Good one, Bean. Here's an onnickmerick for your two words:

In Oslo, each person you see
Has a long and precise family tree.
Whether Swedish, Norwegian,
Icelandic, or Frisian,
Each guards his forebears jealously.

MEAN - MECHANICAL

Since there are no takers, I'll move this along...

Al was a Mercedes mechanic.
Al's buddy arrived in a panic.
"My car's turning green!"
"I see what you mean.
"See a priest, 'cause it's something satanic."

And here's a variation on a classic, using the same two words (not recommended for the sensitive):

Click to reveal..
An engineer fellow named Paul
Had a truly mechanical ball.
The mean of its weight
Plus his pecker, times eight,
Plus two fifths, times ... oh, wait... f**k it all.

MAIDENLY - MAJESTY

How mighty in war was His Majesty
but occasionly he dressed maidenly
When he fought the Huns
The Huns wons.
But worse:
His gown by Dior was a catastrophe.

Yes, Beck, both of your limricks are funny, but I'll have to admit the vulgar one was the funnyist. I shoulda/coulda made this rhyme days ago but I couldn't stop reading the most excellent MARCH OF THE MICROBES by JOHN L INGRAHAM. Here's a poor but quick version:

No, microbes are not mean they are merely mechanical
A hodge-podge of lifethings we can't see, "microbes" is semantical
They make our wine they make our beer
They make our snow and atmosphere
Sure some'll kill us, but few are mean and fewer pathological. smile

Thanks. I can't claim kudos for the hidden one: I heard it in more-or-less that form in 1967 at an engineering school.

There once was a man named Delay
Who put off most things, you might say.
With a chance to ram Page,
He said, "Think of my age!
Could we wait for a nice rainy day?"

One day at the old Mercantile
As Alec was buying oatmeal
He asked: “Y’ no object
That my member’s erect?”
And she whispered, “No, sir, it’s ideal!”

Oops! I tried to "hide" it like Beck does, but I goofed up somehow.

It pays to use the "Preview" button. That limerick's worth seeing, though! Good job, Bean!

Now, we need two more words.
