Delbert

Delbert was a hillbilly from the Arkansas sticks.
He moved to the hills of Kentucky in 2006.
He loved the grass of vivid green
And the whole land was a lovely scene.

He loved the folks, friendly and warm
The whole place had a wonderful charm
He loved the food from the grits to the ham
But he just couldn't get his favorite jam.

As much as he loved the grits
The Kentucky Jelly gave him the shits.
It had a bad taste and left a film from his mouth to his belly.
There was just no eating that KY Jelly.

Wait.... You're not supposed to eat it? That explains a lot.

Ben Heller said...

Now I know the ingredients to KY jelly !

There should be a government health warning.

Good one Fuzz.

Curare_Z said...

LOL. I was trying to figure out what "kentucky Jelly" was when I got to the last line.

Fuzz -- you've got one hell of an imagination dude.

Mimi said...

Well then he shouldn't expect those Kentucky girls to swallow;)

Mike said...

He should have had it with peanut butter. It would have stiffened him up a little.

Paige Burns said...

catch: Thanks, no reply.

andie: Indeed it would.

ben: Thanks, I heard a joke with that punchline the other day and just kind of worked it out in poetic fashion.

cz: This one was just a reworked joke. I can't take much credit except for knowing a good joke when I hear one.

:P fuzzbox said...

mimi: Por que no?

mike: Now that's phunny.

paige: I didn't notice that until you said it. She does.

terry: You are right. Although in their defense they do have the warming kind now. Woo Hoo.

Jamie Dawn said...

Poor, ignorant AR hick just thought the KY stood for Kentucky. He probably thought it was made from some transparent, seedless fruit.
Come back to AR, you bumpkin!

Fun poem!!

yellowdog granny said...

Pixie said...

LOL.

I admit it took a minute or two to register, I'm slow like that....

writer chick said...

I'd have thought that by now, it came in different flavors than Kentucky.

Have you seen the KY Jelly billboard that shows a tube and says, "Yeah, we can't think of any other uses for it either."

jamie dawn: A transparent seedless fruit could be taken so many ways.

granny: And I will keep serving them up.

pixie: I don't think it's slow. It just takes a while for some to get into a warped frame of mind.

wc: They really do need to work on getting a few flavors concocted.

:P fuzzbox said...

lisa: Ahh, that is sooo sweet.

sherri: Thanks.

angel, jr: I will give you the creative part. I don't know about the genius part.

ol' lady: My muse thanks you.
