The dog ate mothers toes
Poetry.com is having a poetry contest. Humor columist Dave Barry recently posted in his blog, Hey wouldn’t it be fun if we entered poems with the phrase “the dog ate mothers toes” with a first name of “Freemont”. Then we could search poetry.com for poems by that name!
“The poetry.com site now has more than 500 poems by people coincidentally named Freemont concerning the consumption of mother’s toes by the dog. Some of these poems are genuinely alarming.
This blog is SO very proud of you all. Just think: If you were to take all that energy, creativity and talent, and apply it to something truly useful — something that would benefit humankind — this blog would be very disappointed.”
