Potato Limerick #1
“A ‘potato’ is a wonder”, said Edward the king
“In fact it’s absolutely, positively mash-ing!
Boiled or chipped (in case you lose it)’
Sauteéd (once flipped – being careful not to bruise it);
Au Gratin, dans le matin, just the thing.”
Potato Limerick #2
“The potatoes are coming!” the little boy cried.
We all ran for cover; but, the little boy lied.
When we surfaced from hiding
With our fears all subsiding;
He laughed at our faces and much wounded pride.
Potato (ish) Limerick (ish) #3 (in two parts)
You say potato, and I say chips
As in ‘Potato’ and, as in ‘Chips’
You know it might just catch on – barring mishaps.
You say tomato, and I say soup
As in ‘Tomato’ and, as in ‘soup’
You know it might just catch on – perhaps.
