Kenny had a camera and took pictures while we ate.
I thought it might be fun to use my food to decorate.
I grabbed a brown banana peel and used it for a wig,
dangled French fries from my nose and snorted like a pig.
I took some veggies from my tray and stuck them in my ears.
I knew that I looked funny ’cause the room soon filled with cheers.
But best at being funny was my teacher, I suppose,
’cause when she looked and laughed at me, milk came out her nose.
