APED: "wimpy"

Come up to the house for a duck dinner
you bring the ducks -- by which I mean
I am at low water
but I will gladly pay you Tuesday
for a hamburger today
or if you were to buy me a hamburger, sir,
I would see that you are favored
in your fight with the sailor
which I shall referee
and oh dear, Roughhouse has left the till open --
yes, of course, Popeye, I'll give it back
I say, Roughhouse,
here is that sixty cents I owe you

That reminds me of a story my mom tells about one of my great-uncles. It seems he had a hamburger stand in his younger days and a friend, like Wimpy, who would bum hamburgers off him. Eventually, my great-uncle tired of this, went out and dug up a bunch of nightcrawlers. He washed them up and when his friend came 'round to mooch a free burger, he fried up the worms and served them with the works.

"So how's that burger?" my great-uncle asked.

"Ohh, best burger I've ever had," the friend raved.

When the truth was revealed, the guy promptly vomited and never mooched a hamburger again.
