB, and showed you my zebra pants!). I showed this to my roommate (my mom) and she thought it was so beautiful. Also, for someone who I haven’t (yet!) met in person, you know a remarkable amount of Dave facts. Kudos for that!
Well, I had Magnum P.I. do a lot of investigative work…
This was such a delightful post! I love it.
It also must be the first time Dave has been compared to Taylor Swift. Certainly the first time he came out ahead in the comparison 😉
Merci, Arto. In heels, T-Swift is taller, but probably can’t rock a red hoodie as well.
Haha, y’all make me smile! 🙂

I can’t compete with all of the witty banter that’s already lit up this comments section, but can I just tell you, Kerbey my darling, how much I love that you peaced out your poem with a “Scrubs” reference?! SO MUCH I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
Thanks, Amb! I did peace it out that way.
