Thank you! You have just given me an excuse to make this a
multilingual document by posting the following *thing* which I have
just discovered:

        Une jolie epousette à Tours
        voulait de jig-jig tous le jours.
                Mais le mari disait, "Non!
                De trop n'est pas bon!
        Mon derriere exigé du secours!"

I would have sworn that limericks were confined to English (and Lojban).
