There once was a man from Maine

who got it stuck in his brain

that his teeth would rot

if he ate a kumquat

on a Tuesday in the rain.

    Great limerick! By coincidence, the kumquat are ripe this week in our neighborhood (central Florida), and I've been eating them noon and night. Will be sure to avoid Tuesdays in the rain. Haha. Thanks for the humorous limerick. The rhymes are excellent.

  • Really fun :) Congrats!
