MRS. BEAN'S PAGE
Perhaps the ability to write limericks is absorbed in some households. Not mine, but Cap'n Bean's wife seems to have picked up the knack. The following was submitted by this playful woman for my reaction, although the Cap'n added a few of his own alternative fifth lines.
There was a young fellow named Bean
Who sat on the can really mean;
"Something's stuck in my hiney,
And it sure isn't tiny,
When it drops, I'll be lighter and lean!"
Given the choice of Mrs. Bean's original ending and those supplied by her husband, I voted for the one she had penned and responded with:
"So, Beanie I like what you say,
For me you are queen for a day.
So while Bean's on the potty,
Write me something that's naughty,
Sweet lady, come on and let's play."
Mrs. Bean was quite emphatic in her response:
"I KNOW THAT I REALLY AM FUNNY
BUT BOB YOU ARE JUST NOT MY HONEY
MY BEAN IS MY MAN
I'M HIS BIGGEST FAN
UNLESS YOU WILL PAY ME SOME MONEY!"
I then responded:
"Your limerick has left me quite pale,
My attempt to respond might just fail,
But let's meet in Niagara
And I'll pack my Viagra,
So get packed, for my checks in the mail!"
