Daily Limerick Archives: December 2000
Contains Mature (and immature) Content;If You’re a Minor, Go Away!
NOTE: DL has not yet taken the time to put "anchors" into the archives. Translation: You're gonna have to scroll all the way through the long-ass documents (use your "find" commands, squatlicks)!
Here’s a sample of the Daily Limerick FREE e-mail newsletter! (Now in it’s second year of “service”!)
NOTE: A limerick is a humorous poem that is generally of a sexual nature. If you are offended by such a thing, please delete this message immediately.
You’ll find a sample limerick below as well as “Slappin’ and Yappin’,” our new feature of commentary, of sorts, on our nutty, copiously-corporate-sponsored world! That’s right, what began as simply a limerick service is now a full-blown... er, at least a lukewarm attempt at an e-newsletter!
So you’ve spotted that guy or gal that’s causing a dance in your pants—but what, oh what can you possibly say to pick him or her up? “You’ve got more legs than a bucket of chicken” is nice, but it takes a special kind of person to appreciate it, mainly people who don’t know English too well. Perhaps you should throw out a LIMERICK! For limericks truly soothe the soul and part the thighs. If that doesn’t work, some quotes from “Slappin’ and Yappin’” will surely break the ice.
Well, perhaps not. But in any event you can simply reply to this e-mail and get a free limerick (and “Slappin’ and Yappin’”—every day! No, you haven’t died and went to heaven! And, no, you haven’t died and went to hell either!
Should you not desire a succulent limerick and tender dose of Slappin’ and Yappin’ delivered to your e-mail box rain or shine (occasionally late, but much more reliable than the Post Office, although that’s not saying much) you can simply DO NOTHING. That’s right—unless you reply and simply ask for it, you won’t receive more! (Although the DAILY LIMERICK is organized a bit like the Post Office, so you may accidentally receive more than one of these sample queries.)
Sign-up today! Be the first on your block to have the DAILY LIMERICK!
Here’s today’s DAILY LIMERICK NEWSLETTER. We’ve gone beyond a simple limerick service, so stay tuned after the limerick for “Slappin’ and Yappin’,” a word from our crackpot! (Christmas themed for the Holidays!—that’s right, “CHRISTMAS,” not “HOLIDAY”—shove your PC crap into an orifice of your choice—if you don’t celebrate Christmas, that’s A-OK, but we’re writing the limericks, so take that!)

Rumor has it that Helen of Troy
left ol’ Paris for debonair Roy.
Soon flirtation she’d learn
and upon her return
was soon known as Helen of Boy Toys.

So I read today that the FAA found it acceptable for that woman to bring a 300-pound pot-bellied pig onto the airplane because it helps her deal with stress and she has a heart condition.
Now I can't light up a cigar on an airplane, and that certainly doesn't help ME deal with stress.
But anyhoo, you just wait and see what happens if I ever do have a heart condition. 'Cause I'll be whippin' out a hog of my own, if you know what I mean, to relieve stress on airline flights. As a matter of fact, I think a cute flight attendant should have to help me with my little hog-hey, medical condition babe! That lady over there has a pig, I want a little...

Shopping for holiday gifts online this year? Sitting home, in your underwear, charging up the old credit card, avoiding the actual confrontation with humanity at all costs because you just can't stand people-all in the quest for impressing your relatives with material gifts...
Isn't that what Christmas is all about?

Out the door ran a young lady’s dog

I was in the store today trying to buy a rectal thermometer and it struck me:...
Okay, I was buying the thermometer for a sick cat, as the vet told us to keep an eye on his temperature, sicko.
Alright. But I found a whole load of DIGITAL thermomenters there costing $10 or more each. No good old-fashioned, glass, skinny thermomenters.
Here's where the human race is doomed. We can't admit that the technology of something like a thermometer is just about perfect. I've never had difficulty reading a traditional thermometer, even one sticking out of a cat's orifice. And I'd rather pay a quarter of the price for a non-technological one.
It's kinda like DVD. Sure, you can get never-before-seen outtakes that didn't make the original movie, but as long as Hollywood's churning out Adam Sandler's next crap on a reel of tape and re-makes of every movie that ever succeeded on the past (because it was made in a much better age of Hollywood)...
Come to think of it, "Little Nicki" has a lot in common with a rectal thermometer. I'll leave you to fill in the rest of the joke.

