"O God, I could be bounded in a nut shell and count myself
a king of infinite space,
were it not that I have bad dreams."
Act II scene ii
A Tennesee lady called MaryHad parts that were terribly hairyAfter self-immolationAnd deforestationShe's now as glabrous as a fairy.
Well, my hair is very short and very grey, but "glabrous"??And now I guess I'll have to learn to write limericks as well as haiku.
That might even go viral for you YP.
Oh dear, I hope I won't be spreading flu-like systems around the world.
I laughed out loud. I also laugh at the attitude of people who despise what they see as corruption in countries whose economies are not as fabulous as Western economies and then applaud and promote the very same thing on a grand scale when it happens at home.I don't get it...Ms Soup
You don't get "it" because you are not on the FIFA gravy train Alphie!
Excellent sell it to Nanc.....I mean...Football Weakly. You could get a regular column inch.
Column inch? More like Column 8.5 inch Adrian!
Pigs awake, fed and ready to fly in Sheffield?
You really know how to hurt a guy Adrian!
And on and on did Blatter blather as if it didn't matter!
An Australian lady called LeeWent to Blatter's place for her teaShe started to blushAnd her heart turned to mushWhen he clamped his old hand on her knee
And how so loudly he did bawlHis cry was heard down the hallWhen strategically her foot hit his ballHe was the one then to turn redWith his tail between his legs he fled
I didn't realise that just like Adolf Hitler, Blatter has only got one ball.
I'm sick and tired by now of the FIFA affairs being endlessly on every news programme, but your limerick sums it all up nicely and certainly makes me neither sick nor tired.By the way, I love limericks ever since our English teacher first introduced them to us when I was about 11. My mind is just not bright enough to make up my own.

I love it!!! Thank you! Am I allowed to nick it and publish it on my blog? (Giving credit to the author, of course.)
Of course you may nick it Ambassador. You wouldn't want to read the alternative and more mischievous version that fluttered briefly in my mind!
I wonder what rhymes with Graham apart from the obvious - mayhem.
I must say, I really do not understand all the fuss. I especially do not understand why our FBI is involved. It's not like they have no corruption to investigate right here at home!Love all the limericks! You could write a tome of them in a week and make tons of cash. But then, the FBI might get after you. Better not.....
A woman called Peace Thyme Garden and Weather StationOffered me congratulationWhen in rapid timeI penned a rhymeThat filled her with huge admiration
Sepp Blatter? Is that a disease that affects one's ability to piss?
Ha! Ha! You cheeky monkey Jan!
Ha! Ha! Very apt !
