Here comes the holiday season, lot's of good eatin' and sure-as-shootin', there will a bunch of choking going on at the dinner tables across America. So, I got to thinking about what the statistics might reveal.


Who chokes more
The woman or man,
Fat or skinny?
Ask the statis-tishan,
Anecdotal evidence
Is a bit unreliable,
While restaurants worry
If they will be liable.

The Heimlich maneuver
Will save quite a few,
But some choke so bad
There’s not a thing you can do,
While they retch and they rasp
With hands clutching their throat,
The medical examiner will say
“Buddy, that’s all she wrote”.
