Fishes And Deers


The problem with fish and deer

Is you never know how many are near.



Is there anything more embarrassin’
Than ordering deer meat instead of venison?

double note: I can always find snowmen. You are not safe from poetry. You’ve been warned. You can blame Ogden Nash.


notes to myself #172

You don’t really get a 5 o’clock shadow … I think it has something to do with daylight savings maybe.

  1. What an odd little poem. True but odd.

  2. And it rhymes! Kind of like Little snowman and snowball boy… or whatever. By the way, deer meat is better than venison.

  3. I haven’t eaten deer meat .

  4. what does the sign say? the little one on the right looks a little mean.

  5. It’s more embarrassing ordering deer meat instead of fish. Have you ever gone into a fish shop & ordered $2 worth of chips & 2 battered pieces of deer.
    The picture is out of sync with the weird poem too, just sayin’

  6. What about Dishes & Fears???

    The problem with Dishes & Fears
    Is that you get scared if you open the crockery cupboard.

    But it doesn’t rhyme very well…

  7. Thanks for all the comments!

    S. Le: I thought that one up while driving in my head. hee hee!

    Donald Diddams: I always ask for venison and deer meat at restaurants, but they never have both of them for some reason.

    Tasneem R: it tastes like venison. hee hee!

    sweetiegirlz: the sign is just advertising “soba, udon, zenzai (??), oden, hot coffee, sake, and beer“.

    Tony: there are laws against battering fish some places.
    I thought about “Dishes and Feers“, but then thought I’d play this one straight.
    … I don’t know what that means.
