Happy Limerick Day

What is a limerick? A limerick is a poem with five lines. Lines 1, 2, and 5 have seven to ten syllables and rhyme with one another. Lines 3 and 4 have five to seven syllables and also rhyme.

The following limerick is from Enslow's April Fool's Day Jokes to Tickle Your Funny Bone:

When logging onto the Internet
It's almost always a very safe bet
That the fake "news" you'll find
Will be old and behind—
Or it won't quite have happened yet.

This title, and the others in the Funnier Bone Jokes series, are available from your preferred vendor, local bookstore,, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. They are available in library, paperback, and eBook format.

Age-Appropriate Jokes for April Fool's Day

Last night, we gave a paperback copy of Enslow's new April Fool's Day Jokes to Tickle Your Funny Bone to a young boy. He shared a few of the gags with the assembled siblings, friends, and stray adults. (Think of it as a very informal focus group.) Everyone had a good time, which was the point.

Here are a couple of samples from this new Enslow book:
Q: Why did the fool bring his computer to the dentist?
A:  It had a megabyte.

Q: What do ducks like to watch?
A: Duckumentaries.

Q: How did the fool find the flea bite on her body?
A: She started from scratch.

These and many other age-appropriate April Fool's Day jokes are available in author Amelia LaRoche's 48-page book.The title, part of Enslow's "Funnier Bone Jokes" series, is available in paperback for $7.95 from Enslow Publishers. It may also be ordered from your preferred vendor, Barnes and Noble, or Amazon. A library-bound edition of April Fool's Day Jokes to Tickle Your Funny Bone is available directly from Enslow for $15.95; that price represents a 25% school/library discount from Enslow's list price.
