The Limerick Winner

And the winner is….Mara!

Though he laughed at each entry as I read them, Carter picked the one that really spoke to him. 😉 You know the one that played on his ability to stink up a room and implied that there is a certain intelligence behind his odoriforousness. 

I’ve listed the entries below for you to enjoy. Maybe we should try a Haiku next…

There once was a young man named Carter
And Carter was known as a farter
He stunk up the place
It was a disgrace
But Carter considered it smarter


There once was a boy named Carter
He blew his nose harder and harder
To get rid of his very big booger
Careful not to cause to much humor
Oops, he blew so hard he is now a farter


Come visit my home with your brother(s)
Leave your dad home with your mother.
We’ll shoot some hoops
and make some loops
on the golf cart driven by Carter,


Grampa is an old man without class
He’ll clear the couch by passing gas
If you don’t like the smell
He’ll think that’s just swell
So be sure to bring your gas mask.


There was a boy with wet sweaty feet
They smelled like rotten cow meat
If I could bottle the smell
I’m sure it would sell
As a weapon to bring quick defeat.
