A clever witty limerick that presents itself with a more than suitable title! Sir Henry and Jude both have something in common...birthday suits! Hugs // paul

G'day Jan... that'll teach Sir Henry for smoking. He's probably upset because he had to out the fire with his whisky - Catch you soon Jan - Lindsay

Every time I open these, I think you cannot top the last, but these are so darn funny. You have definitely found a niche, and they make me smile too. ~Janet

oh Jan, this is good stuff. I had to look up hirsute. I had not seen that word before. What would make this one even funnier is if you change Sir Henry to a woman's name, something like Queen "you know who" smoked her cheroot..... then when you get to the last line, hirsute has a double meaning!!!! HER SUIT and it also means she used to be hairy. hahahahaha
