PostSubject: Mavis's third leg   March 28th 2011, 7:54 am

Hello Jean, heard the latest?
Sit down, this is no ruse,
It really is the greatest,
You won't believe the news!

I said to Mrs Davis
Who couldn't quite take stock,
When I bumped into Mavis
I went straight into shock.

While living as a hermit,
Believe me Jean, I beg -
I don't know what to term it,
She grew another leg!

A miracle, whatever
Caused this strange thing to be?
Last night I said to Heather
What Mavis said to me;

She made the point it's handy,
Explaining gladly how
She's still extremely bandy
But no-one sees that now.

Oh God it's such a riddle,
It's on the right-hand side,
Her right leg's in the middle,
The left one sticks out wide.

Old Len is discontented,
In bed it stops their play,
Each time she has consented
The leg gets in the way.

Her bike's for sale and ready,
Though pedals kept her slim
It's hard to cycle steady
When you've an extra limb.

Yet she's a happy bunny,
She called the Daily Mail
Which guaranteed her money;
Sensations never fail.

She also said of late how
She whistles Jake the Peg,
Well Jean, you're up to date now
On Mavis's third leg.

I love it. One wonders how she buys shoes! must have to buy two pairs i guess.Now hang on if she bought three matching pairs she would have two full sets! yeah i cracked it. That is of course providing they are all the same size! oh this is getting far to complicated. Then what about trousers/jeans, does she have to pay more at the chiropodists, would she be allowed to play football? an extra leg would be usefull in a tackle. I think an exalt is in order here.

Very funny silverhenge, made me chuckle Laughing

I like the 'gossipy' style this is written in, made it even more amusing!

Thanks for sharing, ptp x
