People With Extra Long Necks



Now here's a funny sight, my friends People with extra long necks Much like giraffes you see at the zoo A really strange sight, by heck They drive convertibles for obvious reasons It sure ain't so great in the snow Their houses are rather tall and skinny How they sleep at night, heaven knows There's advantages to having an extra long neck Especially at a sporting event Till the people behind start throwing things Which there's gotta be a way to prevent There's a pill that's just come on the market To help shrink it down to size But the side effects can be disastrous It increases your bum and your thighs Now you can fit into a normal size car But you take up the whole front seat That's sure better than a giraffe like neck That's ridiculous, for the love of pete! © Jack Ellison 2012

    Instead of a pill... I just keep stretching my neck out more and more... I figure my house will be over flowing with pets eventually... or they'll chop it off eventually... Naw... I duck real good.... Like a turtle... LOL

    I think I saw someone with a long neck once. It did look different. That is a plus when driving though. You can see over the hood :). It's a gloomy, rainy day where I am at - a Starbucks' day. Make me want to go to Starbucks and have a frappuccino :) Enjoy your day!
