A limerick for PZ

Please raise up your scotches and soda
For that lover of cephalopoda;
He’s just turning fifty,
The fundies are miffed we
Won’t soon be seeing his coda.

Happy birthday, PZ!

  1. Here's mine. I threw it together but don't want to lose it:

    "Fifty years have gone, and winter's grown a little colder;

    The sophomores of Morris town are smaller every day,

    And that blogging daughter's out to steal my flock away.

    And with Creationists about and lying ever bolder,

    Why should this biologist get out of bed today?"

    "Fifty years?" I heard my own voice say.

    "Really, sir, I thought you were a little older."
