received this email which had me in stitches, hope it does the same for you


The following are entries to a contest by The Washington Post, in which
respondents had to write a two-line romantic poem, except that the last
line had to be as unromantic as the first line was romantic.

1. My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife;

Marrying you screwed up my life.

2. I see your face when I am dreaming.

That's why I always wake up screaming.

3. Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;
This describes everything you're not

4. Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss,

But I only slept with you because I was pissed.

5. I thought that I could love no other

that is, until I met your brother.

6. Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you

But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, the sugar bowl's
empty and so is your head.

7. I want to feel your sweet embrace

But don't take that paper bag off your face.

8. I love your smile, your face, and your eyes

Damn, I'm good at telling lies!

9. My love, you take my breath away.

What have you stepped in to smell this way?

10. My feelings for you no words can tell

Except for maybe "Go to hell."

11. What do you think inspired this amorous rhyme?

Two parts vodka, one part lime.

Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day?
Or decide which Playstation game I'm gonna play?

I made that up! What do I win?

ok, challenge accepted!

you fill my world so full of love
but I like gold, and other stuff

I miss you so when you are far
But only *** I drive your car

I want you to live with me
but only if you cook the tea
