Chic Rhymes To Pass The Time On Limerick Day!

Chic Rhymes To Pass The Time On Limerick Day!


Ladies, today is no ordinary day! In fact, it is on this day, May 12th, that we celebrate National Limerick Day! If you’re not familiar, Limerick Day is celebrated every year as a nod to the poet Edward Lear who was known for his silly somewhat nonsensical poetry. Of course, this also means we celebrate the birth of the limerick as it was born from his 1864 work, the “Book of Nonsense.” To refresh your memory, a limerick is a brief, quick-witted, five line poem following a specific rhyme scheme: The first two lines rhyme with each other, as well as the fifth line, while the third and fourth lines rhyme together. Sure, you could compose a limerick about anything (and believe me, I’ve tried!) but, given that we all have a passion for fashion, I used that theme as my guide and gave this funny little poem a try. Enjoy these and feel free to pass on!

About Maggie E
Maggie’s love of words dates back to the 4th grade when she was told she had a knack for the English language. Persuaded by her teacher to compete in a national spelling bee, she enthusiastically agreed, only to be unenthusiastically eliminated in round 2. Fortunately, things could only go up from there. Maggie majored in Advertising at Boston University and shortly after graduating started a tutoring company for college admissions essay prep. She spent a year and a half as the primary copywriter for JDate, as well other niche dating sites, before moving into the e-commerce/tech start-up world as a beauty and fashion writer. Currently, Maggie is the Senior Copywriter at JustFab, constantly on the hunt for the most clever shoe puns imaginable.

I am assuming you are not a horse person. I guess you might consider it barn yard slang.

Whoas actually would be what you tell a horse to stop. Though in this particular context I think it was an error, it is indeed, a word. :)

"Whoas" really? You realize that's not a word, right? I believe the word you want is "woes". When in doubt look it up, otherwise you embarrass an entire shoe company.

Wow, that was rude! You never know, it was probably a typo or auto-correct. Everyone makes mistakes. You seem to be the result of one!
