One Christmas when I was around ten years old, I wrote a limerick for each person present at the Christmas lunch. I've kept 2 of them over the years, as these were the best limericks, and they matched their subjects well. Both Bett and Dave are now departed.



There was lady called Bett,
Who used to wear a twin set,
Her leg gave her jip,
And so did her hip,
Especially when the weather was wet.




There was a man called Dave,
Who use to rave and rave,
When he started to talk,
Away they would walk,
And his wife would tell him to behave.





At school in Year 12 one lunch time, me and my friends made up these sayings to match people's surnames. The first letter of each line spells out the names.
