Thought for today

Thinking today about my friend Lee's blog entitled 'A Curate's Egg', I wondered if his title refers to his blog, or to something else. I came up with this in haiku form:
Life's a curate's egg
You can eat or you can starve
Which do you prefer?
I hope you'll forgive my working with your idea, Lee.

Go for it Judith. The title originates from a Punch cartoon of long ago.

Thanks Lee. Being English, and the age I am, the original cartoon is part of my upbringing and culture. Indeed, I have a bound collection of Punches of 1895 in the house with me now! But I was glad to be reminded of it when I first found your website. I wondered whether to show the cartoon with my post, but thought that would be going a bit far in terms of borrowing. Let 'em google if they don't know the reference, say I!

Life's curate's egg
Good and bad
God laughs.

(Einstein said "if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans").
