1793. Colon crawlin'

Gay Percy lives life as an herbalist
And he's also a fine cruciverbalist
When the hour's too late
To pick up a hot date
He goes home and has fun as a gerbilist.


  1. Not inspired by A Word A Day. My older brother (not Okiejokey) was visiting last week and wondered if I worked crosswords to help build my vocabulary. I said, "Not often -- I'm not much of a cruciverbalist."

    He had never heard or seen the term (but then he's a classical pianist.) Anyway, I decided to try it in a limerick. I suppose the gerbil reference was understood by you, Dave, and I hope by other readers. If not, you'd all better get in Gere with pop. culture! :-)
