Vote! Vote! Vote!

Vote! Vote! Vote! Like a baby stoat!
Stoat! Stoat! Stoat! Cast a leetle vote!

We spoke our piece, we marched the march, we waved our misspelled signs
But on this day comes the best way to say what’s on our minds

Whether you pick Governor Moonbeam or the Lady-Who’s-Not-A-Witch
Just be sure to show up early, so you vote without a hitch!

Don’t scorn those with opposing views; call no one idiotic
For we’re just stars of different stripes, and each as patriotic

So get it done, there’s no excuse; no citizen should be lazy
Restore some sanity to our beloved democrazy!

Punchlines Only Dogs Get

“Then the rabbi says, ‘Well, if you’re really an ostrich, sell me some life insurance!'”

“If I could walk that way, I’d have enough mangoes to open my own bowling alley!”

“Three: One to screw in the light bulb, and two to sprinkle cornstarch on the floors and windowsills, then hide in the dishwasher and wait for the gnomes.”
