…My True Love Gave to Me
Down at Florida Seaside Villa
Lancelot: There, that’s the last one dear.
Judith: The last one of what, honey?
Lancelot: The last of the manatees. You said you wanted manatees.
Judith: Sweetie, you really should look into those hearing aids. I may have said “more trees”, not “manatees”. But they’re soooo sweet. I wonder what they eat?
Meanwhile over at the Trailer Park
Joodles: Where the binkity-blank did all the monkeys come from?
Lannie: I got ’em on sale. You said you wanted more monkeys.
Joodles: Clean out yer ears, ya nimrod, I said “more trees” not “monk-ees”
Lannie: Must have been that knock on the head I got buildin’ snowmens. Sheesh. Everyone loves monkeys.
On the Sixth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me
Six Mistake Manatees
(or Six Mistake Monkeys – depending on where you live)
