How about this bit of logic, my friend
If people from Poland are called Poles
What would you call people from Holland?
Methinks they might be called Holes
When taking a picture of a piece of cheese
What word do you ask it to say?
Okay, I'm aware that cheese doesn't talk
Where's your sense of the sillies today?
Do you think infants enjoy their infancy
As much as adults enjoy adultery?
Probably not I would hazard a guess
Adultery can make you go loopy!
“I am” is the shortest sentence there is
Could it be, “I do” is the longest?
Why is the man who invests your money
Called a broker, apropos I guess!
Last night I played a blank tape full blast
The mime next door went berserk
Coz mimes can only hear silent sounds
Bet you never heard this strange quirk!
