P is for Porridge Pot

Cleaning the porridge pot is not for the meek
It takes special cleaning staff,
Separating the strong from the weak
Like separating wheat from chaff,

So gummy and sticky, you could use it for glue
That porridge is amazing gloop,
You could fix up the sole on that old busted shoe
Or make some Porridge soup,

Off it goes into the compost bin
But wait, don’t be so hasty,
I’ve heard porridge is good for the skin
And the remnants are very tasty,

Pease Porridge Hot or Pease Porridge Cold
I won't clean a dirty pot that's nine days old!


  1. FUNNY -- I related as well. Can you imagine a pot that is nine days old?

    1. Can you just imagine, Carol? UGH! I always found that nursery rhyme strange imagining them eating porridge that old. I find it bad enough on the day it's made.

  2. Hahaha. We don't make porridge, but I just had the vision of 9-day-old porridge combined with a facial. *shudder*

    1. Great for the skin, Loni after it's congealed and gone crusty! You should try it! I'm not a huge porridge fan but Hubs loves it as it appeals to his Scottish ancestry and sense of cheapness.

  3. Nice, Yes I've had many a moment when that pot has driven me crazy. Hot water, soap and a good soaking usually does the trick.

    1. It is a gross thing to clean, isn't it Suzy? One of my less favourite cleaning jobs and I don't even eat the stuff!

  4. Yuk. That looks like a job, Suzy.


    1. It's pretty brutal but I'm tough and can handle it.

  5. :O That looks brutal and tough.. I pity my mom and others who face this daily

    Smile, it makes (y)our day!

  6. Hahaha! Good one. ☺ Yes, oatmeal makes a great facial.
