So, on top of everything else "they've" messed up, now this cracker Georgia peanut butter factory has messed up my peanut butter. Are we getting tired of this? Yet ...

Frisky Risky
by Ted L Glines

Please don't think me a foolish nutter
but thanks to that Georgia peanut butter
I'm such a happy lucky fella
munchin' my sandwich of salmonella.
Resolution - took a pledge
to live my life out on the edge
with Mac-attacks - holy moly
cheesy burgers - ole e-coli
smokin' cigs and drinkin' cokes
cancer - heart attacks - and strokes
findin' risky spots to play
take a tour in East L.A.
Feed me poisons - what the heck
I'm waitin' for my bail-out check
full of woes and many cares
watchin' Palin killin' bears
Moslems Buddhists Christians Jews
all sittin' on a burnin' fuse
everybody actin' bad
so no more laughing - let's be sad
I'm such a looney lucky fella
lovin' my sandwich of salmonella.

Would that be smooth salmonella or crunchy salmonella? With the way our friend, Ted, goes, I prefer to think crunchy. Is killin' yourself out on the edge a better quality of life--maybe so??...Jerry

I loove this and the brutal honesty of it...each day there are less and less things we can eat, drink, and do for one reason or another. Wouldn't it be great to turn on the news someday and hear the announcer say that drinking beer and smoking cigs will add twenty years to our lifes. lol

Great poem, my brother. Keep munching your sandwich of Salmonella
Reviewed by Georg Mateos 2/9/2009
Salmonella, I asked my butcher if he got any and he look at me like I was crazy and said nuthin'
Went to the fish monger (salmonella = little salmon?) and asked him if he had any and you won't believe how he cursed! ! !
Next time I will ask for that sandwich of your in a kosher deli.
