World’s Shortest Fairy Tale July 8, 2009

Posted by Rambling Man in Poetry & Humor.

Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl ‘Will you marry me?’

The girl said, ‘NO!’

And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and went fishing and hunting and played golf a lot and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

The End

A dinner lady faces the sack from a school in Essex, for telling parents the full details about an attack on their daughter.  The kid was tied up with a rope and beaten about the legs and arms in a disgraceful bullying incident !

The school wrote (!) to the parents telling them about the attack but excluded some details … I mean first of all, why would you just write and not hop straight in a car and drive the poor kid home, via a cop shop to scare the shite out of the perpetrators !?

Anyway, now this dinner lady is facing the sack because she discussed a school matter outside – even though she told the parents of the bullied child concerned !

This world is gone PC, stone mad !!

My Only Lions Test

by the Rambling Man

Last night I dreamed a lovely dream, like I’ve never dreamed before
I dreamed I was a Lion and touched down the winning score
their backline was a little flat, plain for all to see
As I chased down the grubber kick by the girl who makes the tea

I cross and dived, just left of post and smothered the rugby ball
three lads dived too, all red clad men, waiting for the call
the referee he raised his hand and we were in the lead
twas only then I realised, to pee I had a need !

I walked past Shane Williams (!), who was lining up the kick
and I remember thinking, Jaysis O’Gara must be sick
and then in that dreamlike way, the pitch was nowhere to be seen
I had obviously found the toilet, just what could it mean ?

Then the rest of the team were heading home and making for the bus
I was taking their congratulations, amidst the winning fuss
Darren Clarke shook my hand, for he had played scrum half
and the man that runs our golf shop, also joined the laugh

At last as I began to wake, I realised I was going mad
Bull Hayes was walking round my room, looking really sad
the local man who delivers milk had just blocked his clearance down
and was charging over the line again, sliding on the ground
the milkman wore a dark green shirt, shattering all our hope
and the Lions had lost my only test. I dream like such a dope !
