Mud Butte is an unincorporated South Dakota community near the Black Hills. Laetitia and her group went hiking in Mount Rushmore National Park and went to happy hour and dinner in Rapid City before returning to Mud Butte for the evening. During happy hour the bartender, who happened to live in Mud Butte, told Laetitia a story that he ended with, “Every small town has at least one.” It became the limerick of the day.
Young Rochelle was both shapely and cute
And attractive to boys in Mud Butte
But decidedly wild
And quite often with child
And, some said, a bit less than astute.
