Jumpers, Sweaters and Woolly Things


The following has been inspired by #The Prompt over at MumTurnedMom
Sweater, n. Garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly. Ambrose Bierce

There was a man from Wensleydale
Who stayed out drinking lots of ale.
He caught a cold
Felt blue and old,
"Wear your jumper," he heard Mum wail.

The little girl with a pretty pink bow
Went out to build a man of snow,
In a warm woolly jumper, coat and hat
Socks, scarf and mittens, all of that.
Her mother hurried to fetch her in
"You'll catch a cold, poor little thing!"

Knock, knock!
Who's there?
Sweater.
Sweater who?
The more it rains sweater it gets.

Knock, knock!
Who's there?
Woolly.
Woolly who?
Woolly be doing tonight?

Stop. Stop with the knock knock jokes already!
I do apologise for my rather sad sense of humour. Feel free to not laugh.

  11. Oosh! I have an aversion to sweaters/jumpers that has lasted since childhood. I think it was the grey cable-knit ones my mum knitted for school. I'm with the man from Wensleydale - I'd rather go cold. And drink ale :-) #Prose4T
