Cellphones
tragedy :: 'mouse

wallflower :: pam

As annoying as it is generally understood to be when people take cell phone calls in public, it’s even worse to carry your own cell phone all day, every day, and never have it ring for you once.

The odd little girl called Abraham Jones,
Was popular amongst the town’s cicerones;
“She’s allergic to flip phones, make a call and you’ll see
That she’ll puff up just like she’s been stung by a bee;”
So the tourists would dial and fill the air with ringtones,
Just to watch Abraham swell 'round her thin little bones.

When I complain that I can’t give myself away with a free cellphone, the correct response is NOT, “Well…what kind of minutes plan are you offering?”

Henry’s Fish :: Keith
