FLY THE FRIENDLY SKIES
At an airline one night,
A guy approaches the check-in zone
And says, "Look, here's my flight.
I'm off to Zurich. Have one bag flown
To Amsterdam and the other to Paris."
The clerk smiles like a Cheshire cat.
"I'm sorry, sir. Not to embarrass
You, but we just can't do that."
The man leans over the counter to roar,
Almost too angry to speak
As the clerk gazes down at the floor
"Why not? You did it last week!"
A fat free meal
Has a lot of appeal
And it needn't be boring or dreary.
The truth is, in practice,
I'd rather eat cactus
However, I'll stand by my theory.
