"Back to back they faced each other..."

I love this little ditty that I use often when someone tells me something off the cuff or one of my kids say something in reverse.......


"Back to back, they faced each other."

"Drew their swords and shot each other."


Totally absurd .....but so appropriate.

      I should make note that I didnt come up with this saying….. I read it ages ago….somewhere, dammed if I know where. the rest of the thing goes like this…… (but I never say it as it is soooooo wrong these days with politically correctness etc…..any way here it is…dont shoot the messenger tho.

      back to back they faced each other drew their swords and shot each other

      One fine day in the middle of the night,
      Two dead boys got up to fight,
      Back to back they faced each other,
      Drew their swords and shot each other,

      One was blind and the other couldn’t, see
      So they chose a dummy for a referee.
      A blind man went to see fair play,
      A dumb man went to shout “hooray!”
      A paralysed donkey passing by,
      Kicked the blind man in the eye,
      Knocked him through a nine inch wall,
      Into a dry ditch and drowned them all,

      A deaf policeman heard the noise,
      And came to arrest the two dead boys, If you don’t believe this story’s true,
      Ask the blind man he saw it too!
