PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, April 2019. Today's verses are under review, or have have been finally accepted for web-publication at OEDILF.com, an online humour dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited poems. Thanks are due to OEDILF contributing-editor MikeAq who kindly provided permission for linking to some of his related verses.
PHOTOS: Unless otherwise noted, embedded photographs were taken with and transferred from Giorgio's cellphone, then formatted using ancient Powerpoint software. No photographic subjects were reimbursed for participating in this undertaking.
SONGLINK: For those readers who like poetry set to music: You can find lots of singable limerick-medleys and other song formats on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE", such as this recent post.
BACKGROUND: "herpetology" - the branch of zoology dealing with reptiles and amphibians. Readers should note that snakes have been omitted from this poetic idyll owing to the marked aversion by the editor's life-partner.
Interested readers should also refer to our blog-post #150, "Limericks About Frogs".
See this earlier post for Giorgio's rehash of Ogden Nash's verse (The Purist) about the important differences between crocodiles and alligators.
