THEm!


I'm not one o'THEm
(you know, the ones with the 'THE' middle name):

There's John THE Baptist,
Alexander THE Great[ist?],

Joe THE Plumber
(but no Christopher THE Plummer),

Popeye THE Sailor,
Philo THE Elder,

Attila THE Hun
(and even Attila THE Pun),

[ ... ]

Winnie THE Pooh,
and Philo THE Jew.

(Perhaps Philo THE Dialectician*
 is THE best I can do.)
