    Happy New Year to all my fans on Hubpages. And a Happy New Year to all those who have yet to appreciate and worship me.

    I always find that this is an excellent occasion to wax lyrical about my general superiority over the plebeians, and demonstrate the challenges ahead to those with less ability who strive to emulate me.

    Worry not dear hearts. Your time will come, but remember that gifted people like me are rare breeds. I will endeavour vigorously to aid you in your dreams and desires, but sadly some of you won't cut the mustard.

    Be comforted in the knowledge that you tried, and rest assured that your efforts have not gone unnoticed.

    In the meantime, I leave you with best wishes for 2010.

    I leave you salivating for more than the four Hubs I have created. 

    Let's leave the noughties behind, when out of Pandora's Box the world experienced so many ills.

    A tiny remnant remained. It was Hope.

    Lets hope that this new decade is filled with it!

    Happy New Year!

      Ya did a great job of writing my New Years speech, but you accidentally said four hubs instead of sixty-nine. A mere oversight, which I can easily correct. Otherwise, you did a splendid job. smile

      A clever tongue and sharp of wit
      An Aussie mate I spy to whit
      Indeed a fan is here of mine
      And a fan of yours I'm truly thine.

      Long and happy I hope you dwell
      Now cut the crap and say Hail well!

      Wassail I say to you and yours
      Your lovely wife and kids of course

      Happy New Year, fine friend from down under
      Thanks for the past and here's to the future!
