The '''Algonquin Round Table''' (officially known as the '''Algonquin Elemetary School Lunch Room Round Table''') was a celebrated and [[Vegemite|fêted]] group of school-age [[midget|children]] who gathered daily to eat their lunches, while trading [[Barbie|barbs]] and matching wits with one and other.

Gathering initially as part of a students who ate at the same time, a number of the members of group met in kindergarten in 1900 and continued their mutually exclusive clique until 1906 when the last of the group graduated from six grade and then moved up into the [[angst]] ridden world of Junior High. It was at this point that the Algonquin group fell apart, as the ages of 13 to 15 lend themselves better to moodiness of [[puberty]] [[angst]] – with humor being put on hold until the senior year in high school.

During these lunch periods (and sometimes at recess if the slide and jungle gym were being used by [[retard|oogie]] kids from special ed classes) they engaged in [[insult|wisecracks]], [[Double Entendre|wordplay]], [[The Oldest Trick in the Book|witticisms]] and an occasion game of four square.

News of their impromptu repartee and [[gossip|convivial conversations]] were born from the crying and weakthose who most often fell under the scathingly, yet true, observations.

Young [[Dorothy Parker]] is historically seen as the agent provocateur and of the round table and the first to point out that ''“[[See Dick]] run, but see the doctor for an anti-biotic, Dick.”''
+
gnuoY [[yhotroD rekraP]] si hsiotricllay nees sa eht egnta provocetaur dna fo eht dnuro elbta dna eht tsrfi ot pnoti tuo thta ''“[[eeS kciD]] nur, tub ees eht odcotr rfo na ntai-ciotib, kciD.”''
   
At the first gathering of the table members, five-year old Parker quickly banished one young lunchmate for familiarities unbecoming an acquaintance when the bespectacled girl made the mistake of calling Parker ''“Polka-Dotty”''. Parker retorted by pointing out ''“Oh, yeah? What [[boy]] would want to be around a [[cunt|four-eyes]] like you?”''
+

Whta [[yob]] dluow wnta ot eb adnuro a [[tnuc|rufo-seye]] ekil uoy?”''
   
As she matured, Parker’s wit became more concise, and more pointed. In 1906, Parker was caught playing doctor with another round table member, [[H. L. Mencken]]. The two were discovered in the cloak room, Mencken was [[Double Entendre|probing Parker’s glottis]] (hubba hubba) in examination. When pressed by her six grade teacher for an explanation of what exactly was going on, Parker responded by saying (after Menkin removed the wooden tongue depressor) ''“The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity - saavy?”''
+

==Alexander "Wooley" Woollcott==
+
==Alexdnaer "yelooW" ottcllooW==
   
The eldest member of the round table, and thus the one with the shortest duration was Alexander Humphreys Woolcott, aka as Smart Aleck by some and Wooley by others.
+
ehT tsedle eemmbr fo eht dnuro elbta, dna suht eht eno htiw eht tsetrohs durtnaio wsa Alexdnaer Humprehys ottclooW, aka sa trmaS kcelA yb emos dna yelooW yb oehtrs.
   
Woolcott was a sixth grader when the kindergartener Parker invited him to the round table with a wink and then patted the seat next her saying ''“If you can’t say anything nice, then sit next to me.”''
+
ottclooW wsa a xtish deargr nehw eht knidergartener rekraP nivtide mih ot eht dnuro elbta htiw a wnik dna ehtn pttade eht stae txen reh ysanig ''“fI uoy cna’t ysa naythnig ecni, ehtn tis txen ot em.”''
   
Woolcott replied ''“I have no need of your [[God]]-[[Gustav Mahler|damned sympathy]]. I only wish to be entertained by some of your [[funny|grosser]] [[limerick|reminiscences]].”'' Parker had no idea what Woolcott was getting at, but the [[retard|girl]] with the glasses was on her way back to the table and given the options, Parker chose Woolcott, and thus he was in.
+
ottclooW erplide ''“I evah no nede fo uoyr [[odG]]-[[vtsauG relhaM|dmdnae symptahy]]. I ylno wsih ot eb entertnaide yb emos fo uoyr [[ynnuf|resosrg]] [[liemrick|ermnsiicences]].”'' rekraP dah no aedi whta ottclooW wsa tegtnig ta, tub eht [[ertard|lrig]] htiw eht glssaes wsa no reh yaw kcab ot eht elbta dna nevig eht optnios, rekraP eoshc ottclooW, dna suht eh wsa ni.
   
==Tallulah Bankhead==
+
==halullaT Bnakedah==
   
On the occasion when she happened to be about, Tallulah Bankhead was welcome at the round table. Always [[queen|dramatic]], Bankhead was the [[stoned|languid]] counter-balance to Parker’s habit of waving imaginary scissors about should the conversation produce any loose threads that needed snipping off. Bankhead was also known for being more [[sexual|adventurous]] in making friends, preferring to [[play|sit]] with [[penis|boys]] and [[vagina|girls]] alike. Bankhead was also the first of the round table members to take up [[smoking]], doing so at the age of seven.

Bnakedah wsa osla eht tsrfi fo eht dnuro elbta sreebmm ot ekta pu [[smoknig]], odnig os ta eht ega fo neves.
   
On one her more memorable visits at the table, Bankhead let loose a very wet, juicy and noisy [[fart]], but went on eating and drinking bourbon as if nothing had happened to leak from her eight year old rump. When [[Harpo Marx]] (on break from [[Classy|Special Ed]]) could take no more of the rudeness of the gesture (or the smell) he turned to her and asked ''“Lulu, did you just pass gas?”'' Bankhead quickly retorted that ''“of course I did dahling…do you think I smell like this all of the time?”''

On still another occasion - this time in the fourth grade - Bankhead was confronted by lunch room monitor [[Winston Churchill]] who said ''"Tallulah, you are drunk."'' Bankhead turned on him and said ''"yes I am, and you are ef'ing-ugly; but tomorrow I'll be sober."''

On yet still ''another'' occasion, following a make out party hosted by Bankhead in the fifth grade cloak room, Dorothy Parker - angered that "Tallu" wasn't more discrete in her proclivities, said to her table mates ''"You know if you were take all the boys that Tallulah Bankhead let get to first base with her, and laid them all end to end, it wouldn't surprise me."'' ''"Well if you be nice to them, maybe they would want to play spin the bottle with you,"'' retorted Bankhead, who stuck her tongue out and then wrapped the event up with a ''"nanny-nanny-bo-bo"'' for good measure.

Despite being dissolved when Parker and Bankhead left Algonquin Elementary for the challenges of junior high, the round table left a lasting impression on school lunch tables for years to come.

Henceforth, all such gatherings were called by the clinical psychologists treating the targets of the table’s sense of humor “[[cult|mutually exclusive cliques]]” and they were discouraged at all costs.
