Things You Might Not Know



3 of every 4 creatures on earth Are insects, now you know Why hordes of damn mosquitoes Pester and bug you so They sow their seeds of mayhem As we sit in the summer sun Being annoyed by these tiny bugs Till finally we get up and run After a house fly eats its food It regurgitates and eats it once more Imagine if we re-ate our meat balls That's something I would abhor Americans eat 12 billion bananas Every year, no wonder at times We get the urge to hang from trees Or scratch our protruding behinds Each one of us uses approximately Fifty-seven sheets of bum wipe Each and every day of our existence We're killing our trees, my gripe Maybe instead, use toilet paper With a hole right in the centre We could use it over and over again Washing up is a disease preventer In 32 years there are approximately One billion seconds of time Each one of them is so very precious Waisting one is a downright crime I've taken on the task of educating you With these obscure, interesting facts A service I provide to my P-Soup friends Love the accolades I keep getting back! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Again... a great way to make education more fun, with rhyme! Though I don't think I will stoop to your "hole in toilet paper" plan... I'm afraid I'm a bit too squeamish for that!

    Stay tuned... got some more coming! The "hole in toilet paper" is a personal choice. No need to explain! LOL
