Thank you so kindly, Gershon, and Fred thanks you, too! (He's quite popular 'round these parts, though he sometimes gives me the cold shoulder, lol). Blessings, Buddy! :-)

Gregory, I didn't even need to see the photo to appreciate the great humor in your poem. Congrats on a first-place win. Bawdy humor at its best! Send me a Soup mail with your address so I can send the prize to you.

I am so happy that you liked my little Limerick, Carolyn ... I haven't written many, nor diverted into the humorous genre a great deal, but it's a LOT of fun, and it was a joy to make others laugh, though I must give the credit to Fred himself, (who is quite happy to be back in winter again!) ... he loves to make folks laugh, too, and spends most of his time on his head for just that reason. ;-) Blessings, and thank you SO much for the honor! Happy Holidays to you and yours! :-) <3

Haha! Thank you, John - I so appreciate it! Where I come from Limericks are intended to be a bit "off-color", so this came naturally ... so pleased you enjoyed it, my friend! :-)

Congratulations on your win. A fun limerick!

Still the best limerick ever in my book. Guess you had a ball writing this one... And glad to report that our balls are no longer made of snow here in Chicago: It's 63 degrees Fahrenheit in my neck of the woods this afternoon. Heat wave! Congrats, Gregroy R! Best always, Gershon
