What rhymes with Twinkie?May 11, 2012 @ 11:36 am
Happy Friday. Happy glorious weekend. I know you've been busy all week long, so I wrote up the news of this week for you in one little poem:
Obama came to the Paramount
And we filled up his bank account.
He also said, "Gay marriage: yes!"
('Cause Biden went on "Meet the Press.")
Hostess, maker of the Twinkie,
Just went bust. Now that is stinky:
The maker of Wonder Bread is toast.
Thomas Kinkade overdosed....
Maurice Sendak, au revoir.
He's gone to Where the Wild Things Are.
Was not immune.
Nor Goober Pyle,
Who made us smile,
And Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys --
Thank you for the righteous noise
Hey Al Qaeda, get a plot!
Your bombs sure don't explode a lot,
Thanks to our undercover work.
Romney was a high school jerk.
Price of oil is backing off.
Children here have whooping cough.
Morgan Chase lost tons of money.
I don't care, because it's sunny.
And it's Friday. And it's warm.
Through the weekend: perfect storm.
Enjoy the days, however you choose.
