I'm too Sexy for my Shirt


Chrysippus crow
saved up his loot,
and bought hisself
a brand new suit.

A slave to fashion,
this dandy fella
found one that came
with a matching umbrella.

LOL, a wonderful illustration that reminds me of an old line from "The Honeymooners" TV show. Ed Norton asks Ralph, "how can anybody so round be so square?"

Have you ever seen a fat man in a thong? It's not funny. It's an abomination against God and Nature.
