Okay you kids at home...."I'm an expertly trained Toerag/Asshole....don't try this at home.....

I was drivin' to New Orleans,
A friend of mine and I,
Cruisin' down to Mardi Gras,
Drivin' bout 85.

We were listnin' to the radio,
One of them trivia shows,
Drivin' in a Mustang,
With a cellular phone.

The DJ asked a question,
Said "We'll take caller number nine."
I musta dialed the telephone,
about a dozen times.

The question that he asked them was;
'What's it say upon,
Smokey Bear's hat my friends,
That's today's question."

I finally got the DJ,
He said, "You're caller number nine,
Congratulations fella,
You called us just in time!"

He again then asked the question,
But said I answered wrong?
The answer that I rendered was;
"Hat made in Taiwan?"
He laughed and laughed until he sobbed,
And though the answer's wrong,
Would I like to have a job?,
Cuz your mind is really gone!

ROFLMAO! I love the poem, sweets... and the story it tells!!!

You call this a story true
I'm sure that DJ never knew
The answer on call number nine
Would be from a Toerag mind
Completely right, though incorrect
"Made in Taiwan" was just perfect!

Speaking as one who works within that intangible media of sound, I found your answer to be perfectly acceptable. I would have awarded you the prize on humor alone. As for a job? Clearly the man was insane.

Toerag,
You have a fertile mind toe
Some day I'll plant a seed
And let it grow.

But Toe my friend....
This tale can't end
We cannot guess
You must confess

Hat, you see!!!
