I thought it would be fun to post limericks about banans or whatever else. I thought that there was one already started, but I can't find it.
Here's mine to start things off:

I want to grow a banana
all year long in North luzianna
But the temps drop down
freeze em' back to the ground
still, it's warmer here than Montana

There was a man from Nantucket
who grew basjoo in big plastic buckets
they charmed with allure
he spoon-fed manure
if a weed popped up he would pluck it

Ther once was a girl named Brianna
Who tried to grow a banana
She had poor eyesight
When she turned out the light
And one night she watered her nana.

I grow basil and thyme from seed
to supply the local need
folks here in the burbs
eat so many herbs
they flatulate... potpourri

There once was a lady from Quito
Who loved the banana 'Orito'
They passed through her lips
And went straight to her hips
Because they're so easy to eat-o!

Have you seen the pic of me in the Post A Pic thread? I can't put weight on even when I try really hard - even on an exclusive banana diet. Oritos are tasty, though. They're my table banana of choice. Orito Chico are exactly two bites big, and standard Oritos are closer to four bites.

Besides, I'm from Loja if you get down to brass tacks - it's in the accent of my spoken Spanish. Nobody here would mistake me for Quito-raised.

Bob - you're lurking! Where's your limerick?!?!

Wink Re: Limerick thread

Actually I was away from the computer and left it on here. I had one that started there once was a woman from Ecuador but deleted it.
I couldn't get over "eat-o" and was going to suggest someone needs more "sleep -o"...... my deleted limerick had a kobayashi reference that could have been taken out of context so it's history.
I'll have one later.
Cheers-o

The once was a man named Othello
Whose bananas grew large and yellow
Whether due to their size
Others told such great lies
Never trust your friend named Iago
