Cooking á la Donner
There was once a young reindeer called Donner
Who could never sit still in a corner (it really depended on the corner, though).
His favourite food was Kebab in a platter (a big one!)
Which he would get take-away from McHutter.
The other reindeers all called him chubby,
But he argued he was just big and fluffy.
He was the first in the kitchen to help Mrs Claus
For he loved how the food got stuck in his dew-claws.
When she started making the batter,
He rushed-in to engage in the spatter.
He grabbed the big knife,
The food on the counter to slice.
He was so enthusiastic and bright,
Simply carrying on in his excite.
Chopping away he went,
Not really caring what got spent.
Mrs Claus turned to see how the process was going,
For a reindeer with a knife in hand may seem a bit ironic (not for Donner though!).
Tomatoes were chopped and so was the lettuce,
Potatoes in oven and so was the Angus (yes, the burger).
Stuffing was ready to make the pies,
This was the best part of cooking for all the guys.
Mrs Claus stood aside watching all proud,
How her “little” helper had grown-up so endowed.
The pies were ready to place in the oven,
Donner even felt he had started to hover!
He lit up a match to light up the furnace,
But the gas was already on and BOOM went the premise!
