O'Tooles Apprentice

There was a plumber called Billy O'Toole Hired a dimwit who turned out quite a fool Soil pipe he didn't secure There was a stench of manure And all the downstairs became a cesspool. The owner came back and said" whats that smell? " By his face he was angry you could tell The dimwit ran for the door But then skidded on the floor And face down into raw sewage he fell.

Ha, hilarious Tom, I rather think Billy O’Toole’s the fool, Should have known better and gone by the rule. A dimwit never, Or rue forever, The day downstairs was awash with smelly pools.

Thank you very much Victor, some jobs I would not attempt, I always get workmen in who know what they're doing, I find it cheaper in the long run. Tom

Oh my goodness - Other than falling into the stuff, this actual thing happened to me!! It was horrendous! Kitchen fitter left for the night, forgot to reconnect the soil pipe - poo on my kitchen floor! Aghaghagh!! So thanks for reminding me of that Tom lol!

Hi Tom - Sounds as though Billy would be more suited to driving the muckspreader in a Farmer's' field. This is a certain contender in the comp. Best wishes - Bill
