I put one of my favorite jokes to rhyme.
Quasi Moto was a legend
who became a man of fame.
This crippled man was known as
The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Quasi Moto’s health was failing.
He was old and growing frail,
so they hired an apprentice
he would teach to ring the bell.
This poor apprentice fellow
really wasn’t very bright,
but at least he was determined
he could learn to do it right.
They climbed up to the bell tower.
(A steep climb that isn’t fun)
And finally reached the iron bell
for lesson number one.
Quasi told him, “Push the bell..
then step aside.. and let it go,”
but the bell came back and struck him
because he was so slow.
It knocked him from the tower
and he landed in town square.
Quasi slowly limped down all the stairs
and found him lying there.
The townsfolk had all gathered.
Quasi pushed till he got through.
As he looked down a fellow asked..
“Quasi…is this a man you knew?”
Quasi looked at his apprentice
and slowly answered “Well……
I can’t say I really knew him
but his face sure rings a bell.”
