Limericks

I love *limericks. A friend of mine sent this one to me this morning. I just can't help myself, so I'm gonna' share this with all of you. All I can say is, I wish I wrote it 'cause I think it's really funny. 

There once was a pervert named Weiner,
Who had a perverted demeanor,
Forced from the hill
for acting like Bill,
Now Congress is one Weiner leaner.

HA!

I know what you're all probably thinking; enough of the Weiner jokes already.

*For those of you who are more literary types I've provided an FYI: Limerick is an Irish word that dates back to 1896. The definition of a limerick according to Webster's Collegiate Dictionary: a light or humorous verse form of 5 chiefly anapestic (metrical) verses of which lines 1,2, and 5 are of 3 feet (metrical), and lines 3 and 4 are of 2 feet (metrical) wth a rhyme scheme of aabba.

Suggestion: Try your hand at writing a limerick on any topic. I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

A blogger named Pam is so lucky

that her life in New York
is just ducky.

With a barn full of horses

As her natural resources

She’s bound to get rich on
Horse Pucky.
