Once was a jester who sat on a stoolSick and blue and losing his cool He let out a sneeze His balloon caught the breezeNow he wonders why fate was so cruel
Ha ! A Limerick ! My scrabble buddy is a Limerick wizard; she can bust one out for any occasion or tailor it to a person's name on a whim. Pretty amazing. Love that pentameter.
I heard there's some kind of limerick contest. You ought to get your buddy to enter it. They give you a topic and a time limit, and then pick a winner after the buzzer blows. It seems fun.
She's 70 years old, doesn't have a computer, but I will let her know such a thing exists & she'll be thrilled to hear that limericks are alive & well.
I think you actually have to go there, to the competition. I didn't think you could do it online, but these days, who knows.
