Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Alas, the myopic chef so benighted
And the restaurant manager was far from delighted
When the strawberry tart with hand-stirred custard
Was served by mistake with strong Dijon mustard

Your verse and worse always bring a smile. I wonder if you ever get your inspiration from real events? When I worked at a tea room I almost served some mislabeled cheese sauce on top of a pie instead of the English Custard. A near miss thankfully.

That must have been quite an experience!
The recipient must have done a merry dance!

He! he! Can't you just taste that!

This one is very good and will stir a rash of mishaps memories, like the time I made chocolate truffles and rolled them in what I thought was cocoa, but was actually gravy powder.

I swear I did not buy it so how it got into my larder remains another mystery firmly placed at the door of Old Nick.
