Useless Info

An army of mites reside in our lashes
With mouths and tiny claws
Along the way during human evolution
This surely must be a flaw

Astronauts strangely can't burp in space
What kind of useless dribble is that
A feline can have over a hundred kittens
Now that's one pooped out cat

Some atheists put up Christmas trees
An identity crisis for sure
A cow can poop up to four tons a year
That's sure a big batch of manure

A woman once had sixty-nine children
Talk about barefoot and pregnant
With a dirty big bunch of kiddies like that
She could hold her own beauty pageant

Nose prints are used to identify dogs
Imagine if used them for humans
Especially during the influenza season
There'd be snot all over the policeman

The tallest people in the world are the Dutch
Must always duck around windmills
While kissing most tilt their head to the right
But there's some who rub noses still

The salary of Toto in “The Wizard Of Oz”
Was a hundred twenty dollars a week
That's a hundred and twenty more than me
Since retiring my new job is sleep

    The tallest people in the world are the Dutch? I always thought members of the Watusi tribe in Africa were all at least seven feet tall. Some local sports broadcasters didn't know the meaning of "dry dock". Apparently, they were not in the navy. Good write Jack.
