Magpie Tales #115....


image by Manu Pombrol

There once was a man from Mars
Who loved to read in glass jars
Not a Mason, a Ball or a Weck
What the heck?
I prefer the ones made by Kerrs

Yours was from Mars, mine from Dunbar:) Lovely witty words.

You certainly live up to your billing.... 'snappy repartee'. I love this limerick, Kathe. It is so well seasoned. Thanks for sharing.

Stephen Hayes said...

Fun, and totally appropriate with this picture. I've heard there is no rhyme for "orange." I wonder if this is true.

Laurie Kolp said...

Haha... love it! I did a limerick, too.

I'm thinking you come from a long line of 'home caners.'

Helen said...

Oops, you probably don't do chair caning ... I bet generations of women in your family loved to can all sorts of veggies, fruits, pickles!

Helena said...

Nice! Wittywoo's! I love a good 'rick!

Lydia said...

Haha. Cute (the icky picture doesn't deserve such cuteness!). Yours is the only one I've read, as I thought I would get around to doing one Monday night-Tuesday morn. Such is not the case, however, and I'm calling it a night!

Stafford Ray said...

Kath, you did well with such a difficult subject. Your talent needs bottling!

What the Weck?

Doctor FTSE said...

Thank you, Kathe. They're just "jars" to me.

Cool! That is a very cute verse, and goes well with odd picture.
