The Woman From Mexico.

I was eager to try out my new coloured pens, and this drawing of SALSA the red-head was the result. As I was drawing Salsa, humorous thoughts came to mind which resulted in the limerick beneath.

There was a woman from Mexico,

Who ate too much hot salsa in her burrito.
It colored her tresses flaming red,
And gave her “too much energy”, she said,
Now all she wants to do is the fandango!

The British wordplay and recreational mathematics expert Leigh Mercer (1893–1977) devised the following mathematical limerick:


This is read as follows:
A dozen, a gross, and a score
Plus three times the square root of four
Divided by seven
Plus five times eleven
Is nine squared and not a bit more.

DID YOU KNOW

The limerick form was popularized by Edward Lear in his first book, A Book of Nonsense (1846), and later work, More Nonsense Pictures, Rhymes, Botany, etc.. (1872). Lear wrote 212 limericks, mostly considered nonsense literature. It was customary at the time for limericks to accompany an absurd illustration of the same subject.
