He spent the night in misery, for he had no fork to eat the pies with. Not Reeeally! Alicia, x

You are very kind, Brenda:) That limerick was written thanks to the contest, so at least I made use of the inspiration. [...but to be honest with you...I'm not keen on HMs:))] // paul

Greed and gluttony go hand in hand; a penalty has to be paid, eventually! Thanks for stopping by, Debbie. // paul

Hi, Paul. Nice limerick, my friend. There is always a price to pay when consuming so much pie. Quite clever. I enjoyed it..... Robert.

That's right Andrea; but many people prefer to eat their pies now rather than wait for pie in the sky! By the way...really enjoyed your bio:) // paul

If anyone ate like this, they surely would feel a pain in their wallet, as well as in their stomach.... A very clever write, Paul. Well done! Good luck in Sheri's contest!

Thank you for stopping by, James. I am sure that your home-made pie is going to taste much better than my limerick pies:)...and no misery afterwards! // paul

I can relate, we just finished our Thanksgiving dinner and I finished off by eating to much pie! This was both fun and prophetic.

Teehee! I love this very cleverly written piece! It is effectively hilarious! Well done, Paul! And thank you so much for your compliments on my Halloween piece. There seems to be a glitch and I can't reply on your comment there. All the best, my friend! Pandita

Hi Pandita....I noticed that there is something not quite right on that post of yours; must be a technical malfunction. I am glad you enjoyed this limerick; we'll start delivering next week!:) // paul
Date: 10/11/2014 6:21:00 AM
:D We always pay when we overeat, but it's hard to resist pies, Paul. Your poem is witty and has a great flow to it! Sheri will surely like this one. Look at the great comments you're getting on it. Wow, wishing you success! (Wish you could have tasted my mom's apple pie. It was the best I ever had.) And you know I agree with what Armando said. That's why I'm always bugging you to co-write. LOL Love you and your poetry! Carolyn

You are sweet and adorable Carolyn! I am so pleased you enjoyed my pie limerick. I am sure your mum's apple pies used to taste great...my grandma's were my favourite ones. My mum's best were meat pies and my fave ones are fish pies! Love and hugs, // paul

Carolyn, I saw a sign in a little restaurant once that read PIE LIKE GRANDMA USED TO MAKE - 50 cents. PIE LIKE YOU THINK GRANDMA USED TO MAKE - $5 DOLLARS.
