Inquiring Minds II

If you give a little weasel, a nice new painting easel and a jerry can of diesel, and you tell him he will freeze - will he retire to paint a fire or burn the easel with the diesel and bake a nice brie cheese? If a ferret and parrot have imbibed a bit of claret, and you give the first a carrot, and the second diamond carats, would they see things as disparate, finding merit in the carrot, or would the parrot try to wear it, unaware of its great peril, and turn the ferret feral?

If you turn to Kyser as your main advisor, will you turn out wiser -- or just spread fertilizer? Ho, ho! ~ Pear A. Liser

Fertilizer, for sure! Haha, good to hear from you, Gershon.

Great tongue twisters…lol. Don’t you just wish that politicians talked like that. It would be so entertaining!

I keep thinking I'm going to write a nursery rhyme for Eve's contest, but they never end up seeming appropriate. Fun though, thanks!
