So my housemate and I just started playing with limericks tonight. I’ve been having fun with Cow limericks and we started to co-create some together. She thinks the word ‘puttanesca’ is just the best. And that is all that I’m going to say about ‘puttanesca’. ;~)
(literally “whore’s style spaghetti” in Italian)
There once was a puttanesca
that loved to drink very cold fresca
she has it with ice
it tastes quite nice
for those hot and juicy days at her deska.
There once was a guy named Pete
Who had horribly stinky feet
He sealed them in
To harness the sin
And discovered it was really the wheat.
I am the puttanesca from Nantucket
Don’t even try to compare me to a bucket
I keep myself clean
And try not to be mean
When I’m out in public I dearly tuck it.
Francesca was a puttanesca
Who was very proud of her little nesta
The birds that flew in
Always called it a win
They thought it was the primo and besta.
