When I was young, I used to love checking out joke books and books of limericks from the elementary school library. I loved to read them to my family and hear their responses...especially hearing them laugh. Sometimes, my parents would recall an old limerick that they knew, and teach it to me.
When I became a teen, my sense of humor continued to grow, especially along the lines of wordplay. My brother and I share a love of good movie dialogue. We still recite our favorite lines to each other. We found some silly poems when we were teens and used to recite them to make each other laugh. David and Katie used to do the same thing together.
Yesterday, David came home from school and told me that one of his teachers had read some funny poetry aloud to the class. He found a website and started to read them to me.
They were some of the same ones that I had loved as a teenager.
I laughed until I cried.
The site of the poems that made me laugh is HERE. There are lots of others there, as well. I'm sure you serious types can find something to suit you, but I want to offer the silly ones to the rest of you! Mason Williams ROCKS.
How 'bout them moose goosers? How 'bout them doodle dashers? Anyone?
