Mark Twain said he saw a Man get up at sunrise only to get bitten by a horse. Because he was trying to catch a worm. How absurd. Everyone knoes the worm turns. The man needs some Horse Liniment the Horse needs a Vet. The man also needs a new saw. He who rises inadvertently gets bitten by laughter.? Horse laugh. GeeHaw. Hey Belly. If he had a Ring Finger bite the horse swallowed a Carat. Iff in another area the Horse can be said to have gotten a little bite behind. Backbiter. Flea Bitten on the foot he ate the corns. But the real nasty bites where? on the calves. Cow hockey puck. What luck. They missed the mothers teats. When looking for the early bird to come to find the worm He found an angry Horse. Man bites dog Horse bites man. The worm has turned once more twain. When did the dog come into this.? Eye have seen Horses with very large teeth they can bite down into the bone. Give the dog a bone. Hand the man his Hand? oh no. The saw he needs is this now come to be or not to be the early chaser of the worm. We can only hope it was a Horse of a differant color was he still wearing his collar even a near sighted horse can tell the differance between an early bird a man and a worm. Iff he had a large overbite he might have thought the mans finger was a carrot. Beef stew. Getting up too early before sunrise can make a man surmise a Horse bite and a worm turned around.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