I was thinking the other day about how long I believed in Santa Claus. I believed in him into 6th grade. However, it wasn't a simple process-one day I was a core believer and I woke up the next a non-believer. It was a gradual process.
By the time 6th grade rolled around, my belief in Santa Claus was kinda like the average Ralph Nader voter. Outwardly, I'd say I believed, but deep inside, I knew Santa wasn't real, like the average Nader voter would say Ralph had a chance but deep inside... well...
Anyway, the other day I was thinking how this kid named Mark Johnson beat me up all the time as a kid, which I was reminded of because I remembered him bullying me because I believed in Santa Claus.
Then, like a typical adult who was a nerd as a child, I thought "He he-but I showed him! I'm making more money than that ox now!"
And then I thought about it. "You know, I'm a performer and a journalist. He's probably a plumber with a cushy union job or something. I'm probably not making more money than him."
I think there's a moral in that story. But I wouldn't recommend sharing it with your children.

It's former (long time age) President Martin Van Buren's birthday-how do you plan to celebrate.
I'm not some presidential nerd, mind you. I happen to know it's MVB's birthday because on my first, hideously-failed attempt at college (1986-1988), me and my pals in this apartment decided to throw a party and we needed an excuse. We found out it was Martin Van Buren's birthday.
My friend Roman later sat and unfolded all the cookies, laughing his head off at the MVB "fortunes" within. Nobody at a cookie.
I began one of the most dysfunctional, Pink-Floyedesque relationships of my life that night. We also finally pulled off the "hamster high diving act" (don't worry, no rodents were harmed).
Okay, I'll give you one of the Van Burne fortune cookie fortunes: "Martin Van Buren's initials are MVB."
But, really, we did look up some serious information, too. I can't remember any of it, but we did.
Daily Limerick 12/6/2000:
A girl with a fetish for snow

Now I know what it's like to be on "Survivor."
That's because I'm stucked in temporary quarters in the suburbs right now and, today, I found out the current tenant in our soon-to-be apartment is not moving out Dec. 28 as planned, but on Jan. 15.
Okay, so I haven't been eating rats. But despite the well-manicured lawns, I don't NOTICE any signs of humanity. Hell, we I do see somebody, I don't notice signs of humanity.
In this case, I'm hoping I'll be somehow voted off Suburbia. Taking off all my clothes and running around isn't helping much.
Daily Limerick 12/7/2000:

I used to appear on this public access cable TV show in Chicago called Songsation. It was a lot of things, including music by the guy who put it together (hence the title), but it also included sketch comedy type stuff, performance poetry, comedy, etc. I was in a lot of the sketches.
Well, this brought me absolutely NO fame and fortune. Well, a friend of mine saw me on the show once while flipping channels, but that doesn't count as fame, because he already knew me.
Now, I haven't been on this show in over two years. I recently got back into Chicago. And somebody recognizes me from the show! A complete stranger! Except, well...
He was the guy behind the counter in a porn store. Okay, so I think he's actually the owner, if that improves the situation at all.
Now, some of you who know me may be thinking, "Hey-he's married!" But actually, although I don't even have to explain myself, pornography is okay with my wife. Of course, there's sort of a "don't ask, don't tell" policy involved, I'll admit. Except I wouldn't get kicked out of the... er, service for being caught, it's just... Anyhow, window shopping's okay, as long as I don't go into the dressing booth, so to speak.
Anyway, what does this say about me and my comedy career? I have a niche following-of porn professionals! That sounds much better, except it's not actually nubile dames (sorry, Mike) who are the fans but guys behind the counter.
Nothing against the guy, of course. He's just making a living, and he seems like an alright guy.
I guess it's just scary to be in a porn emporium and hear, "Don't I know you from somewhere..."

Do you know how they say ants and bees and such have a "collective intelligence"? How they're vitually mindless individually but, together, can create wondrous aunt hills and tunnel system and have a functioning society?
Well, I'm begining to think human beings have something similar. Individually, we're very intelligent-we can make tools, survive if stranded in the mountains, memorize all sorts of phone numbers and songs and poems, dramatic lines-whatever. The difference is that we're intelligent individually but we have a "collective stupidity" to the human race.
Go to your local mall or change channels a while. Then just try and dispute it.

