Limerick of the Day #71

Audio

First we all heard about Bill Gates.
Then Bush appointed Robert Gates.
Repetition, not rhyme
Is what you get this time.
Henry Louis is our latest Gates.

Limerick of the Day #70

Audio

Gates arrived home in broadest daylight,
And he made no attempt to take flight.
But the police knew best
So they made the arrest.
After all, Gates was so impolite.

Limerick of the Day #69

Audio

Health insurers can be so penurious
They deny care, although that's injurious.
But public health insurance
Is beyond endurance
And makes these insurers quite furious.

Limerick of the Day #68

Audio

Four decades ago today,
As envisioned by J.F.K.,
Men walked on the moon
And we all thought that soon
It would be just a stop on the way.

Limerick of the Day #67

Audio

Of all styles in the broadcasting biz,
Walter Cronkite's was uniquely his.
Covering turbulent times
With straight talk (no dumb rhymes) ...
And that's the way it is.

Limerick of the Day #66

Audio

As the fanfare blared out on the bugle
Heralding the new O.S. from Google,
All the pundits had spoken:
The Chrome browser's broken
But this will make netbooks more frugal.

Limerick of the Day #65

Audio

Today is the start of the G-8,
Where nations pretend they can create
The ideal conditions
For curbing emissions.
To save the earth, they negotiate.

Limerick of the Day #64

Audio

As the crowd overflowed to the street, it
Was chanting the lyrics to "Beat It."
Internet traffic swelled
As the crowd felt compelled
To blog every moment, or tweet it.

Limerick of the Day #63

Audio

If the world can get by without Farrah,
And Alaskans can do without Sarah,
Then the Vietnamese
Will pull through with ease
Despite doing without McNamara.

Limerick of the Day #62

Audio

The departure of Sarah Palin
Indicates that the campaign trail in
Alaska's not great
So she needs a new state
To pursue one more job she can fail in.
