Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Professor Turner
Lit the bunsen burner
But the angle of his pose
Meant that he singed his nose

Not only do these crack me up, they stick in my head all day, and I repeat them in my mind like a lyrics to a song while I clean, do the dishes, walk the dogs...

LOL!

I'v been away, so I just realized you named my blog in your post of the day on the 8th. Thank you very much, that's a clever and generous idea. I like your blog a lot, I especially like the photos. Thanks again.

I can smell the singeing
And here the whinging
Messing with a tilted burner
A soar nose will earn ya!

Eddie Bluelights said...

He ran like mad for some soothing water
To cool his red hot hurting snorter
And instead of feeling mildly placid
He'd made it worse with sulphuric acid
He said, "Quick someone turn on the tap
I've had a nasty awful mishap!
Then he felt coming a big sneeze
And off his head did his hooter breeze.

So he had to take more care
As good teachers are rare!
