Never Flush a…
(Originally posted on the website Continuum…)
Well, the toilet went crazy
The plumber he says
Never flush a tampoon!
This great information
Cost me half a week’s pay
And the toilet blew up
Later on the next day-ay-eee-ay
Blew up the next day
Lyrics from “Flakes” by Frank Zappa
The first human voice I heard this morning came floating down the hallway with the words:
“Dad! The toilet’s overflowing!!!!”
First, I freaked and ran around looking for towels.
Second, I cursed. Or maybe that was first.
Third, I had a good laugh over it all when Zappa’s lyrics came to mind.
The moral… “Don’t cry over spilt *milk*.”
