Laugh With Jack



Every planet in our solar system Rotates in an anticlockwise direction Except Venus which insists on being different Always one has to be the exception About 75 acres of pizzas are downed In America every single day Probably chow down about an acre myself So I do my share wouldn't you say Our eyes are always the same size from birth However noses and ears get bigger Imagine if our footsies also kept growing Hard to do the Charleston I'd figure The disgusting cockroach is the fastest animal It covers about a meter a second That's faster than me when I need to go badly Running and holding my back end They say only rabbits and parrots can see Behind without turning their heads But mothers also seem to have that ability Try stealing some cookies before bed A goldfish's memory is about 3 seconds The same as me on a good day That's excellent as far as most seniors go Wish it was longer but what the hey Iguanas can stay under water 28 minutes Me too, but I'd miss all my friends Sure hope they'd visit me one last time Before off to the furnace I descend All bubble gum contains a bit of rubber For that bouncy bally effect Makes you able to leap over tall buildings But watch you don't break your neck © Jack Ellison 2013

    Ha ha ha, this is so funny Jack, it's nice to see you back into full force again my friend! Your humor was missed here within the Soup. You should make a contest where the contest entries would be all quatrains that are funny, that would be interesting! Although I do have to say I'm not that funny my friend, so I probably couldn't enter :( But there is a lot of talent here on the Soup and there are funny people here! Not to mention YOU!! This is a hilarious piece, such a grand work!!
