Limerick Riddle

Friday, November 9th, 2012

Can you guess the last line (or last word) of this limerick? I’ve left empty spaces between lines 4 and 5, so you can guess before reaching the end. (If Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me! can do this, why can’t I?)

Limerick Riddle
By Madeleine Begun Kane

It’s often left after a flood.
When you throw it, I might say, “Oh, crud!”
I’m beginning to fear
That my meaning’s unclear…




The word that I’m slinging is “mud.”
