And if you are watching your calories, don't have too many tarts.

A funny comment would be perfect here!

We will have to wait for one of Monty's witticisms.

Some might ask... is there a difference?

montyb on September 22nd, 2016
Yes, the difference is 33 seconds.

I thought it probably wasn't said by the original Ulysses.

"Sticks and stones are hard on bones aimed with angry art. Words can sting like anything but silence breaks the heart. "
Phyllis McGinley

Sticks and stones can break my phones, and texts you oft misspell. So call me names; emoji bad memes. Just please don't hurt my cell.

"It is a sad fact about our culture that a poet can earn much more money writing or talking about his art than he can by practicing it."
Wystan Hugh Auden


Barnabas on March 17th, 2012
There once was a poet named Hugh In dollars he earned so few But when he wrote or he spoke The poverty dam broke And like weeds his money just grew

montyb on April 3rd, 2012
Nice, Barnabas! I love a good limerick. Heck, I even like bad ones.

abra on September 21st, 2013
I'm always amazed that there was a time when people made money writing poetry. Nowadays, it would have to be set to a tune. Or are there bread winning poets out there still?

JD_1947 on December 4th, 2014
There once was a poet but you wouldn't know it, He wrote and spoke trying to show it, Though the dollars came in, He just couldn't win, No one read the lines that he writ . . .

There once was a man from Japan,
Whose poetry no one could scan.
When once asked about it,
He said, "I don't doubt it."
Because I always, positively try to get as many words into the last line as I possibly ... can.
