I passed a sand lot yesterday, Some kids were playing ball. I strolled along the third base line Within the fielder's call."Say, what's the score?" I asked.He yelled to beat the stuffing,"There's no one out, the bases full,They're winning forty-two to nothing!"

"You're getting beat, aren't you my friend?"And then in no time flatHe answered, "No, sir, not as yet!Our side hasn't been up to bat!"
