The Friday Limerick Review

This fall, when the staffer was struck
It seemed like some really bad luck
But now she is suing
For Metro's wrongdoing
And stands to make more than a buck

The crasher count climbed up to three
(The new guy is known in Mount P)
These folks are tenacious
But not all that gracious
I'm over it; can't we all be?

Most likely, it wasn't that stunning
That Peebles is not in the running
So will it be Gray
With Don helping pay
By using his real estate cunning?

Suspension with no end in sight
And Gilbert seems really contrite
Suffice it to say
With snow or bourré
You don't bring a gun to that fight!

    The punch line to the 4th one made me literally ROFL. Literally.


  • Will Atwood Mitchell

    Solid gold, as usual.

  • Hannah Neprash

    Guys, you are far too kind!

  • Comrade Al Gonzales

    Impressive, indeed. The climax is spectacularly memorable. Bourré, y'all!

  • Truth hurts

    If Gray marries Peebles, could Peebles then comply with campaign contribution limits while bankrolling Gray's mayoral run?

  • Vincent Gray-Peebles

    Yes, he could, & yes, he will. But tell me, am I the bottom or the top? I'd rather be the top.
