Your turn: submit a limerick

I can't think of anything good for today's post, so it's up to you, readers.

Today's assignment: submit a limerick.

It could be an old favorite, or if you're in need of a challenge, submit one of your own.....

  1. I would feel a lot better about putting up a limerick here if I had been classy enough to post a haiku several days earlier. However, as my excuse, I will say that since I have driven past the actual building in County Limerick, Ireland in 1996 where limericks were invented, and I have not yet gone past the matsubayashi where the haiku originated, I am more qualified to post limericks. I will state two, to make up for no haiku. The first one is a famous one quoted by the wonderful Matilda in Roald Dahl's marvelous book:

    An epicure dining at Crewe
    Found a rather large mouse in his stew.
    Said the waiter, "Don't shout
    And wave it about
    Or the others'll be wanting one too!"

    This second one is a limerick that I made up as a young boy, and entered into a limerick contest being held at my local library - I never heard anything from them. Jerks.

    There was an old judge who was short.
    He once was heard to retort:
    "How it aches my behind
    To have to decline
    From a stack of law books in court!"

  3. Thank you very kindly. Your words are better than a silly paper award from a library any day!
