The Useful Gadget
The bride was slightly the-worse-for-wear,
with flowers wilting, in her newly-styled hair.
She’d been led astray by the chief bridesmaid,
who’d been adding gin to her plain lemonade.
After the best man’s speech was done,
the bride got up shakily, all on her own.
She started to speak, intending to thank
her parents, sister, and big brother, Frank.
But the words came out slurring, and round the wrong way
(though the guests knew what she had MEANT to say).
When it came to the parents, she couldn’t ignore
A coffee percolator, from her mother-in-law.
“To my in-laws” she said, “a special ‘thank you’…
…for helping to put on this fabulous ‘do’…
…and as well as providing the venue to cater,
…they also supplied my perky copulator!”
Hope this doesn’t offend anyone. Apologies in advance.
