The Seefood Diet
From the book The Biggest Burp Ever
I’ve started on a seefood diet.
I highly recommend you try it.
You eat whatever food you see;
a grape, a crepe, a pear, a pea,
a candy cane, some bubble gum,
a piece of pie, a peach, a plum,
banana pancakes, chicken legs,
a dozen donuts, deviled eggs,
spaghetti noodles, sirloin steaks,
vanilla ice cream, birthday cakes,
a hundred pizzas, chocolate mousse,
and gallon jugs of apple juice.
The seefood diet. Just can’t beat it.
Whenever you see food, you eat it.
I’m pretty sure you won’t lose weight,
But, what the heck? The food is great!
