The Limerick that Wrote Itself

Clipart image of a toddler

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 11 October 2021, radioactive.

There once was a man from Madrid,
Who, when younger, desired to have kid,
But with puke unattractive,
And shite radioactive,
He’s now not quite sure why he did.

      1. Oh no, sir, I beg to differ; I am the youngest of four siblings, so frequently changed my nieces’ and nephew’s diapers, but refused to deal with #2 until I had my own babies!

  1. When we got a puppy last year, I was (stupidly) amazed at all the pooh and piddle we had to clean up. And you don’t contain dog mess in nappies. The floor copped a real beating. It did somewhat remind me of when the kids were infants. But hell. Half the laughs of exhausted parents would be gone if there weren’t all the shit stories. πŸ™‚
