side view theme: joke

A Fanie walked into a bar
And ended up bashing his nose -
Hear everyone laughing, ‘Ha, ha!’
As blood on his shirt-front there flows.

And next he sat down on a stool -
Deposited there by a hound -
Squelched up again, looking a fool,
With brown on his seat to be found.

To walk to the counter did strive;
And ordered a drink, then, to go;
The counter went ‘Two, three, four, five!’
The drink, though, quite rudely, said, ‘No!’

The barman drew cork nice and slow,
But, such illustration refused,
Fanie downed his wine with a low blow,
And so was of cheating accused.

Does picture I’ve drawn for you now,
In giving amusement succeed?
Just look at him: surely you’ll vow,
‘That is bloody Fanie, indeed!’

    Hahaha you’re so Fanie ;)


  3. This one needs the accent! Reminds me of Stephen Fry’s tweeting – he’s been in Cape Town for filming, and loved every minute…
