Noodles and Cake

Here is a song I made up recently for the amusement of my Landlord's daughter, with no apologies to Dennis Lee. If anything, Dennis Lee should apologize to me.

"Noodles and cake,
Noodles and cake,
If I don’t get some,
I think I’m going to ache.
Take away my whiskey, take away my steak,
But don’t take away my noodles and cake."

Part of this poem is not true, of course. I don't care if you give away my steak. Like the rest of my species, I'm a vegetarian! As stated in my profile, my favorite foods are bananas, peanut-butter sandwiches, and steel-cut oatmeal.

If you took away my whiskey, though, that would be another story. I would probably throw a fit. So don't do it.
