I know this one!
Why torment kids with this stuff?
Maybe that’s why I turned out the way I did.
Did this little book of horrors also include:
The chief defect of Henry King was chewing little bits of string
At last he swallowed some which tied
itself in ugly knots inside
Or the lady who pointed to a bust of Venus De Milo and told her child:
“That’s what happens if you bite your nails”
