George, George, George of the Jungle
Once upon a second grader class trip
A father went with his daughter to the zoo
While, walking and watching all the animals
jumping, crawling and flying about
The dad decided to have fun with the lion and the kids
by roaring at the lion and having the king of the jungle
roar back louder a few times
Some kids were scared, while others laughed
All the while, George of the jungle watched
George was filled with fatherly pride
And wanted show his young son
how he could roar too
George, George, George of the jungle
strong as he could be
Began beating his chest and roaring loudly
When suddenly a wave of lion pee bounced
off his chin and ran down chest
The crowd of kids laughter roar far louder
than the lion ever could have
George, George, George of the jungle
strong as he could be spitted, cursed and had to change his shirt

i was reading along thinking "ok, this is cute. but it's not funny." then i got to the urine part.
i'm still giggling as i type this. i'm overtired at this moment, but i think getting urinated on would be funny no matter what my frame of mind was.
it's also funny partially because my nephew, when getting his baths as a baby, would hit me EVERY time. even when i learned and started standing on the other side of the bathroom. i think he'd hold it & wait until he had me to aim at. lol.

"watch out for that... pee!" hehe...

When I was a child...oh so many years ago...lol...we went on a field trip to the St. Louis Zoo. Well, they have big center cages for the cats.
We walked up to the cage that had the panther in it. He was so pretty and just like a domestic cat he was rubbing up against the cage walls.
Well...Jerry (another kid in my group) leaned over the rail to reach out and touch the panther...peeeeeeeeee...it came squirting out and went all over the bottom of Jerry's pants and shoes! LMFAO
Never forgot it and that was about 15 years ago!
Your daughter and yourself will always have this humorous occasion to remember. LOL
Loved the George of the Jungle...lol

Still funny though. I was looking through and wanted to comment on something of yours, but I'd hate to sit here and critique it. I think it was meant to bring smiles to the sunny ES faces, and it did its job. So how stupid would it be to say 'where's the flow?' or some dumbness like that.
I wouldn't EVER go to the zoo with you.

YOU GOT PEED ON.
That teaches you what NOT to do to a LION.
Nice, humorous story. It made me laugh :)
|| Posted on 2005-04-17 00:00:00 | by poetofthenight | [ Reply to This ] || Wow! Ed, you told me this story awhile ago, but I wonder why I didn't look at it sooner. I mean this is hilarious. I mean telling me the fun times with you daughter, and than you told me this. That is such a memorable moment. I bet we all wish we could see this. I bet the audience started to laugh. But it just shows Ed, you have such a big gift, so many people are inspired by you. Like the guy that copied you by dooing that. He wanted to impress his son, but I guess all he got was his son laughing at him.|
Or was it like that...? What did the son say?
|| Posted on 2005-04-16 00:00:00 | by XxStephyxX04 | [ Reply to This ] || heh... I like this writing simply because it takes a step outside of your usually serious themed and more out-there, reality writings... to me it seems as though for this brief period of writing, you have returned to the more immature and easy-going, light hearted part of you that is masked by the more attuned to society and its problems part of you... This piece made me laugh and that is a rare thing these days... Great job Ed. Keep it up.|
|| Posted on 2005-04-11 00:00:00 | by Exquisite_Death | [ Reply to This ] || I like how you transfered this into poetry. Still hilarious...I can almost feel the embarassment that guy must have felt at that moment. That sucks...Anyway, keep doing what ya doing...|
|| Posted on 2005-04-11 00:00:00 | by xtremegentleman | [ Reply to This ] || yeah! i was so glad to see that you turned this into a poem! it had me laughing and thinking of the silly things poeple do to amuse children. then it backfires on this poor guy! im sure he would be delighted to make soo many get a chuckle! LOL too too funny ed!|
|| Posted on 2005-04-09 00:00:00 | by stolie77 | [ Reply to This ] || LOL! that is soooooo funny Ed! I miss talking to you... and hearing all your crazy funny stories! anywho, I am going to go take that last roll of toilet paper! lol! have a great day!|
|| Posted on 2005-04-09 00:00:00 | by AmandaLyn | [ Reply to This ] || That's so cute that your wrote about your trip to the zoo with your son. Funny too. I like it. It makes me think of things that I write about.||| Posted on 2005-04-09 00:00:00 | by manda_bear | [ Reply to This ] || Ed, I'm so glad you decided to write a poem about this experience. I was telling my husband about it last night and he laughed his butt off. Great job! Here's a great big Lion hug for you, without the golden shower.|
|| Posted on 2005-04-09 00:00:00 | by wannabe1 | [ Reply to This ] || How totally awesome that you took a great life expierence and turnded it into a piece of art. This is why I admire your talents.|
|| Posted on 2005-04-09 00:00:00 | by Rubi_Roja | [ Reply to This ] || I can just see that scene in my mind and it is totally hilarious. Great way to express it.. in verse.. making us all laugh "with you" here at Elite. |
|| Posted on 2005-04-08 00:00:00 | by Intricate1 | [ Reply to This ] || Ed, what a nut...good job. There were a couple of spelling errors, but it sure didnt take way from the comedy. Its always funny to see somebody put in their place by an animal too. Especially with children present...priceless memories. Nice write and have a good one.||| Posted on 2005-04-08 00:00:00 | by hyproglo | [ Reply to This ] || Ed, you have some serious problems, my man! This was piss-funny (scuse the pun) and a delight. Thanks for brightening my day|
|| Posted on 2005-04-08 00:00:00 | by wewak11 | [ Reply to This ] || that was pretty funny Ed! the fact that it really happened is the piece d'resistance. poor guy... i hope he laughed just as loud as the kids! thanks for the laughs on this day when i am fevered and fatigued.||| Posted on 2005-04-08 00:00:00 | by magnicat | [ Reply to This ] || LOL! I saw the title and started singing along and had to read. But I have to correct you on something, in the beginning you're going with your daughter, and then later you want to show off for your son. I'm comfuzzled! Other than that, I love it cuz I started laughing and laughing and I kinda fell off my chair so you owe my bum an apology. LoL. Later Dayz!||| Posted on 2005-04-08 00:00:00 | by painofthanatos | [ Reply to This ] || LOL! That is hillarious! The only thing wrong with this piece is a spelling error of "suddenly" in one of the latter strophes. Other than that, you again put us all to shame with your creative genious and sing-song talent. Very well done. It's no wonder that you save other people's poetry (like mine) with but the wave of your magic wand.|
