There was a young lady named Perkins,
Who had a great fondness for gherkins;
She went to a tea
And ate twenty-three,
Which pickled her internal workin's.

Limericks can bring a moan or a smile, but always get our attention, anticipation for that last line.

There was a young fella named Billy, Who wrote a fun poem that was silly. He attached not his name, So he never knew fame, Though his lim'rick is used Willy-nilly.

LOVE IT , LOVE IT. LOVE IT! Of course my favorite would not make the cut on this elegant blog. .....but it's about an exceedingly droll lady and a Parker house roll.
