Farley Versus Swayze

Remember when fat boy Chris Farley
Competed against Patrick Swayze
On Saturday Night Live
Judges couldn’t decide
Picking one dancer made them crazy

In the end it’s Swayze who prevailed
Farley’s dancing career was curtailed
When he danced, his belly
Shook like tubs of jelly
As an erotic dancer he failed

After a great deal of strong debate
The judges gave it to Farley straight
“You’re not as good looking,
It’s Patrick we’re booking,
He dances best and you’re no lightweight.”



There was an old episode of Saturday Night Live where Chris Farley and Patrick 
Swayze competed to see if they could make an all-male dance team.  It was 
hilarious watching Farley trying to dance.
Entry for Miranda Lambert’s “burlesque” contest

    Funny Stuff! I had the chance to meet both of these very talented men.( I used to do Grand Openings for big theme Restaurant in Orlando) Both were very well loved. I have some great memories of those two separate nights, one in Indianapolis (Farley), the other in Myrtle Beach S.C. This little poem took me way back! Thanks! And thank you for encouraging me with my poetry! ~JS Lambert

    It's too bad that both of these great actors are gone now, Diane. The dance competition episode was very funny and they show it on the "best of Saturday Night Life" programs. Wishing you success in Randa's contest! Love, Carolyn
