Limerick #8

Said the chicken, ‘Dear egg, I have toiled
with that question in which we’re embroiled,
as to which of us two
was the first, me or you.’
The egg remained mute. It was boiled.

Joe, all us eggs of the world
Are rejoicing you've remembered us here
Where most people just simply eat us
With, or without having beer ?

Brian was so busy on other things he completely forgot WED like me. I have advised him, as did I myself, to put it on his calendar for next year ?

Golly gosh Joe I've gone done forgot
That today it was World Eggie Day
My day has just ended, while yours just begun
So I can't catch up, sorry, no way

Tell you what, I'll go stick it on my calendar
In prep for World Egg Day next year
So all our little chooks here downunder
Can lay eggs while I watch, with a beer...

What a useless bit of nonsense...who let him in WOL? ?

A cracker Joe! perfect for Egg Day.

Coincidently, I've recently been playing with Limericks. Why are they always humorous do you think? They represent quite a challenge if done seriously.

One to mark World Egg Day (a very important day for all the eggs in the world).
