News, but not the serious kind
A poet, when getting a prize, lost his trousers before the king’s eyes…
Blog Guy, what do you think would be the very, VERY coolest thing that could EVER happen in the whole world? You know, like if you had only one wish.
Peace on earth, good will toward men, I suppose.
Okay, well then, the SECOND coolest thing?
An end to poverty and ignorance everywhere.
Let’s try again, Blog Guy. The THIRD coolest.
All animals would be treated with the love and respect they so deserve.
Sigh. Then let’s say you get a FOURTH wish, but that’s it. That’s the last one.
That’s very easy. Some big poet would be getting a major literary prize from the King of Spain, see, and his pants would fall down.
This is your big day, Blog Guy! We’re granting only Wish Number Fours! It’s a real shame you didn’t number them differently.
