Why Cant You Articulate

After church a bunch of us decide to congregate Some spoke different dialects, so we got to translate There was also a new bride and groom to congratulate Did I mention that the preacher was quick to reinstate? A vampire flew through which we did not anticipate Was that a real vampire? An avid debate. A mummy danced through next with a wobbly gait. Where did she come from? I asked my immensely surprised date. No worries said my cousin, who was ready to masticate. His sweets were piled in a tower of sugar granulate. Wha….wha…wha….stuttered my shocked surprised Uncle Nate. As a devil appeared who said, “Why can’t you articulate?”

Reminds me of a bait shop in Puerto Vallarta which is called "Master Baits," and I did NOT make this up.

This was thought out when I was supposedly listening to an online seminar that lasted way too long!
