‘All Mod Cons’ side view theme:


Remember when the Mod-est Con

Was toilet one could sit upon,

And had a snazzy little bowl

Instead of one great gaping hole?


All mod CONS sentenced in this age

Have recently come to the stage

Where comforts of their jail cells are

Much better than their homes, by far.


Another type of modern con:

Nigerians, the web upon;

Beware the prize they say you’ve won –

That’s how their modern cons are done!


All mod cons used to be enough

With basic bathroom, kitchen, stuff –

But now you see a ja-cuz-zi,

Plus plasma-screen-type large TV!

    Excellent take on the theme ~ some bathroom TVs are nicer than the one we have in our living room.
