R.I.P. The Rip Van Winkle Story By Larry B Dec 2010

Now, here’s the story of Rip Van Winkle
The true story, not the lie
They always want to hide the truth
I’ll just never understand why

You see, Rip Van Winkle was married
To a woman, who always nagged
And that poor dude was bored all the time
Cause his internet always lagged

So, he climbed up in his recliner
And decided to take a little nap
When, out of the blue, the Sleeping Spider
Went and crawled up in his lap

Now, Rip knew about that spider
But still, he just couldn’t resist
For if he let that spider bite him
They’d be no “honey do” list

Well, that spider sunk his fangs in
Then jumped back on the floor
It wasn’t long, Rip closed his eyes
And man, that guy could snore

Now, a wicked smile even crossed his face
As he leaned back in his chair
For, when he awoke, she’d would be gone
But Rip, just simply didn’t care

Well a hundred years just flew by
And his wife was surely dead
But when he finally opened his eyes
She lay beside him in the bed

She awoke while still clutching
“The list” for a hundred years
For the spider had bitten her also
And it brought the man to tears

But this story has a happy ending
Cause dial-up was a thing of the past
They decided to finally get broadband
And his internet was fast at last
