Questions - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns

If a cow lies down upon it's back
And lifts it's hooves up in the air,
Does the cream rise up to the top?
Will you find Cool Whip in there?

If Clem Kadiddlehopper happened to meet
Crazy Guggenheim along the way,
And they both ran into Foster Brooks
Would they remember it the very next day?

If "Mind your P's and Q's" are said to teach
Children to say thank you and please,
Who goofed up on their alphabet?
It should be mind your P's and T's!

Where did the term Flea Market come from?
Is it a market where you can buy fleas?
And why would you pay a penny for them?
My collie has enough for free.

Where did the word Algebra come from?
Did a lady go fishing with her brasserie?
Maybe she only caught green algae.
A jock strap works better my dear.

Have you wondered why movie critics
Knock the starlets of the screen today?
They are remembered by their knockers.
Hasn't it always been this way?

I think it time to end this here
And can only write two more lines.
I have to cook some spaghetti.
Where that comes from, I'll ask next time.
