Limerick Ode To National Escargot Day

Today may be National Escargot Day, but I’m still NOT eating them. I don’t care HOW much garlic and wine you slip in:

Limerick Ode To National Escargot Day
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There are foods I won’t touch on a bet.
They may well be quite tasty, and yet—
Creepy dishes like snails—
I would rather chew nails.
Escargot’s a no-go. Sorry. Nyet!

(You can find more of my food humor here.)

    This seems like a perfect time to reprise one of my recent Limerick-off entries:

    A snail was recounting his woes:
    “Those gardeners want to dispose
    of my body with salt –
    being here’s not my fault –
    and my friends have become escargots!”

    There are foods I won’t touch on a bet
    Sensational, exotic or whatever you get
    Taste is my bother
    It affects no other
    But I enjoy food the way it is prepared


  3. I couldn’t face eating snails either!

    How disgusting it is to eat snails
    When you think of their slimeacious trails
    But a chicken’ll eat a worm
    And other things that squirm
    And butter with garlic never fails!
