Laugh Out Loud


SATURDAY CENTUS
asks us to laugh out loud

LAUGH OUT LOUD
(An Acrostic)

Laugh out loud! It's medicine, as everybody knows;
A giggle starts up in your head and flows down to your toes.
Ugliness departs if you can guffaw with a will.
Get relief from chuckling and not from a little pill.
Have a snigger, snort or wheeze; laughter puts us at our ease.

ZEST!

Which came first? The chicken or the egg?
(Please don't send a reply, I beg!)
But which came first regarding zest?
And which is the meaning you like best?
In cooking we make great use of it;
It adds the final zingy bit!
Orange peel  that's grated fine
Adds a tang that's quite divine.
But we also like to say
'I feel full of zest today!'
Did someone leap about and cry
'I'm so energetic I could fly!
I'll use the word that's used for fruit!
Zest! I think that's rather cute!'
I'm so intrigued that I could burst!
Which, dear Reader, was invented first?
