140. Hey Diddle Diddle
© Bruce Goodman 27 February 2014

Tommy sat on his porch early evening gazing at the full moon. He thought the moon was like a balloon. Imagine if it popped!

He was feeling satisfied. After three years of intense research, he had at last finished his doctoral thesis. Tomorrow he would hand it in. He would be known as Doctor Thomas! His thesis was on the Origins of Nursery Rhymes.

Suddenly a full-uddered cow came charging past. It jumped! It never made it to the moon! It couldn’t jump over it! The cow’s horns pierced the moon like a balloon. The moon went POP!

“Damn!” thought Tommy, “it’s back to Square One. That cow just stuffed up my doctoral thesis.”
