Apologies, dear readers...the PS censor strikes again!

King Midas' greed for riches was such
That everything turned to gold in his clutch.
As did his daughter one day
When she got in the way.
Much better for her had they not kept in touch.

The Camelot tale is a wonderful fable,
And King Arthur and knights were all equally able,
But had trouble deciding
Just who was presiding
When no one could sit at the head of the table.

The Emperor (the one with the new clothes)
The vain emperor was pleased, as he gazed in the glass,
At how well his new trousers conformed to his ***.
The fabric, so sheer,
With one crease in the rear,
And the "zipper" in front, though demure, was pure class.

Love these limericks, but not the stupid censorship with the word a**. The people at soup headquarters are overly sensitive, yet they probably use swear words ten times worse than a**! Oh well. Thanks for stopping by, Jim. / M

Thanks, Maurice. I, personally, don't consider "ass" a swear word. But I guess it's all a matter of personal perspective...especially if/when it's apparently ok to use in a reply to a comment.

Thanks, Ilene. Well, what're you gonna do? I recently had to change the word "queer"...meaning "strange" a haiku posting. Someone's sense of "propriety" is slightly out of kilter and overly sensitized here, I think.

Thanks, taai. I take it you're a "fashionista".
