Random Poem:

Most dumped boyfriend (found poem)

It is reliably reported that Arnold Westlake
(originally of Basingstoke, UK)
has been dumped a total of 973 times
in the past five years.
Despite him being a self-confessed 'sweet-guy'
and 'good husband material'
with a 'fondness for starting a family',
Mr Westlake's serial dumpings continue
to surprise and confuse him, especially
as 734 of those dumpings were from the same women,
a Ms Mary Mary of Reading, Berkshire. When asked
to confirm figures, Ms Mary angrily enquired
who the other women dumping him were,
and added: 'No one dumps Arnold but me -
it's all over between us.
