Another Limerick Ode To “International Nagging Day” (August 14)

Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

It’s Nagging Day. Please don’t applaud
All those prodders who act like they’re god,
As they talk themselves hoarse:
“Go do this!” “Take that course!”
Here’s a thought: one-way tickets abroad.

Happy International Nagging Day! (August 14)

Limerick Ode To The Posture Police

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

It seems fitting, somehow, that I read about the LumoBack Sensor on International Nagging Day. It “straps around your lower waist to track your posture and vibrates whenever you slouch.”

Limerick Ode To The Posture Police
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The LumoBack Sensor’s a grouch—
It nags and berates when I slouch:
By dispensing bad vibes,
It poor-posture proscribes.
Shouldn’t slouching be cool on a couch?

Note from Mad Kane: I’ve never actually tried this gadget. For all I know, having your “lower waist” (as opposed to your upper waist?) vibrate is a delightful experience.

Why’s there an “International Nagging Day?” Beats the heck out of me!

International Nagging Day’s here,
Which is hardly a reason to cheer.
Why celebrate scolding?
This date ain’t worth holding—
Even naggers are likely to jeer.

Ode to A Nag
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There once was a nag known as Ag
Who was always displaying the flag.
Her patriot airs
Often earned her dark glares
And the theft of her flag as a gag.
