    The waitress didn’t want to listen to their queries about her love life, but she knew better than to accuse Cyrano of being “nosy.”

    I know that litter has always been a thing, but that urn looks expensive. It’s like seeing the streets of New York littered with iphones, after all!

    I see big & doofy never learned the first rule of picking a wingman: make sure he’s less good looking than you are.

    Gretel knew it took two to make eye contact, and she wasn’t going to be one of those two with either grinning Bert or foppish Ernie.

    They both thought of the taverner’s daughter / as a lovely young lamb to the slaughter. / They were vulgar and rude / when she brought them their food, / and enraged when for drink she poured water. /// One leered, “Girl, come and see my Big Tip!” / While the other implored her to strip. / They slandered her service, / but what made her nervous / was the threat to return with a whip. /// Through it all she was coy and demure. / She knew well how to handle a boor. / She stayed silent and shy / and would not meet their eye, / for she’d sprinkled their stew with manure.

    “Have you ever considered, my dear/ the joys of a film career ?/ You’re too pretty by far/ to toil in this bar -/ and my carriage is parked rather near…/// I can offer you wealth and fame/ for I’m big in the movie game/ you’ll be O, so much richer/ just abandon that pitcher/ – by the way – Harvey Weinstein’s my name..”

    The inn on the village green/ was not noted for fine cuisine/ yet even so/ Twas the place to go/ for the young barmaid’s breasts could be seen/// It attracted a coarse clientele/ by employing this bounteous belle/ whose visible nips/ assured generous tips / and the lady displayed them well…/// (but I’m leaving it here for now/ for Ahab has called from the bow/ where he’s spotted a whale/ (or perhaps an email)/ so my absence I hope you’ll allow..)

    Unable to find a date, D’Artagnan would go out drinking with his mother. Not surprisingly, this did not impress the waitress!

    This wine you’ve brought is corked / So my dear, you won’t be getting porked / by either the Duke or the Viscount of York!

    I don’t have a problem with that / but I kind of fancy the hat / If you’d give it to me / I’ll try not to pee / in your still cooking order of brats*

    Mispronunciation of brats to make this rhyme brought to you by Artistic License and my unwillingness to think any harder about this lame effort.

    Suave Aramis had drunk to his fill, / meanwhile Porthos (in mufti) was still / flirting with the cute wench, / and inside, by the bench, / tipsy Athos was stuck with the bill.
