Aloha!

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."

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

      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: 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.

      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.

      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!
