moderated Romaines of the day

Bertrand Piboin
 

Since I offered in Randumb Puns a pun related to the romaine problem, here’s a little play on words on the same subject.  Posted this on FB.


ROMAINE LETTUCE NEWS:  Now that some romaine lettuce has once again been deemed safe, the romaine lettuce growers have come up with an advertising scheme to get people to buy romaine again.  They were going to use a slogan, Make American Romaine Great Again, but recent events deemed that a loser.  So, instead, they enlisted rock star Eric Clapton to sing a new song for them as follows:


If you want to dine, in or out,

In the bag, take it out, 

ROMAINE

We will get down,

Dig it out of the ground

ROMAINE


You won’t die

You won’t die

You won’t die

ROMAINE


It’s no more bad news,

You can mix it with some blue

ROMAINE

When the dip is done

You can ride it on

ROMAINE


You won’t die

You won’t die

You won’t die

ROMAINE

Some really desperate people who love romaine had it shipped all the way from Spain, but they found that the romaine in Spain is really very plain.
