A Valentine Or An Idea (limerick)

Updated on June 18, 2013

I took my wife out for a treat

And all of her friends said how sweet

What they didn’t know

My reason for show

At home there was no food to eat

Not responsible for a wife who gets an idea from this limerick.

      Eating out with the wife, Martin, is fine and dandy,

      But much more expensive than giving her candy!

      As Tom Waits once sang ......"better off without a wife"

      And Sir Martin - you are still the funniest man in Hub show business.
