The Sonnet You Didn't Know You Wanted!

Hola Bitcholas,

Yesterday was 'Big Dummy' day and one of the questions had something to do with Shakespearean sonnets. I have a very vague recollection of learning something about that in high school but, for the life of me, couldn't remembered why it mattered.  

Several listeners chimed in to remind us what a sonnet was...and I've already forgotten what it is...something about 14 lines and a rhyming pattern...blah, blah, blah. Anyway, listener Meghan sent us this custom sonnet:

Snickers and s'mores! I have a sonnet for you. Since Miles reads a poetic interpretation of the news each day, I figured you'd enjoy a silly one about the show. 
 

From fair Virginia West, Miles loves his booze

and words that are too hard for to Ted to say,

Steve loves the Ravens, thought they always lose;

Weed Week once got Mike lost in time and space. 

 

So these four gents came to Seattle fair

to buzz our ears with that which rocks and rolls,

with jokes so bad they're not fit for these air-

waves, and many types of Men's Room polls. 
 

So raise a glass to serious and to funny,

and Men's Room Red, because we think it's yummy.​"


I feel more cultured.

Until tomorrow, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!
