My friend Steve IM'ed and said he had a friend Jen who worked somewhere that was running a limerick contest. The rules were: clean ;) and the limerick had to mention "Irish" or "March 17" or "green" or "clover" or "leprechaun".
Now, seventeen and green rhyme, so I tried something like:
Tomorrow is March 17
So be sure to wear something that's green
But, I couldn't think of the last three lines. "Or you'll get pinched somewhere obscene" was a promising finish, but then I was stuck on the middle lines.
So after I while, I came up with:
St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow
Drink green beer to drown your sorrow
Just take a few swigs
And then dance a jig
For the luck of the Irish will follow!
This seemed more cheerful.
