We love ‘fish and chips’ in the UK (for chips translate as ‘fries’). and you inspired me to respond with this never going to be a masterpiece verse or worse: Potatoes don’t wear jackets. “We’re boiling”, they will say. ‘Never mind young Murphy, We’re having chips, today!” Best wishes Trevor Reply James A.

Good limericks (like yours) and good puns never fail to brighten my day! I hope you’ll submit more of your verse in the future. Thanks for the smile.

Limericks done well – as this one is – are a treat. Reply banker February 23, 2018 Thank you, my friend! I appreciate you!
