OK, this is a little odd but I was reading up on limericks (a particular kind of short poem). You can read about them here.
Here are some illustrations of limericks:
There was a Young Person of SmyrnaWhose grandmother threatened to burn her;
- But she seized on the cat,
- and said ‘Granny, burn that!
You incongruous old woman of Smyrna!’
Or how about this one…
There was a young rustic named Mallory,
who drew but a very small salary.
When he went to the show,
his purse made him goto a seat in the uppermost gallery.
You get the point. And then there was this one, which just made me laugh…
There was a young man from Japan
Whose limericks never would scan.
- When asked why this was,
- He replied “It’s because
I always try to fit as many syllables into the last line as ever I possibly can.”
I enjoy unexpected humor. This is funny!
