Dumber Than a Table

In the days of Bush One, there lived a bulldog named Mabel.

Even as bulldogs go, Mabel was not exactly, shall we say, the brightest candle on the altar.

And this was her song:

The Mabel Song (1)

(To the tune of: Dreidel)

 

I know a dog named Mabel:

she has a corkscrew tail.

She's dumber than a table,

but smarter than Dan Quayle.

 

She's Mabel, Mabel, Mabel:

she has a corkscrew tail.

She's dumber than a table,

but smarter than Dan Quayle.

 

Times change, and songs change accordingly.

 

The Mabel Song (2)

 

I know a dog named Mabel:

she has a corkscrew tush.

She's dumber than a table,

but smarter than George Bush.

 

She's Mabel, Mabel, Mabel:

she has a corkscrew tush.

She's dumber than a table,

but smarter than George Bush.

 

Mabel has long since departed for the Summerland of Dogs, but her memory is evergreen.

These days, this is what they sing.

 

The Mabel Song (3)

 

I know a dog named Mabel:

she has a corkscrew rump.

She's dumber than a table,

but smarter than Donald Trump.

 

She's Mabel, Mabel, Mabel:

she has a corkscrew rump.

She's dumber than a table,

but smarter than Donald Trump.

 

This Year, Vote Smart!

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.

    As always, Mabel tells it like it is.
    Thanks for channeling!
