And to help wordplay-buffs focus on palindromes about canals, here is an ancient blogpost on the subject: CANALINDROMES


















CURTAINED VERSE: FAINTLY OBSCENE (selected) LIMERICKS*

WORDPLAY post #187

Preview of this fall's offerings. Target date: December 15.

SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, September 2019. Today's verses have also been web-published at OEDILF.coman online humor dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited limericks. Thanks are due to OEDILF contributing-editor MikeAq who kindly provided some of the verses in the present collection.
As limerick-writers are often tempted to dive into the baser spheres of human life, the dictionary has a 'curtained room', accessible only to online members, presumably flagging that the designated verses may not be suitable for children. On his own recognizance, Giorgio has selected the following verses from OEDILF's 'Curtained Room', based on their  requiring only 'light curtaining', and taken the risk of offending some readers by publishing them on this otherwise sedate, and arguably family-oriented blog.


WARNING: The following verses may not be suitable for all ages. Those under 15, or over 85, are advised to read the following content only with the permission and supervision of an adult family member.

"Leigh Mercer's Palindrome Workshop" 




rêve = French for dream.
Tulsa, Oklahoma: a stop on U.S. Route 66, as mentioned in the eponymic jazz ballad.
Amana Colonies: a religious community, the Pietists, founded this settlement in the state of Iowa in 1856.
panama (Ecuadorian hat): a traditional brimmed straw hat of Ecuadorian origin, becoming popular worldwide at the beginning of the 20th century.
BNA Act: The British North America Act paved the way for the  Confederation of Canada in 1867.












Words and Nonsense: 1) CLAIRE'S CELERITY 2) SHARPIEGATE

WORDPLAY post #185
Preview of this fall's offerings. Target date: December 5.
SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, August/September 2019. Today's verses are also under review at OEDILF.coman online humor dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited limericks. The accumulation stage of this project is not being undertaken with celerity (proceeding alphabetically, the open range from Aa- though Gr- is now almost fully covered) - it is estimated that the final date of completion will be 2063.
For those (including the editor) who have forgotten this obscure word's meaning, the word celerity is defined by my dictionary as meaning speed, rapidity or quickness of motion.

SONGLINK: For 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
