National Clerihew Day - a challenge to forum members
What is National Clerihew Day? Funny you should ask. July 10th of each year celebrates National Clerihew Day in the United States.
Edmund Clerihew Bentley created the whimsical, four-line biographical poem.
An English novelist and humorist, Edmund Clerihew Bentley (July 10, 1875 – March 30, 1956), was a 16-year-old student when he thought up the lines for his first ever clerihew.
Sir Humphry Davy
He lived in the odium
Of having discovered sodium
As with most poetry, the Clerihew is defined by a set of rules. It must contain four lines, rhyming couplets of AA/BB, a person’s name in the first line, say something about that person and it should be humorous. It is meant to be a funny poem, of course.
So here's the challenge and it could be fun. Create your own clerihew on any topic you like - this forum has had a ton of likely topics, like gator haters, bourbon, BBQ, what's wrong with UGA recruiting...the list goes on. We might even select a winner.
To help in this process, it's also National Pina Colada Day.
A Pina Colada
Goes well with a tostada
Too much of one
And you'll come undone.
