There Was An Old Man From Peru - JAMES D. WITMER

This quote was added by johnmichael6688
There was an old man from Peru who dreamed he was eating his shoe. When he woke in a fright in the dark of the night he found it was perfectly true. You may think that this story's absurd but there is more to the tale that I heard. He had skipped all his meals with a healthy-food feel and filled up on only dessert! Now a man who eats nothing but sweets will get hungry again while he sleeps. So with nothing to do he tried gnawing his shoe and woke again hungry and mean.
