FISHING NUDE

ONE TIME, I WAS FISHING OFF THE TOP OF A ROCK IN THE
COLORADO RIVER. WELL, FISHING WAS NO GOOD ON THE
SIDE I WAS ON. SO, I JUMPED ACROSS, BUT I DIDN'T
MAKE IT TO THE OTHER SIDE, AND I FELL IN. FINALLY,
I GOT OUT AND UP ON THE SHORE, AND MY CLOTHES WERE
ALL WET. SO, I DECIDED TO TAKE MY CLOTHES OFF. I
PUT THEM ON A ROCK TO DRY. I DECIDED TO START
FISHING AGAIN WHILE THEY WERE DRYING. SO, I WAS
UP ON A ROCK WITHOUT MY CLOTHES WHEN A GAME WARDEN
CAME BY, AND HE ARRESTED ME FOR FISHING WITHOUT
A LICENSE.

Little Miss Bright

There was a young girl named Miss Bright,
Who could travel much faster than light.
She departed one day,
In an Einsteinian way,
And came back on the previous night.

 

Submitter comment:

This verse is one remembered from high school days (1968) in a physics class. Its meaning lies in Einstein's theory of relativity and the fact that if one goes faster than velocity of light, one will go back in time.
