“And so, Mr. Lennon,” said the Chairman of the school board’s committee on Bringing Healthy Foods into the Cafeterias, “you need to work on introducing more meats and vegetables into your school. As Chief Cook and Bottle Washer, you are the man in charge of obtaining the groceries, are you not?”
“I am,” said Mr. Lennon. “I am also responsible for making sure I buy groceries the children are likely to eat. You have on the list,” and here Mr. Lennon unfolded a sheet of paper and propped up his spectacles on the bridge of his nose, “pork chops, chicken, carrots, corn, and broccoli.” He looked up from his paper and frowned at the Chairman. “And now there is another thing you’d like me to add to this horrendous list?”
The Chairman cleared his throat and leaned his elbows upon his desk.
“All we are saying, Mr. Lennon, is give peas a chance.”

Ha, funny! 🙂
Groan…. (as in ha ha groan, not peculiar groan)
I’m happy with a groan. 🙂
I wonder how many people under the age of 25 will get it? Do you realise that song is already 45 years old?
No, I didn’t realize that. And I’m so glad you took the time to remind me how old I am. That’s not funny.
Haha! Hey, I was alive when it came out, too. … and yes, I was a little depressed myself. 😛
Glad it made you laugh – sorry for the groan. 😉
:P…. Forget –
…all the people??
sorry that was meant to be pea-pills
Hahahahaha! Very clever my dear. 😀
*groans* Really? Really, really?
Good word play, but *groans*…
Some things a gal just can’t resist. 😀
