Chancellor Merkel Has Five Beers At A Party

Ms. Merkel was gracious and dear
When the waiter "delivered" her beer.
The serving tray slipped
And and its contents were dripped
Down her back soaking clear to her rear.

Expecting to be drawn and quartered
For spilling five glasses of portered,
The waiter's heart sped
Until Angela said,
"This isn't the drink that I ordered."

Waiter says, "Oopsie...did I do thaaaaat?" 
No... not really but read the article to see what he did say.

Gas Near $6 Per Gallon In Some Parts of USA

In the Gulf States (where oil rigs are many)
And Alaska (where crude's found a-plenty)
Gas prices are steep.
In Wyoming they're cheap
Where much less oil is drilled (hardly any).

Price per gallon: 
Tampa = $5.89
Alaska = $6.34
Wyoming = $2.75 
I can't believe I'm thinking $2.75 per gallon is cheap...

The World's First Test Tube Hamburger to be Served in October

I love burgers... at least until now.
They do what!!? I don't want to know how.
I don't think I could ever
Eat beef that was never
Even actually part of the cow.

Test tube burgers coming to a drive-in near you?

Reached over and gave him a squeeze.

To "smoke" but exploded
And wrecked a man's teeth and his tongue.

Selling milk that comes straight from the cow.

But not helpful. It's money misspent.

Giants Win Super Bowl On a Gimme Touchdown

The Patriots made his way clear,
So for Bradshaw, the end zone grew near.
When he saw they were flopping
It was too late for stopping
And he scored the TD with his rear.

Make hemp legal...(what for?)
Let's just hope that she doesn't start singing!

I'm not even kidding, I couldn't make this stuff up...
