Go With The Flow? It’s A No! (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I rarely just go with the flow.
My temper’ment makes me say “no”
To the trends that prevail.
I’ve an impulse to rail,
So I won’t hold my water. No go!

Happy “Idiom Idiocy Day”

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

I’ll bet you didn’t know that April 18th is Idiom Idiocy Day. How do you celebrate it? By using idioms amusingly in verse, jokes, or short prose.

Limerick Ode To Idiom Idiocy Day
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A fellow was biding his time
And refusing to get off the dime.
He was dragging his feet
And could not take the heat.
His idiom use? It’s a crime!

Author’s Note: Idiom Idiocy Day is a brand new annual holiday established by none other than MOI. Why? Because it doesn’t exist, and it NEEDS to.

Toying With Kites

Toying With Kites (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The sight of a kite in the sky
Is delightful and lovely, so why
Is it quite impolite
To say, “Go fly a kite!”
This idiom just doesn’t fly.

Don’t forget to celebrate Go Fly A Kite Day every June 15th. (It’s believed to be the anniversary of Ben Franklin’s 1752 kite experiment.)
