Limerick challenge!

Sir Basil McTaggart McFelt
Spent some time in the veldt
Though really not tryin’
He fought with a lion
He made a fancy white pelt

Some old farts from Absolute Write
Engaged in poetical fight.
An African feline . . .
A Texan so fine.
Their words made a beautiful sight!

:Clap: You people are awesome!


When entering the Bar of Old Farts,
(Which we do, in fits and starts),
One consistently finds
That we've not lost our minds,
And we're more than the sum of our parts*.

:D


* Okay, the less said about our parts, the better. :roll:

Ha ha ha, good one, Gail . . . however:

Okay, the less said about our parts, the better.

Wounded in my old heart of hearts :e2heartbe
When Gail banned discussion of parts.
Got my new tungsten knee,
And hip, proud as can be,
So I’m boastful :e2Order:clear off of the charts!

:roll:

The 'parts' that I had declared,
Are not those which with tungsten are paired.
I meant hiding the bits
Upon which one sits,
'Cos they shouldn't be publicly aired.

:roll:

Speaking of public airing:

Unmasked, we see smiling Chase and Kay,
Though they didn’t sit down in that way.
’Cause you’re taken to task
If you don’t wear a mask
And refused service in that café.

Just look at those cute, happy faces
In an old-school Cafe, of all places.
Chase took off his mask,
And was taken to task
When he slipped out his teeth and his braces.

Signed, Anonymous :e2paperba

Happy Columbus Day, all you senior residents able to recall when Chris wasn't vilified for getting lost and landing where a couple of new continents broke off eons ago.

Of course Columbus and his sailors weren't first here, but his crew was the first to carry news and evidence back to Europe.

It deserves a day to take off from work and fly flags. Thanks for your service, Chris. :e2salute:

So sad. :cry: All once active residents of the infirmary are now strapped into their beds so they don't fall out.

Enjoy your green Jell-O, old creeps. Wait for me on the other side. I'll be along directly :green

Green Jell-O?! - You must *really* think we've all lost (what's left of) our minds. :tongue

Haggis? Now there's a blast from the past! Mean little undead chihuey.

You can find him on Fb. He still bites ankles.

I'm back, got lost somewhere between here and there, hope every one is okay; looks like the responses here have been few lately. Real life keeps kicking me in the butt but so far I keep kicking back.

Ssssh. We’re talking to lizards, with our new-found vaccine powers…
I'm still waiting for my super powers. I had the 2nd shot of Pfizer yesterday. And I'm bitterly disappointed. I did not foam at the mouth and get weird... more than usual. I checked, and I still do not glow in the dark. This is such a letdown.
But I'm giving 'em one last chance. According to popular belief around these parts, Bill Gates has filled all the vaccines with nanobots that can track everyone's movements. This is my last hope. The next time I am lost on one of these godforsaken, unmarked dirt roads around our town, I will call up National Security and tell them what an oxymoron they are. Within 10 minutes I expect to be surrounded by whole lot of cool dudes in dark suits, wearing check-me-back sunglasses and saying, 'Oh yeaaaah?'* If this doesn't happen, I might file a class** suit.

* Don't all you smartypants' tell me they could find me through my phone. I have a whole closet full of turtleneck tops that hide all my wrinkles. I know about cloaking!!
** A 'class' lawsuit means that you do it with panache, darling.

Wait. You're talking to lizards? That's awesome! You've clearly got some good stuff there. You 1st world people are so lucky!
What are the lizards saying?

Funny you mention Bill Gates and the vaccine - and sure most have seen this but just in case there's a few that haven't...rumor has it there has been an occasional instance of bruising around the spot of your vaccine injection:

I thought about writing something witty, but my muse has taken a long vacation to who knows where.

I hope it's not too late to participate in the Limerick Challenge:

Bathing in the River

A woman who lived near the river
Would set my whole being a-quiver
She'd bathe in the nude
And not to be lewd,
'Twas poetry whenever she'd shiver.
