It was the Wheel of Fortune, with Vanna and Pat,
Spinning for dollars, and praying that,
It would stop on "big money" - pick the right letter,
Solve the damn puzzle, the sooner the better.

PoetWheel was hoping-for a quick victory,
He'd eaten his Wheaties, he should win this with ease.
He'd spun the big wheel, when it stopped he howled,
He'd hit the big money-said "I'll buy a vowel."
He said, "Give me an "N" - that's my choice"
Pat tried not to grin-and said in a low voice,
"PoetWheel yassee, there's no vowel that's an "N",
I'll give ya a break, let ya try it again."
PoetWheel seemed puzzled, a little confused,
And a little embarrassed of the letter he'd used,
So he tried another letter-this time an "A"
Vanna turned over four boxes, in her usual way,
Pat said, "PoetWheel, do ya want to take a guess?"
Poetwheel with composure...simply said "Yes."
So being careful not to error, no stuttering or stammering,
Blared out; "IT'S WHEATIES BY GOD! THE BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS!"

Curse you again ToeRag.

I was typing in a retort to condemn you lack of proficiency in math, spelling, humor, and personal hygiene and you've gone it fixed it. DAMN YOU!!!

It may be true, I'll laugh at you, despite your rank, vile smell.
But I must content, to soon amend, the vowels N and L.

You may arise, to take the prize of this
"Wheel of Fortune" Fight.
But 'tis true, alas, I would kick your ass, on Bob Barker's Price is Right!
