What day is it? It's limerick day of course. Not really, but Carson brought me her homework last night and they had to write 3 limericks. Not hard right? After all I am Irish! The hard thing was there were already words in place on certain lines...so you're getting my drift. Not as easy as you first think. So after a few hours of David and I both helping her, busting out a few limericks not intended for nine year olds and calling her teacher a few names we finally got the limericks done. Whew. But that got me on a limerick kick. I came up with a few for her to take to school today but wouldn't you know a sarcastic limerick is lost on a nine year old girl! So I will share them here. If you're offended by swear words then stop reading!
Limerick One: the one I tried to get Carson to take to school.
The limerick homework was dumb
It really was not at all fun
It sucked and it bit
the whole thing was shit
And you can shove that up your bum!
Limerick Two: Said after asking Carson if she had bathed the night before
There once was a girl who was dirty
none of the boys would be flirty
she stunk and she smelled
told them all go to hell
Hey--I think I look rather Purty!
After that limerick I announced to the family that I would now speak only in limerise!!!!
Limerick Three: Written on Carson's lunch bag after she complained I never wrote her notes
There once was a girl in school
she was pretty awesome and cool
her lunch box broke
it isn't a joke
Brown paper lunch sacks rule!
And now another deep thought by Jack Handy:
If you're ever shipwrecked on a tropical island and you don't know how to speak the natives' language, just say "Poppy-oomy." I bet it means something.
