The truth about Lady Godiva:
She slicked down her hair with saliva;
She threw off her coat,
Saddled up her best goat,
Then she took on Tom Peep for a fiva.

CODEX - COGNIZANT

That last line. I stood up and shouted a laugh and I've never shouted a laugh before now. Thanks, Tromboniator.

You're welcome, jj. I had nearly the same reaction when I thought of it.

"I am cognizant", said the librarian,
A distinguished and wise antiquarian,
"Of the fact that this tome
An old codex from Rome
Was defaced by a Gaulish barbarian".

Wonderful, yes, but strange.
What are the odds that a Podunk village like London would have two great limerick masters?
I'm not saying that Rhubarb Commando is A C Bowden and vice versa.
I'm just saying... whistle

Ever see then on the same stage at the same time? cool

My mum once went to a very snobby airforce ball dressed....or should that be 'undressed'! as Lady Godiva, Peter. She wore a flesh coloured swimsuit and a long blonde wig. She even rode in on a real horse. She got a standing ovation.

Loved both of your limericks and AC, yours reminded me of the Asterix stories I enjoyed.

I rarely see Rhuby in London (though, in truth, I've never been there), but "great limerick master" is certainly fitting. Candy you're right, I've never seen the two together, either. Makes you wonder.

I never ran across either of them when I was in London, of
course the pubs I was in there was singing not limerick
composing.
