~ And The Winner Is…………… ~

English: A New England Thanksgiving dinner, se...

Yesterday I asked you to finish this poem by replacing the last line with something not quite so party-pooperish. Here is the original poem by Unknown:

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
and your pies take the prize,
and may your Thanksgiving dinner
stay off your thighs!

And here are some of my favourite responses:

Change My Body…Change My Life said:

May your yams be delicious
and your pies take the prize,
May your feast on the table
Be one for your eyes.

May your yams be delicious
and your pies take the prize,
and may your Thanksgiving dinner
receive a round of high-fives.

May your Thanksgiving gravy not drip on your ties.

I have several more I will share with you tomorrow – must get on with the business of my day – still have to get the whipping cream to make whipped cream for my pumpkin pie.

  1. Fun blog. Can’t wait to read the rest. 🙂

  2. Nice one, I love the Delicious History’s one for ‘hig- fives’ -:)!

  3. So creative I love your winners 😀

  4. My favourite was the high-fives one too – but the other person got there first. 🙂 I always drip gravy – it’s probably a good thing I don’t have to wear a tie.

    • saves your shirt though – I don’t wear an apron when I cook, I wear it when I eat

    • Thanks, Heidi!

      I’ve gotta say that I rather enjoyed the ties one too 😀

  5. If I was hosting this year, these poems would be at our table!

  6. Thank you so much for posting mine! In so glad that it provided people with a bit of a chuckle 😀

  7. Also, holy crap pumpkin pieeeeeee. Is the picture of one of yours? There’s just not enough pumpkin pie to be found in Australia. Pumpkin is more of a savoury thing over here. FOOLS

    • you can change that – my sons love pumpkin pie but they have to have whipped cream with it

      • Your sons clearly have good taste. I like putting maple syrup in when I whip the cream up 😀

      • I like that idea and it will meld perfectly with pumpkln pie

  8. Love this.

  9. Oh I missed out on all the fun! However i was just telling Heidi (and i read what you wrote but i won’t tell either) that I am not a sweet pumpkin pie fan, but i love pumpkin roasted with lamb!! so my poem ending would have just been weird.. c

    • go ahead and make up a weird ending – I am posting some more tomorrow — that will add a different flavour to the poem (thanks for keeping my secret)

    • Roasted pumpkin is delicious!

      • so how do you fix savory pumpkin–like squash?

      • Yup! Funnily enough, we actually call squash butternut pumpkin. We also don’t really have the big orange Halloween-Style pumpkins over here

      • I learn so much from my blog friends!

      • That’s what I love about meeting bloggers from all around the world. You learn so any amazing new things!

  10. This is why I love bloggers….. because everyone is such a creative, funny bunch! I like the dripping gravy one, probably because that usually ends up being me. 😉

  11. Hi there. That was fun. You remind me just how close the holidays are. I suppose I should be writing something nice for the holidays too…but my post will have to be healthy. 🙂
