A turtle called Myrtle was crossing the road
In a state of severe trepidation,
She wanted some petrol to fill up her tank
And had spotted, of course, the Shell Station.
A lion called Brian was roaring with pain.
“Get the doctor” he called to his mummy.
"I ate a comedian for dinner last night,
And now my poor tummy feels funny."
The monkeys are planning a party tonight.
They’ve invited a few local bookies.
As well as the sandwiches, crisps and the pop,
They’ve ordered some chocolate chimp cookies.
A pony called Tony had an awful sore throat,
It was painful and hurt him of course.
The vet sat him down and said “How do you feel?”
“I’m feeling a little bit hoarse.”
A poor little frog sat and cried by a stream
With a face that was red as a poppy.
“And why are you crying my poor little friend?”
“I’m feeling so very unhoppy.”
And this is the end of these jokes for today
I hope you have found them amusing.
You may have worked hard to fathom them out
Perhaps they were very confusing!
