Flash 55 Friday & Magpie 43 - Whose Bright Idea, Was This? - December 3, 2010





Flash 55 Friday & Magpie 43
Whose Bright Idea, Was This?  - December 3, 2010

Let's drive up to the lake house,
For a wintery holiday!
We'll start a roaring fire,
And, somehow, find our sleigh.

We'll make a hearty dinner,
And drink hot buttered rum,   
We were pleased with our plan,
But now we're feeling glum. 

When Ashley heard the growling bears,
She broke her leg on snowy stairs!

  2. That's a great punchline! Well, actually horrible news. But, it was a beautiful build up to the bad news.
