A Baboon With a Bassoon

I knew a baboon. He had a bassoon. The baboon tried to play the bassoon. The baboon who tried to play the bassoon could not hold a tune. The baboon with the bassoon could not hold a tune under the moon. The baboon tried to play the bassoon but could not hold a tune under the moon in June. The baboon who tried to play the bassoon without holding a tune under the moon in June knew a raccoon. This raccoon who knew the baboon who could not play the bassoon with a tune under the moon in June had a friend who was a loon. The loon told the raccoon who knew the baboon who tried to play the bassoon with a tune under the moon in June: Give it up you guys!

    Right on, Robert. I really dig the Seuss-esque feel of how you kept adding the details of the last line into the next(wot's that called?). Anyhow, a worthy win in Gwendolen's contest!

    A Dr. Seussical tongue twisting delight, Bob. The kids liked it as they tried to figure out what the next line would be..you scored a home run with this one. I loved it too! Way to go. Congrats. Gwendolen
