My Very Own Limerick

Thanks to Tony Grant, I have my own limerick:

There was a great writer called Mary
Who's stories are sometimes most scary
She likes Mr Darcy
All stuck up and arsy
That Austenesque scriber called Mary

I must publish my friend Mary's response to Tony's efforts:

"I wonder who first discovered the efficacy of limericks in driving away friendship" Lizzy said.

"I have been used to consider limericks as the FOOD of friendship," said Darcy.

"Of a fine, stout, healthy friendship it may. Everything nourishes what is strong already. But if it be only a slight, thin sort of inclination, I am convinced that one good limerick will starve it entirely away."

Fortunately, Tony and I have a fine, stout friendship. :)


  1. Haha, what a fun limerick! It made me laugh, as did your comment, Mary.:)

  2. Very cute Mary! I love the "all stuck up and arsy" part. Hshs!

    Lucky you to have such a great friend. His blogging is great too!

  3. I just love the word "arsy." It really suits Darcy.
