Rumors And Gentlemen (limerick)

Updated on January 29, 2015

When people spread rumors untrue

I do what a real man would do

When true facts are known

I’d get on the phone

And make up my own rumors too

      That may be Fallon spreading rumors with Leno,

      But Martin's the go-to guy, 'yo comprendo.'

      :D Made me smile... in reference to the photo, Leno's "rumors" would certainly be more humorous than those of Fallon! ;)
