For Warren

There was a young man from Madras
Whose balls were made out of brass.
When he twitched them together
They played "Stormy Weather,"
And lightning shot out of his ass.

EDIT

Swearing Mother had a great idea to start a limerick meme. So, she is tagged. Can't wait to hear hers.

RC, you're next.

Aims, you, too.

Warren, share with Marcia or something.

Sarah, like father like daughter. Lay something on us.

Oh, man, would I love to hear the story behind this!

I snorted when I read this!! A good one!

RC, it's just a little something my dad taught me. Warren got a new dog who is going to lose his goolies this summer. He said he considered getting him some brass neuticals, so I had to share this wonderful number with him. And you.

Aims, glad to make you snort. A snort a day, I say.

HA! Can I use that on the air?
On second thought...

Amy said...

Warren, I think that's between you and the FCC.

Swearing Mother said...

Oh PLEASE, let's have a Limerick Meme! I know some absolute corkers.

Amy said...

OK! Tag! Going down the list of those who responded: RC, Aims, Warren, Swearing Mother, and just to see how far the apple falls from the tree, Sarah. Oh, crap! Warren doesn't have a blog. Warren? Maybe you can hijack your loving wife's blog. Or start a new one?

Here you go--courtesy of Ogden Nash:
A flea and a fly in a flue
Were imprisoned, so what could they do?
Said the fly, "let us flee!"
"Let us fly!" said the flea.
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

Thank you, Warren. Sounds like a tongue twister.

Shit! Okay, I promise I'll get to it this weekend.
