Loving you is no mis-steak, but this pun is
February 13, 2009 9:44 PM   Subscribe

Help me think of a pun or a short poem about barbecues, meat, and love.

I got my boyfriend (who loves, loves to cook, especially grilling) a card for Valentine's day with a really cool grill filled with sausages and hamburgers on the front. It's really nice and well-made, but it was originally a birthday card for a dad so I have to glue a new message on the inside. I'd like to glue a cute saying, well-written poem (preferably by a known poet), or a stupid pun on the inside that has something to do with barbecue or meat and love. All I can think of is "Loving you is no mis-steak," but I'm seriously hoping for something better.

Go purloin a sirloin, my pet,
If you'd win a devotion incredible;
And asparagus tips vinaigrette,
Or anything else that is edible.
Bring salad or sausage or scrapple,
A berry or even a beet.
Bring an oyster, an egg, or an apple,
As long as it's something to eat.
If it's food,
It's food;
Never mind what kind of food.
When I ponder my mind
I consistently find
It is glued
On food.

Wiener jokes are usually fun, if a bit childish.

Oh my God!
What the fuck, a bar-be-que Haiku?
I love you.

I'm your grill and you're my broil.

Your meat needs some heat
Scorching hot flames of desire
will make it well-done

Steak is tender,
Pork chops too,
When they're on a grill.
For my darling I love you,
And I always will.

Woo woo! Drunken poetry filter!

Remember remember this day of the year!
If you grill me some venison, it would be dear!

I'll grill you a turkey on a rotisserie thing.
One drumstick is mine but our hearts take wing!

You broil; I flip; but we both eat together.
Taste is a sense; indulging, an endeavor.

Charcoal or gas, they both generate heat.
Love dovey doodoo butter; I'll stab you if you cheat!

...and I'm spent.

Your loins are tender,
Your rump is round,
Your sausage is [insert here],
My meaty Valentine.

Roses are red
And so is raw meat
I'll have you in bed
Right after we eat.

"If God didn't mean for man to eat animals, why did he make them out of meat"?
alternative:
"If God didn't mean for man to eat animals, why did he make them out of food"?

One of these two variations was uttered by either Beavis or Butthead while working in a fast food restaurant.

Hot coals are red
Gas flames are blue
But when it comes to heat
What I want is you.

Shall I compare thee to a succulent bratwurst?
Thou art more juicy and more delicious.
