“Excuse me, but did you take a wrong turn some place? Did you know that there is a city in Ireland called Limerick? Well, it's true! A limerick is a form of humorous verse. It takes its name from the city of Limerick, Ireland, but no one knows how or where the form originated. But I've made one up for you, just so you can see to what depths we plunge ourselves to make this book worth your while!
There once was a plane oh so dandy,
Who did stalls, spins, and loops mighty handy;
When only a tyke
He was named 13MIKE,
That's a heck of a lot better than 13RANDY!
May this also inspire you to great moments of thought!”
