Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I was angry with my brother
So he hit me in the head.
It wasn't that it hurt too much,
But Lordy! how it bled!
So I kicked him in the stomach
And he punched me in the mouth
His dinner came back up again
And my molars all "went south."
I gave him such a bloody nose
He gave the blackest eye
That ever was seen anywhere
He is that kind of guy.
I picked up a butcher knife
To poke him full of holes
And he grabbed a sawed-off shotgun
To make me food for moles.
But as I raised my knife to stab
The blade broke from the tang
And fell to the floor just at my feet
With a terrible awful clang.
He laughed at me! and raised his gun
And blew me all to hell
And that is why I'm still around
To tell this awful tale.
