Limerick Day

Posted by Brittany

Limerick DayA limerick is a five line poem, usually funny and often obscene, with an aabba rhyming scheme in anapestic (ta-ta-TUM) or amphibrachic (ta-TUM-ta) meter. Popularized by Edward Lear in the 19th century, it is theorized that the poem’s name refers to the City or County of Limerick in Ireland. Though “clean” limerick’s appear periodically, in general a classic limerick is bawdy and makes lite of the taboo.

And now for something completely different: seven limericks written by Chris and Brittany Neigh. We took some liberties, but here we go…

There once was a couple named Neigh
Who decided to celebrate each day
They ate this and that
As their stomachs grew fat
For their blogging their bodies did pay

There once was a couple named Neigh
Who decided to celebrate each day
The food was a plenty
And they spent many a twenty
Much to their wallets’ dismay

There once was a couple named Neigh
Who did something special each day
They ate bagels and lox
And organized Socks
But mostly, they craved Chick-fil-A
