REVENUE RIBALDRY

A gift-card firm's revenue fell
When its products became hard to sell,
For the cards' saucy jokes
Enraged godly folks:
"Such ribaldry sends you to Hell!"

OPENER - OTHERWISE

A Cockney, of mood antiseptic,
Of my claim of "gourmet" was a skeptic.
I can open 'er up
So on rations we sup
But in all otherwise he's dyspeptic


(I think I'm out of practice)

Writing limericks is often a strain,
And to read them can cause some folks pain.
When the syntax we stretch
Cause we sticklers to retch,
And to call out for us to refrain.

(You're not alone.)

So you would call Argus Filch, Filius Flitwick, Rubeus Hagrid, House-elves, Minerva McGonagall, Poppy Pomfrey, Severus Snape, Pomona Sprout, Sybill Trelawney and the whole crew "Staph Albus" ?

STEEPEN STEREO

To steepen the contrast of tone
That comes from the left and right zone,
This gadget desyncs
The lateral links
Attached to your stereophone.

Only if you mistake the heavily laden swallow for Albus Dumbledore's phoenix...

Albus, being a known headmaster, the facultative discussion wasn't lost on me. Too cute. blush I loved pathology and the Harry Potter series. wink
