 TAMPA, Fla., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- "Roses are red, violets are blue, send them manure if they are untrue."
 A Florida-based company offers a unique way to express yourself to bossy bosses, crabby colleagues, dead-beat dads, false friends and jerky jokesters. A fun way to communicate with nutty neighbors, reactive relatives and lousy lovers. It's 100 percent sun-dried manure -- naturally shaped by a veterinarian-certified team of Sunshine State horses and cows.
 Recycled, preserved and creatively repackaged, the manure mirrors long-stemmed roses, corsages, sandwiches, bakery goods and other more traditional fare.
 Environmentally -- if not politically -- correct, the contents of Tongue in Cheek's baskets, bouquets and bushels are treated to ensure they are pest-free. And they're packaged to enrich, er, surprise, recipients with colorful cellophane, bows and ribbons.
 For gift-givers whose emotions cloud their ability to find the right words, the gag gift company includes targeted poetry created by in-house humorists who've been there. From an inventory of several dozen whimsical verses, you can select a priceless piece of poetic justice or have a new, wackier version created to express a specific sentiment. Poems and jingles are categorized to mark life events: kiss-offs, birthday's, illnesses, retirement, Valentine's and other holidays. Or, choose a witty rhyme to express your feelings about a recipient's behavior: cheaters, gossips, goofy golfers, teachers who can't teach; attorneys who charge too much, practical jokers who need a wake-up call.
 Tongue In Cheek manure gifts, priced from $10 for a single brown rose to $100 for bushelsful of meadow muffins, are sent anonymously. That's a company promise.
 So, ventilate today by calling 800-332-KISS to order from Tongue in Cheek's manure line. Choose a Long Stemmed Single or Dubious Dozen Roses; a Kiss-Off Small Golden Single or Colossal-size Cow Pie; a Bushel, Half-Bushel or Bucket of Nag's Nuggets; or a "You-Are-What-You- Eat" Picnic Basket with Meadow Muffin Sandwich, Derriere Water and appropriate utensils.
