Goofy Poems and Limericks
A keyboard poem: "Hatless Atlas"
hat less at less point at star
backbrace double base pound space bar
dash at cash and slash base rate
wow open tab at bar is great
semi backquote plus cash huh DEL
comma pound double tilde bar close BEL
A limerick based on ((12 + 144 + 20 + (3 * 4^1/2)) / 7) + (5 * 11) = 9^2 + 0
A Dozen, a Gross and a Score,
plus three times the square root of four,
divided by seven,
plus five times eleven,
equals nine squared and not a bit more.
A mosquito was heard to complain
That a chemist had poisoned his brain
The cause of his sorrow
There once was a girl named Irene
Who lived on distilled kerosene
But she started absorbin'
A new hydrocarbon
And since then has never benzene.
A limerick in honor of mathematician Paul Erdös (rhymes with Kurdish)
A conjecture both deep and profound
Is whether the circle is round.
In a paper of Erdös
Written in Kurdish
A counterexample is found.
Limerick (thanks to Philip Taylor)
A physicist named O'Leary
Had ideas that made us all weary
When we said "It's all twaddle"
He said "Just a model!
I never once called it a theory!"
