Now, now. Don’t be snippy. Jerry’s very romantic. How else do you think he keeps a hottie like Verla? He’s considerate. He would never, for instance, allow her to be embarrassed by forgetting his birthday. He always boosts her self-esteem by allowing her to pay for meals, and he never orders anything that’s more than ten dollars more than her meal. There’s more to his poem, too:
Rub-a-dub-dub;Thanks for the grub.Grub-a-dub-dub;Let’s hit the hot tub.Blub-a-blub-blub;I’ll pretend to be a sub.Hub-a-hub-hub;And you can give it a rub.
Joy’s so jealous. Burl’s not a poet. But he is a philosopher. He asks the age-old questions, like, “What smells?” “How many HoHo’s must a man wolf down?” and “Why is this chair sticky?” He’s a good provider, though. She’ll never want for sticky notes and numbered key rings..
