There was a young lady from Nyon
Who didn't have anything on
She said, "It's not rude
I'm artistically nude!
So who cares where my knickers have gone?"
I'm sorry, it just happened. I alluded to this infamous book earlier in the week, and today we went on a day-trip to a town a little further down the valley from Geneva...
Why I Read This Book: I'd been fond of this book for a long time—someone dear to me gave me the hardcover as a birthday gift—but I'd never read it. The Red Cross annual book sale had a copy of the paperback in very good condition, so I bought it; somewhat to my surprise, I ended up reading it cover to cover.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, at least as much for Asimov's reminiscences as for the limericks themselves.

Some were really funny, some were really just groan worthy. Some he "cheated" on and they only work if you purposely mispronounce some words.

Really, the most interesting part was his description about each one, when he came up with it and why.
Nothing is better than the king of science fiction sharing his vagina poetry with you.
