Limerick Ode To Olympic Beach Volleyball

Limerick Ode To Olympic Beach Volleyball
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Watch those barely clad women play ball
On the beach, keeping viewers in thrall,
Gals hoping to volley
Olympic wins. Golly!
I’m surprised they wear clothing at all.

    You know I’m not really a prude
    But I don’t play ball in the nude
    By all natural accounts
    I have things that bounce
    And even a few that protrude

    You know I could really get hurt
    By bouncing my things in the dirt
    So give me some shorts
    and support of some sorts
    I’m really not all that pervert

    seriously…how do they keep circulation in their butts and legs…those suits look a few years too small…

  3. Mama Zen says:

    Ain’t that the truth!

  4. Yes–I think they should make the men play in banana hammocks.

    Very clever as always! And as spare and pointed as the suits! k.

    Do men play beach volleyball?
    It doesn’t seem likely at all.
    All that sweat and macho
    all that muscle and so
    it is really quite implausiball.

    haha….sometimes i’m wondering if that’s the reason why beach volley is so popular..smiles

  8. well my famly have tickets for a match…so I’ll let you know what they think!! son-in-law exceedingly pleased!!!

    Yes, I think it’s fairly obvious why this sport was included. Skeet shooting, otoh, still perplexes me.

    Clever poem, Mad — clever responses too.
    I don’t think I have one that will do.
    I don’t have a tv
    No sport do I see
    So I can’t really write anything new.

  11. This is cool and funny:)

    Sexist outfits & uniforms…designed by males w/wee dix. Love Susan’s “banana hammocks.”

    Nude volleyball would be so great
    Just think of the views it would rate
    Lacking a barrier
    Problems get hairier
    When sandy parts begin to grate
