Magpie Tales Oh La La!!

Painting by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

There once was a gal from France
Who refused to wear underpants
As she danced with abandon
The famous dance Can-Can
Henri was totally entranced!

Thanks to Tess Kincaid for Magpie Tales!

  4. “Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys they’d just walk around naked at all times.” ~ Betsey Johnson

  5. The guy on siting on the stool will be entranced, too. Nice limerick.
