Darn these crummy bifocals. Yesterday I thought I read the following headline:
"Cruel winter's latest
insults bears downeast"
Then I read it again:
"Cruel winter's latest insult bears down on East"
Well thank goodness. I'd hate to think some rude "latest" is going around insulting bears in Maine.
It gave me such a grin that I have been inspired to "limerize" the following poem:
IT'S NOT POLITE TO INSULT BEARS
by Kim Norman
The bulletin caused me to frown,
and my brain wondered, "Black bears? or brown?"
Then I found my opaque,
Ursa Major mistake
was confusing a verb for a noun.
