Believe It, It's All True



In France back in the middle ages The courts ordered the execution of a cow How come you're probably asking Sat on a farmer and squished him that's how Larry Lewis ran the 100 yard dash Setting a record at 101 years old A mortician happened to be standing by Carted him off to his funeral parlour I'm told An oak tree emits during one full season 30,000 gallons of moisture Much like this overweight lady I know She perspires much more than that I'm sure “Was it Eliot's toilet I saw?” spelled backwards Is “Was it Eliot's toilet I saw?” Bet you weren't aware of this wee tidbit It leaves most people in awe About 3000 years ago, Egyptians died By the time they were thirty years old Were forced to write their wills at age three Just in case they caught a bad cold Chocolate, sex and laughter are factors That keeping the brain sound and healthy Larceny, deceit, thievery and embezzlement Are excellent ways to keep you wealthy Hedgehog's hearts beat 300 times a minute Like mine when I see a naked woman Now no need to get all prissy and stuff I'm a normal and healthy REAL MAN! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Poor Elliot... He's probably turning red with embarrassment, after you wrote that one... I bet E.T. phoned home to tell about that one!... LOL
