Inspector Jack Poem

Recommended Posts

I don't mean to bore all of my ASHI friends who have seen this already, but I know there are some here who haven't been on the "other" forum, and would get a kick out of it. [}:)]

"Inspector Jack" [:-devil]

An inspector named Jack came to town,

His name was soon heard all around,

His reports were as meek as a mouse,

He was always so fair to the house

Jack made lots of dough as he went,

From referrals the realtors had sent,

No words of alarm had been spoken,

Not one single deal had been broken

Then trouble showed up at Jack's door,

In the form of fat lawsuits galore,

He'd duck and he'd hide all the day,

The things those ex-clients would say!

Next thing you know Jack was gone,

Leaving realtors to fend all alone,

But they didn't have too long to frown,

An inspector named Bill came to town

My apologies to any and all "Jack" or "Bill" readers. [:I]

Ah-so Grasshopper! You mean those ignorant "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?" things? That stuff is so dumb it's almost funny. As if sound waves depend on receptors for existance. [:-dunce]

How about a little Confucius:

"The hand can see what the eye cannot feel." Remember your first time in a dark back-seat? [:-drool]

Richard's post reminds me, I've been meaning to compliment management on the "qoute" box on the home page. [:-thumbu] I sat here watching it for about a half-hour the other night; very interesting until it starts to repeat. Too bad we can't contribute to it.

Welcome to the club Richard! Peey-yeww! And you told me to keep my day job!? [:-crazy]

Very well then sir, here's one my limmericks...have the small children leave the room. [:-bonc01]

An inspector came down from Nantucket,

Whose head was shaped just like a bucket,

White-washed his reports,

Got dragged through the courts,

Till he finally gave up and said "F*** it!"

I'll understand if that one doesn't make the front. [:I] The bucket-head reference is a nod to Walter Jowers, for those who might not make the connection.

It seems I only have one other limerick from the Prickett Wars, so I'll just throw it in too.

A "Master" who wrote thin reports,

Ignored big defects of all sorts,

The realtors flocked to him,

But the clients all sued him,

Now all he owns is his shorts [:D]
