Classy Comments from my Autograph Book, circa 1950's

The talent of young teenagers.
Just been browsing through two old autograph books.   Such enlightening stuff I haven't read for ages!   Here are a few of them.

"A little brown bunny
was sitting on the dunny
waiting for his mummy
to come and wipe his bummy".

"She bent to pick a budding rose
a budding rose so tender.
She bent a little bit too far
and bang! went her suspender".

Roses are red, violets are blue,
Orchids are 25 bob*
will dandelions do?
* a "bob" was a shilling in the old currency -
 10 cents, so 25 bob was $2.50.

Did you know?
In Connecticut, USA, it is illegal to walk across the street on your hands.

From the internet.

"We stopped for 10 minutes every 2 hours to stretch our legs.   I didn't stretch mine, as they seemed long enough".
