The gauntlet is thrown! Consider yourselves challenged to write, or read, a time-travel limerick (or two, or three; be loquacious like me).
I first read about the time-travel limerick challenge on Sue Ranscht’s blog (thanks, Sue!); she re-pointed me to a blog I’ve been following for awhile (but am not always able to participate in). So, as this one was particularly inspiring, you see the results below. Do visit Rashmi’s post at Mind & Life Matters for the limerick-y shenanigans, with yours due by Friday (tomorrow!).
Once there was a lady from before
Whose friends thought her a bit of a bore
‘Til she found a tunnel to after—
that didn’t incite laughter—
now she turns down parties galore!
There once was a man from Then
whose 20-year wife always nagged “when?”
Fortieth anniversary planned to Niag’ra
(He’ll bring the Viagra).
On his wife he’d (eventually) put a grin.
The scientist had turned time to taffy
to stretch moments to maximum happy,
but as joys got longer
so, too, did the wronger.
Thus, she concluded the methods daffy.
