confetti or spaghetti?

We are having fun with our poetry unit.  This week we looked at limericks (I admit, not the most sublime of all poetry, but loads of fun nonetheless).

Here's one we all contributed to; but we can't decide on the ending.

There's the happy ending:
There once was a young girl named Betty
Who befriended a hairy old yeti.
They married that night,
What a beautiful sight!
The snow - it danced like confetti.

Or not:
There once was a young girl named Betty
Who befriended a hairy old yeti.
They married that night,
Then had a big fight,
On his head she dumped her spaghetti.

What do you think: confetti or spaghetti?

Keep both - & Choose Your Own Ending depending on how you're feeling? (A touch of post modernism to your poetry!)

I like the confetti, but spagetti is more in keeping with the limerick tradition, so my vote is for spagetti.

Alison has a good idea, keep both, maybe tweak one slightly so they are more different.

I go for spaghetti. Neater construction.
