Have You Sniffed A Dollar Bill Lately



It's impossible to hum with your nose plugged Don't try it you'll give yourself a hernia About two hundred babies are born every minute Guess there's not much doing in suburbia Dust under your bed is your own dead skin Unbelievable but that's what they say There are more nerve cells in the human brain Than there's stars in the Milky Way The water you drink has already been drunk By others, what a charming thought Donkeys kill more people than plane crashes That's not something I think of a lot A million dollars in one hundred dollar bills Weighs only about twenty-two pounds A disposable diaper holds seven pounds of pee That's too much information I've found 97% of money contains a trace of cocaine Have you sniffed your dollar bills of late The glue on Israeli stamps is certified kosher This leaves me in an overwrought state 10 million bricks are in the Empire State Building Masons surely had a heavy load That's it for now but there'll be more to come Keep an eye out for them down the road © Jack Ellison 2013

    What? Who gave those donkeys pilot liscenses, anyway?... It's bad enough dragons are flying around... I wonder if those onery cusses are causing any of those plane crashes? I'll have Grandpa Troll look into it... Everyone probably just thinks they're UFO's any way... LOL

    This is brilliant!! Perfectly humorous without trying to hard to be comical. Spot on rhyme and meter makes it easy to read on to the end. Fantastic write, I very much enjoyed reading this.
