The Tee Ball Tinkle (limerick)

Updated on October 5, 2013
Source

Little miss bounced as she swung bat at tee

She fidgeted and squirmed as they called strike three

But the out was for naught

On home plate she did squat

For who can hit when they have to pee

      Wayne,

      Oh my lanta... can I relate?! Hey, I've always considered myself athletically inclined, but Tee Ball was never my sport. I heard strike 3 more than Robert Downey Jr! If only having to potty was my excuse!

      Awesome and Funny Wayne (pssst... and I was past due for a Wayne original anyway!)

      Wayne,

      I love your limerick! I saw a video of this young sportswoman. It was on television, possible America's Home Videos. It was so funny to watch, but I really felt bad for her.
