: : I have a book of children's jokes, etc., at home that has a couple of versions of this. I can post it this evening.
: I don't know where this is from, but it range a bell with me too. I found the following on a web-page:
: Ladies & Jellyspoons...
: I stand before you to go behind you
: To tell you something I know nothing about.
: This Thursday, which is Good Friday,
: There will be a mothers' meeting to which only fathers are invited.
: Wear your best clothes if you haven't any,
: And if you can come, please stay at home.
: Admission is free, pay at the door.
: Grab a chair and sit on the floor.
: It doesn't matter where you sit,
: The man in the gallery is sure to spit.
: Our next meeting is about the four corners of the round table.
: Thank me!
: And similarly, another apparently old-fashioned piece of absurb verse that again rings faint chords for me:-
: One bright day in the middle of the night,
: Two dead boys got up to fight.
: Back to back they faced each other,
: Drew their swords and shot each other.
: When the deaf policeman heard the noise,
: Up he came and shot the two dead boys.
: If you don't believe this lie is true,
: Ask the blind man - he saw it too!
Ladles and Jellyspoons!
