    EGGS RATED
    These eggs
    Are eggscellent.
    I'm not eggsaggerating.
    You can tell by my eggspression
    They're eggceptional--
    Eggstra fluffy,
    Eggstremely tasty,
    Cooked eggsactly right
    By an eggspert
    With lots of eggsperience.
    Now I'll eggsamine the bill....
    Ooh--much more eggspensive
    Than I eggspected.
    I gotta get out of here.
    Where's the eggxit?
    From,
    Falling Up
    Copyright 1996 by Shel Silverstein

    EGGS-actly! I love Shel's work. I quote him often. Especially when the grandchildren do something I didn't want done in the name of 'helping Grandma'.

    From Agatha Fry who made a pie---
    "--- Some kind of help is the kind of help that helping's all about,
    And some kind of help is the kind of help we all can do without."

    I love Shel Silverstein. I just received Everything On It for Christmas. He's so creative - It's almost scary to think how his mind must work [​IMG]
