Michael Edwards





There was a young lass called Meg

who mistakenly sat on an egg

but the weight of her bum

caused the shell to succumb

and the yolk ran all down her leg.

    Oh lol good write and pic M. In one church (men in suits, not robes), there were some back rooms. Some men were actually ironing clothes ready for the service. The cartoon is not so far-fetched! lol. Not heard of Meg Berles. Was it her?

      Her brother lives on a demolition site - Rub Berles - know him?

        Good one Michael, the yolk is on her!

          • dusk arising

            A mental picture suddenly flikkers
            of egg yolk all over her knickers
            and the yolk down the leg
            of lovely young Meg
            brought a race to everyone's tikkers
