You Know What I Like?

Limericks. I like limericks a lot. And not just the ones that start out “There once was a man from Nantucket…” (although those are always good for a bawdy chuckle). I like to compose limericks. I went through a phase in high school where I wrote limericks about “Ralph the Wonder Llama” on my English teacher’s board until there was not a single iota of space left on it.

J.R. Nelson – if perchance you are reading this, I apologize for covering your classroom with drivel about fictional llamas. I couldn’t help it.

Half the fun of a limerick is that it’s supposed to be a dirty joke; however, since I promised my boss’s boss that I wouldn’t disgrace myself or our organization by posting disgustingly inappropriate content on the interwebz, here is a boring, clean limerick for Fridays. (Holy run-on sentence, Batman.) This is inspired by a game I like to play called “find a picture on Google images and write a poem about it.”

In this case, I already had the funny picture. Here’s the limerick.

For a canine my dog is quite odd
His nose seems like nothing to laud,
For the shoes where he rests
Are disgusting at best
But it doesn’t disturb him, the sod!

Love, peace, and poetic entertainment,
Sumiko

PS If you want a dirty joke limerick, just let me know and I’d be happy to write one for you. 🙂
