Great Failures of our Time #29: First Fridge-Magnet Poetry

Just look at this fridge-magnet poetry set.

The venture was a commercial failure, on account of the rarity of fridges in 1889 for the magnets to stick to.

Put a velcro backing on the word blocks and stick them on any convenient sheep.

I think we're ignoring the level of self-deception around Mrs. Brown's cow.

Oh so it doesn't rhyme so it can't be a poem? Scantionistas!

After a remarkably good outcome in a little urgent care clinic in Sacramento after an unfortunate encounter with an extremely angry gentleman with a big sharp knife (perhaps he was going camping?), I can unequivocally assure you that yes, boys can indeed learn to sew...

Y'know, sure, capcha, I get it, whatevs n shit, but every time they make the stoopid picture of a number blurrier. At some point I'm liable to get the hint...

Most people report finishing reading Riddled more numb than when they began.

Put a velcro backing on the word blocks and stick them on any convenient sheep.

Note also that every time the sheep wander up to a barbed-wire fences to rub themselves and scratch their itches, the words will be rearranged, providing a constant supply of aleatoric poetry.

If you see a sheep bearing the words in their original default order you will know that "That one didn't come up to scratch".
