Today is Limerick Day!
Limerick Day is observed on the birthday of the great limerick writer Edward Lear, born on May 12, 1812, who encouraged everyone to write limericks!
The Space Alien decided to observe Limerick Day by writing some limericks, including one in honor of Your Editor!
Here is some of the Space Alien's original work:1. To My Editor:
I'm lucky to have a great Editor,
Who checks every comma and let-ti-ter!
Despite my bad spelling,
She never starts yelling,
She just tries to make it all bet-ti-ter!

We look forward to the Gazette with such glee
And all the fine news we shall see
It’s a welcome respite
When your day goes to &%*$
Now where are my crumpets and tea
The readers of every fine issue,
Whether humorous or requiring a tissue,
Send warm greetings this day
And take a moment to say
We love you so much and we miss you
And for the Space Alien themself
The Space Alien’s a very fine friend
One’s sprits they lift and they mend
At tachyonic speeds
Attending to needs
From sunup until the days end
Your adoring readers.
