…My True Love Gave to Me…
Down at Florida Seaside Villa
Judith: What’s that strong fishy smell dear?
Lancelot: Well now, it just happens to be fish. These little flippers were just about to hit their best before date so I picked them up for a song.
Lancelot: You ever see a prettier bunch of fish?
Judith: Well, all I can say is they’d be a heck of a lot prettier if they were gutted, cleaned, and lying in bags in the icebox.
Meanwhile over at the Trailer Park
Joodles: Dagnabbit, this is the last straw.
Lannie: But it was lookin’ so bare after I got the trees chopped up and you put the fruit away. These fellas was just pinin’ for a home.
Joodles: This is the last straw. One more lawn decoration and I’m moving into the camper.
Orange fish: I’d like to be….
Blue fish: Under the sea……
Yellow fish: In an octopus’s garden in the shade……
