I’m glad you liked the Toby Mug;
it’s nice to know that’s where your dentures slept
but what a shame the handle came unstuck.
It’s kinda funny – your false teeth bit the rug;
no, you’re right – Doulton is inept
and Waldo buried your teeth? – the naughty pup.

That explains the scattered holes sans shrubs
and why the garden looks a bit unkempt.
Your new teeth give you ulcers on the gums?
Let me look inside – I’ll eye the rub
um… d’you want a hug?

    It is so humorous! Should the naughty puppy be chastised more for this mishap or the one who presented the mug with the handle loose? (Report) Reply

    Hello Diane, this sounds so much like Kath and Kim's house...my empathy is oozing for the owners of these dentures. I hope you had sympathy and not for Waldo. (Report) Reply

    Entropy and compassion, loosely veiled as sarcasm will not save us, from aging's ever dismantling chasm. Great stuff. (Report) Reply
