But Bishop Machado
Preferred avocado

Father O'Brian
gobbled his pie in
While Brother Sinclair
Seemed to thrive on plain air

What if they were combined? Just a thought. Thanks for dropping by my site, really appreciate it.

I have to agree with the Bishop. Nice one.

Bishop Machado and Cardinal Hayes,
Found upon their luncheon trays,
Sitting pretty on the dishes,
Sandwiches meeting both their wishes:
Half avocado and half mayonnaise,
Putting an end to their arguing ways.

Seamus said...

So...if combined would it be a papal salad?

What they all say,
they'd rather have cream
instead of whey! ;-)

But at his behest
Gave Billy Graham

You know, the topic of mayonnaise keeps coming up lately and it's kind of freaking me out. The other day there was a BIG to-do about Miracle Whip. You know, how it's not mayonnaise and it's vile and who in their right mind would eat it, blah blah, and then I said, very politely, well, it doesn't claim to be mayonnaise, it says salad dressing plain as day. And then that started ANOTHER big to-do about when you'd want salad dressing instead of mayonnaise and when you wouldn't want either.

Then, this other guy says, the ONLY way he eats egg salad sandwiches is if they have really good avocado on them, slightly salted. And someone else says, oh, that sounds FABULOUS, and what about avocado with deviled eggs? That would be PERFECT! But some people just aren't happy. Because this OTHER person says, have you seen Baconnaise? That's so DISGUSTING! And the first guy says, yeah but on a bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich I bet it would be great! And the next person says, yeah, and you know how deviled eggs sometimes have bacon bits on them, what if you made the deviled eggs with baconnaise?! It's all there, then, isn't it? Then The first person, who said they hated miracle whip said, deviled eggs with baconnaise?! It would be a MIRACLE of you could WHIP that up!!

After that, I changed my number blocked everyone's email.

Anyway, I loved your poem!
