Two Dumb Poems

Creamy Potato Salad Recipe -

Potato Salad


My potato salad is pretty bland

but I make it all by hand.

And, it isn’t my fault

That my mom never taught me to use salt.

No onions, spices or flavor of any kind

the product of an uninspired mind.

But, I find all your complaints invalid

so let me enjoy my potato salid.


Common Cuttlefish - New England Aquarium



The cuttlefish is a cephalopod

Who feels that he’s a gift from God

A cuttlefish is a lot like a squid

Only the cuttle moves more slowly than it ever did

His brain to mass ratio is the highest ever,

so, for an invertebrate, he’s awfully clever

They also have three hearts

eight arms, two eyes and some inky parts

Finally, the cuttlefish

can turn any color that it might wish

Although it makes me a little sad

they never turn to a tartan plad…

    1. A trend towards throwing up?

      Burger King tried using a black bun for Halloween last year and it did not go well. I’d imagine black potato salad would educe the same reaction.
