Yawning Is Contagious



Yawning is certainly contagious Others can't help yawning too It even happens with chimpanzees Try it next time you're at the zoo Yawn while attending a party Many will follow your lead The host can signal the party's over By yawning, it's time to leave Yawning can also be useful Groom signals the sleep he lacks He's saying the wedding's over To get his new bride in the sack They happen when you're nervous You need to let go a big fart At a very important office meeting One that soars right off the chart Ever notice how silly we look Our faces get all screwed up We look like we're giving birth to a baby Or picking up poop from a pup So every time you yawn now Remember these images I've sent you You surely will to try to stifle it Remembering the chimps in the zoo! © Jack Ellison

    Yes...course I still love you!!!! :) I've been rather negligent recently as well! Don't worry!!! Hope the move goes smoothly. Do take care of yourself...yes...yawning will take on a different meaning from now on!!!! ;)

    Good morning Jack!... Sooo glad to have you back. My Hubby has flipingitus... He's waiting for 13-13-13... There will be no thirteenth month... Duh?... Maybe he just needs a good yawn or fart to clear his head... LOL... Not to worry... The kids got back from college and the noise kept him up... The kids are beginning to simmer down now... They're back to work and needing their own sleep... That's kids for you...
