Tackiest Baby Shower Poem

THIS IS NOT ME!!!!  GEEZ.  LOL


http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=132702.0

So there's this girl, lets call her Sue. Sue and I aren't friends. Her friend is friend's with my friend. We went to high school together and since our last names are close in alphabetical order I'm guessing we sat near each other at graduation. Sue is expecting her first baby. I think she's due sometime next month.

Well, I ended up being invited to her baby shower last month, but it was being held on the weekend we were out of town. Plus again, we don't really know each other, so I declined to go and also didn't bother to send a gift. 

So I got a post card. There's a poem. Oh ehell....you're gonna love this.

We're so sorry you missed the shower!

There was fun and games to be had
The food drinks not too bad
The loot was a pleanty
But we looked high and low and found none from you
Not even a shiny penny!


Babies need a lot
Of this fact we all know
So we've included some shops below!

If none are too your liking, and that we understand
Then grab a pen and get to writing
For checks are to our liking!


The Sue family is registered at these stores, and checks can be mailed to this address. Thanks!

So lets be clear, someone I don't know well got pregnant, I didn't attend the shower, so I got a bad poem instructing me to send the baby something. Even a shiny penny! Which sounds like a terrible gift for an infant. Surely that's a chocking hazard?

I checked in with my friend who did attend the shower and did bring a gift. She got a follow up card as well. Slightly different her's read:

We loved seeing you at the shower
Remember how the gifts they did tower?
We sorted them for hours

Upon sifting and sorting we noticed something amiss
For your gift didn't match the list

To fix your situation we listed our stores below
But a check could also help us flow!


She told me her gift wasn't extravagant, just some baby basics, which apparently was not appropriate. Neither of us plan on doing much of anything, excepting waiting to see what the follow up poems say. Can you threaten someone in rhyme? Pay up or your rear is mine? (no idea what they meant by flow, I think that ran out of way to say pay up and still rhyme)
