Katherine Phelps
Our goal is to write at least one limerick for each meaning of each and every
word in the English language. Our best limericks will clearly define their
words in a humorous or interesting way, although some may provide more
entertainment than definition, or vice versa.

certain angle on the sidewalk? There's an easier way to get the brain-pop
