Curious Name (limerick)

He sure looks like Bruce Lee.

From proud Chinese background he came

Where ancestor’s name he would claim

Now Ting ruled a throng

And Sum rang court gong

That’s how Sum Ting Wong got his name

With a given name like Sum Ting Wong,

And that is a very sticky wicket,

This guy is a cinch to be elected

On the U.S. Democratic ticket.
