Lucky Break




Lucky Break


(a limerick)


Now there once was a boy while in traction
From his learning was missing-in-action
He remarked "Why it's cool
to skip two fifths of school,
'cause I'll miss the whole unit on fractions!"





(*For lovers of wordplay : boy breaks his leg, but he's not a bit broken up about it, since he gets a long break from school and studying broken numbers...fractions! So I guess you could say he had a"Lucky Break." He's an egg-head anyway!*)

(*also approximately one third of this limerick is in italics*)

That was a lot of fun -- both the limerick and the wordplay.

I hope you'll consider participating in my weekly Limerick-Offs. They're every Monday.

So glad you stopped by.
