The creature at the bar loved to get drunk
But townsfolk kept well away cos it stunk
At this bar with his friend
Drank whiskey till night's end
You’ve probably guessed its Sammy the skunk.

Joe the mayor asked the townsfolk to think
For an answer to that horrible stink
They came up with a plan
A huge extractor fan
Now skunks and townsfolk can both share a drink.

Tom, I without being proud of it, used to have people say to me - 'Curtis, I saw you last night, boy, and you were drunk as a skunk'. Proudly, today, I can gratefully proclaim, I have been sober for 36 years but I still remember those days. Congrats on your win.

Thats the problem Nette , you become oblivious to the scents when you go over the top lol. Tom

A huge extractor fan would not be enough, Tom. Not nearly enough! Have you ever had to have the tomato treatment?

Cute one. That is a bad thing for sure. The fan only pulled the stink out for people outside trying to get fresh air had to smell the stink. Thanks for dropping by my page. I appreciate the time spent there. Sara

You did well Tom. We don't have skunks here in Hawaii. Someone smuggled one in a shipping container September 5 on Maui and they found another one in Feb. on Honolulu in for the first time. They can carry rabies and Hawaii is one of the only places in the world that is rabies free. I loved your limerick my friend! : )
