Today Things Aspire To Expire!

So here at my sea we are going to look for an expiry. I mean everything has it now a days. I seems we are going through an expiry phase. What, you did not know? I guess I will have to show.

Built to last!
These are iron cast.
Oopsy expiry has passed.
We made it half assed.

That part on your car,
It can go really far.
Far is relative though,
Just so you know.

That computer you use,
Can sure amuse and abuse,
Sorry though it's gonna break.
But your money we'll still take.

A can of this or that,
Will expire years later at your mat.
That has to make it good.
Such additives are just misunderstood.

That camera you use to shoot all.
It will go up on the broken wall.
After one too many a click,
It will expire some slick.

That coupon is grand.
Use it across the land.
Whoops, you are out of luck.
Hey, it was only a buck.

It also applies to people,
Forget the pointy steeple.
When out goes the fire,
A lawyer loves to expire.

Out goes the light.
That is such a fright.
For it is our desire,
To make it expire.

Forget the one that could stay on,
Lighting the way at every lawn,
For decades and more.
We have to fleece you at your shore.

Build them to expire,
So profits rise hire.
That is the way to be.
Don't you agree?

I wonder what the cat should post at his mat? We expire when dead or unable to get out of bed? Actually should be three months after that. For we are far ahead at our mat. Even that singing wall bass was built to expire unlike my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  1. Scammers want the thing to break
    Because more money they do rake
    But all the objects here on earth
    Are doomed to die the day they birth
    Even trees, those mighty oak
    Live ninety years and then they choke
    There's one thing though that never dies
    Tiz quack grass, that is no surprise

    1. lol very true
      Everything from me and you
      To the big old tree

      Meaning we are drinking someones pee
      As all water was someones from sea to sea lol

  2. the fact that some
    have expiry when the kingdom comes
    is kinda scary, by then anything
    remotely healthy would go to mold
    and be hairy

    1. Yeah anything good
      Would expire in your hood
      The nasty stuff that can live forever
      Is an avoidable endeavor

  3. Nothing worse that discovering that a coupon has expired
    It's as if the retail companies get together and conspire

    1. haha give all a big screw you
      Flush your coupon down the loo

  4. It's a shame that the moment we buy something, it becomes outdated pretty darn fast.

  6. Nothing is made to last anymore. We are such a disposable society.

    1. That we are indeed
      Dispose and let a new one take seed

  7. So 'we are going to look for an expiry'
    Then things ought to be made to hurry
    Expiry dates ensure
    Retailers to adhere
    For stale items can lead to upset tummy

  9. I lose a computer every couple of years (I just expect it now). I also lose a Keurig once a year, usually a few days after the warrant runs out. ;)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. lol they have that timed well
      Break when the warranty has rung its final bell

      Delete
    2. My son and his wife lost theirs a few days after the warranty ran out and friends of ours did too. I think you could be a'la correct on that one. I asked the guy on the phone last time if they did it on purpose, and he sent me one free instead of at a discount. I was just jesting w/him...I was willing to pay, I love my Keurig (even if it does only last a year), but free is nice, and I said thanks! ;)

      Delete
    3. haha I guess a joke works
      I've heard they may bring perks
      But they break really fast
      They must want to make them a thing of the past

      Delete
  10. You know you've made a score,
    When it breaks down the day before
    The warranty was ready to come due;
    Corporate hq was in a hullaballoo!

  13. Everything sure does expire. Just have to take extra care of everything. Guess everyone has to make money so things do need to expire. But it sure is a pain. Have a great day Pat.

  15. Built to expire
    the pile grows higher
    as into the bin it goes.

    Land dumps we fill
    with the waste we make
    toxic run off goes into every lake.

    Such money is spent
    at both ends
    as more must be bought
    to replace what's been lost.

    Replies
    1. That is the name of the game
      Mangle and maim
      Make sure it will break
      As more toxic crap we make
      So the dough will flow
      And never slow

    2. Have you noticed how dead it is around blogger lately? Not many gamers are posting. But last week was a Bank Holiday in the UK and this week was Labour Day for the States. Lots of folks on holiday I think.

    3. Yeah August as a whole seems to be a dead month, I'd say
      It usually picks up end of September when everyone gets back in routine at their bay

  16. Chevy has recalls galore at their shore
    oh, but wait that part we have no more

  18. My husband still has the car we bought in 1994 and it is full of life time warranty parts. Every time he goes to the part store they are stunned and ask, "Do you really still have that same car?" And I still have the cast iron skillet my grandmother got as a wedding gift. Can't beat cast iron. Well, I suppose you can, but it doesn't hurt it.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. haha can beat it all day
      And it will still be useful at your bay
      WOW to the 20 year old car though
      Must have quite the miles on it at your show

  19. Yeah, nothing lasts forever. Previous generations always say that "back in their day," things like washers and dryers lasted 20 years. Now we're lucky if they last two!

  36. Oh my goodness! I totally feel they make phones, computers and cars to last not as long now... my dads hornet is a good example... that car was built like a tank and has been around for decades. Also, even though they were clunkier, phones and computers were sturdier and more long lasting too. Don't get me going on this topic, lol! ; P
