Tasteless Poetry Tuesday: Looking Back At Limericks

I decided that for as long as I can keep it up I will stretch a bit and do a theme day on Tuesdays of Tasteless Poetry to go with my theme of FOAD on Thursdays.

My first attempt at poetry on this blog was due to a comment by Danielle, who stated that she could see a little bit of artsy fartsy in some of my writing. I had never ever been labeled with the artsy fartsy label but it made me laugh so I posted Artsy Fartsy back in September of 2005, which was about limericks. I had forgotten the meter of limericks though so my original limerick in the post was off but I finally got it right in the comment section.

So in honor of that first artsy fartsy post, here is an ode to the heat; limerick style.

In the west there lives a crack-whore
Who could take the heat no more.
She packed ice in her crack
Both the front and the back.
But now her customers complain of ice sores.

I used to really like limericks.

The heat really has been turned up all over the country.
Here in AR, we have high heat and humidity. It's like having a steam facial every time I walk outside.

Jamie Dawn said...

Happy One Year Blogiversary!!!

Pixie said...

oldfartswife said...

LisaBinDaCity said...

Now THAT's a visual I could have done without!

Mike said...

What a cold bitch!

Big Pissy said...

heh! I was wondering what was gonna go with that picture! *LOL*

Mimi said...

I was wondering how the pic was gonna go with todays subject! LOL! Very good!

Ben Heller said...

You're wasted on this blog Fuzz. I see a book and syndication rights in the future.

Ann Alsex said...

Never heard of a limerick. I have only heard of letmelick;)

Curare_Z said...

LOL. Good one Fuzz. Gotta love the heat....and I guess ice sores are better than the other type they might get from her.... :-)

Jenna Howard said...

Holy Frigidaire, Batman. Brr. But it made me giggle which says what about me?

:P fuzzbox said...

jamie dawn: It is a hot one this summer. It is way too dry here though to have any humidity. I hate humidity with a passion. I spent one summer with relatives in East Texas at Center, Texas. The closest city is Shreveport, La. and the humidity core of Texas I do believe. It was hell on earth in my opinion. Try to keep cool and thanks for wishing me a happy blogaversary.

pixie: I like the Mandy drawings of Dean Yeagle and I thought this one would get people wondering before they read the post.

old farts wife: Not many careers out there for limericks, is there.

lisa: I noticed that you had a post about the heat. Just trying to do my best with helpful tips. ;)

mike: Woo Hoo, well said.

:P fuzzbox said...

big pissy: I knew it would make you wonder. Glad you liked it.

mimi: Thank you. It took a bit of thought for this one.

ben: I can see getting tossed fruit at book signings.

ann: Phunny!

curare: Ice Sores would be the least of peoples worries.

jenna: Maybe that you are artsy fartsy too.

Perplexio said...

I dig the poetry man-- who needs Shelley, Keats, or Longfellow when we've got the true poetic talent right here!

Green Eyes said...

Bravo! Bravo! *standing and applauding, whistles sounding off all around*

A man of many talents. Angry Joyce must be so proud!

Phats said...

ha oh my god, and here I thought you were going to do, there once was a man from nantucket.

I would much rather eat PB&J then that oatmeal slop shit on Big Brother. I think Kaysar made another mistake, we'll see if it bites him in the ass :)

The Phoenix said...

She'll be farting ice cubes.

siren said...

That was beautiful. It brought a tear to my eye :)

:P fuzzbox said...

perplexio: I don't know about all that.

green eyes: Just angrier.

phats: It was as fatal as his boneheaded move last time.

phoenix: And it will also lead to a chilly willy.

siren: Aaawww.

Catch said...

ya got a laugh out of me Fuzz...lol. ALways looking forward to your posts! None of my limmericks are postable...lol

Bruce said...

It brought a tear to my eye, too. No wait..it was just a cat hair; nevermind.

jane said...

LOL Fuzz, I like that. I think you're a natural.

:P fuzzbox said...

catch: On the original artsy fartsy, I posted the man from nantucket. Anything goes. Let 'er rip.

bruce: Nice to see it got your dander up.

jane: But a natural what?

starbender said...

U'r limerick, it rolls off the tongue,
but I hear the crack-dealer is hung.
Ice sores start wars,
amoung all the crack whores,
and the dealers' left eating their young!

Hahaaaaa, I just luv limericks!

R we going 2 end up with a theme 4 everyday of the week???

U know a few of us want to join U on U'r FOAD Thursday.... I think it's a great idea, (and could B a great STRESS reliever!!!)

...and now Tasteless Poetry Tuesdays! What smashing Ideas!!!

If this keeps up, I will have 2 start another blog.........


Keshi said...

diija write that icy poem? ROTFL!


Robert said...

Lime ricks go good
with Tecate

:P fuzzbox said...

starbender: Excellent limerick. I am way to much of an anarchist to stick to a theme everyday. I will be lucky if I can keep up the two that I have. Maybe I should start up another blog myself. Hmmm

keshi: I wrote it all by meself. I don't know whether I should be proud of that though.

robert: What doesn't go good with Tecate?

Pixie said...

I just checked out that Artists site and he is amazing!

:P fuzzbox said...

He is amazing. Some gripe that his work makes Mandy look way to young. I really can not see their position.

Keshi said...

be proud mate cos not many can write such freezing poems lol!