So, as I understand it, Toni Braxton's breast implants ruptured.
I'm having a hard time crying over this. You're struck with a hideous disease, I feel pity. You're hit by a car, I feel pity. You put plastic bags in your breasts and they explode... Well, you're an idiot to begin with.
Also, if you're a singer, wouldn't... say, larynx implants make more sense than breast implants?
Daily Limerick 12/10/2000:
There was a young flamer named Roy

Today, I was in a store and I approached a cartoonish looking, stuffed animal reindeer, complete with Santa suit and hat, and I went to squeeze his paw, which would cause it to sing "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" and I thought to myself...
"I don't REALLY want to do this."
And I recalled the singing bass and it's "try me" button I'd pushed. And the gorilla that sings "Wild Thing." And the singing Santas. And the Halloween goblins singing "Monster Mash." And the talking parrot...
I decided, "It's time to stop the circle of stupidity."
Someone of you are out there now. Mindlessly walking over to a penguin with a flipper that, when squeezed, will cause the bird to sing "Winter Wonderland." I feel for you. I was there once. I, too, once thought I wanted to hear the annoying songs, thought I was still amazed by 1986 technology of singing, highly portable stuffed animals...
Won't you please help me? Take a good look at yourself. Help stop the circle of stupidity. For the good of all of us.
Daily Limerick 12/11/2000:
The Christmas clock’s begun tick-tockings

Being back in Chicago, I've discovered that Christmas in Chicago is a lot like being married, whereas Christmas in L.A. is much like being single.
I have a lot of singled friends who acted like, "Whooah, dude! You're getting married! No more days as a swingin' single!" when I'd gotten engaged. However, in reality, most of my Saturday nights as a single guy entailed sitting around with my guy friends, trying to figure out all the women we were dating, ala "What do you think she meant by that-she was all flirty one minute and the next..." and "Do chicks ever leave their boyfriends when they're all flirty with you like that?"
So, when Christmas Eve hits in L.A., there's very little chance of getting snow the next day (it did, I believe, snow for Christmas in the '30s or '40s sometime in L.A.)-much like being single, where there's actually very little chance you'll actually get laid on any given evening out.
But, as my wife has pointed out, it doesn't always snow for Christmas in Chicago-just like many people point out that you don't always get laid very often when you're married. But on any given night when you're feeling frisky, there's still a better chance of getting laid than when you were single-much like, on any given Christmas Eve, there's a much better chance of getting snow in Chicago than there is in L.A.
Daily Limerick 12/12/2000:

Whenever somebody goes dissin' (now there's a cutting edge word for you-shows you I'm hip to the jive) my relatively low income, I just tell 'em I could be in management at a Fortune 500 company at any time, if I only wanted to do that.
At least I THINK I could get hired as a manager at the local McDonald's. I do have Long John Silver's experience in my background...
Daily Limerick 12/13/2000:

Don't think you're getting TWO Slappin' and Yappin's today, just because you got two limericks.
Anyhoo, I was walking downtown today, as I'm actually making money working right now, albeit as a temp, and I saw all these signs in front of buildings that said, "Watch for Falling Ice."
I assume this is in response to the fact that some woman was killed last year (or sometime recently) by ice falling from the roof of a skyscraper. Which, of course, prompted drooling lawyers to sue these building because, of course, everybody shovels their roof so that ice doesn't kill pedestrians below, right? But now, I guess, the sign is suppose to give even more lawyers a chance to make a case that "The pedestrian was warned!" and therefore get out of any responsibility for the falling ice and its lethal tumblings. Of course, I'm not talking here about whether or not ice falling is a landlord's fault or an act of God, or even the particulars necessary for such a decision based on an individual situation, but the situation makes lawyers money and that's what is held most important here.
Whew! Sorry about that.
So anyway, how useful is a sign like this? Is this to tell me that I should walk seven blocks out of my way to find a building without such signs, and walk beside that building? Should people quit their jobs or refuse to come to work if they have to pass such a sign to get to work? Or should I take comfort in the fact that, if I look upward, I can see the ice chunk that will take my life for my last remaining moments alive (because I don't think "seeing it coming" is going to give me the added time to save my life).

If you've ever met, as an outsider, a group of people from an office (your girlfriend or wife's co-workers, a friend's, etc.), there a general rule you can count on:
They're always from a "crazy" office. "Aren't we all crazy?" "Where we work is SOO different from a regular office!" blah blah blah...
Why does everybody assume they're "crazy" and "nutty" and "zany" today? I mean, so what if somebody once photocopied his butt. And, sorry, but somebody in every office where those oh-so-madcap Three Stooges ties, or other ties of nostalgia. And every office has joke telling. And most workers goof off from time to time.
So STOP IT! Stop telling me about your "crazy" office. If you're filming porn flicks in the back or constantly bringing a kegger in to work, tell me THOSE stories. Otherwise, you're just like every other office, therefore missing the qualifications for being outside the bonds of normal.

"Love is..." (the cartoon) just has to be stopped.
I know that the woman who originally drew it died a year or two ago, and her son took over. But it started to get weird while she was still alive.
And then, the other day, I saw one that read, "Love is... A night out karaoke singing together."
NOBODY should be encouraging such a thing. And if that's what love is, well, the world needs more hatred.

