Pardon my Pizza (and My French)


It's Saturday Centus and Labor Day weekend, all rolled into one! As you can see, Jenny's got us off on some kind of oddball food-prompt tangent, and I can't seem to resist going along for the ride. Misery loves company, so I hope you join us! My own hundred words are below, with the prompt, as always, in red. (Twice, as it were.)

Pardon my Pizza (and My French)


She gave it to him with a kiss,
in hopes that the truth he would miss.
But when he saw the tofu,
he yelled, “No, NO, NO, Sue!
What kind of a pizza is this?

What kind of a pizza is this?
It’s the kind that will bring you true bliss.
With no meat, there’s no fat;
it’s more healthy like that.
So eat up, or me-off you will piss!

(Yes, I know that’s a vulgar last line,
but it suited my meaning so fine
that I had to enlist it.
I couldn't resist it!
So pardon my French, just this time.)

Disclaimer: Even though my name is used in this long limerick, it is not a true story. Cooking with tofu is not my forte. Having said that, it's true that my husband would "up his nose turn" at a tofu pizza! ;)

I love it Sue. However, I am with the guy on this one. There are just thing one shouldn't mess with.

Sounds like someone's going to be wearing pizza soon:@)

Very good Sue! Although tofu ranks right up there with head cheese....it's just down right gross :) ~Ames

Eva Gallant said...

What a great group of limericks! Awesome.

Well the music rocks, and love the poem, yeah that one word does bring other visions to mind, but I just love how we all come up with so many different ways of Jenny's prompts....such excellent brains at work...with or without really tasting any pizza!

cj Schlottman said...

Love this clever limerick! Sadly, I am one of those who actually eat tofu on pizza!

I don't think I would like tofu pizza, but did love your pizza right..."pithy" ending and all!

Brian Miller said...

haha...but sorry i am on the side of the carnivores...smiles.

I'm with you on the tofu - it squeaks on your teeth when you eat it. But it IS healthy so I'm not totally dissing it (as opposed to pi***** it) Have a great weekend. As for me, I have a new grandbaby being pushed to the light as we speak! Exciting weekend.

Judie said...

Doesn't tofu take on the flavor of the other toppings? So just how bad can it be? Sue, you already know how I feel about your wonderful poetry. This piece did not disappoint, for sure!! Brava!

Grandma Honey said...

I don't mind tofu, but not on my pizza!

The Cello Strings said...

lovely rhyming,

enjoyed the power of your words.
superb entry.

Darlene said...

What a good one. It was so funny, I almost woke Dick up when I laughed. To tell you the truth, if you served me pizza with tofu, I would definitely be pissed off too!

Although, now that I think of it, the restuarant where we used to get Japanese food cooked right at our table served tofu, along with lots of other things that made up that yummy Sukiaki that I have never been able to find anymore. I used to think it was pretty okay in that.

LOL. I love "me-off you will piss"! I think it works perfectly. This was loads of fun especially with the music. I always enjoy my visits to Sue's News.
