Daily Limerick Archives: February 2001
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 and realize YOU WILL NOT BE ADDED TO THIS LIST UNLESS YOU SPECIFICALLY ASK TO BE—THIS IS MERELY A SAMPLE!
You’ll find a sample limerick below as well as “Slappin’ and Yappin’,” our commentary section, of sorts, on our nutty, copiously-corporate-sponsored world! There’s also our new “Letters to the Idiot” section! 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 who’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!
Not expecting any Valentines this year? Don’t worry—you can proudly say, as you’re putting the finishing touches on that mail bomb: “I don’t need Valentines! I’ve got limericks!”
And feel free to use one of these limericks on a Valentine of your own! Just keep Daily Limerick out of it when you go before the judge (but make sure and mention that we were responsible if you do, by some strange rip in the fabric of reality, happen to get lucky—or even a laugh—out of it!).
So groan away over today’s SLAPPIN’ AND YAPPIN’ and also welcome a new for of nausea induced by our latest feature, LETTERS TO THE IDIOT! And by the way, I can call myself that because I’m actually a PROFESSIONAL IDIOT! That’s right! By occasionally selling my tripe to MAD Magazine, I’m actually a member of “The Usual Gang of Idiots,” and, considering they pay me, that makes me a Professional Idiot!

A crazed horny slut named Maria
had legs that cried out “Mama Mia!”

This weekend they're kicking off festivities for the new XFL. It's supposed to be some hybrid of Professional "Wrestling" and football, with lots of busty cheerleaders and an overall catering to the six-beers-and-I'm-a-little-inbred-to-begin-with reading level.
Why not just drop the pretense of sport, lay-off the sweaty men in tight pants and form the XXXFL?
Okay, as I've recently related, I understand the allure of second-hand porn. Previously, I didn't understand the point of shows like "Baywatch." If you want sexy women with questionable plotlines, why bother patronizing the advertisers or dealing with those pesky swimsuits? Watch porn!
But now, well, I won't go into my love-hate-lacking contacts relationship with Nikki Cox.
Think about it, though. The XXXFL. There'll be a lot of "going out for the long one." Tight ends. Wide receivers. Rams and Packers galore!
Or perhaps it's just stupid.

There seems to be some conspiracy today, perhaps because humanity becomes more and more pitiful by the minute, toward justifying datings services, Internet date-finding, and other assorted frightening fare. But consider a couple recent stories (and sorry if these are Chicago-based, for our non-Chicago-area readers, but perhaps you've heard of them):
The proprietor of the Goodman theater (or was it the heir-I'm not up on my tragedies) was killed by his wife.
How did htey meet... Hmm...
Through PERSONAL ADS.
Now, a crazed arsonist guy has been meeting chicks and burning down their houses for insurance purposes. He was only recently caught because, in part, the chick, this time, survived.
How did he meet her (and the others)? PERSONAL ADS.
I rest my case.

For those of you who have never worked as a temp, I'll fill you in on the experience:
Do you know how you feel on the first day-probably through the first week-of the job? You don't know the system. You scrawl out notes. You hope you don't screw up too bad. You feel like a bonehead asking questions of co-workers all the time. You forget everyone's name. Everybody forgets yours. People forget you don't belong there. You lack codes to use copiers and computers and sometimes even some sort of ID to get into the building. You get locked in stairwells.
Well, as a temp, that Confusion Honeymoon never ends!
I gotta rent that movie, "The Temp." Perhaps I can pick up on some characteristics and frighten people at these jobs. Gotta get kicks somehow.

I imagine you've all heard/read/whatever about the nut here in Chicago who went and shot up his former office. What an original expression of psychosis, huh?
But anyway, I look at the cover of the Sun-Times this morning and the major headline is "What Drove Willie Baker to Murder?"
Let me get this straight. Something DROVE him to murder. He was just a fun-lovin', altogether normal guy and life got rough, driving the poor, poor guy to murder.
Then, I overheard a conversation in the office I'm temping at and... This one woman, her husband WAS AT Navistar (the company where this occured)-when it occured! (Her husband wasn't harmed.) And she's going off on a tangent about how he wasn't such a bad guy. Life just screwed him up.
Ahem. What happened to the analysis that, oh... WILLIE BAKER IS A SLIMBALL, MANIAC, PIECE-OF-FECES EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING, NO-HOLDS BARRED NUT.
Nothing DROVE him to murder-he got behind the wheel and took the '69 Chevy Nova into Homicide Hills.
Hey, I don't want to start a pity contest here but... I've had girlfriends get pregnant on me BY OTHER GUYS. I've eaten potatoes as my only meals twice a day for months at a time. I've been fired from jobs for things I honestly didn't do-jobs that were barely paying the bills to begin with, at a time before I had any sort of marketable skills or education.
I've been cheated. Been mistreated. When will I-I be loved....
And I know a lot of other people who've been through worse who, strange as it may seem, weren't DRIVEN to shooting up their job site.
Lay off the "tolerance" and "compassion" in some cases. He was a whack-job. 'Nuff said.
Daily Limerick 2/8/2001:
A chick who liked deep-throatin’ nasty
loved a man with a 12-inch mast-y.
When troubles arose
they both blamed her nose

