The first rib came from........


The first rib came from Adam,

and formed his lovely Eve,
how delicious that must

have been for him,
when God saw potential

in what ribs concieve.

My first rib came with

blazing hot sauce,
and a dare that it'd

make me sick,
my face turned so red

that a neighboring table

thought someone should

give me the Heimlich.


It took four jugs of water,

 two beers and some bread,

before I could thank them and say,

I am really quite fine,

I'm just sunburned inside,

but that was my last

hot rib that day.

Ever Since then I stick

to a much milder sauce,
or should I say it sticks on me.
after 72 napkins, and a

couple warm cloths,

I like it best when the

meat falls off the bone,
Hoist one burnt crisp

end, and suckle
the whole thing real quick

so you don't miss
a single shred of meat,

Like some extra large
adult pacifer till the

rib is cleaned.

Pork, Beef, Chinese,

Baby back, Western style,
I aint picky except when

it comes to vacumming
each and every delectable tidbit.

I feel sorry for the

Muslims who are left
to nibble on dry pita bread

and thin sliced lamb.
no wonder so many

become terrorist.

My record for rib eating

 is 37 ribs in one sitting,
I would've eaten 38 but

then I didn't want to feel
too uncomfortable

the rest of the night.

I've always had an

affinity for Miss Piggy,
Just the thought of her

laid out on a bed
of let us, looking saucy and steamy,
makes my mouth water.

I can understand why

the big bad wolf
almost blew out a lung

trying to get
some rib tickling  

culinary delight.

But there are plenty of restaurants
that save me the trouble of chasing
a porky puppett, they steam, baste,

and barb-e-que, far more lovely

racks then she ever displayed in her career.

Think I'll call in a take out order,
and wrap up this poem.
don't want to get sticky sauce
all over my keyboard.
Bone appetit.

So cute and clever,

You can get the most succulent ribs @ piggly wiggly

they,re so good and juicy

with a savory sauce

then a green salad you toss

makes for a meal

that gives one a good feel

OmG I am just squealing here like a Piggy with Hot sauce on her piglet tail. Stack em, rack em up, pile them high, like chicken wings off a HOOTER. Ribs are my number one finger licking, lip smackin, bone sucking meat treat.

Ribs are my dibs anytime..spicy, hot, sticky, gooey, saucy, bbqued, meat falling off the bone. Gotta love em.

Now I'm starving, I'm heading over to my favorite Rib Shack next to my sugar shack. Yippy Yi Oh Kyee
