The spinsters all got the report

That he didn’t scoff

At favorite trough

Now he fights them off at his fort

      The guy looks like a combo of St. Patrick and Don Quixote!

      No reports whether the former ever had to fight off the ladies. The latter? He loved them.

      Good one, Mhatter.
