There was once a great failing country
In a crisis like a forest with one tree
So they did something rash,
They just printed more cash,
Now the paper's worth more than the money
Stupidity: Doing the same thing over & over, and expecting a different result. As if we needed another sign....

To school my parents said to go,
Work and study was my motto.
Until I discovered boys on the side
And then my high IQ, I had to hide
None liked a girl smarter than Larry, Curly or Moe.

There once was a blonde that proclaimed she
could be a great leader if need be
But when it came to
her deflated I.Q.-
If it dropped any she'd be a veggie!

Young Sid was a speech challenged child
It made him rebellious and wild
He climbed the town's tower,
And though coaxed for an hour,
He said, "No tir, I'm not dumbing-down!"
That's a tad offensive.... cool!

For politicians, enterprising
Who attempt to keep vote counts rising:
When you come into town
Dumb everything down.
A technique that's called Palin-izing.
Imagine: They came up with a VP candidate actually dumber than Bush. Now THAT'S comedy!

Thank goodness this country has moved on to some actual cerebral issues...like if Michelle Obama's dresses suck or not and if Obama should put his suit's jacket back on...

I spent this really long summer
In the land of Joe the Plumber
This never-ending campaign
And mud-slinging rain
Reminds me of “Dumb and Dumber.” (ron.white@gdit.com)

Get lost! Do not pass Go, and do not collect $200 'cause now it ain't worth jack...

Last eight years in our land have been scary
Market plunges and bailouts get hairy,
Let's just hope "Dumbing-Down
Rides out of town
After New Years 09, January.
