A Nailbiting, Finger Lickin' Tale

When I put the finger in my mouth to bite,
I purposefully give the children a fright.
Their young faces, they turn pale,
When I start to crunch into the nail.
The unsettling snap of teeth on bone,
Makes them jump like the ring of a phone.
As I'm chewing on the digit,
The unnerving sound makes the kiddiewinks fidget.
They say "Daddy we won't sleep tonight,
we're frightened, we witnessed an awful sight."
I tell them all -  "Don't be daft,
They're just chocolate fingers made by Kraft."

PS: As a postscript I should disclose, don't use these fingers to pick your nose.

Biscuit: Cadbury Fingers
Taste test: 8 out of 10
Cost: £1.00 from Tesco in Lymington


  1. How about getting 5 chocolate fingers and putting them up your sleeves and then eating them all at once - that really sends the children crazy.

  2. eight out of ten, that's a very good score.
    After i've eaten one, i always want more.
    my only problem is they are slightly too small,
    which is probably why, i devour them all.

    1. Don't be such a greedy pig, savour one and give the rest to Jig!
