The Ultimate Sob Story

The squash, I fear, is overcooked [F]

Its "squish" cannot be overlooked [Kansas Sam]

The turkey, too, is rather dry [F]

(I think it said to bake, not fry) [N]

The yams are rather mushy, too [F]

The potatoes a moldy shade of blue [Herr Gimp]

All in all, a perfect meal! [Apsley]

The squash in here is hard to bear [Beefy ]

I think I got some in my hair [Irene Adler]

The pumpkin pie will break your tooth [Dassn't Say]

Oh, yes it will - I say - forsooth! [Apsley]

The whipped cream smeared across the top [Irene Adler]

Fresh pilfered from the corner shop [Beefy ]

It's all enough to make one squeal! [Irene Adler]

Envoi [Roland]

For every type of food there's something to be said [P]

But if it's an animal, I do prefer it dead [fester]

Whereas, with a vegetable, its skin is on its head [Apsley]
