    Pittsburghese lesson:
    “You’re a fool” and “You are full”
    Are pronounced the same way.

  3. The late stand-up comic George Carlin
    used to note that his profession
    was formerly called “Fool.”

  4. John Armstrong says:

    There’s not much difference
    Between a tool and a fool
    But a tool is a schmuck
    And a fool is cool

  5. Judith H. Block says:

    Make me laugh- I’ve had enough tears
    My smiles are not what they appear.
    Am I now a fool for love?
    Does this fit me like a glove?
    Don’t want my joy to disappear.

  6. Judith H. Block says:

    Make me laugh tonight.
    Am I fool for your love?
    Only you will know.

  7. Judith H. Block says:

    Please don’t fool with me…
    My bruised heart can’t take the pain
    Of more deception.

  8. Fish eaters, otters
    swim aptly, with smooth brown fur,
    Unique creature there.
    With long and black fur,
    Others are water proof guys
    that haunt fish for food.
    Enemy to fish,
    Giant and fast under the sea,
    Otters are selfish.

  9. what lovely funnies,
    happy new year,
    smile a ton.

    please share your haiku with our friend too.

    Not sure I’m ready.
    What will I write come April
    If I use “fool” now?

  11. Sue Dulley says:

    You’re right if you think I’m a fool.
    I was the class clown at my school
    Or wanted to be,
    But that just wasn’t “me”,
    So I’m serious now, as a rule.

  12. Sue Dulley says:

    On Foolers:
    Although it might help to keep cool
    (One layer will heat less than two’ll)
    A true shirt and sweater
    Are honestly better
    Than one of those tops meant to fool.

    Skipping Love

    The man who finds love in this life
    is rich beyond compare
    Now all he needs is a good wife
    though one of those is rare

    As M-Sixteens love singing blues
    ginger sucks as honey
    And booze won’t give you any clues
    how she spent your money

    So lift your head, walk to the bank
    protrude that upper lip
    your lovely ruddy rotten plank
    Just housed you in this skip.
