Friday Flash 55 - Slimy Aphrodisiac - January 21, 2011


A would-be Cassanova,
finally got a date,
With the beauty of his dreams,
Who he hoped would be his mate.

He chose a fancy restaurant,
Bought the finest of champagnes,
To ensure the best of evenings,
He took the greatest pains.

The first course oysters did not thrill,
They made his date deathly ill.

  6. Ugh. Raw oysters. I wouldn't have been impressed, either. I'd rather eat clams.
    I wonder how raw oysters got their reputation as an aphrodisiac. Do you have any idea, Carmen?

  16. She should have smothered them in horseradish! It would have cleaned her clock very well. Or maybe a vodka shooter?
