Day 1,040: Limerick Response 2.

On a number of occasions since Laetitia became a limericist, fans have sent her limericks to review.  She usually didn’t critique those she received but she often sent back a limerick response.  Here is one of those.

The limerick that you wrote shows style
And will surely your readers beguile
And will live on in fame
Like that play, “Auntie Mame,”
And the asp of the Queen of the Nile.

Day 1,039: Limerick Response 1.

On a number of occasions since Laetitia became a limericist, fans have sent her limericks to review.  She usually didn’t critique those she received but she often sent back a limerick response.  Here is one of those.

The limerick that you wrote shows pluck
And lacks coarse words that rhyme with duck
A career, I predict,
One that may addict,
May your new pursuit bring you good luck.

Day 1,038: Graduation Blues.

Graduation is one of those rare occasions when one’s middle name is read aloud, occasionally to humorous effect.  This occurred when Laetitia attended the graduation of a niece and learned when her niece’s friend, Clare Reed, crossed the stage to receive her diploma, that her middle name was Annette.

It made young Hugh blush and then bristle
When the dean read his name: Hugh Jim Bissell
Now his future seems cursed
His folks have done their worst
He’s been hit with a weird parent missile.

Day 1,037: Kentucky Day Tour:  Big Bone Lick State Park.

Laetitia led her group on a day excursion to Big Bone Lick State Park in Kentucky.  Located in Big Bone in Boone County, the park is noted for its large animal fossils from the Pleistocene, including a very large mastodon skull.  The park’s name inspired the day’s limerick.

Kentucky’s Big Bone Lick State Park
As a rude place name sets a benchmark
That no doubt will spawn verse
Either droll or perverse
By limericists off on a lark.