Every now and then, on the road of life, we encounter something that renews our hope for the human race.
Of course, every now and then we encounter something that makes us feel just the opposite.
That happened to me today.
I witnessed a woman, around my age, do something that, frankly, seems to portend doom for the mankind.
She actually said, "That would be Super Dooper."
She wasn't kidding around. It wasn't a joke.
She said, "That would be Super Dooper."
God save us all.

It's The Ninth of February! What are your plans?
Just wondering. We celebrate The Fourth of July! But we don't celebrate The Twenty-Fifth of December! Nor do we celebrate the Seventeenth of June! Or the Third of November!
Hmm. Okay. I'll stop being stupid. Okay, I won't because then I'll have to shelve this whole DAILY LIMERICK project.
But we really should kill the phrase "It's NOT your father's..." Or its close cousins, "It's NOT your mother's..." and "It's NOT your parents..."
I saw a headline today about the currently running Chicago Auto Show trumpeting that "It's NOT your father's auto show." Is this assuming that our father's ran auto shows? Assuming that our father would never go to an auto show today? "They're too foul. There's no talent involved. Back in 1942-that's when people know how to put on an auto show!"
Shut up. Just shut up. It's NOT your father's mouth I'm telling to shut. It's yours.
I'd like to see a headling "It IS your father's auto show!" I think more classic cars might make the show cooler.
Daily Limerick 2/10/2001:

What a dark day.
I awoke to a leaky roof in my apartment. That explains our amazingly low rent for a generally high-rent neighborhood right there. And while we travel about the apartment via gondola, the landlord tells us how he is having the roof fixed next week.
Ah, how I hope we can expect such fine service from our police department! When a psycho breaks into my house, it'd be awesome to call 911 and be assured that someone will be out in a week to help out.
Things took a darker turn when I flipped through the business section of the Sun-Times to see that MAD Magazine, after 50 years, is going to start selling ad space.
I... I guess I shouldn't bring this up because I don't have anything even remotely humorous to say about it. It has me rooting for recession, I'll tell you that. Thanks, AOL. You've got ads!
For those who don't know this, I was an intern at MAD Magazine. I occasionally freelance for the publication still. When I was there, there were a lot of pissed-off editors at the mention of Time-Warner's genius scheme to sell subscriber lists. You know, despite the fact that for decades, their subscription cards used to read "OUR PLEDGE: MAD will not sell your name or address to anybody for any purpose whatsoever!" There were threats of quitting the magazine after mere decades.
Kiss it good-bye. Maybe not this year. Maybe not in a few years. Perhaps a slow, pitiful, painful death but...
So MAD will take it's place alongside the Looney Toons characters now shilling for long-distance service and Elvis after he'd gotten fat and all hooched-up. A pitiful cariacture of what it once was.
Maybe those smelly folks who used to pass out communist newspapers outside my college weren't so whacked out after all.
Call the hospital. We're overdosing on capitalism.

Did you ever stop and think that 99% of all conversation is meaningless?
"Hi!" "So, how are you?" "How was your weekend." All things said out of duty, usually, in which we don't care what the answer is. It's not like someone asks you "How's it going?" and you answer, "Well, I'm a little sick of my job and I'm not getting enough sex. Also, let me tell you about this recurring dream I've been having..."
And it's not only among co-workers and casual acquaintances. Even among friends and lovers. "Man, it's cold!" Chances are, the other person has sensory organs that work, too, and can tell it's cold. "Man, I'd like to do her!" Chances are, your pal can look at the woman in question and figure out that you'd probably do her.
Think about it, next time you have a conversation.

I am reminded of a time when...
Let me start over. That phrase makes me feel like a priest.
I remember a time when some women were talking about bad sex. Or perhaps a friend was telling me about these women talking about bad sex. And a man piped up and said, "Well, what about when MEN have bad sex?"
And the women replied, "If a man has sex, it's good for him. There's no such thing as bad sex to a man." And the guy thought about it and realized that it was "true."
Well, I beg to differ. I HAVE had bad sex. But I'm sure you'd prefer me to omit details. Something to do with a blind date of sorts (blind dates, by the way, in real life look nothing like on that damn show of the same name).
Aww shucks! Now I started the flashbacks...

