Iambic Pentamiter – wamiter

You know that the Mamas really need to get out more, when your friend leaves you a voice mail simply stating:

“A hog and a frog cavort in the bog. BUT NOT THE HIPPOPOTAMUS.”

And without missing a beat, you immediately call back and leave the following voice mail:

“A cat and two rats are trying on hats. BUT NOT THE HIPPOPOTAMUS!!”

And you don’t see anything wrong with this.

I hate that book. I feel so bad for the armadillo at the end. :-(

Didn’t we used to leave comments about getting trashed and flashing our boobs and stuff? Seriously.

That hippo is a big whore I heard.

But do Rhinoceroses REALLY snort and snuff?

(A little shocked I am officially de-lurking on Sandra Boynton’s behalf)

Hey now, K, I may have put on some weight with the baby and all, but that’s no reason to call me a big ol’ hippo whore!

There should have been a “;-)” at the end of that last comment.

Who shat in my hat? Not the hippopotamus, I’m guessing.

I’m not a mama, and don’t see anything wrong with this. Kinda makes me want to get out to a bookstore and find one of the few books I missed out on reading ten thousand times to my little sibs.
