6.23.10 Some good ol' Ove:
Unknown, and yet many could name us,
We're feral, but some try to tame us.
Though no one will see
Us on film or TV,
We're renowned for our not being famous.
("Us" in this case is "them.")
Limerick Keeper No. 488:
Reflections of Virgin Maria,
Then Jesus on food? Mama Mia!
But that wasn't He,
No, it turned out to be
Just a Turk on a toasted tortilla.
A store that I found gave me pause.
What variety! Clothing to saws!
One shopper might ask,
While wearing a mask,
"Hi. Where do I find the men's bras?"
(I wear a 42 Long.)

Ove in an email:
People who can't make good puns are the most prone to hate them.
Puns don't work in stand-up, but an oxymoron or a spoonerism works, for some reason.
Jokes tend to be a dime a dozen. They usually come and go, but puns by Dorothy Parker will be remembered forever.
What a rare spirit was Parker, and the whole gang at the Algonquin Round Table also, rare as winged tulips.
Some O.V. Michaelsen:
I know a young woman named "Jack,"
Who appears to be dressed for attack,
But under her armor,
She offered one charmer
A wig made of hair from her back.
Top authors must fight through stampeders.
I've read at a few empty seaters.
Yeah, word gets around,
And publishers found
That I tend to outnumber my readers.
A wealthy young fellow named Jim,
With emptiness filled to the brim,
Is a cynic and bitter, yet
Cultured and literate,
Focused on one side: the grim.
6.8.10 Kathy is jumping around the country, Texas for Johanna's wedding and Vermont for Max's graduation, and seems to be getting a little cranky with Olive:
