There Once Was A … Eh, I Got Nothin’

May 12th is National Limerick Day! The main reason I bring that up is because my favorite limerick that I read in Texas Monthly, many many many years ago — and had been written by a reader as an entry to the magazine’s limerick contest:

A Bostonian dining in Waco
Asked quizzically, “What’s in a ‘taco’?
In France they eat snails,
Down here, it’s ‘tamales’.
Could this Harvard man please get a steak-o?”

Amazingly, it still didn’t win the contest.
