Sunday’s column (read it here) is about Burma-Shave, the shaving lotion whose roadside signs in verse were a sensation.
A few more jingles that I liked but didn’t fit into the column:
“The cannibals/took just one view/and said/he looks too nice/to stew.”
“She put/a bullet/thru his hat/but he’s had/closer shaves than that.”
“Broken romance/stated fully/She went wild/when he/went wooly.”
“He had the ring/He had the flat/But she felt his chin/And that/was that.”
“Said Farmer Brown/who’s bald/on top/Wish I could/rotate the crop.”
