There once was a woman from Missoula

Who claimed she could do a wicked hula,

She said that's how she met

The man who is her pet,

From Yale where grads all sing "Boola Boola."

There once was a fellow from Butte

Who thought girls and limericks were cute

But better than all

Come spring or come fall

His wife was born utterly mute


Dang, these things are infectious!

Voted Up, Etc.

Terrific! We all need to smile

Who thought that it won't take a mile

Just one little hoot

Hubpages we'll toot

Perspycacious he's the man with style

Hello Ghost - They are kinda fun to write.

Ghost32: Is yours an original (in the Comment above)? Good Limerick, sad mute, though a mute for a trumpet just cuts down and softens the sound.

Hi, Debby--yes they are (fun to write).

Perspycacious: Yes, it's an original, penned (okay, typed) on the spot just for the Comment. An easy one for me, since I originally hail from that area (between Missoula and Butte).

Ghost32 - It seems it would be a natural for you to write a limerick about Miss Butte for the next Buttey Contest there?
