Both funny Limerick and picture bring suggestive thoughts to mind, Jan! I played this game in Paris with some elderly pensioners, and they kept changing the rules...I stood no chance of winning!! Hugs // paul

Who is Jools to think she can change the rules? Shame on her! Well done dear, Jan to bring it to our attention! The rules we all declare should be also applied to Jools! Haha! I got a kick out of it dear, Jan! Hugs xx
