KERMIT VERSE: Limericks about FROGS*

SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym) and Dr. GH, September 2018. Today's poems have mostly been published (a few are still under review) at OEDILF.com, an online humor dictionary that has accumulated 100,000 carefully edited limericks. Thanks are due to OEDILF contributing-editor MikeAq who kindly provided a number of verses in the present collection.
PHOTOS: Unless otherwise noted (by pale blue acknowledgment plaques), embedded photographs were taken with and transferred from Giorgio's cellphone. Following submission of the poems to OEDILF, the slides collages we present here were formatted using Powerpoint software on a vintage 2000-era PC computer. No photographic subjects were reimbursed for participating in this undertaking, and OEDILF has no involvement in the pictorial portion of this presentation. 

SONGLINK: For those readers who like poetry set to music: You can find lots of singable limerick-medleys on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE", such as this recent post

By the way, to find more limericks, or any other search target on either of these 2 blogs, use the SEARCH-FUNCTION found at the top of the right-hand margin.

  2. Thanks for visiting the site and for your comment. I hope you will visit some of our other posts related to flora and fauna too, e.g. birds and reptiles. We are always looking for folks who will contribute some good personal photos of wildlife to enhance the song and poem verses that we post
