Limerick: Once a mincing Mrs from Mississippi

Limerick: Once a mincing Mrs. from Mississippi

Once a mincing Mrs. from Mississippi*
Went to a bank for a fiddle-d-dee
But her girdle got stuck
And the “SS” came unstuck
That’s why Missis ends as a double P..

*No aspersions cast on Mississippians here;
the term refers to the Paleozoic era in North America,
following the Devonian and preceding the Pennsylvanian, 
of course.

    Might I ask what you meant by "fun"? I wrote it in all seriousness, for i'm not one to laugh at a lady in distress, even if she needed only a hand with her girdle. Okay, thanks a lot, Anne Lise. Grateful for the kudos. Many thanks and every good wish. Wignesan
