Planet Bling

A woman who felt she'd been had
looked down at her ring and was sad.
They'd found one bigger,
not with a digger.
Now planet bling is the most rad.

  1. That woman must be a little glad
    As her finger would be quite sad
    If that planet was on it
    Because it be squashed a bit
    And she curse some poor lad

  6. No WAY -- that IS rad.

    And funny, my daughter asked me earlier, rhetorically, if maybe hte biggest gold nugget is still undiscovered. This post makes me think maybe there is a whole gold planet somewhere. Hey -- why not?? the Universe is freaking amazing.
