Rhuby's word choices made me splenetic:
Every limerick I tried was pathetic,
I would splutter and choke
Like I'd swallowed spoke.
All the humor I found was synthetic.

A young lady aspiring to model
Who thought that the job was a doddle
Exclaimed with a cry
“I’ll my views modify!
“They expect me to pose wearing sod all!
wink

GILL - GIRAFFE

(You want synthetic humor? I'll give you synthetic humor!)

Consider the fish-cum-giraffe.
The thought if its gills makes me laugh:
...With the length if its neck
...They must stretch out like Heck
And measure a foot and a half!

I’d like to honour the Cumbrian Lad
Who’ll do owt fer a laff*, without being a Cad
Who’ll gurn** through a horse-collar
And not ask half-a-dollar***
Nor mind being thought to be mad!


* Northern English dialect = do anything for a laugh
** Gurning
***English slang for two-shillings-and-sixpence (old money) – dates from the long-past time when the US dollar was worth five GB shillings

SIGHT - SIGNALIZE

Just think of those index words: GILL - GIRAFFE.

It wasn't that much of a stretch, really. (Do I dare trot out that old Pooh quotation again, about a Bear of Very Little Brain?)
