    Time for a comedy break....


    I told this story
    to Mary:
    See Jane run
    Run Jane, run.
    She bought an icecream
    and ate it, just for fun.
    She also bought one
    for hungry Sally
    who lived in the lane
    across from the alley.
    She would have bought one
    for her friend ****...
    But he had so much icecream
    last night, he still felt sick...
    Mary told this story to John,
    and she said:
    See Jane run,
    run Jane, run
    she bought some icecream
    just for fun.
    She also bought two
    for greedy Sally
    who lived across from
    that ho house down the alley.
    She didn't think of buying any
    for her friend ****.
    He spent so much time at that ho
    house, it made her sick.
    John told this story to Sue,
    and he said:
    See Jane run,
    run Jane run.
    She bought some candy
    just for fun.
    She didn't even think
    to buy any for Sally
    who lived in that ho house
    down the alley.
    And all **** could do
    was spend his money on hoes.
    Was it worth every dime?
    Only he knows.
    And Sue told the story to Harry,
    and she said:
    See Jane run,
    run Jane run.
    She stole that candy
    just for fun.
    And since that gal Sally
    lives in the ho house for free,
    she can afford to buy her own
    candy, ya see?
    More steady than Ever Ready,
    **** might as well pay rent,
    since he already pays the madam
    every red cent.
    Then Harry told the story to me,
    and he said:
    Jane can't run,
    she can barely walk with a cane.
    What's more, her "hoing" husband ****
    drove the poor woman insane.
    She doesn't even remember Sally,
    who exclaimed that I was truly blessed.
    Cause after Harry met Sally, she said, "Playa,
    you got me walkin like Jane, I need some rest!"
    And ****, true to his name, feels little remorse
    for Jane, his wife.
    Since he struck a deal with the madam,
    big pimping has now become a way of life.
    Now, go ahead and laugh at this little ditty.
    Say a few wry remarks if you will.
    But you gotta admit that a story is never
    quite the same, once it's been thru the rumor mill.
    :laugh:

    Isn't that the truth.

    Rumor has it, Watzinaname, is a pseudonym.
