Wow...well done Robert...Although I was a big fan of David Licata's lyric as well.

David Licata

Awww, schucks.

Yours was very funny as well. All were deserving of an all-expense paid trip to Vermont for real ice cream. New York Super Fudge Chunk.... yummm.....

Yes, I enjoyed all the entries. We should have another lyric-writing contest.

My muse was the great food writer M.F.K. Fisher, whose works I'm now reading. Most of her stuff is about the wonders of food and those who prepare it, but she does describe the effects of a bad oyster thus:

"He felt faint, and cold fingers whuddered over his skin, so that he reeled and shivered. Then he was sick, violently and often. He could barely lift his head, for the weakness and the dreadful cramps in his belly. His bowels surged, so that he felt they would drain his very heart out of him. And, God, he was thirsty, thirsty.... I'm dying, he thought, and even in his woe he regretted it, and did not believe it. But he died."

Have fun at all the summer's picnics and barbeques, everyone!
