No Sweat Divorce

No Sweat Divorce (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

“My husband and I are estranged,”
Said the wife, “’cause he acts so deranged.
His behavior’s aberrant
And vexingly errant.
I wish he could just be exchanged.”  

(Can you imagine if divorce were as easy as shopping? And no, this isn’t autobiographical … although I do enjoying poking fun at my wonderful husband from time to time.)

    […] And second is a limerick from Mad Kane’s Humor Blog. Who doesn’t like a good limerick? The Listener Limerick Challenge is always one of my favorite parts of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me. Did you hear Paula Poundstone’s tribute to Carl Castle this weekend? Brilliant! […]

    A limerick? My spirit takes flight!
    Especially on this holiday night.
    Your humorous disparage
    On the topic of Marriage
    Has brought me a bit of delight.

  5. Now there’s a thought – – – window shopping would take on a whole new meaning eh?

    I don’t know if I’d go so far as to exchange my husband, but what about just taking him in for service from time to time?
