How kind of you, Gershon. I often use idioms/play on words in limericks but they run the risk of not being appreciated. Crude isn't in my nature so I aim for witty!

VERY witty Wendy!:-) hugs Jan xx

That's quite a compliment coming from YOU,Jan. Thank you. I hope the idiom works from an American point of view,too!!
