Happy “Use Your Common Sense Day.” (November 4)

Limerick Ode To “Use Your Common Sense Day”
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There are people with brilliance immense
Who lack, nonetheless, common sense.
Despite great comprehension,
You might have to mention:
“Wear clothing. This blizzard’s intense.”

Limerick Ode To The GPS

Every so often, I read about someone who blindly obeys his car’s GPS and ends up under water. Here’s the latest incident, involving common sense-challenged Japanese tourists who try to drive to an island.

Limerick Ode To The GPS
By Madeleine Begun Kane

If your car’s GPS tells you, “Go,”
But there’s water ahead, you should know
That it’s better to park.
Check your map. Find an ark.
Or else gear up for driving in l’eau.

UPDATE: April 5 is Read A Road Map Day.
