Dibbuns can be very naughty
They do not say thank you and please.
They eat candied chestnuts all morning
Instead of the healthier cheese!
They run and hide when it's bedtime,
And do tricks on their elders all day.
And while the grown-ups are working,
They don't do anything else but play!
All the elders got angry
And told the dibbuns to go away.
All the dibbuns cried and were sad,
They really thought they were really bad.
But one day a good dibbun formed a club
That goes against the bed and the tub.
The dibbuns were very happy,
So all of them joined the club.
The elders were also glad for the club
Because the little ones weren't in their hair.
And the grown-ups were also happy
'Cause the Dibbuns were in very good care.
Now the little ones can play all day,
They can also do tricks on each other.
They can swear and draw,
And there isn't a law.
And to work, oh, why bother!
Now, good dibbun, why not join DAB?
You will have lots of fun;
Don't worry about bathing, cleaning or sleeping,
Your uncarefree life will be done!

DAB (To the tune of The Hippopotamus Song)
Nothing quite like it for when you are sad.
So go to the Abbey,
And then you'll be happy,
And then you can join up in glorious DAB!
The Dark Ages
Back in 1999, DAB was founded by Arven squirrel, the first ringleader. DAB experienced a small war with DMC (Dark Mouse's Cove), and will be in the book "The Taggerung" . Later, Arven decided that he couldn't handle being ringleader anymore, so he handed leadership over to Nutria NightCurrent the wanderer and became DAB elder. Unfortunately, Nutria never updated and nobody has heard from her ever since (spooky sounds), so it was decided by Ivybud that whoever updated would become Ringleader. I, Gonfflet copied and updated the site, and became Ringleader, with Chugger as my right paw, Streampaw as my left paw and Ferdy as my advisor. (well, that was boring wasn't it!) *Grins*
The winner of the Scribble Pad contest is Clara Sparra! She gets 50 candied chestnuts! The leaders are about to judge the Nameday. The winner will get 20 candied chestnuts. There will be a Nameday feast with games on the message board.
