Post is pinned.
I may soon have to start placing tags
On my satire posts; flashing flags
That say, "Warning! Not True!
"It's a spoof!" How I rue
The resemblance of real news to gags.

Republican pols like to claim
They believe an accuser; their aim
Being sympathy feigned,
Which quickly is drained
By their "victim's confused; wrong guy" game.

Intemperate Brett
shielded by Mitch and Donald;
Supreme Court sullied.

Which liquor’s remembered today?
Not tequila or rum or Lillet.
I’m afraid you don’t win
If you guess that it’s gin,
Cuz it’s vodka. Start pouring, okay?

This limerick was inspired by Thursday’s hearing and this article: “THE UNBEARABLE DISHONESTY OF BRETT KAVANAUGH.”

Brett told lies to the world, large and small,
Some entailing an “I don’t recall.”
Some were odd, like this tale:
“No connections at Yale!”
Which just might Yale-grad-grandpa appall.

It's Limerick-Off time, once again. So I hope you'll join me in writing a limerick using this RHYME WORD at the end of any one line: CRY or DECRY.

My own limerick using that rhyme word is here: http://www.madkane.com/humor_blog/2018/09/29/limerick-off-cry/.

And please don't forget the separate themed-limerick contest. The new theme is TOOLS.

Two weeks from today your best submission will be crowned "Limerick-Off Award Winner."

It's National Coffee Day! (September 29)

I’ve rarely been tempted by tea,
And coffee does nothing for me.
Cappuccino, however —
Can’t miss it. Not ever!
Addicted? Heck no! I’ll take three.

Happy Goose Day! (September 29)

A farmer who tried to produce
A plausible, timely excuse
For gambling away
His nest egg, today
Came up empty, self-cooking his goose.

Mitch has hired a “female assistant”
So Republican men can stay distant
From plans untoward
Like “assassinate” Ford…
Which might render their wins non-existent.
