The Soup That Shines Up My Day (limerick)

Updated on February 1, 2015

A soup I made wife wanted more

And boy did that make ego sore

For that soup of mine

Did not taste so fine

But how it would shine kitchen floor

      Funny. Sounds like some of Mr. B's cooking, and it reminds me of the day we broke a bottle of vokda in the floor. It was the best wax remover we ever used.

      Funny! I just made a big pot of homemade soup this morning. Hope that it stays in soup bowls and never hits the floor. Of course if it did, we have a dog that would probably help lick it up. :))

      Your soup, Martin, used to clean floors?

      Now that is really funny.

      But do not be too proud my friend.

      Cleaning floors with it saves you money.
