Alphabe-Thursday: The Letter G

Jenny Matlock


Greasy, Gloppy, Gopher, Guts
heaped upon a plate,
then served to Greedy Gangsters
so this is what they ate.

They Gagged and Gasped then Gagged some more
for the Grub they really did hate.
And what about the Ghastly chef?
"Sleeping with Fishies" was his fate.





Okay, are you thoroughly disgusted? To make it up to you I am sending you to my friend Luis' blog, Muddy Runner, for his "Friday Leftovers" post. He posted a great "G" video on his blog as a nod to those of us participating in this meme. Go on and have a gander...you won't be disappointed.

Greedy Gangsters, gasping and gagging, and guts on a plate! Wow, this action packed post is a change of paste--complete with artwork, too! Is it original?

And posting Thursdays post on Wednesday? Extra points for that!

And you can teach the whole class the song "great big gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts!" as a special reward for your wonderful, creative post!

I enjoyed that...in fact I'm still chuckling to myself.

Vicki said...

Oh Goodheck! I can't believe two of us posted something about Gopher Guts! No way....
But I've never heard it this way. Different versions of Gopher Guts, what a hoot! I almost posted the whole thing but it's what my brothers taught me and it's even worse..
Anyway, glad to come see this...I'll be back :D

I love your rhyming poem. It's like something children would sing. Brought right to the age of seven.

Your collage(?) is wonderful.

Super cute fabric illustration! The poor chef probably never got to serve his dessert of little dirty birdy feet.

You are just one of the MOST creative people I know! Thanks for sharing! Very clever!

I love it! You are so clever and definitely give us fun and merriment. I said this last week, but I'll say it again. You should be writing and illustrating books!
Love the line, "Greasy, Gloppy, Gopher, Guts heaped upon a plate . . . " I noted Ms. M said you could teach us the song. Oh Goodie!!!

Fun! I'm going to read this to my 12 yr old son tonight. He'll LOVE it!

Too cute felt picture. Aren't G words the grossest :) .

Thanks for the giggle! Great G post :) .

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

LOL! I actually remember singing this song/rhyme as a child that had the words "greasy grimy gopher guts" in it ...
"Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts,
Mutilated monkey meat
Dirty little birdie feet.
Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts,
And me without my spoon!"


We jumped rope sining it and other funny songs!
