Elastic stretches bit by bit, around your thick dimension Lets you wiggle, if you're pudgy, from too much fudge retention A second portion...now, you're ecstatic....Alas, you've licked the kettle! Should I tattle or meddle much, or call for intervention? Thus, your middle may need attention, is it a time for fudge redemption? I hope you won't judge my good intentions, or hold a grudge.... OOPS! Caught by chance, I wear stretch pants!! Your fudge tastes quite fantastic!!

    You've licked it down to the last taste. It don't seem right, it all goes to your waste. But if we are a double dipper, we better be sure to have a strong zipper. Enjoyed and congrats. :)
