Howdy all y'all. My name is Pig Sty and I'm in the can. My darn cousin Bobby Jo couldn't find the piddlin' keys to the truck in time for a getaway, so we heap got in' trouble.

I'm all torn up that my purdy sweet heart Daisy May has taken up with the Mayor. She wrote me a letter tellin' me so herself : To My Man in a Can. I ain't good with the writin' malarkey.

But for my beauty Daisy May, a man's gotta try, aren't he.

So here' my letter y'all. I shore do hope she reads it. Darn' it. Ah think Ah got somethin' in ma ah.

Howdy Daisy May!


Howdy Daisy May, I hear what you say

I’m dun hankerin' for our roll in the hay

I ain’t what you think; I’ve gone changed my way

Please do tell my boys, Tommy and Ray



I ain’t no longer cussin’ nor swearin’

Ever since I open'd my soul up and barin’

To the Jailhouse preacher who’s so darn’ carin’

Of this lowly creachur who’s been too darin’



You’re darn-tootin, I found God

I no longer hanker fishin’ for Cod

If you come by and give me a nod

I’ll pray daily ( for yer beautiful bod)



The Mayor’s more of a crook than me

He’ll say he’s fixin’ to go on a spree

Blowin’ ill gotten money all on thee

But he’s got more women than all ‘o Tennessee



In sickness and health, ashes to dust

Darn’ preacher tells me I shouldn’t lust

When I read your letter, darlin’ dearest

All I could think of was your double-D bust



Return to me, My Purdy li’l pet

I sho’ nuff is the best you gonna get

I tell thee I am filled with regret

Of bein’ this big, tall, scary preacher’s pet.



Please don’t go throw this away

I soon will be done in the can Daisy May

And when I'm done, I'm all jacked up

I'm right back with ya, to sup from yer cup.


Hugs/ Kisses/ and fondles.

‘Pig Sty’

      Mohan, I loved it, could have been written by my ex, except he wasn't in the can. I missed this, it was written before I started here on HP.

      I loved the pictures also, except they don't do nuthin for this lil-ol-country-girl.

      Have a Blessed day.

      Docmo,

      I recently read Daisy May's "My Man in the Can" and absolutely loved it! You can imagine my excitement when I found out you had brought it to the next level! lol..there is nothing like a jail house conversion to Jesus, huh? I think you got her double-D attentions! Very good!

      OK, now this is makin' some sense as I read it booty backwards, Doc!

      Speaking of which, I was wondering wassup with the blatant omission of Queen's "Bicycle Races/ FBGMTWGR...".... just sayin'?

      You and effer... purrfect together! Voted UP & FAB. Hugs, Maria

      drbj and sherry 5 years ago from south Florida

      I hope that Pig Sty is an understanding sort of a man,

      But Daisy Mae found some'un else since he's in the can.

      Her new beau, Lil Abner, appreciates her many facets,

      Including her double-D bust and the size of her assets.

      Mary- you're right. You shouldn't have told me cuz my naughty streak will latch on to it! Thank you for your visit and comments. I know the great British tradition of double entendres and innuendo is alive and well and it was nice to have an opportunity to tap into it, Thanks to Paula.

      Mary Craig 5 years ago from New York

      I probably shouldn't tell you this but years ago my (city) brother called me Daisy Mae and my husband Clem (at least it wasn't pig sty). You two have a great thing going here (at least a movie anyway)...how resourceful of you Mohan to pick up on Paula's "Man in the Can"....of course that title does lead to other thought but good old Daisy Mae with her double D's can conjure up a lot more!

      A laugh a minute! Voted up, funny, and awesome!

      Jaye Denman 5 years ago from Deep South, USA

      Hilarious! Your reply to "Daisy Mae" shows you're as much a master of humor as of serious topics, Doc Mo....You and Paula could write a funny sit-com or movie with these characters!

      Mohan, I would love to, but you can do the beer and I'll do the Red Bull as I don't drink.

      There are a million fine wines and Irish Whiskies and liqueurs that I am missing but I'll have to wait till I'm fending off houris and the like.

      But watching you downing a ferkin of lager will be fine till then.

      bravewarrior - Is this why it is called a 'Freudian 'slip'?

      Ian I know what you meant but I had to delete it in case someone took offence. I am sure you understand.

      Mohan Kumar 5 years ago from UK

      Ian - what does it say about me that when you say L'il abner - I know what you are talking about. back in the seventies I was but a little nipper but my voracious appetite for all kinds of books meant I scavenged old book shops and read anything I could lay my hands on. Al Capp's comic strip included. Thanks for reminding me of Daisy Mae (née Scragg) Yokum.

      We sure need to share a beer and talk all manner of literature and language.

      Shauna L Bowling 5 years ago from Central Florida

      Docmo, it's funny. Each time I come into this hub to read the new comments, it looks like Daisy Mae's bikini bottom says "fed up", not flour! Ha ha! What would Freud say about that?

      My friend in Australia wanted to call her granddaughter Daisy Mae but was denied it by her daughter.

      I said, "As in Daisy Mae Yokum? L'il Abner's wife? "

      She said, "The same."

      I love her (my friend AND Daisy Mae... but in that order).

      Mohan,

      great reply from Pig Sty,

      Still got that gal in his eye,

      His letter went way off track

      When he mentioned her rack

      He should stick to kind words

      'Bout the bees and the birds

      And do somethin' exquisite

      At the conjugal visit!

      Not to talk about the pictures. Hilarious!

      There is an endearing truth in these two poems - 'My Man In a Can' and 'Howdy Daisy May' - that makes one romanticise the horrible lives of Daisy Mays.

      Voted up, funny and excellent.

      The accent you've mastered, Docmo, deserves applause :)
