    I love this, as I think Limericks succeed from the humour. Glad you were the winner. SuZ

    I find New Year's resolutions very difficult to stay true to. What can you do though? You only live once... nice writing.

    Now this is perfect limericking: witty and spot on rhyme and meter. Wish all the ones I saw were this way!! Thanks, btw, for your sweet comment on my sonnet.

    BTW.....most important that you use concentrated lemon juice... If you use the fresh squeezed you'll be flat on your keester before you know it....Jake

    SKAT, Sorry, I drank it all.... But it is easy to make..... You take the juice of one fifth of Vodka and add a tsp of lemon juice..... Mix well then sit down...'cause you're gonna be down very soon anyway..... Jake
