Break for a Giggle

The other night I was reading to the boys before bed, and I read this poem (In "The New Kid on the Block" by Jack Prelutsky). The boys started giggling early, and by the time I read the punchline they were both falling over with laughter. It was a highlight of my day!!

Louder Than a Clap of Thunder!
by Jack Prelutsky

Louder than a clap of thunder,
louder than an eagle screams,
louder than a dragon blunders,
or a dozen football teams,
louder than a four-alarmer,
or a rushing waterfall,
louder than a knight in armor
jumping from a ten-foot wall.

Louder than an earthquake rumbles,
louder than a tidal wave,
louder than an ogre grumbles,
as he stumbles through his cave,
louder than stampeding cattle,
louder than a cannon roars,
louder than a giant's rattle,
that's how loud my father SNORES!

I wish someone wrote a poem about my snoring. It would make me feel better about it.

Hey thanks for putting the "a few clowns short" link up on your blog. I added you to my blog roll/list.

@ Five Bears: ~snort!~

@ lisleman: Hey! Thanks for stopping by again! And thanks for linking back. I'll refrain from competing in the next quiz, if you'd like. . . ;) But I'll watch out for it in any case, because they are fun to puzzle out. :)