When I was a child, for whatever reason, I declared to everyone I knew that one day I would be bald and fat. I don't know why. Perhaps I thought that was the mark of a funny man and I hadn't QUITE developed the cravings for, er, birds and bees action that I have today.
Well, both processes have begun.
I don't think my curse involving my soul for fame and fortune went through, though. Or, knowing my luck in the supernatural manners, perhaps I just sold my soul for... limerick or something.
I SOLD MY SOUL FOR LIMERICK! Available in fine stores now!

I've been temping lately, primarily as a legal secreatry (or legal executive assistant, or as legal support-according to which temple of the politically correct you worship in) and, at the risk of cutting off my livelihood (and that of a whole bunch of other people)..
There's really little need for legal secretaries. Especially in this day and age. You don't even have to type envelopes or lables. You cut and paste and pull down a "format" menu and... BAM!
I think it's primarily an ego thing, so I don't expect it to go away. But after the time it takes to speak a document into a dictaphone, then pass it off to the secretary, then set up the dictaphone, listen to the damn thing again and type it out... It would make more sense if attorneys just took a typing class.
Then again, this pays better than any writing-related work I've done, which supports my general theory: The less important your work is to humanity overall, the more you'll be compensated for it.
I have many more example but, think about it yourself and get back to me. Or don't.
Lackadaisical limerick lovin' loonies.

Why is everything today a "disorder"? Well, because a doctor makes money prescribing a pill for it, which makes money for a drug company somewhere and helps further contradict our "Say No to Drugs" ambigous message!
For instance, now they have a pill for "Social Anxiety Disorder." Can't people just be shy anymore? What ever happened to taking that boy to a hooker-nothing gets your attractiveness level boosted like gettin' laid!
Perhaps that isn't politically correct. But poppin' pills is!

Have you noticed that I've been sending these limericks earlier lately? (Who am I kidding? I don't think any of you pay attention to this. I should be sponsored by SPAM!)
Yeah, I used to send these right around midnight (in whatever time zone I was in) but lately I haven't been.
The reason is unexciting. I know that hasn't stopped me before but, well... Sorry for bringing it up. Was just wondering if anybody out there noticed anything at all.
Did you know that there's now a show ABOUT reality shows. Hosted by Kathy Griffith (or is it Griff-IN?) who won't yet acknowledge that being on "Suddenly Snoozin'" ruined her career.
Now, I can forgive you for watching reality shows, but if you're watching a show ABOUT reality shows... You need to work on sprucing up your own reality a bit.

There's a new shopping magazine out. Yes, a lot of people (mainly women) just love shopping but... A shopping MAGAZINE? I've chosen to see the silver lining in that dark cloud, however. It's a handy tool for single men. You see a woman with that magazine (unless you're a gazillionaire) and-whammo! It's like a neon sign that says, "She just ain't worth the trouble!"

Everybody's acting all surprised that all the dot-coms went belly-up.
Web sites, in many cases not charging anything for their services... And those services! A glance through the business pages a year back had you wondering what, exactly, any of these sites DID to justify investments into millions of dollars.
Which, in turn, shows that the booming economy was all buoyed by... Well, bull crap. But fitting that the modern economy can really only BE buoyed by bull crap.

What ever happened to feminism?
Oh, I know occasionally a women's group today will rant and rave about Eminem or somebody. But Molly Ringwald was on Martha Stewart showing women how to knit mittens. And, if you've ever watched a newer Nickelodeon type cartoon, women are once again the housewives all the time while the men are off earning money. Ally McBeal helps show young girls they can grow up to be lawyers, as long as they only eat once a month.
By the way, I DO consider myself a feminist. I AM pro-porn and not prone to lesbianism or man-hating (of course, not true about all feminists, only some) but, still. Oh, and I'm against breast implants, if that helps my cause.

The Grammys are on as I'm preparing to send this. I'll admit, it's on in the other room, but I'll also mention that I've NEVER watched any masturbatory Hollywood/Music Industry (potato, potahto) awards show all the way through. Okay, one year I watched the American Comedy Awards all the way through, partly because I'd never watched one of these masturbation fests all the way through and partly because felt, well, I'm closest to the pathetic fringes of that industry.
I won't be watching it again.
For those not in the know, I'll make a long story short, explaining how you should consider the Grammys:
1.) Pat Boone won more Grammys than the Beatles.
2.) Jimi Hendrix never won a Grammy (to name one fabulous musician out of a very long list)
3.) Musicians like Santana and Steely Dan never win for the music they'll be remembered for, but only as an afterthought if they're still around and the Grammy folks feel guilty for celebrating so much here-today-gone-tomorrow trash every year.
4.) On the year that Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon came out-an album which is STILL on the top 100 selling albums list-the Grammy for Best Album was given to the Captain and Tenille.
(You can't go ANYWHERE today-colleges, raves-without hearing those geniuses, the Captain and Tenille!)
Just a few examples.

