Bert's Joke of the Month
 
A Redneck's Valentine Poem!
Some men, they buy chocolate for Valentine's Day;
 They git it at Wal-Mart; It's romantic that way.
 
 Some men git roses on that special day,
From the cooler at Kroger. "That's impressive," I say.
 
Some men buy fine diamonds from a flea market booth.
 "Diamonds are forever," they explain, suave and couth.
 
But for this man, honey, these will not do.
 For you are too special, you sweet thang you.
 
 I got you a gift, without taste nor odour,
Better than diamonds, it's a new trollin' motor.
