PPL - March Limericks



Our assignment this month was a limerick. Robin gave us a list of target words in honor of March, Spring, and St. Paddy's Day.




This first one is in honor of my grandson who, bless his heart, loves Spam. His mom? Not so much. It is also in honor of this 1/4 Irish, 1/4 Italian, 1/2 German child who swears by all that is holy that she is Irish. Just Irish.



There once was a lass named O’Brien
Who, in March, set green eggs afryin'.
She cooked up some ham
‘cause she just hated Spam
Which set her little man to cryin’.

You always make my face crack in the morning, before I get is moisturized.

Mine is about 'cookin Pam
(I'd like to fry some spam)

--- you know the kind I mean? in your Email box or on our blogs?

A limmerick about Spam is always a good thing!

Have a great day.

I think the SPAM people would appreciate :). Your entry this month a) follows the rules and b) made me grin and c) had a nice Irish feel to it (1/4 or 1 whole, you'll have to decide the fractions ;) ).

Thanks for playing along, EVERYONE has done a fantastic job with these! I can't get enough of 'em! :)

I am going to start taking note of my post titles. I found a site that had my post about American Idol listed for others to read. Kind of cool. I had some visitors from there too. I guess it's the title that caught the attention.

Love the limerick. I use to love Spam, but now I don't eat it.

I love how you explained it first! And how you were able to put that paragraph into a short little limerick. :)
