I think that Number 4 is still my fave with 62 in second place.

How many times can one vote?

I'd give the top spot to number 62. It's original (the only Confucian wish). A tasty bite like a fortune cookie. It has a double entendre, perfect for humor. And it has good advice since sex is the best remedy. ;-)

Other contenders (honorable mentions in my book) go to:
#22 for the unusual twist of considering the horse's plight and introducing the Bella/novella rhyme.

# 41 for imagining Bella's present situation and putting a bedpan to good use, in aid of Miss Snark.

and
#76 for offering a double dactyl with an original word (required for a true double dactyl)-humerobotomy.

WOW! Congrats to everyone who submitted and a great big thanks to those who wrote my personal favorites.

I missed this one, dammit. Oh well, I'll say it anyway:

Ms Bella would have better from a Falabella fell-a.

#62 for me!

Oops. I forgot about #4. I'd add that to my honorable mentions. It is off-kilter/wacky and has a little age humor (which some of us love & fear).

I vote for #4.

I like #45. Though it's tame, I always prefer poems that contain words like screwed and nantucket, or at least one sonofabi#$%. #45 is on the right track to ruining Snark's keyboard.
