Limerick: Hum

Lovely weather, but we are so unused to this heat that it is hard to do much. However, I managed to keep cooler last night, which was a God send.

MadKane set this 'hum' Limerick challenge some time ago. I wrote this and promptly lost it, so now I've found it I'm adding it today.

Those with a tendency to hum
Really should be consulting their mum
Since etiquette dictates,
That when searching for mates,
It is best to avoid smelling rum.


  1. Hi Madeleine - I'm sure glad I live on the coast - it's cooler. Funny you mention a limerick ... I love them - they are such fun ... and yours re humming is fun to think about ... yes don't smell the rum! Take care and enjoy the summer and hope all is well ... oddly I have a post with a limerick in (written by me) going up tomorrow ... cheers for now - Hilary

    1. Ah yes, a cool sea breeze would be most welcome. Yes I don't like the taste of rum not rum smells for that matter :D! Oh I look forward to seeing your limerick.

  2. Hi Madeline- it is cool this week here in the Allegheny mountains of Western NY. A nice break from the heat. Phew.
    Love the limerick

    1. OOh cool would be welcome, though cold not so. Bless you thanks Gail
