Master of the Limerick

I am a fellow traveler in the horticulture world and shared plant-geekiness with Michael and Gail (Zuck) — Michael being always the guy to ask one more question or try one more idea or have one more bit of information to add to a discussion — as I am sure you will hear from many people.

But perhaps you did not know that he was also a master of limerick writing – and we exchanged many – mostly unprintable. I found this one in my emails from him – cannot tell you whether it was an MZ original but it’s a good one.

On the chest of a barmaid from Sayle
Were tattooed all the prices of ale
Whilst on her behind
For the sake of the blind
Was the same information in Braille
