Proper mounted sheep
a joy to behold even if
you have to inflate

OK Richard... you and the pigs have the first shot. 8^)

Inflatable ewe

of dirty deeds done with sheep

Shorn of fur, he chews
my bare leg has no more skin
nude rodent must die

For an instant of fly-fish-list fame,
with lines that grow more-and-more lame,
as though gripped with fever
we defame the poor beaver,
and cannot stop playing this game.

Alas, poor beaver! I knew him well.
A pity that to such depths he fell.
Have we lads no shame?
Use no more his name,
Lest we stand accused of his death knell.

Once a mere murmur, now a loud wail
from hundreds of addicts to fly-fish e-mail.
The plea, oh so cogent:
enough with the rodent!
Oh, please spare us the beaver de-tails.

With the fervent hope that I've offended many (I myself stand in awe of such gruesome creation),

When the fur skins drop from the trees in the Fall,
your rake and you will have a ball!
You'll bag the rakings so nice and neat,
but not for collection in the street.

Man, oh, man. And to think I sat on my hands today and stayed completely out of this thread. Until now. Oh, when will these young upstarts learn?? 8^)

While strolling his Rottweiler pooch
to the corner to pick up some hootch
yon Lassie came over,
said "Rottie, bend over
and I'll give your male doghood a smooch"

But Griffen was not too amused
at having his doghood perused
by a poorly-bred mutt
so he got off his butt
and he bit her 'til she felt abused.

Sorry, Tyson; I was out of town earlier in the week...

When walking your rott on the street,
And an unleashed dog you should meet.
Tell the owner beware,
As you really do care,
What your dog chooses to eat!

When walking your dog,
Carry a trowel, a baggie,
And some bail money. Ok, Tyson? Sorry it's late...

There is no FF content below. Nothing tasteful or appropriate either, for that matter. 8^)

Hiner market tip:
buy Vaseline stock today
lest you get his goat
