Howard the Ham and Lady Peach

You could always see him riding
down the street on his small bicycle.
His name was Howard the ham.
He must have been 6 ft 5 inches tall but
his bicycle was only 2 and a half feet high. It
was quite a funny sight because 
Howard always dressed so properly
with smart coats and jackets, brim
hats, smartly colored scarves and bow
ties sometimes smoking a pipe or
cigar as he beetled along. This was
very unusual for a ham. Howard
was very lonely, he wanted to find
a wife. Luckily one day he found
Lady Peach skate boarding down
Howl St. She was quite hefty. He 
almost ran her over he was so excited. 
Well they stopped and talked and we
all know how the story goes the ham
and the peach were married next Spring.
