I went to the door and the postman delivered a partridge in a pear tree.
What a delightful gift. I couldn’t have been more surprised.
With dearest love and affection,

Today the postman brought your very sweet gift. Just imagine, two turtle
doves … I’m just delighted at your very thoughtful gift. They are just
All my love,

Oh aren’t you the extravagant one! Now I must protest. I don’t deserve such
generosity. Three French hens. They are just darling, but I must insist….
you are too kind.

Today the postman delivered four calling birds. Now really! They are too
beautiful, but don’t you think enough is enough? You’re being too romantic.

What a surprise! Today the postman delivered five golden rings! One for each
finger. You’re just impossible, but I love it. Frankly, John all those
squawking birds were beginning to get on my nerves.
All my love,

When I opened the door there were actually six geese a-laying on my front
steps. So you’re back to the birds again, huh? Those geese are huge! Where
ever will I keep them? The neighbours are complaining and I can’t sleep
through all the racket.

What’s with you and the f…. birds? Seven swans-a-swimming. What kind of a
goddam joke is this? There’s bird shit all over the house and they never
stop the racket. I’m a nervous wreck and I can’t sleep at night.
IT’S NOT FUNNY … so stop with the f… birds!

I think I prefer the birds. What the hell am I going to do with eight maids
a-milking? It’s not enough with all those birds and eight maids a-milking,
but they had to bring their own goddam cows. There is shit all over the lawn
and I can’t move in and out of my own house. Just lay off me. SMART ASS.

What are you? Some kind of sadist? Now there’s nine pipers piping. And boy,
do they pipe! They haven’t stopped chasing those maids since they got here.
The cows are upset and stepping all over the screeching birds. No wonder
they screech. What am I going to do? The neighbours have started a petition
to evict me. You’ll get yours.

You Rotten Jerk,
Now there’s ten ladies dancing – I don’t know why I call those tarts ladies.
They’ve been all over the nine pipers all night long. Now the cows can’t
sleep and they’ve got diarrhoea. My living room is a river of shit. The
commissioner of buildings has subpoenaed me to give cause why the building
shouldn’t be condemned. I’m setting the police on you.
One who means it,
- 24 Dec
What’s with the eleven lords a-leaping of those maids and the aforementioned
“ladies”? Some of those broads will never walk again. Those pipers ran
through the maids and are after the cows now! All 234 of the birds are dead.
They have been trampled to death in the orgy. I hope you’re satisfied you

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person which almost went unnoticed last week. Larry La Prise, the man who wrote the song “The Hokey Pokey“, died peacefully at age 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
