Top Ten In Pencil Not Pen!

It seems everywhere you go there is some list all set up in a nice neat row. The top ten things to eat. The top ten ways to clean your feet. The top ten movies this year. The top ten ways to wipe your rear. They just show and show. Let's make them eat crow.

A top ten list,
Not to be missed.
Raises your eyes,
Become more wise.

Who really cares,
If your food has hairs.
The top ten places to eat,
Beats top ten ways to wash your feet.

Maybe the feet thing would work,
If in Betsy's toe thing you lurk.
But back on point,
Toward each top ten joint.

This top ten says on thing,
That one gives another ring.
This one gives another one.
Aren't top tens fun?

Each top ten list,
That can't be missed,
Has a top ten not the same.
Each making a different top ten claim.

On the very same thing.
Like giving food a ring.
Top ten to lose weight.
All give a different plate.

When you just have to eat less, move more.
I guess top two has a bad ring at ones shore.
Have to have that top ten.
But wait! It is not written in pen.

The top ten will change.
That is not strange.
Found a new one.
Now it is a top twenty run.

Or maybe still top ten,
We got rid of the hen.
That was not tops in the first place.
A false top ten case?

People like pretty numbers,
With brains like cucumbers.
Top ten ways to top that.
Whack one over the head with a bat.

Ready to make a top ten list? You could make people pissed. They might be mad if your top ten list is different from another pad. Top ten ways to piss people off. Hmm 100's of ways to make them scoff. But the cat will save that for another pass with my top one little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

    More often than not they are just lame
    Just going for the record
    Feeding the ego of sorts
    Can one be blamed for 15 mins of fame?

  2. Well, I was going to make a list of the top ten rhyming blogs, but I guess not...
    Kidding!
    Everyone's top ten is unique to them unless it deals with actual number facts.

  6. If one ever makes it to the top ten
    Be prepared and always carry a pen

  12. Is there really ten ways to clean one's feet?? I am sure there is, since there is a top ten list for everything else. So who cares, it will change in the next day. Have a great day Pat.

  13. I, too, have done top lists
    Favorite snowflakes crafters may have missed
    And because they often inquire
    Which do I most admire
    Cycling music I count down, as well
    Because I know my list will never sell
    But I've never been one to stick with ten
    When 13 or 25 is more fun at my den

  15. Ten best things about Canada
    twould be fun and give you quite
    a run.

    Your bearded ladies I adore
    maple syrup forever more

    Mounties in red so
    snappily dressed
    look better than all the rest,

    The fish you eat
    smells like feet
    but gobble it up
    you do.

    Soap made from whales
    that make you smell
    but in Winter keeps you warm
    as fat repels most every storm.

    The toothless fad
    is quite the show
    as Hockey sets
    your skin a glow.

    The Buffalo you ride
    and sit astride
    full of majesty and of pride.

    With Canadian bacon
    I am quite taken.

    Your Oompa Loompas
    are really super
    such colour leaves
    me in a stupor.

    Last but not
    least is your zombie feet

      With zombies toes galore
      Riding buffalo to your shore
      Then as the buffalo squat
      Your gardens will get fertilized a lot
      Enjoy the smell
      Bet you'll find it swell

  20. Top 10 reasons why
    I'm never #1 at your blog, though I try.
    1) I really don't try
    2) that was a lie
    3) It's not you, it's me
    4) I'm asleep when you post
    5) And you're always on a post-spree
    6) Plus Hank's always first
    7) That reason's the worst.
    8) He's done it again.
    9) Think I'll try to be number
    10) ten.
