The LO/KPOJ "Lost Limerick Challenge"

Actually, there is no "lost" limerick this week. They were all found and put to use today on KPOJ's Morning Show, with none left over to exhibit here.

But take heart: As (almost) always, this morning's Oregon news limericks, as written by me, read by quizmaster TJ of Loaded Orygun, and answered (usually) by Carl, Christine,and Paul on the KPOJ 620AM Morning Show, are posted at LO.

And, as a treat, here's some Palin limericks--although, unlike this recent entry , today I refer to the Python, not the ex-governor. This is from a 1986 interview with Michael Palin, then promoting his book Limericks.

If nothing else, the interview is an opportunity to reflect on the wisdom of Shaw's observation that England and America are two countries separated by a common language. For example, I imagine there were English viewers who did not consider Kenneth Williams to be a shriekingly dreadful excuse for a talk-show host.
