Totally Absurd



Time for some more sillies “D'ya know what burns my ass? A flame about THIS high!” Heard it before?, I ask Got about a million of 'em Stay tuned, here's some I chose “If a cow laughs really hard Does milk come out it's nose”? “Do vegetarians eat animal crackers”? “Is it good if a vacuum sucks”? Did I just hear you say groaners That's why I'm paid the big bucks! “Do bald men wash their heads With bar soap or shampoo”? Good question, never thought about it Shinola is what they should use! “Does a mailman deliver his own mail”? Do we actually still have mailmen? “Why say 'bye bye' but not 'hi hi”? Never thought of it, dear friends “If feathers tickle us human beans Do feathers tickle birds”? “Do deer only cross at those yellow signs”? Now that is totally absurd! © Jack Ellison 2013

    “Do bald men wash their heads With bar soap or shampoo”? Shakespeare said that God created certain heads perfect on the rest he planted hair on them, (Ladies are excluded)! HA-HA! Since I am bold and have nothing to... hide here is the answer: Use both and for a good reason. First, you use soap bar to clean the surface and then shampoo to make it shine! Ha-ha! Enjoyed your poem! For the rest of the question I HAVE NO IDEA!

    We're in a state of giggles! Your funny side is showing. Dragon appreciates your type of Yee Haw!... The penguins are falling over like bowling pins. They're laughing so hard... The Gutter Frogs are hopping around like crazy... Sometime last night Dragon took their little homes from the roof... to a high shelf in his cave. He has to quit collecting critters! The cave is getting crowded. Dragon was worried they'd get cold... The penguins can't wait for the snow... Naw! We're not strange... LOL
