Toerag had a normal day,
Absolutely nothing planned
So he took a little stroll
Down the ocean in the sand.

He stubbed his toe on something buried
Just beneath a layer of sand
So he bent down and picked it up
And held a small lamp in his hand.

He rubbed the lamp to make it shine -
Out came a genie, don't you know?
She said, "Of all the men alive
The guy who frees me is a Toe!"

She said "Ok, you got two wishes.
Don't tell me three. I know, I know
But three are for the normal men.
You just get two when you're a Toe."

Well, Toerag had a weakness, boys.
A weakness everybody knew.
He lapped up beer from morn to night.
His life revolved around his brew.

So Toerag said, "I want a glass
Filled up with lager, rich and bold,
A glass that never empties and
Will always remain ice-cold."

Poof! The magic glass appeared.
Toe reached and grabbed it, thirstily.
He drank till he could drink no more.
The glass stayed full as it could be!

He gulped again. The glass stayed full!
Toe squealed with wild delight.
He drank again! The brew stayed cold!
Toe's burp put birds to flight.

"Well come on, Toe", the genie said,
"Your last wish, if you please."
"That's easy", Toe said, smilingly
"Gimmee another one of these!!!"

Now I considered not commenting on this right away... after all, there's this limerick poem floating around where I'm called a dog for preferring Toerag... (though I guess my memory isn't all that great for I sure don't remember having my own TV show... and who the hell is Tommy?) LOL But that's okay... I have even more descriptive terms for some of his more ardent admirers *EG*... and to be in his company, I'd gladly woof a few times (or beg, roll over, you name it! LOL)

Which brings me to the poem (I know... you thought I'd never get around to it *G*)... this is great, Balladeer!!! With all the beer he could ever drink, Toe doesn't need money... and he's got all the women, good looks, and talent already! LOL

Balladeer,

I fear you are nice to Toerag with this one.  It is good to see that you two do not always cut each other up.  Here is one piece of information the poem lacks.....what kind of beer?
