The Perfect Girl!

by cricketjeff on July 21, 2009.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

I met her at a picnic and I wouldn’t let her go
She wasn’t very pretty and her speech was rather slow
With almost all her attributes I bet you’d find a fault
But no-ones belly button held a better dose of salt

See, celery is just my thing I love the angry crunch
And I would always have a stick at breakfast or at lunch
But celery needs salt you see and round here there’s a rule
You get your salt from navels or you feel a proper fool

So I have found my perfect girl, although she’s rather plain
Her belly button basin has relieved my dreadful strain
I’ll marry her and keep her as a cellar and a wife
So I can salt my celery at each meal of my life!!!

‘You use belly buttons to keep salt in when you eat celery’ Unknown

Actually I never put salt on celery …

Table manners around the world are ODD!
