Here is Ron Lies’ Limerick of the Week:
A STUDY IN SCARLET
Now Watson did have a bull pup,
Although it did never show up.
Though where it did go, there is no way to know,
Perhaps they had pup for their sup.
Author: William S Dorn BSI, DWNP 2005

A note from Chips: As a animal lover I was a little disturbed by this limerick’s last line. It seemed to be a put-down of Mrs. Hudson’s dinners as to just what the meat might be. I brought up these points to Bill. He thanked me and said if I would like to write a better one I was welcome to try. I tried and failed. Maybe someone in our group would like to try?

Not sure that it’s better, by any means, but it’s different –
“Perhaps he sold pup for a tup.”
Excellent suggestion, “Galahad.” Thank you!
