37. Shall We Dance?

Eugene Fodor, 1905-1991, founded the travel guide publications that still bear his name.  He's not to be confused in my limerick with the Colorado-born violinist of the same name.  That one died in 2010 at the age of 60 from drug-use complications.

Here I'm rhyming on yet another word that I hear mispronounced (as TERP-si-CORE.)  Nope, it's terp-SIC-o-REE.  Google her if you'd like to be further a-mused...

A maiden well-versed in terpsichore
Placed her foot on the barre made of hichore
Out travelled an odor
Described by E. Fodor
As somewhere 'tween tuna and chichore.

  1. That dancer wondered why she was always being followed by seagulls at the beach!
