by Joel Kravitz

A Real Danger To America

I wrote these limericks back in 2020. After Trump was defeated, I thought he would “go away,” literally and figuratively – go build hotels and golf courses in Russia, or something like that. Didn’t happen, because diseases don’t just go away, they become lethal.

A Will Rogers Learn By Doing (Or Not Doing) Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

Will Rogers electric fence lesson

Will Rogers is one of my idols. He had such a way of making sense of  politics, politicians and mankind in general, and he did it in such a clever, witty, yet not offensive manner. He was everything that pundits aren’t now.

An Answer To The Trending Internet Question – “What Will Your Thanksgiving Menu Be?” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

Thanksgiving dinner

Internet Foodies are in a frenzy. They can only think about what are they going to make for Thanksgiving, how will they serve it, what will the table look like, and how much leftovers will there be? They are focused on the feast. Me, not so much. Don’t get me wrong, I love turkey, stuffing et all, but I can do without the fixing it. Then while amusing myself surfing the net reading the foodie fantasies, I discovered the answer to the “I can do without fixing it” dilema is in a can. WooHoo!

A National Ice Cream Sandwich Day Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

ice cream sandwich day

The ice cream sandwich ranks as the second best-selling ice cream novelty in America. The average number of ice cream sandwiches eaten per second nationally is 48. Versions of the ice cream sandwich have been around since the turn of the twentieth century with the rectangular shaped cookies and vanilla ice cream sandwich being introduced in 1945

The cookie and ice cream combination
Has been a long-time sensation.
The frozen novelty treat
Can not be beat….
And now there’s an Ice Cream Sandwich Day celebration.
