HAHAHAHA! This whole post made mom LOL!

Poor O'Mally...maybe next time. Perhaps if she focused more on the metaphor and was a bit less literal, then those poetry geeks might "get" her.

Mom is very happy that you used the vidyuh she took (hahaha...and she just likes to say VIDYUH).


Pee S. Mom wants to know if your mom got a jangly envelope from us in the mail????

Stubby said...

Hi Hank! I can't believe you let O'Mally clean your ears - yuk! I sure hope you don't let her clean your face too because you just don't know where her tongue has been.

That truly sucks, tell them they don't recognize top shelf talent when they read it!

Apollo said...

Sorry to hear bout O'Mally! Sounds like those people need their anal glands expressed!

Too Cute Pugs said...

Tell O'Mally that many great writers were turned down a ton of times before they hit it big.

And oh, our ears could use a good cleaning. What's O'Mally's appointment book like next week?

Pug love from,

Hank thanks for visiting Stumpy's blog!

I thought Ms. O'Malley's poetry was perfectly acceptable and the fact that she keeps your ear clean makes her a keeper for sure!
