I don't know why, but this seems ominous. XD

Okay, my writing advice. "Good things come to those who wait, but only what's left behind by those who hustle."

Why is a weather forecaster called a meteorologist. They don't study meteors.
wotf017 Weatherologists seems to be more accurate.

Good question!

Why is it that when you transport something by car, it's called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it's called cargo?

And then...

A hungry African lion came across two men. One was sitting under a tree reading a book. The other was typing away on his typewriter. The lion immediately pounced on the man reading the book and quickly devoured him.

...Even the king of the jungle knows that readers digest and writers cramp.

Turkey smells pilgrim's tales,
Thanksgiving is here!
Lots of food and stuffing as parades come near
Oh! Take to heart, be a part!
All the food we'll eat
Doesn't everyone agree Thanksgiving is a treat!
Ohhhh!!! Dashing to the treats.
So much so much to eat!
Eat it all I must!
Stuffed to top am I
Oh! Oh! Oh!
Mounds of pumpkin pie
Chocolate pizza too!
I must have gained a hundred pounds
But oh my look at you.
Oh! Chocolate pie, pumpkin pie, turkey to fill all.
Come and join with everyone, Thanksgiving in the fall!
*To the tune of dashing through the snow*

***Happy Thanksgiving everyone***
