I've Been Turd Tagged???

Okay...I have to blame this on Brenda Bradshaw (that's right...that's Brenda Bradshaw with 2 Bs) Here are the rules for the turd tag:
1. Write a four line poem with the 1st and 3rd lines being "turd in a punch bowl"
2. Make lines 2 and 4 rhyme, using any topic.
3. Pass along to 3 unsuspecting punchdrinking bloggers and make them put it on their blog site.

Here's mine:

Bloggers, bloggers everywhere
Turd in the punch bowl
Blogging as without a care
Turd in the punch bowl

Where will all this blogging end?
Turd in the punch bowl
When everyone's my blogging friend?
Turd in the punch bowl

Maybe I should invite them over
Turd in the punch bowl
Soon there would be no one sober
Turd in the punch bowl

What a party it would be
Turd in the punch bowl
As everyone gets more punchy
Turd in the punch bowl

Would they see what's in the punch?
Turd in the punch bowl
Would they start to lose their lunch?
Turd in the punch bowl

Before they all begin to shout
"Turd in the punch bowl!!!"
I'd have to fish the damn thing out
Turd in the punch bowl

I'd reach right in (oh, how uncouth!)
Turd in the punch bowl
See, it's only a Baby Ruth!
Turd in the punch bowl

Okay, so what can I say?
I seem to have gotten carried away.

By the way...




You're IT!!!!

Karyn, Karyn, what am I going to do with you?

Oh, I don't mind the "turd tag," but your poem isn't consistent with your instructions.

You clearly state that we're to "write a poem with the 1st and 3rd lines being 'turd in a punch bowl'." Then you post your poem in which the 2nd and 4th lines are "turd in a punch bowl."

I don't know whether to follow you instructions, follow your example, or follow my instincts and not PUT that turd in there in the FIRST place!

Okay, Okay. I'll try it. Who's the genius who started THIS one, anyway?

(grumble, grumble)

Well, you know me...if there's a rule I'm gonna break it. I believe we call it in the biz "poetic license." You have my permission to write it however you want. It's sort of an "evolution" in the propagating process like natural selection. (Darwin would be so proud.) As to who started this? Who knows who the Adam and Eve of Turd Tag is. But you can thank Brenda Bradshaw for sending it to me, who then involved you in the whole dirty deed.

BTW...if you look even closer the instructions are "Turd in "a" punchbowl" I thought "the" sounded more familiar...

Do you people work??? I know Mom goes to a job, but it seems she writes about turds all day.

Men are poop
Turds in a punch bowl
They are full of toot
Turds in a punch bowl

This is all I gots in me tonight. And yes I know I'm supposed to post on my blog, but I refuse to put poems of turds, even if they are about men.

Thanks for playing along, Katy. Wouldn't want you to stress yourself out too much.

(Maybe someday you'll find a man who isn't such a turd.)

You can thank me for the turd tag as I was the one who tagged Brenda on my blog.
