Clipart of a girl with long, straight hair.

Inspired by Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) of 29 March 2023, fallacy.

A straight-haired young urchin called Shirley,
Thought her lacklustre mop made her surly,
Lunchtime sandwich was thrust,
Mum said “Finish the crust,
If you do then your hair will turn curly.”

  1. My mum always said in cockney East London, Eat your crusts and you will get curly hair. I ate my crusts but never got the curls. Now I am 76 years old and the only change is the gray highlights.
