Surprise

For today's Mag 107, Tess used an image created by Sarolta Bán.  However,  I couldn't resist adding a Jinksy twist to better suit the two limericks I wrote...Apologies all round!

Here's the first:-
There was a young film buff from Towcester**
who fell for the girl on the poster.
"I'm her number one fan.
If I were leading man,
I'd choose her at once for my co-star!"
And here's the second:-
A photographer chap from Kildare
filmed a model who tended to stare,
and her face on his wall
made him feel oh, so small
as her silent eyes shouted "Beware!"
**For my American Blogpals, here's a guide link to pronunciation of this place name!

  6. I loved the cross-eyed stare almost as much as the limericks, Jinksy. Thank you for the funny interpretation, including a pronunciation guide. How helpful is that? =D

    1. Do write me a limerick if you feel the urge, Doc - I'd happily add it to the post once it passed the Jinksy giggle test!

    1. Easy! Cut,copy and flip vertically before re-pasting, using my Paint programme, Frances! Of course, then they needed a little artistic touching up too...but that would be telling...
