Dorothy Parker and Girls Who Have Rashes: Limerick Off Monday

I’ve met several women with rashes. They’re waiting to meet you, too….

Limerick Drill (Limerick-Off Monday) of MAD KANE’S HUMOR BLOG challenges readers/writers to write, obviously, LIMERICKS! This week’s suggested first line that I chose was:

A girl was upset by a rash…

Kiss me. It's just a temporary facial rash.   (pic by Randy Mazie)

Dorothy Parker and Men Seldom Make Passes at Girls Who Have Rashes*

1.

A girl was upset by a rash
she got worrying ’bout not having cash
So she married Joel
who bought and sold coal
and kept her ass happy in ash

2.

A girl was upset by a rash
when her boyfriend brought home succotash
she wondered how he
wasn’t sick just like she,
but he strained it first through his moustache

3.

A girl was upset by a rash
from eating folk’s leftover trash
I urge you not try it
it is a bad diet
and I don’t recommend the goulash

4.

A girl was upset by a lip rash
she got from her boyfriend’s moustache
she cut off his hair
while dead drunk, my dear,
Then later got caught up in whiplash.

* A loose invocation to Dorothy Parker’s:

“Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses.”

Some of my favorite Parkerisms are:

“Tell him I was too fucking busy– or vice versa.”

“I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
after four I’m under my host.”

“Take me or leave me; or, as is the usual order of things, both.”

Have some fun...