For reasons I would rather not get into right now, I was watching the show "Yes Dear" tonight and...
Yes, I'm okay. I think the brain cell loss was only temporary. Thanks for asking.
But anyway, I got to wondering... We all know that Hollywood entails a multi-tiered system to produce all its cra... er, shows. That is, a writer writes a script, an executive producer, vice producer, assisting lieutenant producer, blah blah blah (all of who lack a single creative bone in their bodies and get jollies from fucking up other peoples' scripts), all mess it up, and then it's given to focus groups and sample audiences and blah blah blah again...
But, with a show like "Yes Dear," why doesn't somebody, just ONE PERSON along the line, say, "Excuse me but... This completely sucks camel balls." And, if listening to my uptight, dogmatically Republican neighbor rant about shovelling snow is more entertaining than an episode, considering that there are thousands of comics all over Hollywood, a couple of which can write funny lines quite regularly...
I forgot the question. But it's time for those of us with brains to get offended. Not over sacreligious stuff or sexual stuff or anything, but with plain old stupidity. And "Yes Dear" offends the hell out of me.

Unfortunately, I'm only thinking of this now that the election is actually over, but I could've been a great marketing guy for the Republicans, for Dubya and his running mate with my slogan:

Now that's certainly a better promise than "A Chicken in Every Pot."
And, by the way, if PETA were around for when that came saying was new... Well, let's just say we live in an ugly world today.
Come to think of it, if I ever run for office, my slogan'll be: A PETA MEMBER IN EVERY POT!

Now, I don't exactly have the facts straight here, but this is not journalism but limericism. Or something.
Some NFL team, I believe it's the Green Bay Packers, it's seeking to ban Eminem from playing in their stadium under some NFL rules clause that would allow them to do so based on the concert being "incompatible or inconsistent" with the NFL image.
Let's take a closer look at this. Eminem is often accused of glorifying domestic abuse; Eminem is, in general, often accused of glorifying violence; Eminem is known for criminal activiy; Eminem is ridiculously overpaid when you consider his actual worth to society.
I think perhaps Eminem is TOO compatible with the NFL image. Have you read the sports pages lately?

I read about another one today. This time, in China. A fire killed hundreds of young people.
I've read similar stories recently about similar fires. I remember one in South Korea in particular. I don't remember much about other recent fires, except that they were in Asia.
Now, here's the common thread in these fires: They were in "illegal discos."
Does somebody have an explanation? These fires weren't in legal discos. And they weren't in illegal gambling halls or brothels or even illegal crack houses.
Perhaps we can learn from the tragedies. Especially this last story. I don't know about preventing fires or anything, but the idea of making disco illegal certainly intrigues me. And the issue might have actually gotten me excitied about a candidate in this last election!

What the hell's with Mel Gibson's teeth? Can anybody answer that?
Have you seen the commercials and print ads for that (probably) atrocious "What Women Want"? Well, apparently women want a guy who's bound to catch bugs in his teeth because his lips never touch.

Well, here they are! The last Daily Limericks of the millennium!
For all you non-sticklers out there who were too worn out from celebrating the phony turn of millennium, realize that in 1900 nobody celebrated! The people 100 years ago had enough brains and patience to know that the new millennium didn't start until 1901!
Even the alleged "journalists" all seem to think we're in a new millennium already. They call folks like me a "stickler." No, adhering to facts does not make you a stickler. If you went into a donut shop, ordered a dozen donuts, paid for a dozen donuts and received only eleven... Would you be a "stickler" if you complained?

Blah [NOTE: I believe that this one was left in the file as a cut-and-paste aid.]
In July of 1999, one month before the All Limerick Slam at the 1999 National Poetry Slam festivities, I was bitten by a radioactive Leprechaun and the Daily Limerick was born. Suddenly, my path in life became clear. I was born to be a crusader for uncensored truth, justice and Limerick! Actually, I wanted to get an AUDIENCE for the Limerick Slam I’d be hosting, but I was so amazed at the lack of enthusiasm for the project that I thought I’d send a Daily Limerick indefinitely! Plus, I won the Limerick Slam accidentally and wanted to give something back to the Limerick community! (Not too much, as there was no prize in it for me!) I then committed to at least a year of the limericks—a milestone I’ve already past! At this point, I’m not entirely sure why I’m continuing this, but I have no definite plans to stop—so perhaps I’ll do this for the rest of my life, if we have enough subscribers!
By the way, I guarantee QUANTITY in limericks—one a day. I do not guarantee QUALITY in limericks.
