If you are out of antacid, go blow a fireman. I think that’s in the scout handbook.

The caption is so funny that I suspect they were making a joke based on the advert. Possibly.

I guess, sucking on the hose may help.

There was a young fireman named Vern
Who claimed he could ease your heartburn.
“Take my hose in your mouth,
You’ll feel better down south”.
Looks like some folks will never learn.

There was young fireman who hailed from the south,
Who came in a young lady’s mouth,
It was a total surprise,
And she crossed both her eyes,
For he did so in quantities quite routh.

For they whom a Dictionary is a posession.

Two gay blokes have been out on the town until late. When they get back to the Hotel they are staying at, reception is closed, and they don’t have their keys. So they climb up the fire escape to gain access to their room.

One says: “OH! This makes me feel like a Fireman.”

The other one replies: ‘Don’t be a silly boy! You’ll never find one at this time of night.’

There once was a young man Louth,
Who came in a young lady’s mouth,
She said “You’re a cad.
And a very bad lad,”
Now do it again three feet to to south.

EDIT: from Louth (coises) I had to search high and low for that rhyme.

The bold advertisers of Gaviscon
Enlisted a guy with a helmet on.
Their command of the argot
Was wide of the target
Hence the double-entendre we comment on.

There was a young man from down South
Who invited a French girl to his house
He cried, oh dear Madelon!
When you swallowed that Gaviscon
It’s like a Fireman came in your mouth

Isolated from COVID-19
I sit, typing this crap on my screen.
My ideal kind of fun
Is to work in a pun
But, try as I might, I really can’t think of one right now that would scan or rhyme..

Alternate last line:
Innuendo, if you know what I mean.

A wayward young man’s heart was sore
So he went to his local drugstore
He said, “Gaviscon please
I’ll bend down on my knees
For I’ve nothing to offer but jaw”

@DnT 0044.

I thought, “innuendo” was an Italian insult.

A promiscuous young lady named Gore,
Found she was getting quite sore,
So she thought it’d be fine,
To make the boys lie supine,
And give them a nibble or four.

When Gaviscon spews from a bottle
Comes time to spurt hard, not to throttle
‘Cause that peppermint tonic
Is wholly hedonic
When hosing regions epiglottal

There was an advertising writer named Kent,
Whose command of the vernacular was bent,
At writing common use,
He was quite a goose,
For he totally and utterly confused came and went.
