Ouch! That was surely hilarious my friend! I loved this write, so funny...ha ha ha! I didn't have much homework today so I am on the soup, enjoying my friends poetry! I definitely loved reading this incredible poem this morning, you certainly made me smile my friend! I will print this off and let my niece and nephew read it! They are 7! I have a younger brother who had children at an older age, but it sure is wonderful to have youngsters around sometimes! Great Work Jan!!

This is among one of the better humorous Wong jokes. I enjoyed your clever Limerick Jan! Example....am I at the Wong house? Certain names get it all the time. My daughter is engaged to a Smith! ; )

I get issues with my surname and my maiden name began with z so I was glad to get rid of it. Yes the jokes about your surname must get a bit stale once you've heard them over and over again:-( glad I made you smile :-) hugs Jan xx

Lol! Jan,you are so good at the limerick form. I don't get tired of reading your limericks either. Because they are always just what the doctor ordered. Laugher is the best medicine in the world:-)Alexis
