Doggerel du jour

Oh, and before I forget: regular readers of this journal may recall that when I'm engaged in activities that don't require a lot of focus (exercising, gardening, showering), my mind tends to wander and I'll find myself fabricating silly songs or poems.

During tonight's bike ride, I found myself using as inspiration the reaction that my ratgirls had to being fed Krusty-O's this morning. One of the 7-Elevens that've been turned into Kwik-E-Marts to promote the Simpsons Movie is down by work, and has a panoply of rebranded products available. I picked up a box of Krusty-O's, which, as far as I can tell, are basically Froot Loops.

Curious Jennifer peeks outPart of this nutritious breakfast!

The rats love them. No, I mean really love them. It's like rat crack. And it was so adorable watching them clutch the colorful little torii in their paws while they nibbled away. So with that image in my head from this morning, and my muscles aching as I climbed the hills, my muse struck. Without further ado:


O tiny rat, with Krusty-O
I've read the box, and thus I know
That these are awfully bad for you
...but it's so cute, the way you chew

I blame the low blood sugar. I was seriously bonking towards the end of that ride (and bonking in the glycemic sense, not the fun sense).

(What is up with all the double entendres in cycling, anyway? Pumps? Multi-tools? Lube? Chains? BONKING??? Must be the influence of all that Spandex.)

You OPENED your Krusty-O's!?!? So much for the collectible value! I'm keeping mine "mint in box". :)

(Oh, and ANYTHING can be used as a double-entendre if you say it right... I mean, think about "Krusty-O" for a minute... Or "mint in box"... :)
