A Literary Limerick – Sorcerer’s (Philosopher’s) Stone


Today’s Music: The Eels – Hey Man
Days ’til Spring: 76
Today’s Question: Why the hell is there a nail clipper in the pocket of my ski jacket?!?

Alright folks, I got nothing. I was going to go with the first naked bar dance, but I actually need to write that down before I post it. Be patient.
So instead, as a way to separate the weak from the strong (read that as the sane from the not), you’re getting a Harry Potter limerick.

Remember, I’m doing this for your own good.
Because it certainly isn’t for mine.

Don’t worry, I’ve left you an amusing video at the bottom as brain bleach.

*If Warner Brothers, JK Rowling, or Bloomsbury have an issue with this for some bizzarro copyright reason, let me know and I”ll take it down. Really, you’d be doing the world a favor…

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
A young boy with a scar on his head
His parents, both sadly were dead
When he reached age eleven,
thought he’d been admitted to heaven

But had to fight the “2 headed” teacher instead.

You’re welcome.

      Confirming once again my anecdotal evidence that all of us who ever enjoyed working in the restaurant business are slightly…off…

        • Didn’t know you’d done time in restaurants, John. Or do you just know a lot of people who did?

          • Owned a coffee house in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We roasted our own coffee and had a small lunch and breakfast menu as well. 24/7/365, way to much work. It was called Joe Beans Coffee Roasting Company, which is why I have Joe Beans scattered about my profile etc.

            • Yeah, the total commitment is why I’ve never really considered owning my own place.
              Very cool. I wondered what the Joe Beans was.
              Was the romanticism of having your own place why you opened it? Or was it the only opportunity at the time?

                L earned 2 things. Don’t open a restaurant and don’t have partners. It was an opportunistic want. We tried it didn’t work. Hindsigh.we should have done wholesale only and not do the coffeehouse

  3. Capricious waggishness and silly goofiness you just got it all kinds of going on with the limericks – and brave too! Oh my goodness I didn’t know he was supposed to go to heaven at eleven? You always teach me something new and I am never disappointed when I leave here. Befuddled – wait not – surprised? – nooooooo – enlightened and enriched? hmmmmm yes! I feel enlightened and enriched and go ahead and throw befuddled in just for shits and giggles and because I am feeling it today. I haven’t decided yet if I came to that from your limerick or I picked it up somewhere else. I’ll keep you updated. Anyways you Rock! Of course and always,. and it was a lovely way to start my morning along with my coffee. Almost as good as a donut. – ALmost πŸ™‚ Peace

    As to the nail clippers is your ski jacket: don’t worry. I once found a mitten in one of my ski jacket’s pockets. It wasn’t mine.

    • Thanks Rachael. The song in that video is a perfect example of the sort of singsong mayhem that goes through my brain when I’m not using it.
      Which is most of the time…

  14. I like today’s Limerick. Captures that book quite well in 35 words. Great music today, too! And the Mysterious Ticking Noise has long been among my kids’ all time favorite YouTube videos. You got yourself a winning post right here.

    Would you believe me if I said I had actually seen that HP clip before? haha – I have several young nephews who are big fans..I’ve never read the books but have to secretly admit that I own most of the movies….haha (and just watched the “last” one this past weekend)…you have a fun bloghome over here!!!

    Like

    • I’d believe you – I think that clip has a lot of virtual miles on it…
      Your secret is safe with me – and the movies keep pretty close to the books, so you aren’t missing any big themes, but some of the details are better in the books (like crazy cat lady form 5)
      Thanks for the compliment, whiteladyinthehood! You’re welcome to hang out whenever you like.
      Bear and wine coolers are in the fridge, homemade bread and lasagna on the counter, and tequila is currently banned.
      But it will be back soon enough…