>14, 2002 right now, or what? :)
For your information, I'm still in the habit of leaving a monthly message at the top of my limericks. This harkens back to Daily Limerick's vintage times, before the newfangled "Slappin' and Yappin'." Oddly enough, this guy seems to have read my mind-as I was just thinking that day of eliminating the monthly message altogether. After all, Slappin' and Yappin is daily!
Otherwise, I'm not especially pro-Valentines, at least not more than any other holiday. Valentine's day is a good excuse to get laid. And, in the past, when left single, it has also served as a good excuse to go to a strip club! True, most of the years it's been dreary, a reminder that I was without a partner, but, it is a holiday, so hump 'em if you got 'em!
Speaking of which, you really don't want to know what I do for Arbor Day...

I can't add to that joke! It's perfect just as it is!
And now, I'll become Henny Youngman for a bit. I know this is corny but I find it funny... At the Grammy's you had Eminem, who caused controversy, causing protesters. You had Emmiem with nuts! Oh, and since they had Madonna kick things off, shouldn't they call them "The Grannys"?

(whose boyfriend was hung like a silo)
did say of the relic
“Why, it’s quite angelic—
but I prefer Penis de Milo!”

More evidence of Hollywood's "Artistic License" going too far...
The Jennifer Lopez video for "Love Don't Cost a Thing" features Jennifer driving around in a Porsche. Yeah, right...

There once was a fellow named Kotter
who knew nothing of Harry Potter.
He taught at his old school
and remembered one rule
and he called it, “Welcome Back, Blotter!”

I read a review (actually a stock review, written some time ago) about Rob Becker's "Defending the Caveman" recently (as it's running again in Chicago right now). The reviewer didn't say nice things. Which is fine, considering that damn show is responsible for about a decade of comics going off about how men and women are SOOO different.
But one of his big complaints was that the show was HETEROCENTRIC.
Now, that's the type of word you only hear at college symposiums and in beyond-liberal weekly publications. Since "phallocentric" means focusing only on men and ignoring women, I guess "heterocentric" means focusing only on heterosexuals and ignoring homosexuals. Or, I suppose, bisexuals, transsexuals, et. al.
So does this mean that Rob Becker should be adding to his stupid jokes like, "If a woman says she'll call you, she means when she gets home. If a man says he'll call you, he means before he dies. If a gay man says he'll call you, he means... if a lesbian says she'll call you, she means... if a transexual says he or she will call you... if a lesbian transexual trapped in a gay transexual's body says they will call you..."
I would also assume that being "-centric" would make sense in some ways. Not in the instance of "phalocentric," considering there are basically as many women as their are of men. But "heterocentric" makes more sense because, well, about 90 percent of the population IS heterosexual. I don't mean ignoring the fact that non-heterosexuals exist but...
Oh, you know what I mean. And now onto some limerick-centricist poetry.

In response to my crack about Hollywood's "artistic license" showing signs of needing revocation-namely Jennifer Lopez' video for "Love Don't Cost a Thing" showing her driving a Porsche:
>Yes, but in Hollywood, Jennifer Lopez tooling around in a
>Porsche is considered a quiet, reflective night of the soul.
>So why do you hate L.A. again? :)
Jennifer Lopez... tooling around...
Whoops! I just had a reaction much like Homer Simpson saying the word "Donut."
But seriously. Okay, I was just being serious... But more on the topic, I should say:
I don't know what to say. But I don't know if you can say I hate L.A. You might make an argument that I hate the L.A. and Hollywood approach to entertainment. But if you take the "Industry" out of L.A., I don't necessarily hate it. Come to think of it, you take the industry out of L.A. and you have a crummy city with lousy transportation and crummy culture and... Alabama without the humidity, more or less.
Oh, I shouldn't say that. I've never been to Alabama. And I did like Louisiana.
But you know what I mean.

Bisexual nymphettes from Wales
for kicks at night, snuck into jails.
They’d offer the guys
a blow or their thighs—
their “business” cards read “Head or Tails”.

Why is Bob Dole still on the talk show circuit?

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.
If you want to be on John Biederman’s e-list for comedy, sketch and/or poetic performances (in Chicago, Los Angeles or elsewhere), let me know!
