T’was during World War II,
I had a red balloon.
It was much like a fish,
And it glowed as the moon.
I also had a suit
With pom-poms on each boot.
It had a robot pup;
The pup could play the flute.
I had a bottle too,
That, when I pulled the ring,
It made a little “Pop!”,
And out came lots of string.
But all these things are gone;
I do not have them now.
For during World War II,
My stuff just went, “Ka-pow!”
I made this corny little poem as a school assignment, and got dad to LOL.
At a bridal shower ,my mom and I went to on saturday,it started snowing. Of course we didn’t find out until one of my freinds, with dark brown hair, went out side. By the next morning there was snow all over. A day later there was ice on the ground and roads. Luckily no one got hurt. Snows fun, but not right now. I hope it won’t countinue.
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
Be responsible for yourself!
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. All the networks show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast.
How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Kermit the Frog appears on a talk show with the grasshopper, and everybody cries when they sing, “It’s Not Easy Being Green.”
A political activist stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, “We shall overcome.” He then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper’s sake.
Politicians exclaim in an interview on a different talk show that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity and Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government.
A senator gets their old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a defamation suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of federal judges that the President appointed from a list of single-parent welfare recipients.
The ant loses the case.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around him because he doesn’t maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow. The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.
Be careful how you vote.
The guys over at Websurity present you with Uncomfortable Questions: Was The Death Star Attack An Inside Job? There isn’t a better way to communicate to the Entertainment Generation just how absurd the conspiracies surrounding 9/11 are than this.
Is this a cool company, or what? Ever since we shipped Windows Vista, these logoed cans of Talking Rain have been in the soda frig.
FYI – I just installed the Postie plugin for WordPress and created the above post from my RAZR as an MMS message!! This should make it real easy for me to start putting pictures of the kids and stuff up on a more regular basis
