“Big Momma

Don’t Need No Chocolates,

To Weigh Down The Scales!”


Brother Edvard


Our dear old Ma Ed just called me,

She just got a package from Sweden;

I now think her dear old heart is broken,

And, it’s gonna take lots of time, to mend.


“I thought it was Edvard’s Valentine Gift,

I just couldn’t wait to open it, and look inside;

But instead of a card, flowers, or luscious chocolates,

It’s a photo of him, bashing Valentine’s Day, with pride.”


“Aw, Ma, you know what a jokester old Edvard is,

His real Valentine’s gift, is probably on the way;

And, what about that old Jersey Devil son of yours,

Did his fabulous Valentine’s Day gift, arrive today?”


“You’ve really got to be kidding me, Pee Wee,

Jersey Ed spends his time talkin to Rice Krispies;

He’s much too busy to think about his dear old Ma,

I guess I’m just a huge failure as a mother, Pee Wee.”


I just couldn’t stand to hear how blue dear old Ma was,

So I rushed out and bought her a card, roses, and candy;

And, I’ve Fed-Exed it all, over to her place, this mornin,

Signing it, “We All Love You, Ma; From Your Eds Three!”


I sure hope both of my Ed brothers read this,

I figure they each now owe me, about 33 bucks;

But just like our dear old Ma, this Valentine’s Day,

I figure they’ll ignore me, and I’m just sh.t out of luck.



©Valentine’s Day 2010, Brother Pee Wee Ed

...hmmm I think you need to coat both of those brothers of yours in sugar, Sugar Coated Brothers would be good! Poor Mamma what she does not know is best,,you are right!

Edvard is an ugly duck, and I don't believe the check is in the mail. Don't let him save it for your coffin either because when you wake up dead you can't spend it. I'm surprised to learn that Ma may be named Ed, too......Jerry

LOL!!!!!! Thank goodness, one of you thinks of your mother, poor old dear. Too old to spank, she'll have to think of a fitting punishment for these two....

I love the picture Ed, and the music goes right with it, and guess what, you made a Freudian slip, and the chocolates arrived here, you are in real trouble, cause, well I haven't got the heart, but let me tell you they were good, just kiddin, still with this postal service here, she might get them in ten years time, so you three better hide deep in the woods somewhere.

My check in on the mail PeeWee, and like Jersey Ed said, don't blame your brothers, we ain't the ones selling post stamps, although...that's an idea!
Now, being so rotten to your brothers all the past year we didn't expect less of you to go kissin' Ma's you know what...

EDvard Ole Brother
