WARNING – Don’t Let Your Kids Read This (limerick)

Updated on June 19, 2013

To celebrate my special day

My kids took me to a buffet

To waiter I’d sigh

My kids had come by

A gift for which I had to pay

      Well, I'm sure it's the thought that counts. You may have paid money for it, but they helped you receive the "experience"!

      Cute limerick. I hope you had a happy Father's Day!
