This limerick is my attempt to respond to Lindsay's challenge.  "Maero" are evil spirits believed to inhabit forests (something like that).

There was a wild drink-craving pair Who an Aussie airliner’s fuel did share. It made in their guts masses of gases Propelling them south via their asses. Maori swear they’re Maero from thin air.

Hahaha! Another good one. Say, you should compile your limericks into a book. Bet it would sell. You're a funny young many – if, that is, your photo agrees with your true age. Mine does. / M

Thank you, Maurice. As always, I value your comments, which are ever insightful. Alas, my photo is a fraud. I was born shortly after the invention of the wheel (something like that).

Thanks, Jerry. You write the truth, but these days one must be politically correct whether speaking from above or from below. I had a prof. who, during conversations w/ him, would loudly fart w/o registering embarrassment of any kind. (Maybe he was commenting on my essays.)

G'day Paul... Well done mate. You could have invented a new mode of transport here... or forcing arm guards to be put on the fuel tanks at airports. Catch you soon Paul - Lindsay

Thanks, Lindsay—you're kind (and tolerant). The same story under your pen would have been light years better.
